How to Develop a Calm Mind

To develop a calm mind, you must first ask yourself what is calmness?

Calmness is the mental state of peace of mind being free from agitation, excitement, or disturbance. It also refers being in a state of serenity, tranquility, or peace. It’s so important to know what a state of calmness is while it’s also important to experience it every time. A sense of calmness offers us strength and resilience amid the chaos of life. Life throws chaos at us on a regular basis, whether it’s our finances, our relationships, or our health. In the work world, around 50 percent of people are burned out in industries like health care, banking, and nonprofits.

    There are lots of advantages we can achieve by developing a calm mind. When you’re so stressed up, you are more likely to react to situations than to respond with reason. You also perceive the world differently. Stress makes us narrowly focused, preventing us from seeing the bigger picture. When we’re calmer, our attention becomes broader. In fact, we literally see more things.

  Cultivating a more restful, relaxed state of mind doesn’t mean we’ll drown under all our responsibilities. Instead, research says it will bring us greater attention, energy, and creativity to tackle them. And science also points to simple ways we can tap into that calm state of mind to be more resilient in our chaotic lives.

The following are ways to develop a calm and peaceful mind:

Focus on gratitude

It’s good to practice gratitude in everything we are passing through. We should be grateful no matter what we are going through. It helps to focus more in issues at hand and not build anxiety.

    When we’re facing a series of challenges, it can be easy to slip into tunnel vision and focus on what’s going wrong at the expense of noticing what’s going well. Even taking the time to write down just three things each day that we feel grateful for can help reinstate a balanced perspective on our day-to-day experience.

Make time to meditate

Meditation has a number of positive effects on mind and body. It’s also deceptively hard, which is why many people try it once or twice but struggle to make it a regular habit.

   Meditation helps combat the physical and emotional effects of stress and has lasting benefits that affect your productivity, as well as your ability to relax. Set aside time to meditate for just 10 minutes a day over the next week or two and experience the benefits for yourself.

Distance yourself from negative self-talk and beliefs

We should avoid self-criticism because it reduce self-esteem.  We can’t necessarily stop ourselves experiencing negative self-talk and beliefs but we can distance ourselves from them. Using the phrase “I notice that… [I’m judging myself harshly for forgetting that file this morning]” whenever we identify a negative self-judgement or belief helps us see these beliefs for what they really are: opinions, rather than facts.

Experiment

It’s important to remember that everyone is different. What helps one person find peace and calm might have the opposite effect on the next. As you go about your day, notice the times when you feel most at ease and make note of what you’re doing at that time. Experiment with the methods above, as well as your own suggestions, and create your own list of activities that help your mind find clarity and relaxation.

   Some people find peace when talking to people they love and care about while some don’t find it easy doing such. That’s the importance of doing emotional experiment.

Keep a journal

   Journaling is a great way to get our thoughts out of our heads and onto paper. Writing down our most pressing thoughts and worries each day has a similar effect to talking to someone about them. By making time to journal, you’re giving yourself the chance to process your thoughts and feelings, and to express them in a safe, private space.

Conclusion

Life is full of ups and downs but we shouldn’t let that bring us down. We are stronger than we thought but when we are not calm, it’s like trying to see the bottom of a pot while the water in it is boiling. You can’t see the base until the water is calm.
