5 Ways to Increase Inner Peace

Our lives are so over-scheduled that we go about our days frantic and preoccupied. It’s hard to relax or fully enjoy life with all of the distractions and upsets. Here are 5 simple ways to increase Inner Peace.


  1. Deep Breathing

When you’re feeling less than your best, try sitting quietly in a soothing location and just bask in the rhythm of your breath. Believe, there’s a reason a rejuvenating yoga practice always includes a lot of deep breathing; large inhalations and long, slow, complete exhalations help to calm the mind and increase feelings of joy.

2. Find Your Inner Power

Rather than allowing the pieces of life to fall in the place where they may, you have the chance to grasp control of your life and turn it into the one you want to lead. This begins with finding the power within to accomplish what you put your mind to; your inner power is the essence of who you really are. Harnessing this strength can help you overcome negative thoughts, emotions and patterns of behaviour.

3. Self-Love

Be Your Own Cheerleader cause simply put, self-love is the love you feel for who you are. It is not the love you get from another person or love you feel for another person. It can only come from deep inside you. You need to love yourself more. Love yourself in order to truly be loved back.

4. Motivate Yourself

As human beings, we are in constant need of motivation. It’s hard to motivate yourself to work out, to eat healthily or to drive your regular commute to work. Life challenges present themselves like clockwork and one uncomplicated way to find the energy to conquer them is through the day to day practice of gratitude.


5. Forgiveness

“Unconditional forgiveness is the path to your own inner peace.” -Jonathan Lockwood Huie. Why Holding Grudges Makes Us Unhappy. The pain of past scars can reopen at any time and remind us of intense hurts we’ve had to live through. Holding onto blame for what has happened to us is human nature; forgiveness is what sets us apart and allows us to break free from the prison of emotions we’re trapped in.
