How To Keep Your Peace
Our world today is currently not in the best of states, from the global covid- 19 pandemic, more wars, racism, crime, etc and today is probably the most challenging times in history with this global crisis. Keeping your peace can be a challenge, however, if I have been able to then so can you…
1. Limit How Much News You Watch
There is so much bad news at the moment so not watching the news will do your soul very good.
2. Stop Comparing Yourself to Family & Friends
Comparison is the thief of joy, live life according to your own expectations and not others. Don’t waste your time worrying about whether other people approve of your choices.
3. Be Grateful for What You Have
No need to wait for big achievements to feel good, start with celebrating the small things, eating your favorite snack or enjoy the good weather.
4. Be Open to Love
When love is done right it can bring you so much joy. It helps you see the world in a different light.
5. Keep a Distance from Toxic People
The people you surround yourself with affect the way you think, feel, and behave. Engaging with people who are constantly negative and look at the glass half empty can take a toll on your well-being.
6. Forgiveness: Do Not Hold Grudges
You may think holding onto a grudge somehow punishes someone else. But, in reality, clinging to grudges only reduces your life. Forgive and move on.
7. Live in the Moment
Instead of worrying about the past or panicking about the future, really enjoy the NOW. It’s all we have this moment in time.
8. Do What You Love
The more you do of what you love daily, you are likely to be in high spirits.
9. You Need To Accept Yourself For Exactly Who You Are
Flaws and all no one is perfect, so stop expecting perfection from yourself.
