“The definition of peace of mind is the absence of anxiety or mental stress.” It should be conducive to emotional and physical wellbeing. It can also give us increased energy, improved memory and may help us adapt quicker in difficult situations.
It doesn’t matter what I deal with, I always try to have peace of mind. It’s something I strive for daily, regardless of what I deal with, or how my day works out.
I’m not sure many of us may actively choose to live with chaos, if we could actively choose to live with calm instead. The problem is that achieving peace of mind is not so easy to achieve.
Having peace of mind allows us to concentrate better, stay more focused, meditate better and bring about a deeper understanding of our lives and the lives of other people. Peace of mind also helps us become better individuals as we learn to be more patient and tolerant with others.
To achieve all of this mentally, we may have to be prepared to change, not only our lifestyle, but our mental attitude too. Over the years we may build a wall of unhappy feelings, resentment and anger towards others that if left can begin to eat into the very core of our being, as we continue to struggle.
Building a wall only adds to how we already feel about ourselves, about friends and family. Start by taking out as much negativity as you can. Learn to meditate and recite affirmations. Down size on stress and stressful situations and put yourself first.
We need to think of ourselves and be at one with ourselves, before we can be at one with anyone else, because only then will we have peace of mind.
