9 Calming Strategies That Help You Find Inner Peace


Finding inner peace in the modern world is a significant challenge. Everything about contemporary society feels like an obstacle to experiencing peace of mind. But there are ways to find and maintain inner peace. Inner peace is a choice, and many of your habits determine how much ease you experience in your daily life.


Experience inner peace and enjoy life on a deeper, more satisfying level:


1. Focus your attention on those things you can control. Why worry about those things you can’t control? It sours your mood and makes you less capable.


Ask yourself, “Is this something I can control? Will worrying be beneficial in any way?”


2. Spend time in nature. The original humans didn’t live in a 3-bedroom ranch and eat microwave popcorn. Take a long walk in the park or spend a weekend camping. You’ll feel dramatically different compared to sitting in a building 24 hours every day. There’s something peaceful about spending time among the birds and the trees.


3. Be true to yourself. Few things are more problematic than living a life you weren’t meant to live. It continuously gnaws away at you. Live a life that’s congruent with your values.


  • It’s too easy to allow society to dictate your choices. You don’t have to spend your life on a career that’s impressive to others. You don’t have to chase after a fancy house. Make your own decisions about what’s most important to you.


4. Eat nutritiously. You might not realize how bad you feel because you’re so used to it. Try eating the way you know you should for just a week. Note the change in how you think.


  • Now try eating some junk food and see what happens to your mood and your overall sense of well-being. You’ll feel like you’ve been run over by a truck.
