Inner Peace This Holiday Season: Is It Possible?

Inner Peace This Holiday Season: Is It Possible?

As November dawns on us, we’re looking at a different kind of holiday season. 

Family gatherings may be cancelled or hosted virtually - yet the stress of food and gift preparations, expectations, and reunions remains. 

Not to mention the anxiety of the global situation that can further pull us away from the peace and joy we crave at the end of each year.


How to dive into your inner world, and find that inner peace


What exactly is inner peace? It’s an internalized state of spiritual and mental stillness. 

Inner peace happens when the noise in your head stops chattering to allow you to see the space between your thoughts.

Peace inside can show on your outside. Your smile, your ability to be calm, the way you navigate in the world. 

No matter what’s going on around you or inside you, inner peace can be found by harnessing simple tools and practices - many of which can be found in nature and ancient wisdom.


Press play for inner peace


Guided meditation is one of the best ways to achieve inner peace.


Just find a quiet moment, relax, and press play on this one we’ve prepared for you - and let the visualization of peaceful ocean waves carry you to a place where the stress and anxiety of the world and your own thoughts cannot touch you:

 

Take time after your meditation with your journal as you reflect with these questions:


  1. Describe your own feeling of peace. 
  2. Are you taking time to do something peaceful for yourself this holiday season? What do you love about that time?
  3. If not, why not? What can you do to give yourself this time to experience more peace then?
