With the state of the world lately its super easy to get caught up in all the gloom + doom the news gives. So today I’m sharing how I protect my peace during difficult times. I am the type of person that feels other peoples pain as my own. So when I learn of heartbreaking news, its almost like its happening to me + it stays with me a while. Over the years I’ve learned some tricks to help protect my peace while still caring + learning of what is going on in the world, if that makes sense. So here we go. Also these are in no particular order.
✨ TALK TO GOD + SPEND TIME IN THE WORD ✨
This is probably the best way to protect my peace. Praying to God, thanking him for all that he has done for me, given me, always been there for me really helps bring peace to my soul. I also love reading verses from the Bible about God always loving me, being with me, will always get me through whatever trial I’m going with, etc. It is so cool that the lessons in the Bible are still relatable today.
✨ LIMIT DOOM + GLOOM INFORMATION ✨
I try to limit the amount of gloom + doom information as much as I can. I’ll read new article headlines, but the not actually article. I won’t listen or watch the news on TV. I also try to steer any conversations I’m having that are negative to a different, more positive topic.
✨ CREATE A SPACE I FEEL SAFE IN + INSPIRES ME ✨
It was very important that I created my room to be a safe space. One that I feel safe in, inspires me, + makes me happy. I was determined to make it a warm, cozy space with accents of white, gold, wood, pale blush, twinkle lights + of course sparkles. When my peace is being threatened being in my room calms me down + helps me to focus on something good, positive + beautiful.
✨ PUT MY PHONE DOWN + GO FOR A WALK OUTSIDE ✨
Fresh air is amazing! When I’m feeling my peace is gone, going outside, taking deep breathes of fresh air + going for a walk helps so much. Going for a walk gets me out of my head + I can focus on my surroundings, the beauty of nature + I pray a lot during this time. Getting out of my head, thanking God for everything he has done, praying that he helps me feel peace again really helps!
✨ FOCUS ON THINGS THAT SET MY SOUL ON FIRE ✨
Photography, post processing, graphic design, reading, reaching products, looking at pretty pictures on Pinterest. Doing these things makes me feel in control of what I’m focusing on, being able to be creative, learn something helps me to reclaim my peace. Looking at inspiring + pretty pictures on Pinterests helps me to see good into the future in a way.
