10 ways to Inner Calm

Thursday, 24 July 2014 0 comments

Stress can start to feel so normal that we hardly notice it anymore. But once you start practicing these methods to achieve inner peace, you’ll probably see just how chronically stressed you used to be. Here are 10 ways to calm.

1. Listen to music.

That makes you feel relaxed and happy. Whatever your genre, music is soul food!

2. Run it off.

 Exercise, especially outdoors, is a way to promote peace of mind. Not only will you get the endorphins flowing but when you’re focused on a sport, you can’t be immersed in your worries. It doesn’t matter what kind of exercise you do. Just do it.

3. Breathe!

Anytime you bring your attention to your breath, your mind can’t think about all of your worries. Try this: count each breath and try to get to 10 without allowing your mind to wander, even for a second. This is much more difficult than you might imagine!

4. Play!

Play with pets, kids and/or friends. Be silly. Frolic. Goof off. Be a kid. Romp. Inject a playful attitude into boring chores and let your inner child come out and play.

5. Be in nature.

The soothing sounds of birds or flowing water will do wonders for your soul. Traffic noise and other manmade sounds can be so incredibly jarring (like your alarm clock) and a little time in nature will soothe you.

6. Smile and laugh!

Find the humor in life, and both smiling and laughter are proven mood boosters.

7. Don’t take yourself or life too seriously.

Be more flexible and be open to the fact that your way is not THE way. Become interested in alternative points of view and different approaches.

8. Focus on the best-case outcome.

Worrying is just a habit. You can just as easily turn your imagination to what might go right instead of what might go wrong. Practice this daily and reprogram your mind to think in terms of best-case outcomes.

9. Let it go.

It’s not easy to cut ties or cut losses, but why go down with the ship? Think of it this way: you’re just turning the page and moving on to a new chapter.

10. Be grateful.

This may be the single most important element of inner peace. Focus on everything in your life that you’re grateful for. Deliberately look for the blessings and lessons.
