"Peace comes from within.Do not seek it without."~ Buddha
Regardless of how much sleep you get or stress you feel, you have an opportunity each day, many times a day, to get and feel peace.
Being high energy and low stress is something I have worked on consciously for years, and now it is a peaceful place for me.
Peace can be calm and quiet for some, and peace can be energizing and reverberating for others.
Whatever peace is and means for you, please consider it as a reachable goal and feeling you not only can experience, you deserve to have...not simply by chance, rather by change...changing your approach.
Here are four approaches to getting to PEACe:
P - Presence - Only say yes to what you want to do, and when you do those things, be fully "there". The present tense is more than a verb form, it is a state of mind. Peace is part of your mindset first, and experience, second.
E - Engagement - Once you are present, fully, you can engage with the experience and the people around you. This relates to peace in that there is knowledge and growth, reassurance, and joy that comes from engaging.
A - Accept - Be willing to embrace that things will not be perfect. Perfection is the enemy of peace. While perfection can be appealing, peace is about accepting and appreciating what is happening and who you have in your life.
C - Calm - Presence is about the state of mind, and calm in this approach is about calming your fears and doubts through appreciating and acknowledging YOU and who you are as well as what you bring to the table. When you quell those negative thoughts, many other aspects of your life come into focus with a calm anticipation, too.
And, when you have presence, engagement, acceptance, and calm, you can fully experience:
e - enjoyment - Having peace means that you can enjoy mistakes for the learning, wins for the journey, and success for the accomplishment. The PEACe approach is about your perspective, and therefore your own way to enjoy life!
