13 Ways to Achieve Peace of Mind
Peace of Mind – A mental state of calmness or tranquillity, a freedom from worry and anxiety. (dictionary meaning)
If you had to describe in your life now, what does peace of mind look like, feel like, what words would you use to describe that feeling and that way of being? We strive for many things in this world but peace of mind seem to evade most of us. Is it linked to contentment or in today’s fast-paced world, does contentment mean being lazy or lacking in ambition? Peace of mind does have an element of contentment, self-acceptance, charity of spirit, trusting the flow of life as it is, being in tune or working on getting there with Divine.
Some believe if you are not racing through life on a daily basis, you are not being productive. Yet more and more it is discovered that meditation in the morning, breathing techniques, letting go and surrendering, all play important parts in bringing us to a place of peace and eventual peace of mind. When we slow down, we listen more, we learn more, we make less mistakes, we are gentle with ourselves and our short-comings, we take time to reflect and evaluate, we appreciate and value our time more.
Learn to live your life fully and consciously, seeking peace of mind and life will begin to make more sense and have true meaning and purpose. Let peace of mind be the guiding force in your home – from conflict resolution, to listening to each other, bringing more harmony through prayer and music, trusting yourself more, setting realistic goals in the short-term and medium term, aiming to have a more loving outlook on life and towards others. Let go of the need to control everything and everyone around you. Allow peace to be at the centre of your workplaces, your spiritual havens and your communities.
