Inner peace is a state of deliberate psychological calmness even with mental stress factors that might be surrounding you. Relationships can sometimes feel like an obstacle to you when you are trying to have peace of mind.
People feel internally happy when they have inner peace because they have conditioned their mind to only derive joy from within themselves. They come from your relaxation point, what you think works for you and helps you relax.
Ticking the check box beside my list of things to do or my goal list makes me so happy, so whatever works for you is what you should do, but to help you decide and further understand, below is a list of ways that you can find inner peace.
How to find inner peace:
Surround yourself with things that make you happy: happiness is a food that you cannot get tired of eating, so knowing what makes you happy and doing it is a way to find inner peace and fulfillment. If dancing or singing does the magic for you then go ahead with it.
Your environment matters: where you go to and what you feed your eyes with matters. Experiencing nature helps, just taking in fresh air and feeling the atmosphere around you, you would subconsciously be calm and happy. You know how taking a walk down the park or somewhere calm and beautiful makes you feel, makes you have clear thoughts.
Come with terms with yourself, you know what you can do and you know what isn’t meant for you, so, stay away from those things that aren’t meant for you things that you naturally do not see yourself doing. No pretends.
Quit worrying: when things happen take your mind off them, especially if it is something you cannot control. There would be no point depriving yourself of peaceful thoughts when you have no control over what must have happened.
The food you eat matters: whenever you decide to follow up on a diet and actually pull through you feel good and fulfilled because you know you are eating right. So cut down on your food intake and eat right.
Workout: it is good for your physical wellbeing and it makes you feel good about yourself.
Everyone has a life: do not worry yourself thinking about what you would have done different if you were your friend, people have their life to live and their mistake to make. If you worry yourself about your friends you start thinking of ways to change them and that doesn’t always turn out well.
Notice how all the above ways drives down to ‘feelings’ you feeling good about yourself, you feeling happy with whatever you do? It is proof that your inner peace has to do with you and what you want for yourself. You have to make a choice to find your inner peace by doing things that make you happy and unworried.
