What is peace of mind? How do you achieve peace of mind in life?

Peace of mind is the absence of worry, stress, and anxiety. When your mind is tranquil and serene, then you are in control of your thoughts and emotions. In short, peace of mind or what some call inner peace is achieved when you are in harmony with everything else in life.

To achieve peace of mind, you have to be able to overcome excessive worry and anxiety from your daily life. The question is how do you overcome anxiety and worry? There are many different ways, but it all start with awareness of how you look at situations in your life.

If you are not aware of what thoughts you tend to have in your mind, then thoughts will end up controlling you like the majority of people. Research shows that over 80% of the average person thoughts are negative, which is why many people don’t experience peace of mind and inner peace at a regular basis.

When you have peace of mind, you are in control of your mental thoughts and emotions. With constant practice, you can achieve peace of mind and tranquility as having inner peace is a skill that can be learned. The more you practice having inner peace, the more you achieve peace of mind.

One of the main reasons that made me study and do an extensive research on how to achieve peace of mind is due to the fact that little and petty things used to upset me and create anxiety and stress in my life.

During my extensive research and study, there are many methods that have helped me have peace of mind, but one of the methods is controlling my attitude to what happens and interpreting situations in a positive way. When I encounter a negative situation, I would shift how I look at it from negative to positive.

I admit, at first it was challenging and was very difficult, but the more I practiced, the easier it got. In other words, it has became a positive habit into my life and it can become one of your positive habits too if you practice.

Benefits of having peace of mind:
Increased happiness
Increased focus
Increased relaxation
Better relationships
Better health
Better control of your emotions
It helps you manage worry, stress and anxiety

Besides the method that I discussed above “controlling your attitude” to what happens, there are many different methods that you can learn and apply to your life to achieve peace of mind like living in the present, facing your fears, meditation, creative visualization, praying among other ways. In the coming articles, I will discuss in detail other various ways to help you achieve peace of mind and inner peace.

Before I end this post, I will leave you with the following quote on peace of mind, “Peacefulness is an inner sense of calm – it comes from becoming still – in order to reflect and meditate on our inner wisdom and receive answers. A peaceful heart is one that is free from worry and trouble. It’s becoming quiet so we can look at things quietly so we can more clearly understand them and thus come up with creative solutions. It is learning to live in the present.”
