Inner Peace sounds big and often we believe that to achieve that state we need our lives to be perfect, do something or earn that state of peace.
We tend to believe that when we achieve something, do something or be something we will find peace and happiness.
The truth is we are always evolving and will never stop evolving. Infact right now, in this moment on your journey you can find peace. It comes from within and is an inner practice.
By finding your inner peace you are reflecting peace outside to the world and as we know these days our world can need an extra dose of peace.
Let me share with you 5 ways to find inner peace that helped me on my journey:
1. Make peace with your past
Whatever happened on your journey, make peace with it. That doesn’t mean it’s all ok and you agree with everything that happened. At the same time make a cut and do not allow your past to determine who you are today or even will become in the future. Forgive yourself and forgive others.
2. ME Time
Commit to time with yourself. Meditate, do whatever makes you feel connected to yourself like art, listening to music. This time is so important and trust me you can only be happy with someone else when you can be happy with yourself first.
The only way to love and to to be loved as the hightest version of you is to be truly authentic and be who you are.
That’s a powerful statement and its absolutely true. You are unique and you are amazing like that. Share your uniqueness with the world.
4. Connect with nature
Spend time in nature, everyday. Look around, appreciate nature and soak up the energy. Its like a recharge for your soul and your being. Breathe the good and fresh air.
Move in which ever way if you can. Your body loves to move. It allows stored emotions in the body to get out of your system and keeps your body strong and flexible.
Run to work, choose to take the stairs, go for a walk with your friends – sometimes it is the small things.
