Peace is a vital ingredient for healthy living. Just like healthy food, one cannot think well, love well or sleep well unless you dine well. Once you find inner peace your body feels awesomely comfortable and elegant just like pure water.
Like everything else, one authentic question remains. How would you find calmness? It’s nothing new, you may find many blogs, books, writers spend heap of time analyzing breadth-wise and lengthwise on topic of inner peace.
I didn’t write for some time now. Today I feel relax and calm to write something about finding peace.
1. Enjoy the ride not the destination
You often deemed some situations as “wonderful” in life; like weddings, new babies, promotions, visiting friends, and vacations make you feel good. It’s so easy to feel happy and content when these wonderful events occur in our lives. Most people want to live moments continually , but very few realize peace cannot be achieved in a destination, peace can only achieved the way you drive yourself to your destination. Think different even amid “terrible” situations like getting fired, having cancer or a serious illness, death, grief, financial strain, violent crimes and car accidents to get backup and find your calm and serene .
“Don’t define yourself with situation, but look for improvements on good stuff you’re been doing. You may not achieve at once, but you will someday . You just need work on your goodness of everything; start enjoying an ice cream amid hectic work schedule today.
2.Slow down and listen to Grasshoppers.
When your vehicle traveling too fast you only see path. You may miss surroundings, landscapes, smiling people and whats going around you. This happens to all of us. We all have driven fast. We cry for the missed chances, missing holiday packages.
“You may forget people around you. You would be amazed if you see people living around you and how they moving with life. Take time to look at them. Start appreciating , pay deliberate attention to make changes, even tiniest ones. Start reading a book , buy an ice cream for a kid. Giving time to do little things in life and phase down stress.
3.Keep regrets away / breed new ideas
People worry too much for early mistakes. most probably they cannot change outcome of it but keep tormenting. I felt bad for mistake I did few years back, even though I couldn’t control it hurts you for long time and could not make mind to walk on.
“You can’t always choose what happens to you, but you can always choose how you feel about it and what you do about it. You don’t have to be defined by the things you did or didn’t do in the past. We don’t need to let ourselves to control by regret. Maybe you could have done better or maybe not. Either way, it’s merely history now.
4.Find right Unit of Measure
People have measurements to weight love, attention, pride, wealth and success on their own. But most us compare our life excessive with someone else. stop doing that. third parties have no idea of your journey. This is one of the barest mistakes we did to ruin our inner peace. Always find your own unit of measure to calculate your life, don’t use other peoples measurements for your life. Be creative and start looking at new ways to find peace and happiness.
5. Do meditate
Meditation is not only for Buddhist seeking enlightenment. It’s for anyone who seeks peace and calmness inside. The basic goal of meditation is to focus and giving attention to your mind. Once you find awareness and inner calm within yourself it may come as a surprise to learn that you can meditate anywhere and at any time, allowing yourself to access a sense of tranquility and peace no matter what’s going on around you.
