the quiet game.

Standard

not my class, but looks like they’re playing the game too. 

when our class needs a break to calm down and relax

we play ‘the quiet game’

(an idea my daughter used when babysitting years ago)

which consists of nothing but lying down

not moving or making noise

yes, you can blink and breathe

last person left is the winner

sometimes there’s not even a winner

 they just love to play

they even ask to play

i tell them they’ve been so good

of course we can play

a win-win, i’d say.

 

 

“quiet is peace. tranquility. quiet is turning down the volume knob on life.

silence is pushing the off button. shutting it down. all of it. – Amir”

― Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

  1. I’m terrible at holding still. I always need to be doing something. It used to drive my cat crazy. All she wanted was a warm lap that would hold still. I think she was always secretly happy whenever I got sick because then I would sleep in bed all day.
