So you’re working toward inner peace. Perhaps you’ve already settled into a harmonious routine, and you feel like you’ve already found the tranquility you’ve been seeking. Your journey doesn’t end there. Nope, it’s a lifelong endeavor of maintaining your happiness and fulfillment. It’s not something to stress over, though. It’s an exciting journey — and it starts here:
1) It is what it is
You’ve heard the saying, and you’ve probably said it yourself. But have you lived up to it? Every time you try to fight what life is handing you, you’re just creating a struggle for yourself. This is one of those practices that is ongoing. Practice accept that it is what it is in each moment. Become like Teflon, and let noting stick on you.
2) Confront your feelings
Stop with the “I’m fine” speech. If you’re feeling something (negative, positive, or anything in between), show yourself some respect and allow yourself to experience those feelings! Life is too meaningful not to acknowledge your feelings and let them be expressed appropriately.
3) Pay attention to every aspect of your life
That twinge of guilt? An overdue bill? Dirty windows that need to be cleaned? Often, we ignore things that seem like “little things,” but these “little things” add up and pile on top of each other over time. Pay attention to your life — especially when it has to do with your wellbeing.
4) Peace > Performance
Sure, we all love to perform well and aim for success. Sometimes it comes at a cost, though. If you notice yourself overpromising and working too hard at the expense of your happiness, relationship, and wellbeing, it’s probably time to tone it down and take some time to find peace with yourself. Remember that success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.
5) Minimize clutter

You may be inclined to live your life among the clutter, but this does not keep you stay on top of things. If you make it a regular habit to de-clutter, you’ll feel a tremendous sense of relief. Remember that your emotions and feelings will reflect the world around you.
