Peace and Tranquility - A Photo Gallery
Images that Cause me to feel tranquil or peaceful.
What does it mean to feel tranquil? Here is a definition I found of tranquil -To be free from commotion or disturbance; free from anxiety or tension; steady or even. Synonymous with Calm. We all know what it means to feel peaceful. We are also learning more and more how healthy it is for us to feel less stress in life.
Life get so busy sometimes, and the worries of this life can really get to us. So it is one thing to "know" what tranquility or peaceful means, but it is another thing altogether to "feel" those things! Given the choice, I think its fair to say people want calm over chaos in life. That is true of me anyway, how about you?
Photos of Things or Places that Make me feel Peaceful
I have numbered 9 different photos in this article and they all have some image or feel to them that seems peaceful or tranquil, to me. If you see a smaller image, and want to see it larger, simply click on that image.
You will notice several garden photos. I cannot deny it, I am a super huge fan of gardens of all kinds. I just absolutely love them. To me, gardens just exude peace and tranquility. Even the couple of formal gardens I share here bring so much beauty to the senses when there or even viewing the photos sometimes.
Gardens seem to bring a sort of refreshment to the soul. Perhaps that is just me, but I find them a great way to unwind, or "get away" for a time during a busy period in my life. Its a healthy "addiction" I think, to find a place where there are gardens that you can walk around in. Taking the beauty of nature in, while getting fresh air and some vitamin D from the sunshine. It doesn't get much better than that, well except maybe for a hammock!
Many of the photos contain water as well. I can't quite tell you what a body of water does for me, be it large or small. I can try however. It brings me a deep joy and calm. Water is so "alive" and peaceful at the same time. Sure, at times it can be intense and scary. I enjoy the Pacific ocean as well, and that is not a "calm water", though the same feelings come. I just love it, there is really no other way to say it. So naturally, there are images here of water and even some man made waterfalls, which show more movement.
As much as I love flowers, I don't showcase many in this article. Many flowers give off more of an energy to me, than a peaceful tranquil feel. Though many of the feelings tend to overlap. I show some simple white, yet beautiful flowers here. They are so peaceful looking, nothing flashy. Just simple and beautiful.
Trees are amazing, and I think they are wonderful. They are almost up there with bodies of water, but maybe not quite! Trees are so strong, and give so much to us as human beings. I think of the story of the giving tree. That sums up how special trees can be. In these images, some are strong and beautiful, some are small and decorative. I love them all, as do birds and so many different kinds of wildlife.
* I hope you enjoyed a little tour of what makes me feel tranquil and peaceful in life. This is really just the tip of the iceberg, as there are so many other things I could have included here. When life gets a little bit busy and crazy feeling, I can come here and look at my tranquil spots even while at home. Thank you for stopping by. If you had a favorite picture or one to comment on, I would love to hear from you below. Wishing you much peace and tranquility in your journeys!
