Our life is put to the test when we are dealing with Chaos. Whether we’re stuck in traffic or dealing with today’s society our minds are in havoc. Chaos is inevitable. But what we need during a time like this is a calm mind. Even though it may seem impossible to maintain peace.
Chaos comes with uncertainty and insecurities, fears and the inability to control the situation. That’s when we need to channel our inner peace to reduce stress. All the outer chaos merely represents our mental state and by calming that chaos, our inner peace is found again. With all the drama and tension in everyday life, it’s hard to maintain peace amidst the challenges of life, especially in today’s world.
We have to realize that the outer world is always beyond our control. We can only control ourselves. Here are some ways I find peace when the world is in chaos:
Take A Breather
If you find yourself fearful, or anxious in a chaotic situation, one way to instead trigger a calming response is by taking deep breaths. It works more efficiently than you think. When things start getting out of hand what you need is a break- a break to breathe in fresh air and collect all your thoughts. Go for a walk or sit quietly with your eyes closed and breath deeply. At this moment you can be with yourself but also become aware of your thoughts. Once you regain clarity, you can get back to the side at hand.
Visualize The Situation
When you experience chaos , the first thing you need to do is to remain calm and visualize the situation. Envision the outcome you want, and think of ideas to have to reach a win – win situation with a friendlier approach. This way you won’t jump to conclusions and make decisions that you’ll regret later. Always remember to stop and think about the consequences of your actions. Taking a minute to organize your thoughts can help the situation better.
I see so many people angry and lashing out about what they have no control over. I know you’ve seen on television people that are trying to scratch people’s eyes out for not wearing a mask. I don’t see that as an affective solution. If you are a mask wearer and you see someone without a mask on choose to avoid that person.
Have Faith That Things Will Turn Out Okay
Don’t give up as soon as chaos hit you. The best way to create peace in your life is to have faith and believe with conviction that everything will be okay. You just need to give it time and assess the situation and you’ll be able to see more clearly. There will always be solutions, so don’t let the chaos scare you. You may wonder how faith can help deal with the chaos, but it gives you the feeling of knowing things will turn out okay. Without you realizing it faith can calm you down in a chaotic situation.
Focus On The Task At Hand
Don’t clutter your mind with too many things at once. Step away from ever and keep your eyes and heart focused on one mission. Cling to your purpose in life, and don’t let the chaos of the world get to you. Letting it get to you can disrupt your peace and dull your sparkle. Focus on how you can add value to your life and how to improve your situation. If you let chaos take over, you will be a mess of emotions all the time.
Take A Break To Reconnect
Sometimes, you think to much and it starts to get to you, That’s when chaos strikes. Prompt you brain to take a break to focus on something else like listening to music or read a book. It’s a great way to de-stress. It’s a great way to relax and get your mind of things, and with the stress taken care of you don’t need to worry about the chaos. Use that time to reconnect with someone or do so that relaxes your body and mind. Take time to restore yourself.
Find Your Place Of Serenity
No matter what’s going on in situations or the world we have to deal with always having a few serenity triggers that can give you instant relaxation. They will help you find a peaceful place whenever the need rises. It could be exercise, laughter, or even the peace of your vehicle. Having a light-hearted approach to chaos can help you return to a tranquil place.
We will never be able to control chaos. We need to focus on our own lives. Trust everything will turn out okay. And find things no matter how small to bring us happiness.
These are a few ways in which you can find inner peace amidst chaos. Don’t let chaos control you. Take charge of what you can. Whenever you feel the chaos heading your way, act immediately to avoid triggering a situation that will have bad consequences. And remember everything will be okay.
