Things That Cultivate Peace In Life

It is a stressful world out there, so it is important to find ways to bring peace into your life. Instead of increasing negative energy into your aura. Put that energy into cultivating positive energy. I will list a couple of things that have been helpful for me.

1.Let Go-This is a big one. Learning you cannot control others, or life situations is important for your peace of mind. Getting angry at how others behave won’t help you. Everyone does not think or act the same way, it is how it is. Move on and let go. It serves you no purpose to dwell on it.

2.Listen to calming music-There are plenty of Youtube videos on calming the mind, releasing negative energy, reducing anxiety etc,. The music can help put your mind at ease.

3.Journaling– One of my favorite things to do.It is nice to let your thoughts out. Venting can be therapeutic, but there isn’t always someone there to listen, so letting it out on paper can be helpful. It helps me bring peace to the situation. It also allows me to work through whatever struggles I have.

4.Do a hobby you enjoy-Immersing yourself in something you enjoy, and living in the moment. Allows one to forget the harsh realities of the world, or our struggles. You can just focus on the thing you enjoy. I get this sense when I do plant care, read, or color. I just live in the moment. Not focused on the time at all, or anything else really.

5.Go out in nature– I am sure this is mentioned a lot, but there is a reason for it. It is very refreshing and rejuvenating to be outdoors in nature. I have a sense of peace and energy after a walk outside.

6.Perspective taking- Learning to see things from another person’s perspective can help you live in peace. Your thoughts, ideals, values, or behaviors are different from most others. When you learn to understand others. You let go of judgment and criticism. 

7. Deal with emotions-Allowing your emotions to be, rather than pushing them away, or fighting it can be helpful for your well being. Emotions are part of being human. Accept it for what it is, allow it to be, and it will eventually fade. Adding thoughts and storylines to the narrative will make it worse. You feel lonely, sad, angry, stressed, annoyed etc,. Feel it, let it be, move on. Peace will ensue. 

8.Staying away from SNS– I just recently deleted Twitter. This has been wonderful for my peace of mind. I no longer have much need for validation, or have information overload. It allows me to just focus on myself and my thoughts.

You won’t be at peace 100 percent of the time, because that is unrealistic. These things help me be more at peace in general, not all the time. As long as you’re more at peace. That is what matters. Trying to bring more peace into your life is what matters. Just remember there will always be disturbances, it is how one grows and learns. It is part of our life journey.
