Let’s talk about better living! Our new interactive family corner aims to expand our lifestyle horizons with practical little pearls of wisdom from the editor and input from our readers.

For most people with hectic lifestyles in our fast-paced world, feeling peaceful and serene is an elusive goal. If we cannot achieve inner balance due to chronic stress and anxiety, it is unlikely we will be able to attain harmony living in the outer world. We find ourselves doing and saying things we don’t mean, arguing with people we love and forgetting the most important things in life. It is a vicious cycle that leaves us feeling confused and miserable.

Here are some expert tips to introduce more tranquility and balance to your life.

Forgive:
Forgiveness is the first rule you should live by to have more peace in life. Forgive others and yourself no matter what they and you did. We are human beings and we all tend to make mistakes. By forgiving everyone, you will be able to live life without anger and grievance. You should also forgive yourself for everything you’ve done and everything you can’t change.

Accept things you can’t change:
Try to accept circumstances in your life that have been hurtful, all mistakes you have made, and things that are holding you back from moving forward in life. If you really can’t change them, accept them. This way, you will be able to move on with your life.

Relate to others:
It’s so easy to judge others, especially when we are angry at someone, but if you want to have more peace in life, you should learn to relate to others. Instead of avoiding someone, try to understand them and help them. Put yourself in their shoes and don’t judge anyone.

Refresh your life:
Refresh your life with new goals, new dreams and new ideas once in a while to live more interesting life with purpose. Just make sure you don’t set too many goals. You need to relax every day no matter how busy your schedule is. Wealth is nothing without health. You can’t have more peace in life when you work the whole day and night.

Improve your relationships:
You should never stop improving relationships with other people. To live a more peaceful life, try to come to good terms with your parents, siblings, friends, co-workers and even enemies. This will give you a great sense of peace. Plus, you will worry less and stress less.

Let go of other people’s opinions:
To have more peace in life, you have to let go of the past and other people’s opinions. You need also to let go of any restraint that is holding you back from reaching your goals. When you dwell on the past, you won’t be able to look forward or live a happy and fulfilled life.

Revive your efforts:
Finally, check in with yourself every month and if you are not living by one of the rules mentioned above, make sure you revive these principles and start over. We all have busy schedules, so it’s no wonder we forget what matters. That’s why we need to know the rules to live by to have more peace in life
