Calmness and Serenity are the things that gives you inner peace. Though taken for granted by most people – it’s one of the most beautiful things in life that each human beings to be able to feel, enjoy and have to their every day life.

Unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned. There are things that will disappoint us. There will be news that will surprise us. There will be stressful situation in our everyday life. How do we attain inner peace within ourselves when undergoing these things? It’s not easy – it takes a change of mindset, lifestyle and practice one step at a time.

1. Quiet Your Mind – One of the hardest things is to worry, be more stressed, feel anxious and over analyzed things ahead of time. It’s okay to worry, we are only human. We tend to lose our cool when surprised by certain situations but over thinking, assuming things ahead of time will not help. Giving into your fears and worries will not help at all and will only cause you more distractions and anxiety in life. Try to close your eyes and quiet down your mind – stop all the noise, the unnecessary thinking and try to be calm and rational as possible. Meditation helps a lot but if you don’t do that, you can always pray and give your worries to the Lord as He will never forsake you.

2. Be Patient – In some situations, we tend to rush things and we end up saying and doing certain things we later regret. It’s always best to keep in mind that saying something when you are mad or frustrated will not do anything good. In might cause a fall out in your relationship or your career and some words and actions cannot be taken back anymore. Sometimes, it helps to close your eyes and take three deep breathes.

In ancient times in the Chinese and Japanese culture, they all tend to do calligraphy on a daily basis – most especially when being in tough situations. It helps you put your focus on the calligraphy that you do – a way to practice patience, have inner peace, helps to stabilized your emotions and thoughts and most importantly, being able to make right decisions as a result.

Check out this book, Shodo: The Quiet Art of Japanese Zen Calligraphy which you can purchased in Amazon. In this beautiful and extraordinary book, Shozo Sato, an internationally recognized master of traditional Zen arts, teaches the Japanese art of calligraphy through the power and wisdom of Zen poetry – which also helps you being at the present moment and just having inner peace with oneself.

3. Love and Blessings – I do believe in Law of Attraction as this has been proven real and effective one too many times. When you are in a stressful situation, you tend to think negatively. It might be okay at first but to dwell yourself in those negative thoughts might not be a good idea. You do attract what you keep on bringing to yourself – the power of the mind is so strong and this is something we just can’t deny and take lightly. So focus on love, on your blessings, see the good in the situation – even the tiniest details will do, see and hope for the positive result. Believe and it will come to you.

4. Accept it. – One of the most important things in life is being able to accept that what has happened – already happened. We cannot do anything about it. We cannot keep on dwelling on our past mistakes, we cannot dwell on why things have happened this way or that.. We have to accept that good and bad things happen and it’s all part of your growth – it’s part of life. We experience things to transform and to develop to be a better person. It is nature’s law where there is light, there is dark; where there is night, there is day. After all, no problem doesn’t get solved. They all do. No matter how long it may take.. how stressful it can be.. things will get better. We just have to believe that there is always a light at the end of the road.
