Don’t Compare Yourself to Others

Don’t Compare Yourself to Others

One of the best methods for how to find inner peace with yourself is to avoid comparison at all costs.

I am serious. Pitting yourself against that newly engaged friend with the huge rock or that pal who got a promotion and a new Porsche is a recipe for stomach aches, rage, and binge eating. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Say “No”

Honestly, saying “no” is one of the hardest things for me to do. As a teacher, I want to help everyone and end up saying “yes” to all sorts of events and tasks that I’m not interested in. It’s okay to tell people “no.”

Saying “no” isn’t rude. It’s establishing boundaries.

Focus on the Present Moment – Not the Past or Future

All we have is the present. In many ways, dwelling on the past and worrying about the future drain your positive energy.

Try not to blame yourself for your past decisions. You did your best with the knowledge you had at that moment.

Instead try to learn from the past instead and apply those positive lessons into your daily life. On a similar note, don’t worry so much about the future. We always envision the “worst case” scenarios in our heads, and they never come true.

Let Go of All the Things You Can’t Control

Let Go of All the Things You Can’t Control

Fretting about the things you can’t control is not only a waste of time, but it’s dangerous if your happiness depends on people and events outside your sphere of influence.

When you rely on other people’s reactions to achieve happiness, you’ll never ever ever feel happy, cause their responses are not under your control.

It’s stressful and impossible to control each and every event in your life. So let it all go. You’ll find peace with yourself faster.

Spend Quality Time in Nature

Spend Quality Time in Nature

Doesn’t matter if you live in the city or country either. Get outside.

Take a walk or drive to the nearest park. Stroll on the trails. Breathe in fresh air. You’ll feel a million times better.

Set Aside 10 Minutes of “Quiet” Time Every Day

I don’t care if you’re single or married. Childless or a parent. A social butterfly or an introvert. You need to have a few minutes a day carved out for only you and you alone. Like saying “no,” your family or career won’t explode in the span of twenty minutes, I promise.

Put on the Calm App or relaxing music on Spotify, closes your eyes, focus your breathing, and relax. Think about your goals and wishes. Imagine yourself achieving everything you’ve ever set out to do. This is your time.

Furthermore, actively make your living space a place to find peace within yourself. Keep clutter to a minimum (I have to do this…) and turn off your phone or at least put it out of reach. No scrolling on facebook allowed.

Read Your Favorite Books

Read Your Favorite Books

I don’t consider an entire day spent inside my apartment reading a good book “wasted time,” and neither should you. So grab a book on a topic that interests you and dig in! Don’t worry about studying high literature either.

Want to snuggle up with Harry Potter even though you’ve read the books fifteen million times? Then go for it and don’t feel the slightest bit guilty!
