How To Live A More Peaceful Life

Updated on March 19, 2015

Peacefulness may sometimes be hard to achieve when you have a busy life with an overcrowded schedule or there are people in your life who do not allow you to feel peaceful. Here are a few tips to help you get started living a more peaceful life.

Slow Down

If you have a hurried life, take time to slow down, even if it is just a few minutes a day. If you tend to be disorganized, organize your belongings so that you know where everything is instead of fumbling around the house frustrated because you can't find anything. If you have a lot of clutter in a room that you frequently use, clean it out and keep it organized. This way you will know where you have placed things and it will prevent you from becoming a madman/woman when you can't find them. I've seen people ruin their morning because they were so upset over looking for keys, an umbrella, paperwork, etc. If everything is placed in organized spots, then it will be much easier to find these items and you can avoid an angry search.

View And Listen To The Sounds Of Nature

You could buy a CD or download nature sounds from the internet, like the sound of a waterfall or birds chirping. Watching nature scenes on a YouTube channel can be a peaceful experience. Look out your window or go to a park and appreciate the nature that is out there. Take the time to stop and look at the trees, grass, flowers, squirrels and birds. Make yourself one with nature and you will feel more peaceful and calm.

Peaceful Music

Listen to peaceful music to get yourself into a relaxed state. Music can have the ability to transform your mood and calm your mind by distracting it. Once you are relaxed, visualize peaceful things, like a beautiful sunset, a sandy beach or a beautiful mountain scene. Visualize things that you would like to have in your life, including peace. See yourself peacefully swaying on a hammock, enjoying a summer breeze. Make sure that the things you visualize are positive and promote good feelings. Add some peace to your life by listening to songs that are soothing and calming.

Calm Your Anger

I know that sometimes there are people or things in life that can make us really angry. After you feel the anger, let it go. Do not dwell on it and let it ruin your life. If your anger seems to be getting the best of you or it is out of control, consider taking anger management classes. Once you get control of your anger, you will allow yourself to bring more peacefulness into your life. Wouldn't you rather live a life of peacefulness over a life filled with anger and possible regrets? Speak to a mental health therapist if you would like to vent and talk about your anger or frustrations. A therapist may suggest ways for you to channel your anger and release it.

Make Peace With People

Learn to practice patience and understanding when it comes to dealing with people. Instead of losing control and letting someone else get you upset, try to understand why that person is getting you upset. Maybe they lacked love and care as a child and they need attention, so they act up and it makes you angry. Whatever the reason may be, learn to practice more patience with difficult people because you shouldn't let anyone make you someone who you do not want to be.

If you are yelling, cursing and screaming back and forth with someone you are not going to be able to hear their point and they won't hear yours. Practice peacefulness as much as possible and be calm and in control. Try to apologize to someone if you did them wrong and learn to forgive those who have done wrong to you. This way you can learn to let it go, move on and become more at peace with yourself and others.

Cut Down On Excessive Worrying

It is normal to worry sometimes, but if you excessively worry you will never be at peace with yourself and it will be harder to live a peaceful life. Excessive worry can rob you of your time and energy when you could be focusing on more positive things. Most of the things that we worry about may not even end up happening anyway. Give yourself a break from all of the worrying. If something unfortunate does happen, then you may be able to handle it better if you practice to become a more peaceful person because it will give you a better peace of mind. One way to start, is by saying more positive affirmations. Here are some affirmations you can say to yourself to help with excessive worrying.

•"No matter what happens, I will be okay."
•"I can handle this."
•"I am allowing myself to become a more peaceful person."
•"Today, I will stop worrying and let life take its course."
•"I want to live a more peaceful life, I am letting go of excessive worrying."
•"I am at peace with myself."
•"Freeing myself from excessive worry will help me to be a more peaceful, happy person."
