Lessen the Strive
Why do you want to live a quiet life? Try making a list of reasons why a quieter life is appealing to you.
Maybe you live in a noisy town or city and want to experience a calmer lifestyle or it could be that you find yourself spending too much time on social media and want to be more focused on in the present moment. Try creating a quiet room - no phones, no television, no laptops. Use it to meditate - just sit quietly, focussing on your breath or your body sensations. Or maybe connect with the present by noticing what sounds can be heard.
