Vacations became something we plan after retirement. The worst part is not everything mentioned above is a choice. We are stressed, confused, worried and anxious. With more development of technology and automation of 90% of workforce, we are more worried now than before. We don’t know weather economy will hold for next 15/20 years

Learning how to create inner peace can be a goal of your self-improvement plan. You will benefit from having this talent all through your life. You will maintain your composure under pressure and in situations that require your instant attention.

Keeping your life uncomplicated will help you find inner peace because it will focus all of your energy on a single aspect of your life. Get rid of everything in your life that is holding you back. This includes both friends and acquaintances who take advantage of your resources without providing anything in return. Always keep quality over quantity in mind.

2. Be in the Present
The only time that truly exists, and therefore the only time that matters, is the present moment we are living in right now. The past is over, the present is happening right now, and the future will become the present at some point. You have no influence over the future, and you also have no ability to forecast it. Concentrate instead on the one thing you can influence, which is the here and now. Give it your all and continue living.
3. Express Your Gratitude
Take a moment to reflect on how fortunate you are, and thank God for it. Your thoughts have a propensity to wander, and you might find yourself wishing for something different. However, keep in mind that more than 80 percent of the world’s population survives on less than ten dollars per day. Where do you fall within this, exactly? There is a good chance that when compared to others, you are living like a king. Your own thoughts can be your worst enemy. Keep in mind that even if you achieve what you want, you won’t be satisfied for long because you’ll soon want something else. Be thankful for the things you already possess.
4. Try on Someone Else’s Point of View
There are other points of view besides your own. Don’t act as if it’s a rule of the road. Prepare yourself to move on from it. Don’t get into an argument over your viewpoint because the truth is that it’s nothing more than your opinion in any case. Be gracious and admit that you were in the wrong if you discover that you are in the wrong.
5. This too Shall Pass
Everything that happens will eventually end. Time is both kind and indifferent to its passing. What appears to be gloomy today might shine with glory tomorrow. Everything and everyone will be destroyed in the end. Absolutely nothing lasts forever. The most severe wounds can be healed by the passage of time. Since whatever is happening right now won’t last forever, sometimes the best thing to do is just to let go of your concerns and move on. The day after tomorrow is a new day, a new beginning.
Simply putting on a happy face can do wonders for your own spirit as well as the spirits of those around you. It has the ability to change people’s attitudes and hearts. The emotion of love is related to smiling. It is impossible to smile while harbouring negative emotions such as anger or jealousy. When you smile, you immediately feel more at ease, happy, and loved.
Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should beWayne Dyer
