    How do you create and preserve peace in your everyday life?

    Share how you find quiet time in a busy life, time to reflect or just be free of demands.

    I feel if the mind is at peace then we could take in all the jargon of the universe and not get the least affected by it.

    I rarely find time to myself but, I TRY to avoid my mind from racing before time and thus, TRY to be at peace and which  helps me keep a smiling face on my face.
    Note:-everything is trying but, i guess awareness is the key to the above huh wink
    Good luck to you!!

    Being a stay at home mom (SAHM) does not leave me a great deal of this "quiet time in a busy life, time to reflect or just be free of demands." but it is a key part of being a SAHM to maintain sanity.

    It is suggested when you have an infant and you feel overwhelmed at any moment, even when they are screaming/crying, that it is okay to step outside for a breather. That's how crucial it is to create and preserve peace, that it's "allowed" to abandon your duties for a minute in order to come back productive. I don't take a single moment for granted. I enjoy doing dishes more than could be understood because I like zoning out and staring out the window and tuning out.

    I guess to answer your question more clearly, I create and preserve peace in my everyday life by accepting that I deserve it. I don't look for a window of time to find that peace but I demand myself to take the time. If you don't recognize that you owe it yourself, you will convince yourself you don't have time, you'll get overwhelmed and that's it, you're frustrated and distracted and disappointed.

    When you have 10 minutes to start dinner, make those phone calls you've been putting off, etc just don't. Sit outside and enjoy some air for 10 minutes instead!!  It's okay!

    well, despite of inevitable bad events that may happen in my everyday living i will look at these events as a challenge so i wont be always preoccupied and always have a peace of mind. Being optimistic towards unwanted things  s the remedy to have a peaceful everyday life

    By focusing my energy and thoughts towards what's need to be done and learning to accept those that I can't control.  Oftentimes, we either think regretfully of the past, or worry about our future.  But if you only learn to live now, be in the moment, you can achieve a more productive and peaceful life. smile

    Take a moment out of everyday to just reflect in silence and bring yourself to a calm state of mind, basically meditate.

    I have a fairly peaceful life. I have a conscious goal of keeping it simple and one of my best tools for keeping it simple and peaceful is the word "no." I even have to use it on myself when I find myself generating multiple goals or projects for myself. I remind myself to simplify and simply let some things (and sometimes people who are crazymakers) go.
