Peace & Quiet

Last Sunday my wife and I spent the day at the Scandinavian Spa in Whistler. It was an amazing experience. And the best part for me was the "silence" piece (of course!) 

I appreciated how they value and understand the power of silence. There were "silence" signs literally everywhere. And what is interesting is that the guests respected that.

I was telling my wife I wish we have these signs all around the city! :D Wouldn't that be awesome?

The following passage is from their website: The value of silence - β€œIn the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness." Silence is a source of great strength. We believe silence is essential to the experience of the Scandinavian baths. By embracing silence one finds inner stillness leading to complete relaxation.

Introvert-Extrovert Spectrum

Do you know where you fall on the introvert-extrovert spectrum? Are you oriented more towards the outer world or the inner world? Do you get more energy when you are around people or by yourself?

The more preference you have towards stimulating environment the more extroverted you are and vice versa. 

Whether you fall in the extrovert or introvert category (or somewhere between), it can have a significant influence on your career choice, relationships and overall lifestyle. 

One type isn't "better" than the other. Each tendency can have benefits and drawbacks depending on the situation. By better understanding your personality, however, you can learn how to play to your strengths.
