I used to think that peace was like riding a bicycle. If we can do it once, then we can do it for the rest of our lives. But over the years I have come to understand that ‘Calm down’ is something that we must constantly practice. If we stop practicing, we will come back to the highs again.
but how to keep calm Not distracted, what is it? In this article, I recommend everyone to find ways to calm down and choose according to their own situation and preferences. But before talking about ways to calm the mind, let’s look at the meaning of peace first.
what is peace
Peace means that you can find silence in the world. This doesn’t mean you have to make your life boring or that you have to stay home all the time.
we can see that True peace does not depend on the external environment nor does it depend on the situation in our lives. True peace means being aware of yourself and what you can do. If your mind is calm You will be able to accept yourself for who you are and no longer spend your time and energy on useless thoughts.
Peace is the opposite of anxiety. pondering and worrying

The way to calm down will have different meanings for different people. Some people find peace through chanting and meditating. Some people may find it by letting go of stress. Or some people may find it by going for a walk in nature.
I have learned that peace is all around us and it is also within us. but to calm down We must try to train ourselves. But the training instead made us feel so pressured that our hearts were not at peace.
Especially if we are in a stressful or aching situation. It is even more difficult for us to choose to remain calm rather than dwelling on our problems. Sometimes ruminating on life’s problems seems like the only option we can make.
But it’s not at all…we always have a choice. And there are many ways to calm down. no matter what situation we are in no matter what our brains say We must learn to find calming methods that are appropriate for ourselves and our circumstances.
