As 2020 continues to throw its fair share of curveballs at us, having peace of mind can be quite the challenge. And while we may not be able to control or change certain situations, inner peace can help us manage our response to the world around us. This makes finding it all the more important.
To help, here are 5 tips to help you maximise how much peace you experience in your day-to-day life.
Look after yourself
As we wade through unchartered waters, it is essential that you take care of yourself mentally, physically and spiritually. While a balanced diet and regular exercise are a given, you should also try to remain true to yourself and do what makes you happy. Avoid chasing the things society tells you to do and start living in the moment.

Spend time with others
Spending time with your family and friends can help shift your focus and allow you to feel less anxious. Even if it is a socially distanced affair, bonding over an activity you all enjoy will help you reconnect and have fun.
Spend time alone
Having a trusting support system around you where you can share your concerns can help you manage your worries. But spending time on your own can also help you find peace and work wonders on your mental wellbeing. So why not set aside 5 minutes of your day for a quick meditation session? Or you could indulge in a rejuvenating self-care pamper evening at home – the choice is yours!
Remember to stop and breathe
Focused breathing is proven to help manage stress and anxiety, as well as lowering heart rate and improving your lung function. By inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth, (counting from 1 to 5 for each), you will feel an instant wave of calmness and inner peace.
Enjoy the great outdoors
Nature is naturally peaceful, and it does a great job of transferring that peace onto us. An easy way to find calmness is by going on a nature walk and embracing the beauty around you. From listening to chirping birds to breathing in the fresh air, nature can heighten your senses and bring you peace of mind (and it’s a great source of exercise!).
The most important way of finding inner peace is by being true to yourself. This will allow you to control your mind and emotions, help you to eliminate your fears and anxieties, and pay more attention to the things that make you happy. By following these 5 steps, you will be well on your way to inner peace of mind.
