Having inner peace does not mean that life is perfect, we all know that life is never perfect, but having inner peace makes life's crazy moments seem bearable. I have been working on being my authentic happy self for several years now and to me one of the most important parts on this journey is having inner peace when the world seems to have gone mad or just on an average day.
This is the definition of inner peace... inner peace refers to a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress. Being "at peace" is considered by many to be healthy and the opposite of being stressed or anxious. ...
So when you have inner peace...life will all of a sudden seem less stressful...how wonderful does that sound. So here are some things you can do...that work for me to find inner peace in every situation. These are what work for me but we are all different but worth giving them a try.
1. Take in a few deep breathes....breathe in peace and breathe out love. This is for me the easiest way to calm myself and remind me to find peace in any instance. Sometimes it is a little harder than others but it always works.
2. Try to meditate for even a few minutes every day.
3. When I am driving in my car my favorite thing to do is turn off the music and focus on my positive self talk. I have a list that I go over and over...I am strong...I am happy...I am healthy...My life is perfect just the way it is....Money comes to me easily and frequently..I feel awesome...My body is strong....ok you get the idea these are just a few of mine. You can make your own list or use some of mine. Plus I have a long list if you need any ideas find me on Facebook and message me I will be glad to share more or help you make your own list.
This is a good start...if you start to add even one of these to your life it will be a good start on your journey to "inner peace" and I don't think it is something that is ever always there...I think it is something that we will always need to work on but will make life so much easier~
Be well..be happy..be blessed~
