How You Can Find Peace Of Mind

Aug 17, 2007
Peace of mind is an inner sanctuary, a little bit of calm in an ever busy and loud world, with escalating crime, fear and day-to-day stressors. Having some peace of mind in a crazy world is the only way that many of us can stop ourselves from actually being driven crazy or getting caught up with life, work and an ever-commercialized world and forgetting what we set out to accomplish in the first place.

What Is Peace Of Mind?

Peace of mind is having some time dedicated solely to yourself. It is all about taking the time to connect with the person inside and find some peace and quiet from a world gone mad. Peace of mind is about reflecting on your life and within this quiet reflection time, learning to re-adjust and cope with situations that, at times, get the better of us, before they have the chance to spiral out of control.

Yes, peace of mind is time that you take away from everything going on in your life and all around you to find peace and solitude. It is within the peace and solitude that we find the answers to our questions and solve problems that are manifesting in our lives.

Why Peace Of Mind Is So Important

Peace of mind is so important in your mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Without this careful reflection time, we are putting ourselves in the same type of situation that a swimmer may, if he forgot to come up to the surface for some air. Like the swimmer, we are thrashing away in our daily lives, trying to get somewhere in a sea of complexities.

By taking some precious time out from our efforts or coming up for some air, we get the chance to see our progress or strategize our lives for the better. We can step out of our lives for a while and take a good look at what is going on in our lives and the changes we need to make. Without this time-out to seek peace of mind, we are destined to be swallowed up in everyday living and lose track of what we originally set out to accomplish. Or, worse still, lose track of who we really are.

How To Get Peace Of Mind

Now that we know the importance that peace of mind has in our lives, let's look at how we should go about finding it. To start off, you need to take some time out. Find some place where you won't be disturbed. Take the phone off the hook, turn the computer off, lock all of your doors, throw your pager out of the window, do what ever it takes to get complete peace and quiet.

The next step is to meditate. This doesn't necessarily mean that you must sit under a triangle and say 'hummmm'. Meditation is the act of relaxing. So relax, take deep breaths and clear your mind of all of your daily stress - it can all wait! Once you have relaxed, you will feel a sense of peace coming over you. If you feel problems creeping into your mind or things that have bothered you during the day - push them out, keep that relaxed state of mind.

As you are relaxing you will feel a tingling sensation come over you, just like a warm and fuzzy feeling. This is your 'feel good' endorphins kicking in. At this stage, you will be feeling extremely calm. Sit there relaxing, feeling peaceful and enjoying it until you feel that it is time to finish your peace of mind session. Stay in the same position, allowing your mind to slowly let thoughts begin to creep in. Sit like this, just thinking quietly for a while, before you try to get up and start moving around. When you finally do get moving, you will feel calm, peaceful and ready to face anything.


Peace of mind is important to us, especially in the crazy modern world of today. Just like a swimmer, we need to let our mind come up for air every now and again and find a few moments of tranquility in our lives. By doing this, we are more rational and able to face the things in our lives that need to be tackled head on with gusto.

Never put your mental, physical or spiritual well being last or feel guilty for taking this time out just for yourself. Finding peace of mind is one of the most important things that you can do for your well being. It will benefit not only you, but those around you and those you love, because you will be far calmer and well balanced when dealing with them.
