In the rush of daily life, it’s easy to overlook the power of small moments of stillness. Etty Hillesum, a young Jewish woman who wrote insightful diaries during the Holocaust, reminds us: “Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two breaths.”

The Power of Presence

Hillesum’s quote emphasizes finding peace in the present moment. Even brief pauses allow us to reconnect with ourselves.

Mindfulness in the Everyday

Paying attention to our breath is a simple yet profound tool for mindfulness. It centers us amidst life’s chaos.

Appreciation for the Small

Hillesum’s words encourage gratitude for the seemingly insignificant. These moments of rest are vital for our well-being.
