Maintaining a sense of perfect calmness and peacefulness at all times is probably no more than a great idea for most people, rather than a state of mind or being. In fact, with most people living a busy life that is characterized by a full work week, commuting, being involved in a serious relationship or marriage, and caring for family, the idea of inner peace may even sound a bit laughable. Take a moment to reflect: When was the last time you felt truly peaceful? And when was the last time that you experienced an emotion on the opposite side of the spectrum, such as fear, anger, or frustration? Chances are that the latter three are more familiar to you than the former.
But that doesn’t mean that peace isn’t something that you cannot create within yourself. It takes work, but if you are willing to put in the time and the effort, inner peace can provide long-term benefits.
Focus on Acceptance of Things Beyond Your Control
One of the greatest barriers to inner peace are feelings of frustration, and expended energy, over things in life that we cannot change. Whether it is a circumstance in your own life that is out of your control or the actions of another person, if you want to develop a greater sense of inner peace, you need to accept the things beyond your control. By understanding that you cannot control certain things in life and being okay with that, you will immediately have a weight lifted from your shoulders.
Be Quiet Within Yourself
Things can be chaotic, both on the inside and the outside. Ask yourself when the last time you experienced quiet was, and not just external silence. Indeed, even if you’re lying in bed in a quiet room, are you using your phone? Stressing about an upcoming project? Replaying a conversation you had with your boss in your head? If so, try to create moments of silence within yourself, where you empty your mind of thoughts and focus on the moment.
Learn to Breathe
One of the greatest techniques when trying to create inner peace is learning to use your breath as a tool to mitigate powerful negative feelings. Taking deep breaths, focusing on your breath, and even unique breathing techniques like the Wim Hof method can improve your sense of wellbeing, and provide you with a way of managing emotions or stressful situations.
