You Can’t Buy Peace

At most times, we may not realize that some of the most delicate necessities of life are all for Free. Fresh air, loads of water, sleep, and peace of mind are just some to name. None of the riches of the world could actually buy you the order that lies within you.

At most times, we may not realize that some of the most delicate necessities of life are all for Free. Fresh air, loads of water, sleep, and peace of mind are just some to name. None of the riches of the world could actually buy you the order that lies within you. Today, many of us spend hundreds of dollars on counselors and psychiatrists and not to forget on pills, and anti-depressants to subdue our feelings.

Fast paced life, irregular working hours, and unhealthy eating habits add load onto our lifestyle, struggling to keep up with the deadlines. But in this race of life do we realize the harm we do to our body, mind, and soul.

Do we understand the value of quality of life?

Do we tend to forget sometimes that we work and struggle for a living and not to disregard our life?

Have we got used to sleeping pills or anti-depressants to decide our mood?

Many a time, the stress of work or issues on your personal front could lead to insomnia—a state of mind where you actually are tired and sleepy and extremely drowsy, but you do not get sleep. You may struggle all night to sleep, but there is some hurdle that does not allow you. This could agitate you, and if this continues too long, you may go down to the initial stages of depression.

When something is on your mind, do not try diverting yourself from it. Immediate decisions are definitely not recommended. When issues linger around, it’s best when you have spoken about it and poured your heart out. “PROCRASTINATION DOES NOT HELP” there is never a good time for it, the right time is now. This ensures that you don’t have a heavy bag on your mind. If thoughts are still not sorted and solutions to problems are not yet found, then one would always have those at the back of one’s mind, irrespective of they being in a party, a social gathering or even dancing at a concert.

Can you Imagine a situation where you are driving your newly bought Mercedes with an awful backache? Would you genuinely enjoy the drive?

Thoughts go a similar way. Health, relationship, and wealth jointly have an impact on your mind, and a balance of the three is the correct path to keeping oneself at peace.

For the same, the first thing that one must do is to accept the situation and introspect to comprehend the problem or the reason for the current state of mind. At most times, you just realize that what you mounted on, for days was not even a problem, only a state of mind.

How often have you felt bad when counted as an example for your weight when watching a film with friends, but you only added to the laughter to avoid awkwardness.

The next step is to realize if you could alone find a solution to your problem or need someone’s help. Step three if not, then would you feel lighter by speaking it with someone close, like a friend, a colleague, or a neighbor? Step four, take out some time to speak the entire lot at length with a close one. If you are not comfortable speaking with the people around them, then visiting a counselor is a great idea, there is no harm, they are experts, only try avoiding it from becoming a habit.

Meditation definitely helps in keeping you calm during the process. Listening to calming sounds like the waves of the seas, flute, or a musical instrument could be of great assistance. Being around positive energies helps elevate negative thoughts and vibes. Do not run away from the problem and stay right till the end to resolve the entire issue and you would realize that once the problem is solved the mind would automatically get relaxed and you would feel like someone has taken off a sack of potatoes off your shoulders.

Many times there is a small pin stuck in our mind that gives rise to many other issues, and identifying it is the whole idea. At this time, do not opt for sleeping pills regularly. Alcohol is yet another medium people jump into but remember it’s only temporary. You have to get into the core and find out the roots to get rid of the plant growing inside you, and if you arrive late, it may grow into a huge tree.

Peace lies within you; do not try hunting it amidst luxury, lifestyle, social events, and promotions. Your state of mind and peace at heart is what really defines you as a person.
