4 Strategies to Find Your Balance and Inner Peace
Inner peace goes beyond personal needs or goals for oneself – it’s a major contributing factor to cultivating peace in the world. That starts with the individual, so when you make strides toward achieving inner peace, you’re really contributing on a much larger level. Feels like a big responsibility, right?
Let’s not look at it as a responsibility but as a privilege. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to contribute by working on yourself. What are you waiting for? Let’s get started on cultivating balance and inner peace with these four strategies!
4 Strategies to Find Your Balance and Inner Peace Now:
1) Learn how to be mindful
Mindfulness is all about paying attention on purpose. It allows us to focus fully on the one thing we truly have. This moment. Developing a mindfulness practice helps us to stop living on autopilot, staying stuck in the past, or worrying about the future.
It sounds like a simple concept. And it is. But it’s not easy.
The good news is though that in each moment, you have the chance to be mindful again. Taking up this one practice will literally change your life.
2) Don’t take things too personally
You’re focusing on yourself, but you shouldn’t be internalizing. There’s a huge difference there. If you find yourself insulted easily, try to remember that it’s not a reflection on you.
The person who was grouchy at you may have just had a rough day or fought with their spouse this morning. The truth is, people rarely think about us as much as we believe they do.
3) Be still
It’s hard to be still and fully present. It’s doable, though. And peace is found in trying or practicing. It’s really a form of meditation.
Take time to sit on a beach or the grass outside, maybe at your local park. Instead of looking at all the people passing by and watching where they go, just sit still. Maybe you’ll want to close your eyes. Just let people pass by like clouds in the sky. You’re being present and refraining from overthinking. Enjoy the sensations of the wind blowing your hair and the sun on your face. Hear people talking without getting caught up in what they are saying. When your mind rushes ahead or wonders why a child is crying, just bring it back to your breath. You’ll find yourself smiling without even thinking about it. Now, that is inner peace.

4) Let your actions speak louder than words
This tip leads us back to where we started – cultivating peace in the world by finding it in ourselves.
When you’ve found a sense of balance and inner peace, you will naturally want to share it with others. You’ll want nothing more than to show others that peace isn’t as elusive as we believe in our fast-paced modern world.
You spread peace by being kind, compassionate, and loving to others.
Allow the peace you feel within fill the space and the people around you by the way you behave.
We are all living through times that seem strange and uncertain. However, life has and always will be uncertain.
We will never know what tomorrow brings.
The key to finding inner peace with this “uncertainty” is to remind yourself that now is all we have.
So, peace really is a decision you make with your mind. It cannot be found outside of yourself.
Therefore remind yourself, as often as possible, to live in the now.
