In the end, we are all looking for little moments of peace. It isn’t always easy to find in a world that demands so much of us. When things go wrong, we tend to focus on all of the negative thoughts that are flying through our heads.
It’s simply easier to give in to the negative than to fight back with optimistic thoughts.
The trouble with fighting back with positive thoughts is that you’ll end up making yourself even more worried and stressed out, which is bad for your general health.
So how can you find those little bits of peace and calm?
There is a saying that goes like this – change what you can accept what you can’t. You might’ve heard it in movies that talk about addictions and rehab. No matter the origin, it is pretty spot on.
There are times in life when you don’t have the means or the ability to change the situations, but sometimes we can adjust our expectations to allow us to move through them.
If we get stuck complaining about the situation rather than working to change it or accepting it we can get into a negative cycle. That negative cycle can be very harmful.
We are lucky that we live in a world where there is a more open dialogue about mental health, addictions, chronic illness, and more. The more open these conversations are, the easier it becomes to seek help.
You might need support with anxiety; it might be depression, it might be daily debilitating pain. Whatever it is, if you want to move to a place of peace about it, you need to seek the help that you need.

Find the Green
When it comes to finding peace, green is where it is at. So make it your mission to head outside into the big wide world and find some green to enjoy. There are many studies that show the physical and mental health benefits of being in nature. It is not limited to a five-minute bump of feeling better either.
The more you do it, the better you will feel.
If you really want to find a little bit of zen, do something good for someone that needs it. You don’t need to tell them it was you, and it doesn’t need to be expensive either. Simply think about what they might need or want and do it.
When you feel good about what you have done, that is a very fulfilling feeling and can give us a sense of purpose too.
Where possible, add a little gratitude into your day too. What have you been openly thankful for lately? What is it that has brought you joy and enabled you to feel happy?
Being grateful is a very powerful tool.
