quiet

contemplation, meditation, stillness of the mind--awareness of things as they are and of the anxiety of ego-based activity; being, not just doing.

Researchers at the University of Virginia were recently amazed to discover that many people would rather self-administer painful shocks than sit quietly with their own thoughts for 15 minutes. They also found that men were significantly more likely to shock themselves than women. So what’s so bad about sitting alone and thinking? Study author Erin Westgate helps parse the results.
