True peace in today’s world must emerge from within and through what we do. So, here we are making a list of the top ten imple actions you can regularly take to feel more at peace, harmony, and well-being:
- Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to.
Be prepared to turn down the offer to join in on the drama, especially when you’re with people who thrive on chaos.
- Stop trying to control everything.
Your internal control freak is likely hindering your ability to feel at ease and form healthy relationships with others.
- Focus on your breath.
Stop periodically throughout the day to breathe deeply. Utilize relaxation techniques like “square breathing” to manage your tension. For example, take a four-count breath in, hold it for four counts, then let it out and hold it again for four counts. Follow this pattern four times.
- Get organized and purge old items.
A cluttered environment frequently produces a cluttered spirit. So spend time cleansing everything not used in a year, and invest in processes that will keep your space organized.
- Stop yourself from being judgmental.
Check your motives whenever you comment on someone else’s life. Judgment produces and encourages negative energy.
- Say thank you often.
Each day should begin and end with an attitude of thankfulness. Look for chances to show appreciation in your regular activities and relationships.
- Smile more.
Even if you have to do a fake smile, do it. Smiling and laughing have numerous positive psychological effects. Observe your facial expression when engaging in neutral activities like walking and driving.
- Don’t worry about the future.
Even if it may seem challenging, there is a direct link between remaining in the present and leading a more peaceful existence. The future is out of your control. So, by practicing gently, bring your attention back to the present.
- Prioritize yourself.
You are the one person with whom you are promised to spend the rest of your life, 24 hours a day. So, make yourself the priority.
- Be yourself.
Nothing causes more internal battle than attempting to be someone or something we are not. Happiness is to be yourself.
