Sheila is a kids' author who worked with challenged clients. She loves to share her experience in the mental health field with you!

Perhaps your life is chaotic and you desperately need a reprieve! Of course, I understand. Finding peace within yourself is not as easy as you think, because your mind may be stuck on the tumultuous events of your life. You may have trouble shaking them off, especially if you are having problems at school or ups and downs with a boyfriend or girlfriend.

Except if you focus on yourself, you will find success in discovering a peaceful spot within you. Realize thinking about yourself and your needs is not a selfish act, particularly when you are caught up in taking care of your spouse and family.

1. Take a Day Off

The first thing is to take a day off. Turn yourself off from your muddled environment and get away. Don’t repress or deny your emotions, just set them aside for one day.

Go for a walk in a colorful park or beach and breathe deeply to take in the fresh air. Focus on the present and do not allow your mind to wander. Admire the sky and birds buried in the trees or on the green. Feel the fresh breeze on your face and rhythm of the ocean waves and eliminate distractions. This will set your mind at ease and a revelation to a problem may surface. Take note of it and write your solution on a tablet, so you don’t forget.

If you enjoy shopping, then go buy something for yourself, a book, an outfit or whatever tickles your fancy. Tell yourself you deserve to treat yourself extra special. If you like to be pampered, then a trip to a salon is needed. Invest in a new hairdo or a relaxing massage for instance. And ask your massage therapist to diffuse a lavender essential oil in the air to relax further. This will surely take your mind off of your problems.

2. Work on Creating a Stress-Free Home Environment

Subsequently, work on creating a stress-free home environment. Without treading on anyone's toes set a few household rules that everyone can live with to ease your burden. This will give you more time to take care of you and time to do the things you love. Forgive your loved ones and if you need to apologize do with without any regrets.

3. Laugh Your Cares Away

Next, learn to laugh your cares away. This doesn’t mean to ignore your concerns or make fun of them, but to go easy and take it lightly. If you don’t have time to finish a pressing project, feel comfortable to catch up tomorrow.

Do feel proud of completing a task. Some people live by the motto of caring not too much. They aren’t hitched in the nitty-gritty and don’t focus too much on pressing situations. They’ve learned how to live brightly and laugh effortlessly. You can live your life like this too. It will bring you more peace because you won’t be too focused on other people. You’ll allow others to live their lives without interfering. This may well prevent you from getting involved in hassles.

3a. Make Time to Relax Every Day

The third thing is to learn to relax. You’ll be able to do this if you get sufficient sleep at night. Don’t rely on sleeping medications.

  • Drinking a hot cup of chamomile tea or warm milk before bedtime will help you fall into a peaceful slumber.
  • Take a shower or warm Epsom salt bath to help you relax further.
  • Make sure your bedroom is at a comfortable temperature and your sheets and pillows are clean and comfortable.
  • Use a sleep mask to relax your eyes if there is a flicker of light in your room that annoys you.

During the day, you should also find time to take a snooze for twenty to thirty minutes. This will help you to revitalize so you can complete your daily tasks.

4. Get Regular Walking

Another way to create peace within is to walk around. You should plan to move and sweat a bit because you will never do it naturally. Ten minutes at a time is excellent. You should either exercise first thing in the morning or three hours before bedtime if you feel like it.

If you couple your exercise with a healthy eating plan, you’ll feel more peace within. Because you won’t have an upset stomach bothering you from overeating or from consuming junk food.

5. Pursue a Hobby

Many people find peace within from pursuing a hobby. This gives them something to look forward to doing and sets their creative juices in motion. This can be you... While you are at your hobby, you’ll forget the hassles of the day and lose yourself in your craft. This is a great avenue to find peace within. You’ll feel proud of what you created and you’ll be adding a service or product people can appreciate and use.

There's No Greater Gift to the World than Changing Your Energy.

    Do you do well at walking the "day for yourself" walk?

    It's not so easy, when you have a young family, or grandchildren; a worthwhile goal nonetheless.

    This is something I am struggling with right now. I am in the midst of several life transitions, including aging parents, a spouse getting ready to retire, preparing manuscripts for publication, and children with specific needs. I rarely take time for myself. Your suggestions sound great, and I will be using them!
