Many people have a unique idea of what peace means. Some think it is the absence of war, while others believe that they are at peace when their minds, emotions, and bodies are in harmony.

For me, peace is an inner sense of well-being and composure. I find this by focusing my thoughts on positive things like gratitude, love or anything else that makes me feel my best self. 

Here are some ideas for how you can tune into your inner world:

Take a break from the world.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the chaos around you? Do you feel like there is no room for peace in our society? Well, here’s a thought – we all need to take breaks from the world. It doesn’t matter if it’s just for 5 minutes or an hour. Everyone needs time to decompress and recharge their batteries. 

A break could be as simple as sitting quietly on your couch with a cup of tea or coffee. It could also be as simple as walking outside without listening to music or simply staring at the wall. Whatever activity calms your mind is what matters most!

Take a break from the world. It may appear like an overwhelming effort, but it is possible to escape the noise and demands that we face every day for just the smallest of moments. Sometimes all we need is a small escape from everything around us.

Permit yourself to take care of yourself.

“When did you last take a moment away from your phone?” “How did it make you feel? How do you think it made other people in your life feel?” We ask ourselves when we feel overwhelmed by social media or our minds or emotions. As much as we may love to be plugged into the world around us, sometimes what we need is to unplug. We need to permit ourselves to take care of ourselves.

Finding a moment for ourselves in a world. Permit yourself to take care of YOU!

It’s easy to neglect yourself when you are busy taking care of others, but it is imperative to allow yourself to take time for your own needs. The mind and body are connected; your mental health can affect how you feel physically. 

Sleeping and exercising too little is one way people neglect themselves. There is an unhealthy cycle where they don’t get enough sleep because they are tired. After that, they don’t want to exercise because they don’t have much energy. It’s hard for someone else who hasn’t experienced this cycle firsthand to understand how it feels on the inside–or what would be helpful.

Create an atmosphere that makes you feel peaceful 

Creating an environment that makes you feel relaxed is key to making decisions. Whether it’s your home, the office space you’re in, or even your favourite coffee shop- it’s helpful to be in a place where you can think clearly. It doesn’t matter what type of activities are taking place around you, as long as there is no negative input interfering with your thoughts and emotions. 

Why not try turning off all electronics for 20 minutes? See how many ideas come flooding into your head! Everyone knows it’s hard to take a break sometimes. However, we’re going to share some tips with you on creating an environment for yourself where you can relax and enjoy your time. 

Create an atmosphere that makes you feel peaceful 
  • Find a quiet place away from distractions.
  • Take care of any chores or errands before they pile up.
  • Schedule time each day where nothing else is expected of you. This could be reading, watching TV, drawing etc

Have faith in your intuition and instincts. They’re there for a reason! 

Many people are unaware that they have intuition and instincts because they’re too busy thinking about what to do next. It’s essential to learn how to trust your gut feeling, as it will help you make better decisions in the long run.

It got me checking out what everyone else is doing without actually being present in my own life. And it’s gotten me a while to realize that this has left me feeling emotionally drained and unable to trust my instincts.

We can actually act quickly and effectively in situations that we have faced before due to the vast knowledge that we have built up over time.

Do things that bring you a smile, even if it’s just for one day at a time

Being happy is not something that can be achieved all at once. It’s a moment by moment process, and sometimes it requires taking small steps to take care of ourselves in the most effective way we know-how. In an increasingly divisive world, the importance of finding happiness should be more significant than ever.

The first step in this journey is discovering what makes you happy and then acting on those feelings. I love how in today’s world, there is so much more access to information and resources. I think it’s precious that we take the time to learn from others’ mistakes and successes. It can be easy to get coiled up in our own lives to forget about the outside world.

Do things that bring you a smile

Having said that, it is also vital for us as individuals to create a balance between self-care and caring for others. Each of us has a particular way of coping with stress, sadness, or loneliness.

One day at a time may not seem like an effective strategy when you’re feeling down on yourself. However, if you spend your days doing things that make you happy, one day will eventually turn into two days, which turns into three days.
