Ready to Experience Inner Peace and Wellness?
Everyone knows that the food you consume has a direct effect on your physical health. No wonder that there’s that popular old saying that goes “you are what you eat.” Well, in the same way food affects your physical health, the thoughts you have affect you mental health. Basically, it can also be said that you are what you think, and if you have not noticed, we become what we think about all day long. If you would like to truly experience more inner peace wellness, keep reading to learn six tips that really work.
When you occupy your brain with toxic emotions like stress, anxiety, fear, self-pity, and anger, you will feel hopeless and your quality of life will diminish. However, when you work hard to replace these thoughts with kindness, compassion, gratitude, forgiveness, and acceptance, you will instantly start experiencing a better life. When you have a focused intention with feelings of certainty about your desires, mixed with a sense of infinite patience, your desires happen immediately.
In general, being emotionally well means balance. It is the ability to identify and express emotions appropriately. It is being grounded and able to take care of your emotional needs, and to prioritize self-care. For many, this is a challenge, and is really a life skill that needs to be learned when it was not taught in childhood. If you are like me, you began learning late in life the importance of achieving inner peace wellness. If so, be encouraged, because getting started will be the best decision you can make for yourself.
Men especially have issues with feelings because boys are raised to believe that feelings are not manly and make them sissies. However, in adulthood having the ability to properly cope with feelings and accept them is key in not only having a health relationship with your own self, but also being able to effectively relate with other people.
Of course, doing something like this is not easy, but you can pull it off, and enjoy emotional wellness, by following the 6 key steps outlined below. As one of my mentors Jim Rohn has said, “What is easy to do, is just as easy not to do.” So decide now that your desire for inner peace and wellness is really what your heart is longing for, and you will choose to practice these steps daily.
Taking Control After A Failure
No matter how hard you try to avoid it, you will always experience failure every once in a while. Failing to do something will have an impact on how you view your goals and will make you think that you can’t reach them. This results in a lack of motivation, and ultimately, the feeling of hopelessness.
However, in order to avoid feeling hopeless, you should just acknowledge that you have fallen short and try to figure out why this happened to you in the first place. After you’ve done that, start planning another way to reach your goal. Failing is completely normal and it can make you learn from your mistakes.
Actually, I like to rephrase failures as just “results” that are really just data to be observed, and analyzed. Think of this as a way to process results that are not aligned with your desired outcome, and thereby omitting any guilt …. John C Maxwells path to success sums this up very well – Test, Fail, Learn, Improve, and Re-enter.
Recovering Self-Worth After A Rejection
Being rejected is very painful. People who were rejected a lot during their childhood often grow up to be very shy and have little self-worth. However, know that a rejection is only as painful as you let it be. To quickly recover self-worth after being rejected, simply write a list of valuable attributes that you know you possess and keep the list with you to always remind yourself how much you’re actually worth. This will definitely increase your confidence, which is also very important, as confident people are less likely to be rejected.
Begin to observe what follows the words “I Am” with your thinking and your speech. Many times you may catch yourself saying “I am … (fill in the blank)… and it is not aligned with your desires or your purposes. This will be really helpful to help guide you further along in your journey.
Not getting enough sleep can negatively affect your life in many different ways. It can cause mood swings, stress, irritability, and anger. It will also affect your health habits, ultimately putting the thoughts in your brain to skip workouts and eat unhealthy. For the sake of you mental and physical health, you need to get enough sleep!
This is also going to be super charged when you practice some focused intentional visualization before you drift off to sleep. I myself enjoy a guided meditation for my nighttime practice. Always remember to be grateful!
Asking For Help
It’s okay to ask for help. Dealing with all the challenges you’re facing on your own can be extremely stressful. If you can’t do something by yourself, ask a dear friend, colleague, or a family member for help before the stress becomes impossible to bear. Remember that asking for help doesn’t mean that you’re weak, but that you are strong enough to do whatever it takes to improve your mental health.

Learning To Accept Yourself
The best advice you will ever get when it comes to emotional wellness is learning to be yourself and practice self-acceptance. Oftentimes, the expectations an individual sets for himself or herself are much higher than the expectations other people have for them. Know that you will never experience emotional wellness if you’re constantly talking and thinking negatively about yourself.
Act As If For Best Results
Now that you have these six tips for inner peace and welness, you can begin to really experience results by focused intention that is practiced daily. There is something powerful about acting as if you have your desire already fulfilled. As mentioned at the beginning of this article, “we become what we think about all day long.”
