Sometimes all you need is a moment of silence. Let your mind be still and parasympathetic nervous system calm in this guided moment of silence. Guided silence can be hosted inside or outside and is especially effective when combined to a little stroll in the nature. The duration of the guided silence can be anything between half an hour to an hour and it is a great way to freshen the brain amid a creative workshop.
