How to get peace of mind

How to get peace of mind

Is finding peace of mind a challenge for you?  Do you look for ways to get peace of mind? 

When we talk about peace of mind, many people wonder how to achieve it.  Life is hard, work is stressful, children need nurture, are among the excuses that people come up with for not having inner peace and peace of mind. 

As I discussed in my article, “peace of mind” that when your thoughts are calm and when you are emotionally and mentally free from worry and anxiety, then you are in a state of calmness and tranquility. 

Usually our minds are jumping from place to place to the point where we forget how to live in the present, focus on our vision, and enjoy the time we spend with our family.  What you have to realize that we don’t have control over the events in life, but we do have control over our attitude towards what happens. 

As I mentioned in my book “How to have peace of mind” that when we learn to calm our minds, then we are able to focus.  When we focus, we are able to choose what to focus on. 

How to get peace of mind

If your goal is to learn how to get peace of mind, so you can overcome worry and anxiety in your life, then follow the four steps below:

1.  Read something inspiring

I personally have made it a habit to read for about 20 minutes before I go to sleep something that helps to bring me inner peace and calm my thoughts.  Read something about personal development, mental power, nurturing your relationships.  In short, read anything that helps to bring you peace of mind, satisfaction, and helps you in one of the life domains.

2.  Meditate and visualize

Every day, take a few minutes in the morning and before you go to sleep to breathe deeply and clear your mind from all the chatter that you have in your mind.

After you take a few minutes to meditate and calm your thoughts, then start visualizing your vision in life.  When you visualize what you want to accomplish and feel the joy, worry and stress get reduced and you will start having peace of mind.

3.  Create harmony with life

When you create harmony with everything in life, you learn to not let events and circumstances annoy or upset you.  You realize that you are the one who have control over your thoughts which will have a big impact on your mood.  When you choose to create harmony with things that usually put you in a negative state of mind, you are creating unity and this unity brings you inner peace and peace of mind.

4.  Learn to forget

Every day, you encounter many issues that if you are going to get upset over, you will never experience peace of mind.  Therefore, it is a good idea to learn to forget about small and trivial issues that you encounter in your daily life.  Your inner peace and tranquility is more important. 

Of course, there are many other ways that will help you to find peace of mind, but if you follow the four steps above, then you will be on the way to calming your thoughts. 

Have you ever wondered why some people are happy and have peace of mind while others keep worrying?  Why do some people’s life filled with worry while others filled with happiness and peace of mind?  My e-book How to overcome worry answers those questions and teaches you the scientific ways to control and overcome worry and have peace of mind.

    Hey Dia!

    I find that reading something inspirational, or having a conversation with someone who has that inspirational gift can lift me right out of a rut. Inspiration sticks with me forever, while motivation give me an immediate, but not long-lasting jolt.

    I’ve never gotten so skilled to be able to forget things. In fact, when I say to myself: “I need to forget about [blank]” then it ends of staying on my mind. But I know what you mean here…more so focus on what brings peace of mind…and doing that does help, couple with time.

    Great tips as always Dia.
    Thank you!

      Hi JK,

      Yep reading something inspirational or talking to someone who inspires you does help greatly my friend. In regards to forget things, the key is to not let small issues annoy you or cause you stress. For instance, if something doesn’t go your way, instead of getting annoyed and stressed, just move on. It is not worth it to stress over small events as your happiness and inner peace is more important 😉 Thanks JK for the great comment

  2. All good ways to find peace of mind Dia.

    If I may add more: Writing – writing brings me peace of mind because it allows me to center my thoughts and express my heart!

  3. You make some great points Dia. For me, the most important shift that people can make is to realize that they have a choice. We can choose to feel good (have peace of mind) by deliberately thinking thoughts that make us feel good, or we can let our thoughts wander into dark places and make us feel bad. We aren’t at the mercy of our thoughts, we can control them. It just takes a little practice. Posts like this will go a long way towards spreading that message. Nice one!

      Hi Melody,

      Exactly, we all have a choice and it is up to us to choose uplifting and inspiring thoughts instead of negative ones. Awareness of this issues is crucial… Thanks Melody

    Hey Dia,
    Peace of mind and peace in life must be a top priority for all of us. Finding time in our day to just stop and clear our minds is essential for us.

    • Dia says:

      Hi Justin,

      Yep exactly, we all need to take a few minutes a day to think peaceful thoughts and do what is necessary to create peace of mind. This is mandatory if we want to leave a prosperous life. Thanks Justin

    Dia,

    Hi nice post! I been working to develop mindfulness and be present in the moment to have greater peace of mind. It has been an amazing process to fully experience each moment. Whether just going for a walk, eating, or formally meditating, I have greater peace of mind when practicing mindfulness.

    hello dia
    how are you?
    thanks for sharing these tips on how to get peace of mind. i can relate with reading something inspiring because that triggers my imagination and causes me to visualize on things that concern me.
    learning to forget is also very crucial because it reduces the level of anxiety, worries, promotes sound sleep…
    take care and enjoy the rest of the day

      Hi Ayo,

      Yep reading something inspiring is very crucial. It helps us focus on what we want or at least something that put us in a better feeling. Also, forgetting and letting go is very helpful as we focus on peaceful thoughts instead of distressful ones. Thanks Ayo

    I like this article because I already do 3 of your 4 suggestions. It’s nice sometimes to see your practices affirmed in someone else’s thinking. I usually have several books going at the same time. At least one of these is always something uplifting and inspiring. I have established a regular meditation practice and I often use visualization to help me with certain things. And I have gotten better at forgetting things that are past. I was not as sure what you meant by #3. I’m hoping you might expand on that a bit. Thanks for a great article.

