4 easy ways to finding your peace of mind

Expected read time: 3 min

The key is to start small and plan goals you can already achieve now, without any major changes to your daily life.

Start with an honest self-assessment and think about what changes you want to make.

Connect with nature

It’s a cliché but spending time in nature really does recharge your batteries. You don't need to start going on long hikes or climbing mountains (although those are highly beneficial to your health), the change can be as simple as taking a walk in the nearest park.

Turn it off

While you're at it, disconnect from your phone, laptop, and smartwatch. What good is it taking a walk, if all you do is stare at your screen? Give your brain a break and get lost in your surroundings while you exercise.

A healthy body = a healthy mind

This should be your mantra. If you only need a short break to recharge and find your peace of mind, then do that.

Don’t chase some imaginary goal or compare yourself to others. We’re all unique and what works for others might not be the best solution for you. Listen to what your body is telling you.

Some benefits of regular exercise in nature:

- Reduced stress levels

- An energy boost

- Improved physical health

- Improved mental health

Whatever activity in nature you do end up doing, make sure you keep doing it. Consistency is key to establishing an overall balance in life.

Stay calm in chaos

Does your life sometimes feel like an intricate balancing act where you need to constantly check on everything so it doesn't fall apart?

If your answer is yes, you might want to consider a different approach. Don't try to control or plan everything, because that's simply not possible in the long run.

Embrace the chaos life brings and find your composure within that if you can.

At times, you will find yourself pulled in one direction or another. Instead of struggling to fit the same schedule you usually have, embrace the change and adjust your plans. The only way to keep your peace of mind is to accept that things change.

Learn to say NO.

What you don’t do is as important as what you do. Split your daily tasks into the have-to’s and want-to’s. A balanced life requires a daily, healthy mix of tasks you must do and things you want to do, so learn to say NO when the have-to's overtake your whole day.

Build on things that make you better and stop doing things that don’t bring value to your life.

Prioritize what really matters

We usually bite off more than we can chew and overwhelm ourselves with everything we could do, instead of focusing on what we need to do.

Here’s a short checklist to help you figure out what clutter you can get rid of to help you achieve peace of mind:

Check your day-to-day

- How much time do you spend on which activities in your life?

- Are you happy with that?

- Is anything taking more time or energy than you're willing to give?

Put things into perspective

Ask yourself: ‘Will this matter or benefit me in 5 years?’

If the answer is ‘no’, take a long hard look at why you’re wasting your time and energy doing it at all.

Plan tasks and set goals

Set your goals and outline a list of tasks that will help you achieve them. Want to spend more time with your family? Get out of the house more? Do more at work? Plan activities that will help you achieve that daily, weekly, and monthly, and most importantly, stick by them.

Keep in mind that the ultimate goal is balance in life, not doing as much as you possibly can.

Ask for help

Everything is easier when someone is helping us. Balancing everything on your own is nearly impossible and too much stress for one person to carry alone.

Reaching out and asking for help is not a sign of weakness, it’s just plain being human.

Do what you love

When was the last time you thought to yourself:

‘O, I love doing that, I’ll do that today’

How about:

‘This must be done, so I’ll do that today’

Chances are you did the second one today, and the first one keeps getting pushed back for when you don't have any family obligations or you don’t need to clean your flat.

What makes you happy? Go do more of that.

We’re constantly reminded of everything we must do and it’s really easy to forget the things we love to do. But those are the most important ones and really, the ones we should be doing more of.

So, here’s our advice:

Find time to make it happen

If just thinking of an activity makes you smile, then make time to do it. Yes, it will still take time and energy, but it will boost your mood and make it easier to do the rest of your tasks as well.

Try something new

Take risks and remember that everything interesting starts just outside our comfort zone. So venture outside your comfort zone, even if it’s only a little. You’ll love some of it and learn from the rest. And here’s the beauty of it – the ones you hate, you never have to do again.

Find your own peace of mind

When it comes to personal peace of mind, there is no right or wrong answer. What works wonders for some might not work for you, so it’s important to take time and find your own things to enjoy.

Be kind to yourself

It’s far too easy to see something on social and think it represents reality when in truth, it was most likely heavily staged (or even AI-generated). Don’t be hard on yourself if your journey takes longer or doesn’t yield the same results as it does for others.

Instead, reflect on what you’ve already achieved and how far you’ve come.

Finding your balance takes planning, consistency, and some self-discipline. Each little change you make will make a difference, it's not a static goal you can achieve, it’s a journey of positive and negative aspects, all designed to make our lives an interesting experience.
