ways to find your serenity when life gets crazy

Life is a beautiful thing, but it can be hectic and chaotic! A little crazy here, a little crazy there, but to sum it all up, it’s a beautifully chaotic life. Each day we juggle so many things at once, and sometimes it can be overwhelming, to say the least. And somehow, it is essential to find your serenity in the midst of chaos.

Some people seem to enjoy life effortlessly than others, even if their lives are as chaotic and busy. However, they peacefully accept the good, the bad, and the ugly with an open mind and heart. They don’t get caught up in the family drama. They don’t get upset with the tiniest stuff, insults don’t give them a chipped shoulder, they don’t make mountains out of molehills, and they definitely don’t cry over spilled milk. 

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” – Lao Tzu

These are the people who often see the silver lining in every storm, they don’t let mistakes and failure be a hindrance to their serenity. Life is messy and crazy, but they will always find the calmness in the middle of it all

So, how can we find serenity, our inner peace in this crazy mad world?

Let’s focus on healthy ways that will help you find serenity even when life gets crazy, a balanced lifestyle, and a beautiful inner peace every day. 

Here are some ways you can take a breather you deserve and find your serenity:

Give Thanks

Gratitude is a compelling attitude of being thankful for what you have in your life, taking nothing for granted. Try to start and end your day by giving thanks for all that you have. Don’t forget to always count your blessings.

Morning Peace

When you start your day in peace, you’ll have peace and calm throughout your day. A great way to begin a serene day is to let your digital devices wait. Don’t use your mobile phone the moment you open your eyes. Give your brain and body the chance to wake up, savor a peaceful and quiet morning before starting your day with a buzz.

Find Your Serenity: Practice Acceptance

When you practice acceptance, it doesn’t mean that you allow yourself to be treated poorly by others. Whether you are dealing with something in your personal life or the crazy world around you, acceptance can be very challenging. It’s hard to practice acceptance, especially when things aren’t going our way and when we feel that we are not in control of situations. But always remember that life will always throw a curveball at us, acceptance is understanding what you can and cannot change. Let’s accept it with grace.

Smile

Smile. Smiling has lots of health benefits, according to research. It increases immune function, extends your longevity, reduces your blood pressure, and increases focus and productivity. So, don’t get caught up in your own thoughts, notice the beauty around you, the people around you, and share your sincere smile to someone. Smiling will make you feel happy while making others happy too.

Calm Your Wandering Mind

When our mind wanders too much too often, it’s a sign that we are mentally off-course. We get irritated, we obsess about non-essential stuff, and we drift away to disturbing thoughts. When any of these happens, stop right away. Instead, bring them back to what you truly love. Remember your passion, your happy thoughts, and whatever it is that inspires you.

Subtract

Are you trying to do too much? Do you think your whole identity rests on how much you can accomplish? Stop right there! It’s a trap, don’t get caught up in that mind chatter you have going on! Alternatively, remind yourself that you are worthy, and you don’t have to prove yourself by doing too much at once. Simply, do one thing at a time, and avoid the stress.

Find Your Serenity: Get Enough Sleep

When you get enough sleep each night, you will wake up more relaxed with a clear mind. Our minds can’t clearly think if it’s not well-rested. So, develop a good sleeping habit and allow your brain to get the rest it deserves.

Meditate Outside

Meditation is calming. The proof of daily meditations is rising and it turns out that we can prepare our minds to be still. It can help calm down our minds effortlessly. So slowly stroll outside, in a garden, or wherever you feel like it. Take notice of the beauty around you and appreciate every little thing.

Sunrise, Sunsets, Stars, and the Night Sky

These are my favorite things to do, watching the sun, the moon, the stars, and the sky. It’s such an expansive moment when you feel that inner peace as the sun goes down, or looking at the sky full of stars. So, don’t miss out on these intensely nourishing foods for your soul. Step outside and enjoy the marvelous beauty above.

Serenity is a state of calmness, inner peace, the untroubled. If you develop these habits, you can make your life calmer, and you’ll feel serene. It’s a ripple effect on those around you which will make their lives better too. 

Establish a pace of life that’s right for you, a complete blend, the perfect blend, for a balanced lifestyle. Tap into your inner Dalai Lama and apply vital mind soothers that works for you. When you experience a state of serenity, it will help you to stay away from the chronic stress of life. 

P.S. People who find serenity, their inner peace, are better equipped to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
