We all want to live a peaceful life- a life without stress. But is that really possible? If it is possible, how can we achieve it?

The answers to the above questions are in our own hands, in our thoughts, and in our actions.

We can enjoy our lives if we can accept the fact that there is NO stress-free life. It is not possible. But what we can do is to learn how to live and manage our problems. We can do that. It is simple. To do that, let us explore the following strategies:

Spend time with the right people. We love our friends. We want to be with our friends. But the question is, “Are they the right friends?”

Be happy with what you have. If you don’t stop complaining about what is missing, you will never see what is present. Learn to let go of what is holding you back, and open your door to what will take you to the next level- your dreams.

Respect yourself and others. Respect other people. Respect yourself. Value who you are, not who you are not. The more you respect yourself, the more you will feel good about yourself. It is good for your health.

Love. A loving heart knows no hate. Love is fearless. Love can conquer all things. Where there is love, there is life. If you want to live a peaceful life, love is the way.

Laugh. Laugh at yourself everyday! It frees up your mind. Do not be too big to laugh at yourself. Marla Cilley says, “Laugh everyday, even if it’s at yourself!”

Discipline yourself. If you lack discipline, you will find it difficult to live a peaceful life. Jim Rohn said, “Every discipline, or lack of one, affects every other discipline.” In order to live a peaceful life, you must discipline yourself. Stay away from things that are against your values. Live your own life.
