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!

  The Kaizen challenge was invaluable in my life. Even my family is picking the fruits of my work, and now I want to enable them as well to create for themselves what Hannes helped me to create, and what we enticed them with.   In all areas of my life I feel under control, I know for certain where I am going, and I feel that I am making progress. These feelings are, as many would say, “invaluable” and a feeling that money can not buy.   It is one thing to have and... Read more...

What has this Kaizen program meant to me?  When I was a child, I was creative, positive and fearless. It was second nature to imagine something and go for it. But, over time, as a result of "society believes" --- some of these “believes” baseless and passed on through generation Read more...
