My Mind is at Peace

Stress is as much a mental issue as a physical one and it is important to know how to soothe and clear your mind. Sometimes it can be difficult to let go of things when you get home after a long day. You may even find yourself dreaming about work or other stressful situations each night. These are all signs that you are dealing with too much stress. But how do you let go of these nagging thoughts and feelings?

Clearing and soothing your mind can be achieved by focusing on something that you really enjoy. Everyone has the ability to focus, however, some people are more adept at maintaining their focus than others.

What you need is something that will distract you from the disturbing or unwanted thoughts and feelings that you are experiencing. Think back to a time when you were so engrossed in something that the time just flew by. This is the point where you want to be.

Getting to this point is easier than you might think. If you are having trouble allowing all the stress and tension to leave your body, you might want to try meditating. Mediation can help to relax your body and mind. If meditation doesn’t appeal to you, try using soothing music or sounds to help you relax.

Sounds to listen to that can help you focus and relax include the sounds of ocean waves, the sounds of a waterfall or the sounds of birds chirping. All of these can help ease, clear and soothe your mind.

It can also be helpful to have a point or object to focus on. Try lying on your bed and look at a picture that holds a special meaning to you. Perhaps it’s a picture of you vacationing with your friends, or a picture of you and your boyfriend at a special event. Maybe it’s a picture of a pet you cherish. Once you have your picture, put on your music or sounds, and let it envelop you. Stay focused on your picture as you connect to the positive thoughts and emotions you experience, allowing them to wash over you.

Reading is another wonderful source for relaxation. Losing yourself in a story is a great way to get out of your head. and helps you take your mind off worries and problems. Books can quickly transport you into another place and time and will easily transform your state of mind.

Another great way to relax and get back in touch with your body is to go for a massage. A great massage can relieve the tension in your muscles, leaving you refreshed and rejuvenated once again.

Soothing your mind involves learning how to discover or reconnect to the pleasures in your life. Once you have found what brings you peace, embrace it. Get into the habit of soothing your mind on a regular basis. You may want to start an evening routine to help you to wind down and relax before going to bed. Designate a specific time to start your evening routine, and do things that help soothe and relax you. Turn off the television, stop taking phone calls (unless there is an emergency), and stay off the internet. Dim the lights so your natural melatonin levels start to kick in. You might want to take a warm relaxing bath or shower to relieve and wash away the stress of the day. Do whatever it is that works for you. It’s important to quiet down all the external stimuli that bombards you every day, so that you can calm and soothe your mind. When your mind is at peace, you think clearly and precisely. Order is restored and you are able to reconnect with the good in your life and the positive vision you hold for your future.

Any time that your work or life in general is getting you down, treat yourself to something that makes you truly happy.

“A mind at peace, a mind centered and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe.” 

~ Wayne Dyer
