We are immersed in too many words. The proliferation of text makes it hard to hear yourself. Writers should embrace silent, wordless activities. Some good ones: walking, cooking, cleaning, yard work, listening to music (no lyrics).

THIS! Definitely love a good walk, or sitting staring mindlessly on the sun setting above the river. Also just read some writings of Yehudi Menuhin, and he too underlines the necessity of silence. Couldn't find that text online, but he mentions it in this interview https://www.mjq.net/interviews/menuhin.htm

Walking is the best way to come up with ideas. I can always trust that even if I don't have an idea, I can take a long walk and will come up with something. I don't think it's a coincidence that, in English, poetry units are called "feet." Walking is poetry.