      Hi Galen,

      Creating harmony with life and eveything in general is the “best” way in my opinion to reduce doubt and fear. For example, let me give you a personal example, a few months ago, I got a new job. Now, I had a pre-planned vacation from last year for this summer for 3 weeks. When I got into my new job, most of my colleagues said there is no way they will give you 3 weeks vacation and you are just started. I said to them I will get it. I started making “peace” with the idea of going on my vacation and I started making “peace” with the idea that my manager will approve it. I started to visualize my manager approving the vacation. Instead of filling my head with fearful and doubtful thoughts, I filled it with peaceful and harmonious thoughts with what I want to achieve. To make a long story short, my vacation got approved. 😉 When we create harmony and peace with what we want to achieve, doubt and fear become less, our faith increases, and our vision manifests. :) Thanks Galen, hope this made it clearer.

      • Galen Pearl says:

        Thank you for the explanation and the excellent example. This is much clearer now. I need to give this some more thought. I don’t think I do this as routinely as the other steps, and I can see how helpful this would be if I would develop this habit. I am going to think of some situations in which I can apply this principle and try it out! Thanks again.

    Sometimes we make things so difficult and we find ourselves not being able to see the trees for the forest. Well…it’s time to see the tree and feel the wind going between them! I saw a turtle the other day and automatically thought of “need to slow things down”. Such peace this creature must have.

    Dia,

    Thanks for these tips as I really needed them. Life just gets crazy sometimes and we all need to be able to find peace in the middle of the chaos. I like to listen to music to clear my head and also writing allows me my creative outlet that gives me peace. Thanks for this on time post.

  11. Stuart says:

    Hey Dia, great to be back here again after a while, love the consistent flow of wisdom!

    As I said to Alex, writing really gets me going and stirs my soul. Once I’ve finished, it feels like I’ve achieved something worth achieving, and this gives me peace of mind.

    I also adopt a Zen approach to life, treating everything in balance, and not getting hung up on the outcome. This also works wonders :-)

  12. I really like this Dia. Number 1 is one of mine. I like to read something inspirational. It can do wonders. and number 4 “Learn to Forget” We have to learn to put the past behind us and move forward. The past is to learn by and the present is to enjoy and help us grown to move forward.

    thanks Dia for keeping us on the right track. We all need reminded once in a while.
    Blessing,
    Debbie

    Hi Dia,
    I have found that consciously making visualization a part of my daily “to-do’s” truly works out very well for me, with a peace of mind. I just do a very simple 10 minute creative visualization session and visualize already having achieved all my goals once a day, usually during afternoon time. Blessings.

  14. rob white says:

    All great tips Dia. It is empowering to become aware that the mind is nothing other than ‘thought-waves’ that surround our beingness, but we always have the choice to hover above those waves (like if you are in a helicopter, hovering above the ocean).

  15. Hey Dia,

    Meditation and visualization are what work well for me. Lately I’ve been doing what you said in a previous post about going to bed and waking up thinking happy thoughts.

    Happiness is a choice, all of our moods and attitudes are a choice. That’s what’s been helping me maintain a peace of mind these days.

    Slow deep breaths really work/help! Thanks for this!

  16. This is a good reminder for me.

    A reminder to keep reading those things which are inspiring to me. I get stuck, often, in reading a lot of non-fiction; which isn’t always the most inspiring. It’s great for knowledge – but not necessarily something that brings joy/inspiration. Reading a good book like “To Kill A Mockingbird” is really something that brings that inspiration into my life.

    I’ve also found that I’m lacking in the time I dedicate to meditating/praying each day. I need to up-the-anty in this area. When I do, I’m always more centered, calm and joyful.

  17. Hey Dia,

    Thanks for another inspiring article! It’s been a while since I have been around the community, but this really was a great read. I believe in forgiving and forgeting. Like if you make a problem or do something stupid you need to forgive yourself and forget about it. There will be another day for you to take steps in the right direction, and that’s a big reason why you shouldn’t stess yourself out. We all have to find our ways of bringing peace of mind into our lives. It takes time, but with practice and creating harmony!

    How has having peace of mind help you out lately Dia?

    God bless,

  18. For the past few months I do Yoga to get peace of mind. It works perfectly! I will just sit and relax and then I close my eyes and try to think about nothing. Feel the breath and you will get the peace of mind.
