How to have peace of mind

Updated on October 21, 2012

We often do our best to steer clear from troubles and problems. But most of the time we fail on this endeavor because of some unavoidable things that come across us. Our work spread our time and energy thin. Obstacles and challenges are seemed unending. Responsibilities are limitless. Expectations of other people on us provide immense pressures. Ah, there seemed to be no rest for the weary for almost all of us. But whether we like it or not, we must stand strong and thread through to the intricate and perilous labyrinth of the dog-eat-dog world, in order to earn a living, to sustain our necessities in life and to do other things that are essential to our whole being and existence.

Since we are always busy we often forget the essence of having peace of mind. Although it is easier said than done, taking time to relax and unwind is so important since doing this give us the chance to recover from a hard day work and from the daily hustle and bustle of life.

Bear in mind that too much work is not good for the body since we are also subject to the so-called wear and tear. Our body need to rest in order for it to function well and be in top shape. Stress from using our body and mind to the hilt can reduce our productivity and may cause future health problems.

Here are some tips and pointers to have peace of mind:

  • Reading books especially the ones that interest you the most. This will not only boost your vocabulary and grammar it also helps you accumulate stock knowledge and even aid you to gain new skills.
  • Get away from the city. Find the opportunity to spend some of your time in the countryside to breathe fresh air and be captivated with the scenery there. If you have some money to spare why not book a week-long vacation to a tourist destination near you. This is not only very exciting but it also helps you foster stronger bond to your family.
  • Go out with friends. Good ol’ friends are like wines as they get older they get better. They can give us moments of great laughter and fun. Their advice can also be valuable. You may have a light drinking spree that can be very refreshing, have a meal in a fast food chain or a diner or better perhaps do other things that you and your friends love the most.
  • Play! Why not spend time to amuse yourself with your kids or nephew and nieces. Older people always say that it is “nice to be kid again.” This is true, since kids don’t worry too much and loves having fun. Reminisce the good old days and show what kind of stuff you are made of in dishing out laughter and excitement. Use your creativity!
  • Try yoga, many do this to get away from stress and at the same time make the mind calmer and relax.
  • Indulge in a hobby like having an aquarium. An aquarium will let you have “fish of mind” or should I say fish therapy.
  • Engage in sports. This is not only enjoying but this will also provide you the exercise that you need as you get older. Sports can also provide strong bond to you and with your family, relatives or friends. Also sports helps you value nice attributes like discipline, sportsmanship and teamwork.
  • Listen to your favorite music.
  • Find time to watch your favorite movies or TV shows.
  • Stay away from debt, be frugal and buy only the things you need.
  • Avoid being a surety.
  • Try your best to do your work ahead of time.
  • Be good and stay away from troubles.
  • Have rest or enough sleep when you can.
  • Now if you want to have further peace of mind, you may travel out of the country whenever you can and if you have ample enough budget to do so. Explore and enjoy!
