Peace is perhaps the simplest yet layered and complex aspect to understand. People often misinterpret peace as one of the most important ‘events’ in their life but they fail to understand it is not an event rather a process that keeps going on.
Peace should be looked at as a small piece that can be found to bring balance in our unbalanced lives. Peace does not only come from big changes. It occurs in between those small moments which can be accessed by everyone. Everyone gets the benefit from small moments of accomplishments
Whatever we do in our day to day life, significantly impacts the way of our living and presence of stress in our life. We can’t stay calm in our overloaded lives and always seek out for approvals from others. But that’s now how we work towards peace. We move towards peace when we choose to keep ourselves in control. Our choice of attitude plays a vital role. If we constantly depend on others, we shall never get peace and always remain in conflict with our inner selves.
Trust yourself. Your instincts. Your capability and ability to perform a certain task and that’s how you step towards achieving peace. When you learn to let go, don’t stick to your pasts, and free yourself from your heavy thoughts, you deliver your best. A positive attitude is easy to keep but hard to maintain. Anyone can manage to act positively in a normal situation, but how you act when the ball is not in your court defines your progress towards mental peace.
Calm and controlled behavior is the first step towards attaining peace. You shouldn’t lose yourself in the over the excitement of joy neither you should deprive yourself when things aren’t in your favor. Try to act balanced. You should know, just like the sad moments, happiness also comes in the temporary form and when you over attach yourself with momentary happiness, you often tend to overlook the actual joy of life.
We should try to find peace in small moments of our daily routine rather than waiting for something big to happen. When we start practicing the act of finding small peacefulness, we become more attentive towards our own selves and our surroundings. It leads our mind and heart and we begin to appreciate the calm in the chaos.
Here’s how you can find small moments of peace in your life and indulge in it.
Notice. Stay attentive and observe what is happening around you. Observe how people are behaving or other events are getting unfolded in front of you. When you will observe you will expand your perspective and act accordingly rather than behaving impulsively.
Focus. Find a center of focus for yourself.
Feel. Don’t bottle up your feelings and emotions. Let it out and feel what is required in that particular moment. Don’t hold it for the future.
Sustain. Hang in there. Hold onto yourself and relax. Slow down your thinking process and take a minute out, deep breath and calm down your mind, heart, and body.
