The Silent TreatmentI spent 10 days at a silent meditation retreat so ... you don't have to.
Lose weight, get focus, boost creativity, and wake up fresh.
I survived a 10-Day Silent Meditation Retreat. No talking, reading, writing, no nada. 10 Days. This is what happened.
(Get it? This is about losing weight and The Skinny also means “The Summary.” I know, the laughs are just starting. This is, by the way, the type of insanity that I experienced after 10 days of silence. Pretty much everything was funny … OK, OK, I’ll stop.)
I put together an infographic because people regularly ask me what I got out of the 10 days of torture, I mean, of peaceful solitude and I can’t seem to answer briefly. So much happened in those 10 days.
- Did I reach enlightenment? Not that I know of.
- Did I find a deeper understanding of the universe and my place in it? Well, yeah, kinda.
- Did I talk with a deer. Yes.
But the “side effects” of such an endeavor were what are often most interesting to people I tell about it. You see, I’m into side effects, unexpected benefits, and accidental victories.
This is just a teaser, an hors d’oeuvre, a taste of what Every Single Day is all about. I’m not as interested in the 10-day challenge as I am in the long-term habits we can start from such an experiment.

P.S. I’m filing this under “Travel” because I went somewhere for 10 days, I’m just not sure where it was.
