Inner Peace Made Easier in 10 Steps
Finding inner peace in our world is a challenge. Everything around us seems to be hindering any attempt to experience peace of mind and feeling calm. But, still, there are ways to find that long lost inner peace and maintain it. Like most things in our life, inner peace is a choice, and many of our acquired habits determine how much peace we experience in our daily life.
Let’s take a look at these 10 Steps to enjoy our lives on a deeper level and experience inner peace:
Focus on what you can control.Why worry about things you can’t control? It makes you less capable, drains your energy and disturbs your mood.
Ask yourself: “Is this something I can control? How is worrying helping me in any way?”
Spend some time in nature.Take a long walk in a park or a sports club, or spend a weekend camping. You’ll feel magnificently different compared to sitting in a building 24 hours every day. There’s something truly calming about spending time among the birds and the trees.
Be true to you.Almost nothing is more alarming than living a life you weren’t meant to live. It just simply consumes you. Live a life that’s congruent with your values, a life that honors your true self.
It’s too easy to allow society dictate your choices, and conform. You don’t have to spend your life on a career you don’t like and that’s impressive to others. You don’t have to chase after a fancy life. Make your decisions about what’s most important to you.
Eat healthy.You might not realize how bad you feel because you are so used to it. Try eating the way you know is healthy for just a week and note the changes in your feelings.
Now try eating some junk food and see what happens to your mood and your overall sense of well-being. You’ll feel like you’ve been hit by truck.
Exercise daily.Exercise feels good, and you feel good about yourself for doing it. When it is a habit, it regulates your breathing, and helps you feel better and calmer.
Do something nice for others.A great way to take your focus off of yourself. You become more aware that others are struggling, too. When you are kind, you’ll feel a sense of pride and satisfaction. When you help someone else, you will feel great for being a reason for good for others.
Be assertive, decisive, positive and assured.Be forward with your needs and desires. You will more likely get what you want, and you’ll also feel more in control of your life. Being passive results in having less control on your life, which runs counter to inner peace. Be bold without being aggressive.
Meditate.It is calming. It helps you to see life and its challenges more accurately. Things are often better than they seem. Meditation can prevent your mind from exaggerating a bad situation. I found the easiest approach is to focus on your breath, whenever your mind wanders and your thoughts come up, return your focus fully on your breath, breathing in, and breathing out.
Quit trying to change others.It’s hard enough to change yourself. How will you ever manage to change someone else? Can you succeed at changing the weather? Right, it’s the same.
Learn to trust your inner voice. “It is okay, you just don’t vividly see how okay it is now, it is all good. As you learn and grow, all will work out. Trust yourself, and you will turn it all around magically.” Tell yourself this every day till you build trust, trust YOU, you deserve it!
It’s essential to take care of your own “you” emotionally, mentally and physically. Eat healthy, exercise, and be true to you. Be assertive and take control of your own life. Nothing in the world can replace inner peace. Avoid conformity and chasing after things that society and others has determined to be essential. Decide for yourself and live the life you were meant to live.
May you truly: Live Your Magnificence!
