If I quiet the mind, I'm I stopping it from doing it's job?

It is always a good idea to take some time to quiet the mind and switch off from the busyness of todays world. Please find two meditation programs that will help you do this and give you a chance to recharge and take time for yourself.

Are you different from your mind? An action to quiet the mind in itself is a thought process trying to control the mind (collection of all experiences and thoughts), hence it would always fails. To observe your mind as it is without any desire to control or condemn or conflict with it is the highest form of observing it.

It is not needed. You can't, there is a purpose in your mind to reveal what it wants you to acknowledge. The trick is to let it flow without limits so you learn about it. Once you let it be, your true self will be revealed. Meditation, wellness, however, you want to call it.
