It is always in our power to retire into ourselves and ‘order the mind’. Today, take time to slow read this old meditation by Marcus Aurelius. And if a more modern translation fits you better here, here is the essence of the words above in modern English,

“People try to get away from it all – to the country, to the beach, to the mountains. You always wish that you could too. Which is idiotic: you can get away from it anytime you like. By going within…”

Might you develop new habits that allow more time ‘to go within’?
