Peace is a constant feeling that we all yearn for and constantly need reminders on how to sustain it. It might seem so simple, yet we often take for granted how quickly the chaos of life can disturb our ability to just remember to breathe.
Let’s always reminds ourselves of just a few sources to obtain inner peace on a regular:
Relish your alone time – I don’t know about you, but unlike many others, I relish my time in solitude, when I get the chance. Everyone, no matter how busy or chaotic your life may be needs a moment or two to themselves. Just peace and quiet to gather your thoughts and recharge your mind that is usually going at a mile a minute. With the daily stresses of everyday life, it’s easy to get derailed if patience gets the best of us, so giving ourselves that time to rest and recharge is critical to our mental and physical well-being. We are like an automobile – we need fuel/electricity to keep going
Go for a walk – There is nothing better than taking a nice walk on a beautiful, sunny day to just soak in the simplicity and beauty of nature’s surroundings. Park yourself on a nearby park bench and observe the serenity of your environment. Taking in the fresh air can be just what you need to put your mind at ease.
Keep moving – Yes, we’ve heard this a million times and we will hear it again – because it’s just that important. Be active whenever you can, in whatever form. Working out will keep those endorphins going and in turn help keep you focus and your mind sharp.
Get your beauty sleep – Again, we know this but it’s amazing how often we deprive ourselves of this. Adequate rest is paramount to sustaining your peace, strengthening your mind and overall well-being. If you have the intention of going to bed early enough to warrant a reasonable amount of sleep, then do it. Don’t find silly reasons to waste time and then inadvertently end up staying up too late, again. Put that phone away. Instagram will be there in the morning. Turn off Netflix. Give yourself the opportunity to relax your mind. And when you wake up in the morning, try not reaching for your phone immediately. (I know, it’s hard). Instead give yourself a chance to actually get up, re-sharped your mind to tackle the day’s challenges, drink some water, take a few deep breaths, move around and soak in the morning, before immersing yourself in the regular noise of “mobilegeddon”.
On that note, I wish you all a lovely, peaceful day.
