It would be wonderful if we could all live in the country in a stress free life, but reality is even in the country there are stresses and busy-ness. Creating a simple, good life is about your choices no matter where you live nor how noisy and busy the environment around you.
The quiet spot is within yourself. What goes on outside is just a distraction. Learning to block it out and find your center allows you to have quiet in a busy city. I know I live downtown in a large city. It takes practice, but it can be found. Of course searching out a coffee shop in a quiet hour, or a park, or library. Even the foyer of a large office building or hotel often has quiet seating in a corner where you can hang out for a while on your lunch hour or on the way home from work. Just do it and breath. 15 mins is enough to change your day.
