Is it possible to change your life by simply calming your mind? 

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night with frantic thoughts about all you need to get done the next day?

Are you ever unsure about where to start because you have so much to do and no time to get it done?

Everyone has these feelings, often called “monkey chatter brain”,  from time to time. The good news is that you can learn to calm your mind.

A calm mind is a more attentive and proactive mind. By learning to remove anxious thoughts, you’ll enjoy your life far more than you already do!

How to Achieve Peace Within

When your mind won’t stop racing, you’re usually hard-pressed to find inner peace.

The more your mind races, the more anxious and frustrated you may become.

This usually results in unproductive days, weeks, and even months.

You don’t have to continue to live this way. There are many ways to calm your overactive mind.

You really can learn how to live a more calm and peaceful life.

If your mind starts running a million miles a minute and you’re not sure which way to turn next, try to pause and repeat a positive affirmation.

When things seem as if they are getting out of hand, you can use an affirmation such as:

“I trust my ability to relax. I am calm and peaceful.”

Although this may not be the case at the moment, if you repeat this constantly you will start to believe it.

This will help you change your inner dialogue in those moments when you’re tempted to succumb to the craziness surrounding you.

Positive affirmations are important because they give you permission to turn off the negative dialogue in your mind and replace it with positive thoughts.

The negative dialogue feeds the feelings of turmoil.

When you replace the negative thoughts with peaceful affirmations, you change your life, one positive statement at a time.

If you have a hard time believing that this strategy will work for you, give it a try with an open heart and mind.

It really does work!  In no time at all, you’ll feel more peaceful and reap the benefits in every area of your life.

Many of us feel like we can’t do anything about the crazy lives we lead and the inner discontent we feel.

I can assure you that this is not true!

When you use positive affirmations, you can reprogram your brain so that there is only room for positive thoughts.

You’ll be surprised to find how quickly a positive affirmation such as, “I trust that there is a plan for my life, even if it has yet to be revealed to me” can work for you.

Another way to calm your mind quickly is with meditation.

I’ve shared my 7 favorite meditation tips; what are your favorites?

If you feel like your life has gotten off course and you don’t think it’s possible to lead a calm life, why not give a peaceful affirmation a chance?

If you repeat affirmations often enough, you’ll soon begin to believe them, and you’ll turn a simple, positive statement into your reality.

So what do you think? What affirmation can you start using (or do you use) in your daily life?

    It’s almost like this post was written just for me! I don’t know why I need to keep being reminded over and over that a calm mind is so important but… Thanks for taking on the task today! I loved the way you said ‘change your inner dialogue in those moments when you’re tempted to succumb’. That is perfect. Because when we let the negative thoughts consume us, we are marching right into that lion’s jaws and letting him do his thing. Changing our thoughts is completely within our power and I am going to get back to repeating peaceful affirmations this week. Thanks for the encouragement.

      You’re so right Allegra! It’s hard to remember to do, but creating a new “go to calm” habit changes your life in so many ways. Thanks for chiming in … and let me know how it works out for you!
