08 Dec Finding inner peace amidst chaos
Give yourself the gift of inner peace.
Whatever culture or tradition you come from, universal wisdom says that inner peace and joy come only from looking inward.
These are comforting words when the world around you is in chaos. But finding—and keeping—peace within yourself is not always easy.
The simplest way to start is through meditation. It’s nothing more than creating mental silence and bringing yourself into the present moment. The type of meditation you do doesn’t matter—even a simple mantra is effective.
One you quiet the noise in your mind, you can:
- “See” in between your thoughts and “open your eyes” inside your mind.
- Start understanding why you feel stressed, unhappy, anxious.
- Declutter your thoughts and let go of superficial worries and pain.
Inner peace is about reaching contentment and happiness by reconnecting with yourself. And that’s what will keep you grounded when the world is spinning.
