Tips to inner peace

Have you ever felt like everyone around you was self-centered or self-absorbed? Most people put themselves before all else. Buddhism, however, sees such egotism as a source of misery.

The ego causes a lot of problems and conflict with personal identity. To sort this out, Buddhism distinguishes between two “I”s: the natural, instinctive “I” we use when we say “I’m hungry” and the conceptual “I” we imagine but that doesn’t actually exist.

Creative Ways to inner peace

In developed countries, about three-quarters of people claim to be satisfied with their quality of life. And yet, levels of unhappiness remain high. Why is this?

The answer has to do with the way people understand what happiness is. A lot of people think happiness is just a momentary respite from suffering. They might feel happy on the weekend because they don’t have to work, for example.

The Subtle Art Of Happiness

In fact, one study found that even winning the lottery doesn’t change a person’s happiness that much. It causes a temporary spike in happiness but does nothing to prevent that happiness from falling back to former levels.

Chasing immediate, pleasurable desires ultimately leads to disappointment. And we only focus on external pleasures because we’re too scared to turn our attention toward the place where it really counts: our inner world.

Tactics To happiness

A pleasurable experience can quickly become neutral or unpleasant because pleasure is so unstable and fleeting. A good meal, for example, is enjoyable up to a certain point; if you eat to excess, however, you’ll get sick.

Long-lasting happiness shouldn’t be confused with pleasure. A lot of people assume that fame or wealth would bring them all they desire, but such things offer only short-term satisfaction and won’t have much influence on your well-being.

Tricks To Get More Eyeballs On Your Happiness

Before you can achieve true happiness, you have to understand what it is – and then pinpoint those things that encourage it. But many people start down the wrong path, confusing happiness with other enjoyable emotions, like pleasure.

Pleasure might seem like the fastest and easiest road to happiness, but, sooner or later, you’ll come to a dead end. Pleasure is momentary by nature: it occurs under certain circumstances at a certain time.

Best Tip Ever: Happiness

A person might get excited about buying a new car, for example, only to have that joy squashed when a newer model comes out. That’s what happens when you seek happiness in the outside, instead of focusing on your inner being.

It’s useless to cling to temporary things like cars. Accepting that is the first step toward finding inner peace and true serenity. True happiness comes from reaching such a high state of inner well-being that you’re no longer broken by failure or blown full of false pride by success.

Most Effective Tactics To Happiness

Consider love, for example. There’s no way to ensure that your lover will always love you back. So if your happiness depends on that, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment and heartbreak.

People often think they have everything they need to be happy – and yet still feel unhappy. Psychologists Philip Brickman and Dan Campbell call this the hedonic treadmill. It’s as if we’re running on a treadmill, sweating and straining, but never advancing an inch. We eagerly pursue the new and the exciting, but our level of happiness doesn’t rise.

Rules For inner peace

You can’t buy happiness. In fact, external factors in general have a limited impact on happiness. Wealth and social status do have some effect on your happiness, but they only account for about 10 to 15 percent of it.

Happiness would be out of reach if it was purely an external phenomenon. After all, our desires know no limits; the amount of control we have over the world, in contrast, is very limited.

Commandments Of Happiness

Happiness is something that can be cultivated, but you do have work at it. Studies have shown that about 25 percent of our potential for happiness is defined by our genes – but that means 75 percent is up to us!

So you have a lot of power over your happiness. The way you think, live and perceive the world around you has a major impact on your mental well-being.

Key Benefits Of happiness

That means cultivating a mental state unburdened by memories and future plans. The only thing that matters is what’s happening now: the present. So the key to leading a happy and fulfilling life is being at peace with the present.

This approach to happiness mirrors Buddhist thought, which holds that one can attain a state of profound and sustained well-being when freed of negative emotions. Buddhists denote this state with a Sanskrit word: sukha.

Wonderful narrations and set of meditations

I see myself using this regularly. If you haven't meditated in a while and need a way to get back into it, I think this is a quick way to dip the feet in the water, and start getting them wet again! Eases you in effortlessly and so many meditations to choose from- there's no excuse not to make it a daily practice.

The Dos And Don’ts Of happiness

Include minute gratitude vacations in your schedule. Stop throughout the day to smell the roses, to take a walk, to gaze at the sky whether sunshine or clouds.
Whenever you find yourself pounding a table asking: “Why? Why? Why? did I say ‘Yes’ when I really meant ‘No'?” write it down. Keep a list and post it next to your phone, on your fridge, or on your bathroom mirror!
Learn to like the sound of “No," while you practice saying, “I really need to get back to you,” when pressed for an answer. Take a few precious moments to think about what you really want to be doing and respond in a way that honestly reflects your feelings.
