  • How to Find Peace in the Midst of Chaos

    Inner peace is the key to happiness, they say. Because of these, a lot of people are looking to find peace in this often stressful world. If you are one of them, then this one’s for you.

    In this blog post, we’ll share with you some tips that will help you cultivate a sense of peace despite everyday struggles. While it is impossible to do use all of them at once, it is still a good idea to give them a try until you eventually develop a greater sense of peace.

    Look at the bright side of things

    Life will sometimes be tough. There are times when we find ourselves in difficult situations. Maybe you got laid off from work, your relationship failed or you were diagnosed with a serious medical condition. More often than not, when we find ourselves in situations like these, we tend to look at others and tell ourselves how lucky they are. Sometimes, we can’t help but compare ourselves to others and be envious of them. If you do, you’ll only feel miserable. You may also think of yourself as a loser. This isn’t how it should be.

    Instead of feeling down and losing hope, try to focus on the bright side of things. Getting a divorce can be difficult, but at least you don’t have to endure your husband’s beating. Getting laid off from work can definitely hit you financially, but maybe there’s a better opportunity for you. Remember, there’s a reason for everything.

    Meditate

    A lot of people give up on meditation because they find it hard to shut down their thoughts. Sure, it can be difficult, but with regular practice, you’ll eventually get the hang of it. Plus, it can help you shut out the negative thoughts, worries and stress of everyday life. It will help you find a still tranquil point inside your mind and soul.

    As a beginner, you can start by practicing meditation for at least 10 to 15 minutes a day. Do this daily and try to make it a part of your every day routine. The best time to do this is in the morning. But you are also free to do so when you’re feeling stressed. Meditation is a great way to de-stress your mind. It calms mind down effortlessly.

    Make time for yourself

    Today, most people live a busy life. If you’re a working mom, you may have to juggle work, household chores and raising a family. You can’t relax after work since you still have to cook for your family, then clean up and then put the kids to bed.

    We understand that taking care of your family makes you happy, but you also need to take care of yourself. Make time for yourself, even if it’s just for a few minutes a day. Read a book, take a relaxing bath, go for a walk or spend time doing things you enjoy. This will help you relax and alleviate stress. By making time for yourself, you’ll experience more peace and joy in your days.

  • Self-Care Rituals to Practice Every Day

    A lot of people are living lives filled with noise, activity, appointments and responsibilities. You forget about your social life, stop going to the gym and even skip lunch once in a while to make time for all of these things.

    Prioritizing work and everyone else in your life may seem honorable. But if your calendar is overflowing, you might want to take a step back and re-evaluate your schedule.

    Self care is a vital habit for anyone who is seeking to live a healthy, sustainable life.  It nourishes your mind, body and spirit. When we are feeling our best physically, emotionally and mentally, we are more able to handle life’s stresses. We become more effective, energetic and maintain better relationship with others.

    Here are 4 easy ways to practice self care every day.

    Get moving

    The physical benefits of exercise are hard to ignore. It helps you stay fit, cuts the risk of certain diseases like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and certain cancer and can even encourage better brain health. Aside from the physical benefits, exercise also gives you a boost in confidence, energy and happiness levels. You don’t have to hit the gym to enjoy all these benefits. You can take a walk, go for a run, play golf, dance or swim. Find a physical activity that works for you.

    Eat healthy and mindfully

    It can take about 20 minutes for the brain to realize that you’re full, so slow down. Unless you’re in an eating contest, there’s no need to rush. Revel in the smell, texture and flavor of the food. Not only will you appreciate the food more, you’ll also end up eating less of it.

    Eat a wide range of foods to ensure that your body is getting all the nutrients it needs. Go easy on the meats and eat more greens. Also, avoid salty, sugary and processed foods.

    Make time for yourself

    A lot of people feel guilty about making time for themselves. Oftentimes, people would say “I have a lot of things to do” or “I don’t have time for that.” But if you do not take care of yourself, you cannot help or take care of other people.

    Spend at least an hour a day doing things you enjoy or makes you happy. Make time for it. You can watch a movie, go shopping, paint, go out with friends or spend time with your loved ones. Make your own happiness and well-being a priority. If you don’t, who will?

    Take a long, luxurious bath

    Is there anything more relaxing than a nice warm bath after a long day? A warm bath is best for relaxing your body. Dim the lights, light some candles and transform your bathroom into a private spa. You can also add scented oil such as rose or lavender oil for a more relaxing bath. This will not only help reduce stress, it can also make you feel good about yourself.
