You deserve peace of mind.
We are living in a stress filled, hustle and bustle chaotic time. Most of us out there definitely have stressors, some more than others. Some are “handling” them better or worse than others.
But in my opinion, not having peace of mind is one the biggest stressors. I mean constantly worrying about something, it’s a horrible feeling. I’ve been there.
Let me ask you what would it take for you to have peace of mind?
Peace of mind is the ultimate mental relaxation. Here are some suggestions to help you get there.
Ask, if you don’t know. Ask questions if you don’t know. It’s very stressful holding a question in that you truly need to know to make a decision or move forward, or have closure or if it’s something you can’t find the answer. Just ask it. Even if it’s something you may not want to hear.
Go as far as you can go. This is to tell yourself that you have done all that you know to do. That’s a weight off your mind. When you get to that point release it. Knowing you have done all you can do will help bring closure or resolution.
Trust your intuition. Trust yourself. We have ALL been there including me. Is there a little something in your gut or your mind that says nope, don’t do it? Or, yes, I think it will work. Go with your decision.
Walk in truth. Stay in peace. I know you have heard of this. For better or for worse the truth will set you free. The truth may hurt, the truth may be embarrassing, or ugly, or not. But the truth is the truth. It doesn’t have to be twisted or manipulated. It stands on its own whatever it is. When you can get to that point, this is peace.
Going back up to the other thought, ask questions. Once you know the truth, then you know.
We are all here on our individual journey, mistakes are bound to be made, flops, successes, poor judgments, great times poor times, all that. But again, it is what it is. It’s the truth. So walk in it.
Step away to think about it. When something happens to you. Especially if it’s devastating or impactful in your life, it can be very jarring. You may not be able to think clearly. So take some time to process and to think.
Run your race (Don’t compare)
- This can be a tough one. You are living your life and then you look to the right and see this person doing so well, they have it all and you want that.
- Or you look to the left and see another person doing something else that you admire.
- How about this – do your thing, run your race, let comparison go, just release that. What’s for you will be for you.
Help without expectations. What I mean by this is when you go to help someone or give someone money or a give a gift, you have to release that. It will experience stress if you expect someone to give right back after offering them your help. So help because you want to, but not with the expectation of receiving something in return
Let it go. What you can’t change, the past. What doesn’t serve you.
Forgive. Can you forgive yourself for something you did or didn’t do. Can you forgive yourself for what someone else has did or said something to you. Of course, only you can answer this. The answer may be yes or no. If you can’t, then ask yourself, what benefit is it serving you by holding on to it? Again only you can answer this. Have you heard of the saying that you forgive for you, not for them. It’s for your peace of mind.
I’m definitely not saying to forgive someone and then invite them to your next party, that will be only up to you. I am saying to release it.
Try not to fall into the guilt trap
- This can be a tough one for some folks.
- Just don’t be made to feel guilty for something you don’t want to do
- Think of simple – Most of these things discussed is giving up control. Right of others actions or situations that you cannot change. When I mean simple I mean don’t try to fix or finagle or contort things. Accept something for what it is.
– Work toward a reserve fund
– Get affairs in order
– Prepare for emergencies
– Once you prepare for things it can
We never know what a day will bring. We do not know who is going to enter our lives or what others are going to do to us. The only thing we can do is work on creating our own solace and calm.
Work what you can do to give you peace of mind.
In my mind, having unconditional self-love, good health, and peace of mind are pillars of relaxation. Take care of yourself, you deserve it. So every single day think about this. When I you to bed tonight, will you be wide awake because of worrying about something you can’t control, or are you working towards peace and restful sleep.
I know that all of the things I just mentioned are not easy, but they are necessary if you want to gain peace of mind and how you will achieve it. Just keep going and claim it.
