You worry about a lot of things every day. Sometimes it is overwhelming but you cannot just abandon all the worry. You should know that worrying a lot is not healthy. When you feel like you are going to burst, you wish that you can have the peace of mind like Buddha. He renounced all the worldly things to achieve nirvana. However you cannot just renounce everything today especially if there are many people depending on you.

The good news is that you can have that peace of mind despite all the uncertainties and worries you feel. Here are the things that can help you achieve that peace of mind you’ve been dreaming about:

Change your heart

This means that letting go of the things you have no control over. One cause of suffering is your desiring of things to be different than they actually are. You should accept that sometimes life doesn’t give you what you want but if you change your heart, you will feel satisfied, calm and peaceful.

Appreciate yourself and others

You should make it a point to appreciate yourself and others around you. Noticing positive things in life and appreciating it can bring inner peace.

Check if you are having fun

Life is about having fun. If you are not having fun, stop whatever you are doing. If you feel happy and blissful, share it with your loved ones so your life will have meaningful experiences.


Take a deep breath when you encounter feelings of sadness, fear and anger.

Stop blaming and criticizing others

Blaming and criticizing others are full of negative vibes or energy. If you stop it, you will experience more peace and joy.

Move the body

If you are moving your body in unusual ways, you will have fun. As a result, undesirable thoughts will not appear for that moment. You can have peace and quiet no matter how short it is.

Problems come and go but there are others that persist if you don’t do something about it. You have to face all the adversities in life because it will make you stronger. Cliché but it is true. You cannot have a perfect life free of problems and if it will come, you have to deal with it. Perhaps you are familiar with “where there’s a will, there’s a way”. Remember that for every problem or adversities that you will encounter in life, there is a solution if you will it. Don’t feel hopeless and defeated. You can begin facing it by considering this guide:

Accept it

If you have problems, you cannot just deny it. You have to accept it.

Identify the problem

This is the part where you think of an alternative course of action. You should first identify the problem. After identifying it, you should determine the cause. If it is possible, point the root or main cause of your problem. The next thing that you should do is collect facts and information about the problem. The last part is the analysis of the problem where you will devise a plan or solution.

This will take time but do it anyway because it is for your own good.

Stop worrying

You are just wasting your time if you are constantly worrying. It will never take you anywhere. Take things slowly and relax for a while. Don’t be rash on your decision because you might live to regret it.

Espouse a positive mindset

Nothing beats a positive heart and mind. If you see the positive things in everything, problems will never shake you. Just consider problems opportunities that can make you better.

When you know someone who is suffering from a serious illness, the thought will sadden you. How much more if you are involved to that person? It will surely shatter you but that person doesn’t want that. You have to remain calm and accept the things you cannot change so that he/she can leave in peace. How can you help yourself or others when faced with a serious illness?

Perhaps it will help you if you know that when a person is seriously ill, chances are he/she is not suffering from a severe pain. With the increasing supply of pain relieving drugs and sedation, very few elderly patients suffer greatly with pain. That thought will at least comfort you. If that person will soon depart, you have to make the most out of his/her time. You can do the following things:

Sit with them. This means spending more time with him/her. You don’t know when he/she will depart so when you get the chance, grab it. If you want, you can sit with him/her and recollect memories of the past. It will make him/her happy. The time you spend with him/her will be appreciated. He/she will truly feel loved and important.

Do things together. It doesn’t have to be an outdoor or a strenuous activity. A simple book reading or knitting together can make a big difference.

Accept it. It is easier to deal with death and dying if you accept it. If the patient accepted it, there is no reason for you not to accept it. Just think that you will meet again soon. Yes it is painful but we know that somehow life must go on.

Say the words. He/she will depart peacefully if you continue to affirm that you love him/her no matter what.
