Top Ten Ways to Find Peace at Home

In an ideal world, our home is a place of peace away from the hectic outside world. Unfortunately, ideal worlds don't exist!

In order to make your home a sanctuary, you have to put in a little effort, but thankfully, it's easier than you think.
Here are ten ways you can find peace in your home:
1.    Clear the Clutter. Many people never feel at ease when they're at home because their home is disorganized. Of course, a cluttered environment leads to a cluttered mind, and a cluttered mind is a chaotic one. If you take one weekend to clear the clutter from your home, you'll feel an immediate difference in your peace level.
2.    Find a Hobby. Sometimes it's boredom that gets the best of us when we're at home. When you have a hobby to turn to, you'll find that it's a lot easier to feel peaceful and fulfilled.
3.    Turn on the music. Listening to calming music will allow you to let go of the stress of the day and enjoy your time at home. Choose whatever kind of music you like, as long as it relaxes you.
4.    Leave your work at work. If your home is an office away from the office, how can you ever find peace? Except for the rare occasion, leave your work at work, both physically and mentally. If you work from home, work in one dedicated space. Also, never work in the same room as you sleep, otherwise, you'll associate your bedroom as a workspace.
5.    Create time to decompress. Do you rush home from work and immediately take on more responsibilities and chores? Instead, allow yourself even 10 or 15 minutes to relax and unwind before you begin tasks for the home. Doing so will mark a clear separation in your mind between work and home.
  • You might want to just lie on your bed for a few minutes, read a book, or take a shower. This short time will rejuvenate and refresh you.
6.    Be considerate. Be mindful of your family and their daily stresses as well. Too often, we take their presence and contributions for granted. Remember that the people you live with are human, too. Show your gratitude for them.
7.    Use positive reinforcement. When someone in your family does something to contribute to the peace, be sure to praise them to let them know you appreciate what they did. This will help foster more peace in the future!
8.    Pick your battles. You could fight a lot about little, insignificant things, but is it worth it? Instead, choose only the most important transgressions to challenge.
9.    Allow things to roll off your back. When something isn't a big deal, just let it go. Instead, focus on maintaining your inner peace. You'll be glad in the long run that you decided to go this route; it makes life so much easier!
10. Cool off. When you're involved in a conflict at home, give yourself some time to cool off. Doing so will help you calmly talk about your feelings and come to a resolution. Or perhaps you just may realize that the issue wasn't as big of a deal as you first thought.
Maintaining peace in your home is important to the health and well being of every family member. Use these tips to nurture a peaceful environment so your home is a joy to come home to!

Wealth Insight 2009-07-31 Split second decision making I’ve been studying how we make decisions. Sometimes we take a long time to decide and then make a mistake anyway. Other times we decide in a flash and we are right. Does it matter? Very much so! If spending more time on a decision doesn’t guarantee success, then what should we do? Let me give you two examples. Example 1: A panel of art experts spends months deciding to buy a $10 million work of art. They take samples, they... Read more...

First of all, I would like to thank you for the opportunity that you have created for me to improve my life. Looking back now it is really difficult for me to think of the person that I was 50 days ago, compared to the way that I think now. Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-12-25 Running On Faith   This newsletter goes out on Christmas day. This is a day when Christians are reminded of their faith. So today I am going to be talking a bit about faith.   But it’s another kind of faith I’m thinking of right now. A kind of faith that has kept the material world as we know it going for nearly 40 years.   A kind of faith that gives me faith in the power of faith itself!   In 1971 Nixon unpegged the dollar from gold.... Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-09-25 Instinct or indoctrination? We taste a new dish. We like it or dislike it. We call it being individual. A matter of personal taste. We meet someone new. We instantly trust or mistrust them. We call it instinct. Gut feel. Intuition. We encounter a new idea. We instantly trust or mistrust it. Instinct, again. Gut feel. Intuition. Are we right or are we wrong? Mostly it doesn’t matter. If your job is not about food, then who cares? If you’ll never see the... Read more...

My established thoughts have been challenged to look at other possibilities in a way that at times provoked conflict but at the same time it was thoroughly enlightening. Each day’s lesson was eagerly read and thought over with the application of small goals which in itself was a change of the usual habit following routine. Although not a religious course, a challenge to my thinking of religious matters came about many times and I think a whole lot of understanding and simplification... Read more...
