4 Secrets to Staying Calm and Undisturbed During Stressful Times

“A still mind heals everything”

Being able to find inner peace is one of the greatest skills a person can acquire. A calm mind helps us appreciate the good times, live through the bad, and be present in every moment in between. But some days… it’s hard. The car won’t start, your kids are screaming for your attention, there’s not enough money in the bank, your boss is chasing you and your work is piling up. When you find yourself in those situations, it is more important than ever to find that calm center within so that you can come out stronger and better on the other side. When you find it impossible to keep your cool, try to remember these 4 things:

1) Experience doesn’t create peace, you do

I find that many of us are waiting for an excuse to be calm and undisturbed. We expect it to come when we book a day at a spa or take a bath or go for a walk outside. Activities can definitely help us feel calm and relaxed, but they cannot create peace for us. Peace comes from within. Think about the last time you felt relaxed, imagine yourself sitting on a sandy beach, listening to the calming sounds of the ocean, breathing the salty sea air. Picture yourself on this beach for ten seconds. Go ahead and give it a fair try.

Can you feel the calm? Did you feel the relaxation radiating through you? You feel it because you created it! You didn’t really need a beach or a massage or a salty sea air to take you to that state of peace. You called it up in your mind and experienced it right here and now. That’s the power you have over your inner world. Use it wisely.

2) Give yourself permission to feel peace

The reason we usually feel so relaxed at the beach, in nature, or at a spa is because we’ve given ourselves permission to let it go for a while. Vacations and spa days are just excuses for many of us to relax. It’s unbelievable that so many of us think we have to go somewhere or spend money on an activity to “allow” ourselves to relax.

Learn to give yourself the green light. relax. Visualize yourself on a beautiful beach. Let go of the need for control. You will be surprised how many of the insignificant things we worry about endlessly resolve themselves when we decide to let go.

3) Make peace a priority

You and only you are in charge of your schedule every day. As much as the outer world has its requirements, you decide what is going to be a priority in your actions and thoughts each day. If your intention is to create more peace in your life, I recommend starting or ending your day with a technique to help you relax your mind and body. A peaceful activity doesn’t have to last more than a few minutes. In some cases, just thirty seconds is enough to bring your mind back to the present moment.

4) Practice!

Staying calm and undisturbed in the midst of drama or conflict can be difficult, but not impossible. If you’ve decided to use a peaceful technique for a few minutes each day, it becomes easier to tap into this inner calmness during stressful times. If it is helpful, imagine peace as a white light in the center of your chest. Every time you need access to it, all you have to do is conjure up the image of the light in your mind and it flows through you. The more often you tap into this inner peace, the more powerful it becomes. Use it as often as you need.
