Inner peace is something that you can have in any given moment. Having true inner peace begins with choosing it. Make inner peace a daily choice. Commit to a life filled with inner peace. True inner peace means the outer circumstances do not run your inner world.
Start first with your breath. A deep breath helps create a pause between external stimuli and your response. Decrease the noise around you. Close your eyes- if you can- even for a moment. Ground yourself- feel your feet on the floor. Slow down your breathing. Imagine your muscles relaxing- especially your neck, your shoulders, your hands, behind your eyes, and your forehead.
This focus on the physical will calm your thoughts and help you center yourself. You can then, choose a deliberate response rather than a reaction.
Choose a mantra- all is well, peace, God is within me, Let go-let God…. whatever works for you. Use it to maintain inner peace- even during turmoil.
