It is a solo journey where each individual has to discover what a simple and peaceful life means to them.

1. Only Prioritise the Things that are Most Important to You
It is so easy to get caught up in our fast-paced lives that we completely neglect the things that are important to us. Life isn’t all about work and deadlines, it isn’t about presenting a certain image on social media. Life is about finding meaning and joy in living it. A simple peaceful life can not just be found, it must be created. So take some time today to examine you life and the things that mean the most to you and make your life better. Then create time for those things and make them a priority.
2. Do Less and Do More
The temptation is to always jam as many activities into your to-do list as you possibly can. Modern society has convinced itself that this is the only way to live a stable and productive life. Unfortunately, this is not the case at all. Most of us only end up unhappy, exhausted, and unmotivated in life. What matters the most isn’t the quantity rather it is the quality of the work that you do. Take conscious note of this and try to do a little less each day; that way you can find more peaceful fulfillment in your life.
3. Live in the Moment
We often find ourselves either reflecting on the past or planning for the future, often dismissing whatever is happening in the present. If you really think about the present only exists in a fleeting moment before it is relegated to the past. This makes it incredibly precious. One great way to make sure you living in and appreciating the present moment is to keep a gratitude journal. Take little notes of things that you are grateful for during the day. This will help you stay positive during the day and will also provide you with pleasant and peaceful things to think about at the end of the day.
4. take a Break from Social Media
You’ve heard it all before but you are what you consume. If you find yourself constantly being in a restless and foul mood then it is definitely time to inspect the kind of media that you are consuming. Social media is a wonderful servant but a cruel master and it can easily consume your life and your happiness. The thing about social media is it is not a necessity. You do not need it to live. So for the sake of living life in peace try to take a break from social media every now and then. It will not only simplify and declutter your life, but it will also help you find peace of mind.
Remember that you are the only one who can give your life true meaning and peace. Do not take for granted the fact that you are fully in control of life. That simple and peaceful life is out there waiting for you to grab so stop wasting your time and start living your best life.
In conclusion, to every place a time. Learning to take the time that we need to tend to ourselves is important. We all need a place of peace so our lives are simplified. Find it and go there. It’ll come in handy.
