4 Quick Ways to
Increase Peace in Your Life
In order to reduce
stress it is sometimes helpful to increase the amount of peace you
experience everyday. One of the easiest things you can do starting today
is to begin to experience peaceful events or living things in nature.
Watching a sunrise or a sunset, noticing a flower, watching a bird,
focusing on a beautiful tree are all examples of free ways to begin to
increase your inner peace today. It is good to allow yourself to
experience these things for at least 1 minute while you tune out all
other distractions. Ten or twenty minutes per day is ideal.
Second, get organized.
Having your life in disarray is very stressful. As you clear your
clutter and find places to put things, and get rid of things you don't
need, your physical working and living space becomes more peaceful right
away. If you struggle with clutter or making sense of it all or letting
it go, you might consider hiring a professional organizer to help you
accomplish the task.
Next, you want to
tackle incoming mail and emails. Read it, file it, reply to it, shred
it, delete it, junk it, or something. Don't just let it sit there. In
fact, if you have several piled up from days gone by, make a commitment
to do at least one more plus today's every day. This will increase your
peace by avoiding that nagging memory of needing to respond to something
sometime. Just handle it today.
Fourth, do some
stretching. You may try yoga poses, pilates stretches, or return to the
stretches you were taught to do as a child or teen lengthening the spine
and gently lengthening your limbs. Then move side to side. It's not
about doing it perfectly or pushing yourself. It's about doing what
feels good. If it hurts, stop. Just do what gives you that "Ahhh"
feeling as you stretch.
