Find Peace and A corner
Is finding peace with oneself has become one hard task? 2020 and 2021 made lives complicated like never before.
We were all at some point left wondering what could be the end? Or will there be any new chores of possibilities for humankind? Of course, the pandemic has been cruel to us, so we are too with us. It has been a social lockdown more than a physical one. Leaving everyone either pissed off or finding alternatives to cope up with it.
Even though so many people lost their jobs, business was down; lives were on halt, schools were shut down, favorite entertainment venues were closed, restaurants, and whatnot. What’s more saddening was the loss of dear ones and social cut-off. The fact that men are social animals, and with the coming of the new variant, one thing is sure that the virus is not over us yet.
However, we should reap the positive out of it. See what life is offering us, asking us to restart our programming. But this time with a pinch of a holistic approach in it. Our lifestyle, including our food habits, culture, etc., has changed over the years. While being less conscious about health and well-being, be it mental or physical.
Balancing the routine between physical, mental, and spiritual health are priorities. Once we realize that there can be times when nature will overpower technology, science, and discoveries, things will start looking clearer. Last night, I read ‘5 Am Club’ by Robin Sharma, which probably was a thing of 2021, thanks to my secret Santa! The book talked about prioritizing four things:
- Mindset- Psychology wellness
- Heartset- Emotional well-being
- Health set- Physical health
- Soulset- Spiritual wellness
And, I understood that I never tried to balance these sets in our lives amidst our busy schedules and rat race, and when I fall apart, I cry. Or, be confused about life like what is more important; earn more money to be happy with less. The clash between my dreams and passion, what I want to become, and what I am today. And sometimes what others think of me. Thoughts are a mess sometimes.
It’s only after stress, anxiety, and poor health rip it all out of us, we frisk. The pandemic had the same effect on us. Consistency is essential in life by adding a little to your everyday life than once in a while is implicit, and I feel that’s how you find inner peace.
To find peace within is to understand, appreciate, build and create a being that is as stubborn as covid. Let it mutate with time and bring out the best in you. In life, nobody can be absolutely free from anything and everything. We are all connected; Jean-Jacques Rousseau said, “Man is born free but everywhere is in chains.”
Similarly, our body is well connected to our mind and soul. If we take care of our inner needs and learn to love ourselves, peace will find us. Before loving someone else, one should start loving oneself. Meet the quietness of the mind, calmness of the soul, and tranquility of the physical body to attain bliss.
A little more of 6 am sun rays, some fresh air, a mindful walk in the garden, talk and listen, read, write, or try healing therapy. Some self-time is what everyone should add to their daily routine now and then. Finding time to dilute stress, divert one’s mind and heart to develop positive emotions, and recreate vibrational energy is a way to find peace. Adding H2O to fill the empty spaces and stay hydrated is vital to conjure-up harmony.
Well, life can act like a fast-forward movie, and sometimes the playlist you want to listen to again and again. Watering the roots is more important than cleaning the leaves. Life is like the seasons and its changing color but surviving is not enough. To be happy is to be at peace with yourself. And, for ease to burgeon, love your ends, be in love. Never fall out of life. Life at peace is never a losing game.
