How to Bring Inner Peace Into Your Life.
“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.”
—Saint Francis de Sales
“Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
Have you read my last blog about Acceptance? If not just go through that and you will love it.
Our daily life must be hectic or very busy at times. Then you feel or wish for some inner peace to come to you. But it can’t happen in a fraction of seconds, it takes time to heal and make a difference.
At times, Peace can challenge us to discover ourselves and perhaps, allow us to surrender to our circumstances. When you are over/finish against the grain and going with the flow, life might just get a little sweeter. But on those days when peace seems so out of reach, center yourself with meditation. And not just meditation is the cure, here are a lot more things for you to follow.
1. Find a relaxation technique that works for you.
Well, my relaxation technique is belly breathing and working out to release tensions and recharge during the day. Exercise helps me to exhale out many anxieties.
What most works for you? Music, Long walks, or yoga, or going for a swim? Find out and do that.
2. Don’t make mountains out of molehills.
Well, it’s a phrase, and it means don’t dramatize anything unnecessarily. That can create a lot of unnecessary stress.
When facing something that looks like a mountain ask yourself questions like:
- Will this matter in the next 5 years?
- Does someone on the planet have it worse than me right now?
These questions help you to sort out and realize that things may not be that bad and realize that you can handle them.
3. Unclutter your world, unclutter your mind.
Just take 5 minutes to eliminate your desk or the room you’re in. A simplified, uncluttered, and ordered space around you brings clarity and order to the mind.
So don’t stop there. Simplify, organize, and declutter your home and life too to live in a more relaxing environment. Sometimes, change in a way leads to positive space and inner peace.
Or you can set a minimalist workspace. No distraction, no overloaded files. This brings peace and makes it easier to focus during working hours.
4. Be 10 minutes early.
Being on time, rather be 10 minutes early. It’s a small habit but it has transformed much of my travel time during the year from very stressful times to periods of relaxation and recharging. There will be no hurry and you will be relaxed as soon as you reach there. You can arrange yourself according to the environment. You can sit at the destination and enjoy other things. So many benefits to being early.
5. Accept and let go.
Most importantly, You should accept things and let go of them.
Now is now. But if something negative from the past or someone said something bad, something someone did and is still on your mind then accept and let that feeling and thought in instead of trying to push it away.
When you accept that then it loses control over you. And while the truth may still be there in your head the negative feelings become a lot less powerful.
At last, spit out that thing. And direct your focus to the present moment and something better instead.
