How do you find peace when stress attacks? Personally, I find it a challenge to automatically resort to peace in stressful situations. It is something that I have to work on. I’m the type of person that feels like if I don’t worry about a problem then I’m not addressing the problem. It’s not true, in fact if we relax in stressful situations we will be able to make calm, well thought out decisions. At the same time passion is often driven from intense feelings. Aren’t those the same strong feelings that stem from getting wound up from an event, issue, or “problem”?
Perhaps it all goes back to finding balance. Intense feelings can be a good thing. They can drive and inspire us. Maybe it is learning how to steer the feelings that makes the difference between passion and rage. Bad stress can bring about things like sleep disturbances and health problems. Good stress can drive us toward our goals and fire our imagination.
Finding peace in bad stressful situations is important so you don’t drain the good juices away. Deep breathing, journaling, listening to music are a few ways to find peace. Tranquility Is Yours has some suggestions too. What are the ways that you find inner peace? -pm
