Inner Peace – 15 Tips For You to Try
With things being as they are in the world, feeling calm and achieving inner peace can be tough to achieve.
But inner peace is essential for your well-being. That feeling when you are on holiday, in a beautiful place, and can really let go of day-to-day worries.
But can this be achieved in the here and now at home? Even with the worries of the world, you may feel upon your shoulders? The answer is YES. Get some easy tips to achieve inner peace below!
How to Achieve Inner Peace
(1) Set your intention to achieve inner peace. Recognise that achieving inner peace is a choice. The first step is to have consciousness when things disturb your inner peace and recognise that you have options regarding how to react. Also, make a conscious decision that you are “going for” inner peace. Simply doing this will allow your mind to analyse moments when you are pleased and peaceful and what needs to be sorted out to increase these good feelings. This, in turn, will make you feel more determined that you are on a good path.
(2) Did you know the stress hormone Cortisol is at a high early in the morning after you awaken? Taking time in the morning to drink your morning tea or coffee, do nothing for 10 minutes or to potter about without rushing can really help your stress levels for the rest of the day, and create a good basis of inner peace to help your entire day. During this early downtime, “feeding your brain” with information actually can cause your stress levels to rise unknowingly too. Try and have this peaceful time before you switch on your devices, or think about moving or working
(3) Set limits for yourself. Tired out? Running around with too much to do? Then you are not on a path to achieving inner peace, and one of the first things to do is consider how to get more quality time and feel laid-back and peaceful every day. What unimportant things might you be doing that is helping this happen? Are you letting yourself get interrupted when doing a task? Do you let things build-up, so that tasks become huge? Are you checking social media multiple times a day? Could you re-organise your schedule so that you have a better balance?
(4) Don’t worry unnecessarily. There are so many things in our everyday lives beyond our control, especially as most of us are now restricted in our movements and how we want to live our daily lives. But for each thing that starts to make you feel sad, uncomfortable or just plain worried, ask yourself if this particular thing is beyond your control or not. If it’s something in the news or the outside world, then it probably is out of your control. Realise that by allowing yourself to be affected by these things, you are causing yourself extra stress. Telling yourself it’s just how this thing is and accepting it, will greatly up your personal power, leading to less stress and more inner peace.
(5) Avoid your stress-catalysts. Watching large amounts of depressing news, watching shocking things or following unhappy (or even absent) people on social media, spending lots of time with negative people. If you do these things, it is quite clear that your inner peace will be disturbed at some stage or another. Turn to the positive, switch off the wifi or the telly and turn to pastimes that make you feel happy and satisfied. Spend time with positive people in person or online or by phone.
(6) Try a body clean-out! Are you eating as you should? Or are you eating naughtily to try and make yourself feel better? Then for a few days, go out of your way to eat as you know you should. Pick ingredients you really enjoy but which are healthy and good for you. Even if you have to prepare meals for others, do this for them as usual, but you stick to your thing with what you eat. You will feel good about yourself, stronger and more confident.
(7) Knowing what is right and what is wrong for you. What is truly important for you? Being polite and helpful? Being honest and open? Not talking about people behind their back? Then practice what you preach and expect to be treated as you treat others. No pretence is needed on the path to inner peace!
(8) Say what you think. Being submissive and docile is not the same as having inner peace, in fact, it is proven that being bold, firmly stating your needs and politely saying when something doesn’t please you, will get you much further in life your personal happiness. You are more likely to get what you want and feel more in control of your life, which greatly contributes to happiness and inner peace. No more kid gloves or pussy-footing around!
(9) Having said the above in number 8, “think before you speak” is also important on your inner peace path. When someone asks us or tells us something important to them, we react without thinking it through. Sometimes we either don’t say what we really think because we haven’t had time to think about it or say what we think, and it comes out bluntly, wrongly or in a snappy or domineering manner. Simply taking the time to think and then respond is quite acceptable, even if there is a pause in the conversation. Or even to say ” one minute please I am just thinking about this,” before giving a response. You will find you feel calmer, like in control of what you are saying, which will make you feel more peaceful within.
(10) You can be who you want to be. If you have any social pressure or self-imposed pressure about your lifestyle, then realise at any time you can change this. There is no obligation for you to have a beautiful house or a brand-new car, a high-flying career or anything else. If you want to dress up as a fairy and dye your hair pink, who or what is to stop you? Take the pressure off yourself, and you will feel a whole lot better. Stand up and tell people about the new you and your new priorities.
(11) Time in nature and spending quality time with animals is always rewarding. If you can get out and about in natural surroundings, then make this a habit. If you have pets, spend quality time with them and try to do something new. In reality, if you do not have these opportunities, watching programmes about beautiful places and interesting animals is also good as a reminder that there are millions of lovely things on our earth, again contributing to feelings of inner peace.
(12) Go tidy because a less cluttered environment gives a less cluttered, happier and more peaceful mind. Throw out old things you really don’t need. Become a bit more minimalist. This will give you space to think, space to replan and well… just nice space!
(13) Think positively. In any situation, try to concentrate on a positive outcome. This takes practice, but you will find the more positively you can think, the stronger you will feel. Remember also that you do not always know what is going on in other people’s lives and try to be forgiving. Perhaps a rude or tense person has a hard time at home or has their own set of problems!
(14) Recognise stress. When stress is affecting you, try and work out why you are feeling this. Because the body puts into action a thought, then a feeling and then a physical bodily reaction, it is quite likely that you are actually feeling a build-up of stressful catalysts and this last one was just the icing on the cake! Go back and try and ascertain what this build-up was. Was there perhaps one catalyst that you could avoid in future, to reduce your stress levels? Could you be dealing with this particular last catalyst head-on in a firm yet calm manner if you take time to think things through?
(15) You cannot change other people, but you can influence them to change themselves positively. Remember, how you react can also affect what happens next! The balance needed is not to be the underdog or an unpleasant, snappy, domineering or sneering person. Biting back in confrontational situations gets you nowhere either. Remember you have a choice of saying “Hang on a minute I need to think about this” before responding and giving a calm and intelligent reply. This will often surprise the other person. We can also always find a good point to say about someone, even if they are currently annoying us to the hilt! Complimenting people on their strong points before making your point can go a long way. This proper and upright method of dealing with people and difficult situations makes you feel great and contributes in many ways to achieving inner peace.
A Bonus Tip!
Just breathe! Breathing deep, slow breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth a few times per day can work wonders. For a moment, close your eyes, breathe and focus on a beautiful image or a memory in vivid colour. Your stress levels will drop, and you will be calmer.
