Queen Elizabeth II urges contemplation, prayer and time for reflection during 2014

December 26, 2013

We all need to get the balance right between action and reflection. With so many distractions, it is easy to forget to pause and take stock. Be it through contemplation, prayer, or even keeping a diary, many have found the practice of quiet personal reflection surprisingly rewarding….

Reflection can take many forms.

In the year ahead, I hope you will have time to pause for moments of quiet reflection.
