Finding Inner Peace In The Midst Of Chaos
The world can be a chaotic place, and it seems even crazier now. From headache causing traffic jams to phones that never stop ringing, we’re constantly being pulled this way and that. Now we find ourselves in the middle of a global pandemic and things feel more chaotic than ever. Humans are incredibly resilient though and we will overcome this challenge in time.
A lot of us are working from home or on a mandatory break from work. We’re also socially isolating and distancing ourselves to protect our loved ones and keep the damage as low as possible. Even though the circumstances are unfortunate, you can use this time to make positive changes for the future.
When all of this is said and done, you can feel better knowing you worked on improving yourself. One of the biggest issues you might face in this modern world is finding peace in your life. When this pandemic ends, there will be lots of confusion and new sets of issues.
A lot of us might need to find our way again and we will need a positive attitude to deal with the changes. If you’re interested in using this time of uncertainty to find peace within yourself, these four tips are a good place to start:
Having unnecessary drama in your life is a surefire way to feel distressed. Feeling distressed makes everything else around you feel chaotic. Removing this extra drama allows you to focus on yourself and your mental health. If you want to find inner peace, you need to work on the problems that you can control.
I know it may be tempting to take on other people’s problems, but you need to take care of yourself first. You can’t control what happens in others’ lives and you can’t help them if you haven’t helped yourself. Use this time to make a list of all the obstacles you face in your life and pinpoint the ones that are within your control.
Some things are unavoidable, such as medical issues for example. But other things are fixable if you’re willing to address them. If one of your biggest issues is money, start thinking about making a career change. Write down what you would like to do for a living and how much it pays. Pick the one that you feel the best about and start applying like crazy.
If it requires a higher education then you can apply for grants, scholarships and loans and go back to school. Once you have your ideal and higher paying job you can begin repaying the loan in manageable increments.
If your medical issues are brought on by an unhealthy lifestyle and can be reversed, start working on your health. Prioritize yourself and your problems. Make a game plan for how to solve them, then you can help others with their issues.
This is also a good time to make a list of people who are toxic in your life and don’t benefit you at all. It’s better to be lonely than to be surrounded by people who just want to use you. You might even realize that you’ve been neglecting good friends for fake drama-filled ones.
Another way to get rid of extra drama is to just care about the opinions of certain people. You only need to listen to yourself and those who have your best interest at heart. Don’t worry about what random people or co-workers have to say about you. Those are their opinions and they’re entitled to them but they don’t have to affect you. This is especially true if their opinions are critical or negative.
Don’t take what you hear from people that barely know you too seriously. You can spend a lifetime trying to impress others and still never please them. Take the time to sit and identify who and what causes you the most drama in your life. Once you know the source of it you can begin eliminating it. The negative feelings and emotions they caused will disappear or be minimized and you’ll be so much better for it.
If you’re having a hard time pinpointing the source of unnecessary drama, getting a psychic reading can be of great help. A talented psychic advisor can help you figure out what toxic or harmful sources are negatively impacting your life. They can also aid you in creating a plan for either removing them or stop being affected by them.
There are a lot of sounds or situations that can subconsciously trigger your brain into feeling uneasy and distressed. It’s hard to be at peace with yourself when certain things can prompt these unpleasant feelings at any moment.
This is why it’s so beneficial to retrain your brain. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t something that happens overnight. This is something you have to decide you want and work on persistently.
One example of this is having to pass the restaurant where you met your ex everyday on your way to work. You were crazy about them and envisioned your future together but then they broke your heart.
It was one of the worst experiences of your life and even though you’ve moved on, it still stings when you pass the place. It brings up memories of the breakup and the heartache which then brings you down.
You need to get to where things like this no longer bother you. You can do this by training your brain to stop seeing it as a negative and start seeing it as a positive. Every time you pass the restaurant, make it a point to remember the good times you had. Every relationship teaches us something important in its wake, even if it ended badly.
Remind yourself that you were so full of love for someone and how great that made you feel. You are worthy of love and, if you haven’t found them yet, someone out there would love to be loved by you.
Instead of getting upset, remind yourself of all the things that relationship taught you and how you grew from it. View the restaurant as a sign of what was left behind and what great things are yet to come for you.
If the sounds of traffic and constant sirens bother you, make it a point to think of them as the sound of progress. Picture the people that are going about their day in order to provide for their loved ones and keep the world running.
These are very specific examples but they can teach you how to turn things around. Change your thought process every time you encounter a trigger. Soon it will become a habit and your feelings of unease will be replaced by feelings of peace. Perspective is everything and you can use it to your advantage.
Visualization is equally as important for finding peace in a crazy world as perspective is. Take the time to visualize how you would like certain situations or events to end. Do this every time you find yourself in a situation that stresses you out.
For example, if you lost your job and don’t know what you’re going to do, take a deep breath and picture the best-case scenario. Your friends and family might help keep you afloat and if they can’t, there are several programs that will.
Imagine that when everything settles down, you will find an even better job. This new job will be more enjoyable and even pay more. You will work your way up the ladder with your impressive work and you’ll become a great manager.
Use this same concept for any situation that causes you anxiety. Visualizing a positive outcome is important because your thoughts have more power than you know.
Once you’ve envisioned the best result, you’ll then have something to look forward to. When you have something to look forward to, you then have a specific goal and goals help you get to the destination way easier.
Visualization makes things feel much more attainable and that can give you the boost you need to make it happen. If visualizing the best outcome of something is difficult for you, chatting with an authentic psychic might help.
They can help you identify your problems one by one and guide you through the visualization process. They can advise you on the what solutions would be the most beneficial and help you understand how and why.
Sometimes things are too chaotic and finding inner peace doesn’t seem possible. I would be lying if I said that you’ll never feel stressed out ever again. Sometimes life throws things at you that are going to affect you negatively and that you can’t control.
Being quarantined because of this pandemic we’re experiencing has taught me a lot. It taught me that no matter how much we plan for things, nothing is concrete. Life can change in an instant and it can throw difficult things at us without warning.
These are the times when you should focus on the positive side of things. Almost every situation, no matter how bad it seems, has a flipside to it. For most of us, the negative part of it is the more obvious and dominant one. It’s the one we dwell on and give all our attention to. This is where you need to turn the tables and start thinking about the positive side.
If you can’t seem to find a positive side to your problem, remind yourself of all the other positives in your life. Don’t let this one issue consume you and take away from the good things you have. Things can always be worse and it’s important to be grateful for what you have no matter how difficult things are at the moment.
If you can’t find anything positive about your situation, just thinking back to a happy memory or something nice someone did for you can help. These things can bring you some peace while you work through everything else. Remember that hard times pass and you will get through this. Don’t let one problem undo all the good in your life.
Even though things are scary and confusing right now, you can still find peace within yourself. Don’t let the obstacles you’re facing fill your life with fear and anxiety. Use this time to sit with yourself, meditate, journal, contemplate, or speak to a psychic for clarity.
The more you practice now, the easier it gets and you can apply it to any part of your life. Things will go back to normal for us all soon enough. In the meantime, we need to keep ourselves mentally and physically healthy.
