Wordplay Wednesday™ 09/11/2019

Short, Sweet and oh, so Calm 

Some days need a few moments of quiet reflection. Morning, noon, or night … whenever it feels right … give your mind a rest … keep your soul at its best …

ATARAXIA (atʹɘ rakʹsē ɘ) n. – calmness of the mind and emotions, tranquility; also ataraxy (-rak’se). [WW #233]

There are never enough words in fiction or non-fiction to express tranquility. Ataraxia is a state many aspire to, as often as possible.
In this chaotic world, ataraxia is a must, to create the inner peace necessary to balance our lives.

Whatever your philosophy for coping, give ataraxia time in your day. Just five minutes to take a deep breath, push yourself away from work, and create calm. You will feel better for it.

Word Challenge: ATARAXIA. Too much cannot be said for making moments in your day just for you. Think about creative ways to make it happen, as you slip ataraxia into your week of serene writings.

Learning knows no prejudices or boundaries, and it isn’t fattening! Expanding your mind is a no-cost, simple joy. Do you feel that way too? What’s your inspiration? Share your creative genius and Wordplay Wednesday comments below.
