Tensions and worries seem to be an essential part of our lives. Besides a strong relationship with God, a three pronged strategy may help us win inner peace:
1. Gratitude Therapy
Let us always keep a track of our blessings. The favours of God on each of us are numerous – in fact limitless. A list of these blessings will easily outnumber the troubles we may be facing. We tend to lose sight of them and take them for granted. So it is recommended that we continue to count our blessings each day.
2. Mission Therapy
Let us set before ourselves a mission in life. If we have an objective in life and go all out towards achieving it, worries and suffering will not bother us as much – simply because we will have little time for them. A person who is focused on a cause is so deeply involved in realizing his mission that worries he may have – but seldom will they get the better of him.
3. Help Out Therapy
Let us start sharing the woes of people around us by reaching out to them and helping them as much as we can in their difficulties and worries. Knowing about the grief of others lessens our own grief. It gives solace to the mind that we are better off than so many. This will make us thankful to God and give us mental peace.
