How To Create Your Own Peace Of Mind

Peace of Mind is a mental state in which mental and emotional calmness prevail. It is a state where your mind is not stirred up by anxieties and worries. The mental activity is phased down so that quietness and calmness can be experienced. We all have experienced this fantastic mental state, for instance during a vacation or while being deeply absorbed by an amazing book. During this state, we were not troubled by our worries and thoughts. Instead, our mind was calm—we had found inner peace.


Let go of the past:The past haunts every one of us from time to time. Thinking about everything that happened and the mistakes you’ve made in the past over and over again will cause great turmoil within your mind. For this very reason, it is so important not to dwell on the past. You cannot change the past. However, you always have the chance to change your situation in this present moment.

Take a walk:Go out in nature and take a walk through your nearest park. The sensation of walking through nature will not only ground you, but it will also help you to calm your mind down. Taking a walk is highly effective, but most people sadly seem to have forgotten its benefits.

Don’t worry about what others are thinking:Another source for mental restlessness can be the fear of other people’s judgment. It might even haunt us so much that we do things we’d rather not do, just to please someone else. However, it is nearly impossible to be everybody’s darling. In fact, you cannot change the way people think about you. So why bothering about it? The ability to be not affected by other people’s opinion will greatly help you to find peace of mind in daily life.

Eliminate certain media distractions:Media consumption can cause great turbulence within our mind. These media distractions range from television, radio, newspapers and magazines to video games and music plus social media sites like facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp.

Accept what cannot be changed:This saves a lot of time, energy and worries. Every day, you face numerous inconveniences, irritations and situations that are beyond your control. If you can change them, great, but if you can’t change them, get neutral to needing them to be different.

Don’t hold grudges:It is enlightened self interest to learn to move on and forgive. Nurturing ill feelings and grievances hurts you in many ways, including causing poor sleep.

Don’t take things personally:If someone hurts you it is not always about you.

Train your mind:You can train your mind to reject worries and anxieties, refuse to think negative thoughts, and eliminate constant (usually negative) mind chatter.
