30 Valuable Tips to Improve Quality of Life

29. The sound of silence

You might not have noticed it before, but when you think about it, there aren’t many minutes in the day where you can experience peace. If it isn’t the kids nagging you for something, it’s the traffic and the roads.

At the office, there is a constant buzz of computers and people talking. Just when you think you can get some peace, your spouse turns on the TV to watch a show.

Everything your ears take in, your mind has to process, whether conscious or subconscious. Spending time in silence will help your brain recuperate.

A 2013 study published in the journal Brain Structure and Function found that spending two hours in silence could regenerate cells in the hippocampus. This will help improve your memory and your ability to learn.
