In Peace, Not Pieces

Living peacefully means you live harmoniously with yourself and those around you. It may not be the easiest (most often), but learning a few tricks and hacks to living a more peaceful life is worth it! What brings peace to you may not be what brings peace to others around you – what defines peaceful living for you may not be the same for someone else. Peace, according to your beliefs and lifestyle, would be way different from someone else’s – however, there are a few things that never go wrong (for anyone) when it comes to finding peace and living a peaceful life.

Only you are responsible for how you live and perceive life – your journey is yours to travel. Hence, make sure you do it in style and make a few heads turn!

To begin with, finding peace has a lot to do with understanding yourself – your fears, insecurities, anger issues and intolerance, lack of social skills, and so on. So calm your storms from within to find peace and ease on the outside.

A few things you must not overlook include:

  • Being non-violent.
  • Being more understanding and observant.
  • Living life and enjoying the little things.
  • Being tolerant and adjusting.
  • Catering to the needs of others around you.

Respect all living beings – here, we are not just talking about humans. Animals, plants, insects, everything, and anything deserve respect. So respect and love everything around you, smile more, and acknowledge and accept the beauty within everything to find yourself immersed in serenity.

Another essential factor you must consider is loving others and not trying to control them. A lot of people need to correct this. They seek to control what others do or say rather than seeking to love and adore them for who they are. The more you try to control the actions, words, and emotions of others, the more you are trying to destroy your peace and the peace of others around you.

Being tolerant is another perfect life hack you must cultivate. Rather than jumping to negative conclusions and losing your calm, be tolerant. In changing your perspective of others, you change and alter their self-perspective! For instance, if you start calling someone witty, intelligent, strong, and wise rather than anything negative, their perception of themselves changes. Likewise, you create a world full of positive-minded, happy people!

Other ways to find peace within are forgiving and forgetting negativity, not dwelling in the past and moving on with life, being honest and transparent with yourself and others around you, not seeking any revenge, positive affirmations, cheering yourself and others around you and making sure life is just as beautiful as nature – we must not pollute it and keep it fresh and excellent for it to not lose its charm!

Tips to help live a relaxed life

  1. Practice Mindfulness: 
    Mindfulness is the art of being present in the moment and being aware of your thoughts and feelings without judgment. Practicing mindfulness can help you reduce stress, improve focus and concentration, and bring more peace.
  2. Simplify Your Life: 
    Too many material possessions and commitments can create stress and chaos. Simplify your life by decluttering your space, saying no to unnecessary burdens, and focusing on what matters to you.
  3. Exercise Regularly: 
    Regular exercise benefits not only your physical health but also your mental health. Exercise releases endorphins, improving your mood and reducing stress and anxiety.
  4. Cultivate Positive Relationships: 
    Positive relationships with friends, family and loved ones can bring joy and peace. Make time for the people who matter to you, and cultivate positive relationships by being kind, compassionate, and understanding.
  5. Practice Forgiveness: 
    Holding grudges and harbouring anger can harm your mental health. Practice forgiveness by letting go of past hurts and resentments and focusing on the present.
  6. Disconnect From Technology: 
    Constantly checking your phone or social media can create stress and disrupt your peace. Take breaks from technology and spend time in nature or engage in other activities that bring you joy.
  7. Practice Gratitude: 
    Gratitude is being thankful for what you have in your life. Focusing on what you have rather than your lack can bring more peace and contentment.

Remember, living a peaceful life is a journey, not a destination. It takes time and effort to cultivate habits and practices that promote peace, but the rewards are well worth it.
