Personal Peace Workouts

Peace workouts? Yes. Peace workouts!
Being in harmony with self, friends, and the surrounding is a necessity. However, scenarios in life sometimes tend to be overwhelming and at times, we cannot control them. In such cases, we find ourselves in chaos and worrying too much. To retain peace during frustrating phases of life, we need to restructure our perception.
There are a number of things we can do to promote personal peace.

1. Having a positive attitudes
Doing away with negative attitude and adopting a positive one is a great achievement. People who are optimist see endless possibilities and opportunities in all situations. They find even the most minute goodness in a pile of trash and work with it. Dwelling on your past mistakes, and failures is an obstacle that leads to more frustrations. Therefore, to maintain peace you need to learn from the past mistakes, appreciate yourself for small things you succeed in, overcome the failure and move on with what works.

2. Being appreciative
Believe that for everything that happens, there is a reason. In our lives, people change, we get offended, and sometimes things we’ve work for fall apart. It is for a fact that we all have come across these frustrations at a point in our life. To maintain peace, we need to be patient in bad times, and take advantage of the good times. Finally, know when to let go and when to hold on.

3. Having an Outlet

When peace of mind is compromised, our judgement may be altered too. In wisdom, people say that we should not act in anger. Why? Because one might do something only to regret it later. Hence, it is advisable to find a way of managing negative emotions; anger, disappointment, hatred among others. Some ways we can manage negative emotions are venting (sharing with a trusted person), doing something that makes you feel good, such as a hobby and avoiding being alone. Moreover, you can choose to get lost in a good movie, a book, a walk or visit friends and most important seek God. The idea is to help you calm down to be able to resolve whatever the issues you are going through.

4. Setting Limits
Setting well-defined and appropriate boundaries helps one to become more responsible with their lives. The limits should be well thought of and flexible to avoid contemporary challenges. Among the things that need planning to enhance peace include time management, things-to-do list, shopping list, friends and family. Setting limits is defining where, when, what and how far to pursue your ideas and goals without creating the unnecessary danger, and with whom.
Finally, take one thing at a time.

One More Book in your Diet!

Reading Enhance Confidence

            Books enhance intelligence. Reading is a medium of acquiring language, sharing ideas, and communicating. Long before the advent of modern technology, reading was among the ways of passing the time. Nowadays, millennials, gen-Y, and gen-Z, use modern technology, especially the internet, to pursue more interactive activities. Therefore, reading offers a fantastic escape from the electronic gadgets in this digital era, creating an avenue for some peace of mind. Listed below are important reasons why you need to read one more book.

To gain the wisdom of life

Reading cultivates good judgment, and discernment of the path of pursuit of peace. We all have one lifetime, and reading exposes us to more profound insight on the full meaning of life than we could possibly perceive by ourselves. Moreover, reading allows us to recognize qualities that build positive human relationships, and problem-solving skills to thrive in the world.

To gain knowledge and become smarter every day.

Reading sharpens our understanding of the working of the material world. Books act as manuals, offering vast quantities of essential facts and information. Through recorded history and experiences, writers communicate skills required to achieve optimum results in every field. Therefore, reading is a valuable tool in the expansion of knowledge and vocabulary, and acquisition of skills.

To broaden the imagination and enhance critical thinking.

The more the time spent reading, the greater the meditation and creativity achieved. Books allow one to have a moment of calmness, and develop the ability to think deeply on an idea, thus enhancing our thinking capacity.

To boost concentration and expand your memory.

Unlike watching videos, reading revives parts of the brain that would otherwise become retarded. Boosting the brain through books enhances its development in terms of concentration and memory retention. Reading stimulates our mental operating system and improves the functions of the human senses.

In conclusion, there is a fine line between readers and the rest of the world. Reading is, therefore, an ideal habit to nurture.

Getting Home

7 Ways To Get Home

The saying goes, “east or west, home is the best.” However, there is no proper definition of home. In the pursuit of securing human rights, everyone has acquired the privilege of embracing their own opinions and trues of every theme in life. This, however, does not change the solid wall that defines the extent to which something is real and practical. My opinion of the matter takes to its own life. Although it is reflective of what is already established, it reveals just how profound simplicity is.

Home is the place of peace, joy, and happiness. Every soul walks to attain this mark; every definite purpose is set to achieve this state, without compromising anyone’s worth. The construct of physiological and psychological stability defines a home. It is where the mind finds peace, and the heart is at real joy.

Here are seven positive ways to get home. These are:

  • Pursuing peace

The mind cannot contain the limits of pursuing peace. No one can accomplish every point of what it means. How can one pursue peace, really? The list includes walking at your own pace in life, minding the heart of others, doing what pleases your heart and avoid compromising the peace of others. Maintaining physical cleanliness, observing pureness of thoughts, setting high standards of self-worth and abiding by them, being humble, and truthful. Providing for those who are with real need, rebuking stubbornness and destructive pride, seeking after righteousness, forgiving all wrongs, praying, giving, and so on.

The argument is that every worthy deed and upright achievement in life is a way of pursuing peace. It goes without saying then that the following methods do not fall outside that truth.

  • Committing to justice and uprightness

Justice endorses fairness; uprightness cherishes the truth and nobility of heart. A just and upright person will always rise to a worthy cause. Chance favors the just while favor finds the honest.

  • Avoiding compromising with life

The only difference between failure and success lies in the set of choices that someone makes in the course of their life. Every decision made has a consequence. Making the right decisions and avoiding taking any moment in life for granted is a sure way to get to the home of our desire. Nature is unforgiving and gives back in full whatever you set into motion.

  • Overcoming fear and harmful addictions

The eight things we fear most are “death, poverty, criticism, failure, rejection, losing the love of someone, illness, old age.” The spirit of fear kills our ability to achieve our desire. What one fears most has the habit of drawing up to them. The only solution is to convict your heart against fear.

 Harmful addictions are a means of escapism. They create the illusion of comfort and distract the mind from reality. One forgets problems at hand for a brief moment but still wakes up to them. The effort needed to overcome an addiction is real. The sacrifice it calls for is excellent. However, the peace of freedom attained is worth it.

  • The walk of hope, faith, and persistence

Hope moves us to anticipate a better tomorrow. Faith, on the other hand, removes all doubt on things expected. Persistence proves continuous action towards a specific goal in life. The best solution is to close our minds to all negative suggestions and embrace the desire for fulfillment in life.

  • Setting high goals and actually achieving them

It is said that what you aspire in life and achieve is who you are. This means everyone passes judgment upon himself or herself. Goals give us a reason to move forward. They mark a specific point of our accomplishment. People who accomplish their goals in life possess high worth.

  • Reading and understanding the Bible

The Bible is the Word of God, which contains the solution to every problem in the life of man. It owns the wisdom and meaning of life. The pursuit of knowledge and understanding of our physical world does not offer much fulfillment to the heart and soul. Satisfaction comes from the most profound comprehension of who and why we are. The Word of God does not insist on its own way, whereas the laws we set directly dictate and force us to choices we MUST abide by.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
