Mastering Inner Peace

“If there’s no inner peace, people can’t give it to you. The husband or wife can’t give it to you.

Your children can’t give it to you.

You have to give it to you”

– Linda Evans

The distractions, the many disappointments in life, the conflicts here and there, the turmoil all around you, the failures, the dashed hopes, the wars, the fading love, the stressful situations, the busy schedules, the fights, the fears, the conflicts within & without…There are so many reasons to loose your peace in life as life can be utterly unpredictable. You may not be in complete control of what happens around you but you are definitely in complete control of what happens inside you!  Knowing that you are in charge of the state of your mind and emotions is the first step towards mastering inner peace. For you to make any form of impact in life at all, you must be able to know what it is to create and maintain peace within yourself so that you can share it with others around you as well.

“First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others”

-Thomas a Kempis

The next step is to actually take responsibility for your state of being through conscious efforts. As such, you take back the power for people or situations to determine your state of being regardless of your experiences. Focus on your perception of events so as to avoid irrational thinking patterns about situations because such irrational thinking patterns will lead to irrational behaviour patterns that can rob you off your inner peace and on the long run, fuel negative emotions as well as negative outcomes. The secret here is not about controlling external events which is impossible because you can neither control people nor control what life brings but you can control your internal processes like your thought patterns and how you perceive events.

Everyone loves a peaceful person…

 “For peace of mind, we need to resign as general manager of the universe”

-Larry Eisenberg

In mastering inner peace, we should always remember to inculcate the following practical tips in our daily lives:

  • Learn to respond to situations rather than reacting to them
  • Learn to be mindful of your current state of mind and resolve conflicts quickly
  • Learn to let go off hurtful experiences
  • Learn to forgive easily
  • Learn to accommodate others
  • Learn to meditate on good thoughts
  • Learn to treat others well
  • Love freely

To adequately practice all of these, mindfulness meditation should become a vital part of our everyday lives. Through mindfulness meditation, you will learn to gain awareness and be in control of your thoughts, feelings and state of being. Furthermore, it will improve your relationships and your health in general.

The Secret to Better Relationships

Relationships are usually said to be the most meaningful part of people’s lives. Be it parent-child relationships, romantic relationships or relationships with colleagues at work, man as a social being has an innate need to bond with others. Over time, we become dependent on the significant relationships we have formed which affect our well-being.

It is well known that most, if not all, relationships are imperfect. Furthermore, as time goes by, changes that occur in one’s life could either affect a significant relationship positively or adversely. These life changes include ageing, moving from one job to another or the death of a family member. Regardless of these, there is a secret that will improve your relationships and guard them from whatever changes or inconveniences life may bring.

“The secret to better relationships lies in the practice of mindfulness meditation.”

Mindfulness, involves being fully aware of the present moment. It awakens your consciousness to your emotions and also those of others. With mindfulness, you can easily perceive underlying intentions and subjective feelings which improve your understanding of others and capacity for empathy and compassion. Practicing mindfulness can make your relationships better in the following ways:

1. Discovery discovery

Mindfulness meditation enables one to focus deeply on the present moment which encourages further discovery of oneself and others. For example, romantic relationships often get to the point where it becomes routine and boring and this could be harmful for any relationship. Mindfulness helps you discover aspects of yourself, your partner, child or colleague that you may have missed in previous times due to lack of focus or change in the person over time. This helps you to see yourself and others in a new light and would prevent a routine relationship.

2. Self-Love self love

Mindfulness elicits self-appreciation and self-satisfaction. At that moment you accept yourself with all your imperfections and bask in your inner thoughts about you. You learn to love yourself. Do more things you like, eat what you like, go where you like and even make better decisions in life. In order to love others in relationships you must first LOVE YOURSELF. You cannot give what you do not have. You would need to be satisfied with yourself in order to readily see the best in others. Pretense or putting up a façade harms relationships. As such, a genuine love for oneself leads to self-acceptance and being one’s self which is key to any healthy relationship.

3. Managing emotions anger

Mismanagement of emotions is a major cause of conflict in relationships. Mindfulness meditation makes you realize that you have control over your emotions and only YOU can make YOU sad or happy. This way you do not blame others for your emotions but take full accountability for them.

Techniques used in mindfulness meditation can be used by anyone anywhere and at any time. Techniques such as couples meditation helps couples connect more deeply each day and increases levels of empathy in relationships. Mindfulness meditation is done at the discretion of the individual and usually becomes a life-long habit that would continually improve you as an individual as well as various relationships with others.

Now you know the secret to better relationships!

Stress occurs when one is faced with a situation that proves difficult to manage.  When  you can’t manage the stressful situation or feel that you can’t meet the demands of that situation, your body goes into a  fight or flight response which triggers muscle tension,  increase in blood pressure, and heart rate and release of stress hormones. These responses increase the demands placed on the organs of the body and reduces the efficiency of  the immune system while giving room for infections and diseases especially when the body is continuously presented with stressful situations.

How stress leads to illness

Thus, stress can not only your  affect your emotional health leading to anxiety disorders and depression but it can also be injurious to your physical well being.Research has revealed that several  health problems are associated with stress as  stress seems to worsen or increase the risk of health conditions like obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, gastrointestinal problems (ulcer), and asthma. Stress also fast tracks the aging process by 7 to 19 years .

Give yourself a “Brain Boost” with Mindfulness Meditation and Deep Breathing

Decision making, problem solving, creative thinking, studying, critical thinking and analysis, planning, organizing, are just some of the cognitive processes that are involved in our everyday life. Whether it’s the student who needs to focus for long hours in preparation for an exam, a lawyer who needs to prepare for a court case, a surgeon who is conducting surgery in a few hours, or an accountant who has to pay great attention to detail, our mental or cognitive functions need to be at their peak to avoid errors and to achieve the peak performance.problem

We can be at our best each time and moment in spite of the overwhelming stress and pressure that we face. There are deadlines to meet, targets to reach, grades to attain, cases to win, deals to seal,  projects to initiate and many demands that we place on ourselves which lead to stress.

The impact of stress on your cognitive functions cannot be downplayed. When we are stressed, it’s usually very difficult to think clearly or get involved in tasks without making mistakes. Our memory seems to be poor as high stress levels may lead to poor recall or forgetting information.

Mindfulness Meditation is a tool that can help you improve your mental functioning by combating the effects of stress.
