Finding Inner Peace: 5 Daily Practices to Help You Nurture Inner Peace by Dr. Bradley Nelson
Every day, we go through a certain routine to maintain our outward appearance or hygiene. We take a shower, brush our teeth, change our clothes and maybe put on makeup and style our hair. We do all of this because it’s healthy and socially encouraged. But how much daily care do you put into maintaining your inner self? Are you giving your inside as much attention as your outside?
Many of us might argue that the inside is more important, but if we’re being honest, few of us probably take the time to actively maintain our inner peace on a consistent basis. Here are my tips to help you get closer to inner peace:
- Energy Healing: Energy healing may be the easiest, most effective way to maintain your sense of inner peace. Practicing The Emotion Code on yourself or with a practitioner on a regular basis could help you address emotional energy that could become trapped, especially when you’re going through difficult times. Each session can even be done from far away or by proxy, and only takes a few minutes. Spending just a few minutes a week or a month to take care of your emotional health is more than worth the investment.
- Meditation: Like energy healing sessions, meditation only needs to take a few minutes each time. You can meditate as often as you like, but consistency is key. Use a guided recording or go your own way. The idea is to spend a few minutes alone with yourself, taking a break from the rest of the world to focus on your breathing, relaxation and feeling at peace.
- Gratitude: Gratitude is one of the highest (if not the highest) vibrations you can feel. Try taking a few minutes every day to focus on it. Be grateful for the things you have, but also focus on the non-material aspects of your life, including love, creativity, talents and friendship.
- Self-care: Self-care is critical to maintaining inner peace. If you neglect your own needs, you are bound to be more stressed and frustrated when things get busy or difficult. No matter how tight your schedule is, take time to take care of yourself. Take a walk or a power nap. Buy yourself a little something. Feed yourself good food. Get to bed a little earlier.
- Service: Notice others around you, especially those closest to you. They are likely stressed just like you might be. Ask how they are doing, listen to them and tune into their feelings. Think about how you might help in a meaningful way. Practice serving out of love and understanding. Small acts of kindness go a long way, not only serve them but to lift you as well.
Do things that make you feel good about yourself. It doesn’t need to take hours a day, but self-care can go a long way to helping you feel at peace or bounce back from a tough day.
