Anxiety, depression, overthinking, and other negative feelings and emotions are strongly present in today's society, which makes the idea of finding inner peace kind of hard to achieve. Most of us are busy with our schedules and personal concerns that we barely have the time to take care of ourselves let alone being able to achieve inner peace, which needs time and dedication, and that's really hard considering our busy lifestyle, however, it's not like it's impossible to achieve.

We'll discuss in this article the meaning of inner peace and how to attain it.

What's inner peace?

Inner peace or also known as peace of mind is basically to be able to reach the state of physical, psychological or spiritual calmness despite the potential presence of stressors.

Being able to find inner peace is the equivalent of being happy or reaching a level of serenity with both the body and mind no matter how difficult or chaotic things can get.

The key of finding inner peace is not a problem-free life or world (which is nearly impossible). To be able to reach that inner peace you'll have to learn how to manage all those conflicts and challenges that life gives us in a calm and serene way, which is obviously not that easy, it takes time and consistency to teach yourself the art of inner peace.

How to find inner peace?

As mentioned previously finding inner peace is not that easy. But yet, there're lots of ways that you can try to achieve that peace. Not all of them will work for you, it depends on the person.

Reaching peace of mind cannot be achieved in one day.

You can try the ways that are presented on the following list and choose the ones that you feel they'll most likely help you get that inner peace that you want.

1. Love Yourself

Personally, I'd say that this is the most important one. I mean, how can you even find inner peace and happiness when you don't like or feel comfortable about yourself? That just doesn't make any sense.

Self-love is a very important ingredient in this inner peace recipe. To love yourself basically means to take care of your mental and physical health by trying to avoid all the possible elements that may hurt you in both ways.

Eat healthy and exercise regularly to keep your body and mind in a continuous healthy state.

Self-care is one way to inner peace, in other words, when you feel good and love yourself the way you are, then, you're basically closing all the doors in front of all the negative energy and thoughts.

Keeping just the positive vibes, feeling relaxed, that's literally inner peace as you found the peace between you and yourself.

2. Be respectful (to others and to yourself)

Communicating with others while using offensive and a disrespectful kind of language just keeps you away from finding your inner peace.

Try to speak to others by making use of proper and respectful language, think twice before saying something that may hurt, offend, or make people angry.

Train yourself into remaining calm even in a discussion with someone. I'm aware that's quite hard, and that we're humans with emotions and reactions, but for the sake of your mental health you need to avoid any disrespectful word or action towards others, as that will only bring to you negativeness and regret afterwards.

3. Find inner peace through art

Yes, you can find peace through art. One thing for sure is that we all consume art in different ways such as listening to music, going to the movie theater, social media content, etc. But here, people are just 'consuming' what other artists create.

So, in that case we're just art-consumers, which is good too, it helps to relax and disconnect from the real world while seeing and listening to amazing creations.

However, what about instead of just consuming, go and create as well? You can also be an art creator.

That will help you a lot with the process of finding inner peace. Free your mind from any negative thoughts and just enjoy the process of creating.

There're lots of ways; you can draw, paint, write, play instruments, pottery, etc. Concentrate and enjoy the moment, while you don't even notice the time passing by.

Instead of wasting your energy on overthinking and stressing yourself, you can try putting all that energy on art creation. That will help you find peace at those moments and free yourself from any kind of negative emotions while focusing and enjoying the moment.

4. Learn to accept

Accepting the fact that a perfect life doesn't exist, and that you'll face problems and have to learn how to deal with them are an essential key when it comes to find inner peace.

You need to be happy and accept what you already have, don't be greedy. Practicing acceptance and contentment will actually give you peace of mind. In the other hand, not being able to appreciate what you have, always wanting more, and feeling jealous of others will just lead you to an uncomfortable life style, which will keep you away from reaching that inner peace that you always wanted.

The desire of wealth and high positions do not excite a person with inner peace.

5. Meditate

I suppose you've heard of this one, when we hear people talk about calmness and inner peace, meditating is always present. Well, it has many proven benefits for our physical, emotional, and mental health.

The thing is that our minds are always busy, we're always thinking about work, studies, future, appearance, meals, etc. Basically our minds do not rest, and if we keep going like that it'll be harder to reach that inner peace.

That's why meditation is essential, it can give our minds a break. Just there, taking a moment of relaxation, with an empty mind, free yourself from everything for a moment.

Meditation is what we can do for ourselves to achieve some sense of peace in our mind and soul. You'll get a break from all those thoughts running across your mind, even if it's for a short moment.

We all want to feel good with ourselves, feel peaceful and calm, free from the negative thoughts that keep running through our minds. But it's not that easy, to reach inner peace you'll need to follow some rules, and change some things. You'll have to be consistent and firm with your behaviors, keep an eye on yourself until you get the hang of it, and then those new changes would be just an essential part of your life.
