5 WAYS TO HAVE PEACE OF MIND written by Ina Marie Ledesma of Golden Haven Iloilo
Are you always anxious? Can’t stop worrying even about small things? Is everything stressing you out?
All of these may lead to anxiety, and we don’t want ourselves to suffer it. Don’t worry! We have a solution to your problem. Here are some things to do in each of your daily moods.
5 WAYS TO HAVE PEACE OF MIND
If you want to have peace of mind, try these simple ways:
- GO FOR A WALK AND ENJOY NATURE
Wake up early in the morning and have time for yourself. Choose a place where you can unwind. A place where you can feel the fresh air while walking in the beautiful scenery of nature. Listening to the birds singing and feeling the breeze of the air that touches your face while facing the sun.
Have a deep breath for a few minutes as it is the easiest way to calm yourself. Now, inhale positivity and exhale all the negativities that runs in your mind and body. It will help you relax your mind before the day starts and prepare yourself for all the challenges that may come ahead.
- LISTEN TO MUSIC
Create a different playlist based on your mood or the time of the day. For example, a morning playlist which is composed of happy or upbeat music that will wake your soul up and fill your mind and body with positive and good vibes. Second is the afternoon playlist, composed of inspirational or motivational songs that will help you continue with life’s challenges. Lastly, the Goodnight playlist which is either composed of relaxing, peaceful, or prayer songs that will calm your mind and body before you sleep. So these sample playlists will help you set your mood for the day and give you a good peaceful sleep at night.
- LET GO OF THE THINGS THAT YOU CAN’T CONTROL
Know yourself. It will help you control your reactions in every situation that will not go on your own way. Just because you already planned to have an out-of-town birthday and it didn’t go through because of sudden lockdown due to pandemic, you got upset and burst your anger out in front of your family. So what happened next after that drama? Nothing. You just ruined your own birthday.
Instead of wasting your special day with anger, why not think of another way to make the situation lighter and happier? In this world, we can’t control everything that is happening. Instead of focusing on your problems, choose to see the brighter picture. Make the best of the situation and just move on.
- LOVE YOURSELF AND DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHERS ARE THINKING
Love yourself and learn to be proud of everything that you are doing, even the mistakes you make. Learning to love yourself first will bring more joy and peace to yourself than trying to love someone else. Stop hating your own self for all the mistakes you made, for even mistakes could mean that you are trying. Accepting who you are and not allowing others to judge you, is one way of loving yourself. Don’t base yourself on what other people think of you. First, they are not you. Second, you are unique in your own way. Third, you are living your own life so do what makes you happy. In this life, it’s all about happiness as long as you are not stepping on anyone. Choose to love yourself, so you can love others freely without thinking of what other people may say.
- PREPARE FOR THE INEVITABLE
It’s not bad to think about the future. Reality will always face us. So it’s better to be prepared as early as now, for us to have that Peace of Mind. Instead of worrying about what may happen today or tomorrow, why not give yourself something that yourself will thank you later. In this pandemic, we should be smart enough in using our money. If we have extra money, why not invest it in a piece of a lot that will give you peace of mind.
Memorial lot is the best investment that we can have for us to be prepared for the inevitable. We don’t want untimely death, right? But preparing for it will give you and your family the Peace of Mind that every person wants.
There are a lot of important things in life. But there is one thing that people consider as the most significant. We cannot enjoy life and just be happy if we don’t have the so-called “Peace of Mind”. Yes, it’s not all about money or material things. It’s all about good mental health. And that’s what we want to impart to you, especially to the young generation.
Nowadays, some young adults who are experiencing big or small problems, easily give up and say “I hope I can be a kid again, a kid full of innocence that can’t even be distinguished what problem is.” This reaction is to those people who don’t have peace of mind. Let’s stop torturing our minds with the things that we can’t control, instead accepts life’s uncertainties and make the best out of them. Be grateful in everything you have, may it be small or big. Stop comparing yourself to others, just be true to yourself and accept everything about you. Focus on the ways that can help you build your inner peace.
