What brings you peace? Is it being active or creative? Is it being surrounded by the people who love and support you most? Is it being financially secure or out of debt? Maybe knowing you and your loved ones are safe and sound brings you peace. Does listening to music or enjoying nature bring you peace? Maybe praying or meditating helps you feel at peace.
Being at peace can be described as being in a state of calmness and tranquility or freedom from negative thoughts. Whatever brings you peace now are the things that you should practice as often as possible, especially during challenging times. While some things will be more of a challenge to do at times, maintaining some peace requires work and commitment.
Think of “practicing peace” as an exercise for your mind and your spirits just like aerobic exercise is good for your heart. What is your peace practice? Drawing, painting, gardening, singing, reading, journaling, meditating, yoga, running, hiking, crafting, cooking or volunteering? Practice peace and become more peaceful, starting with repeating this affirmation today!
