Your withdrawal from today’s world can have many positive effects on your health. That is why so-called ‘silent retreats’ are often organised. Medication and development are central to these kinds of events. These are events that are organized to escape from everyday life for a while. During the events, the intention is to talk as little as possible, so that you actually experience peace and quiet.
A ‘silent retreat’ is often organized to experience personal development. Many of us want to work on ourselves, but simply don’t have the time or space to do so. During a ‘silent retreat’, these kinds of elements are central. You are not distracted by your daily life and have the space and opportunity to develop yourself.
Many participants let us know that it has great benefits for their mental health. First of all, it would have positive effects on the extent to which you experience stress and anxiety in everyday life. After all, you are not busy with responsibilities or tasks that need to be done; you come to a complete rest for a while.
It is also beneficial for cultivating mental discipline. Many people are lived. During a ‘silent retreat’, it is precisely the intention that you take back control of your life and that you no longer sit in the passenger seat, but behind the wheel.
Emotionally and physically, it has positive effects on our bodies. The emotions we feel are triggered by the thoughts we have. The more thoughts, the more emotions. During a ‘silent retreat’, your brain comes to rest for a while and a lot of emotions are repressed. A lot of attention is also paid to the human body. When does the body send us signals that perhaps we should take it a little easier?
Finally, a ‘silent retreat’ ensures that you are back on the ground with both feet on the ground. Your phone is off-limits during these kinds of events. You relax completely because you don’t get any notifications, signals or messages from your phone. All this ensures that you can relax and enjoy the little things in life.
