How to Set Boundaries Unapologetically! Protect Your Peace | MJ Harris


How To Live A Peaceful Life


Do you feel that the ONLY time you find peace is when you're fast asleep? It's like a brief escape from the chaos—away from the bustling streets, the never-ending traffic, and all the other madness that fills your day. You're lucky if that's even a full 8-hour sleep.


So, the other hours without peace can make you stressed out about life and turn you into a fee-dragging zombie going through your day—LIFELESS. But worry not, as this article will tell you four simple steps on how to live a peaceful life:


Step #1: Take Care of Your Physical & Mental Health


Treat your body like it's the only one you've got – because it is. Get moving, whether it's a gym session or just dancing around in your living room. It would also be best to feed yourself the good stuff; burgers are awesome, but veggies are, too. It's all about balance.


And don't forget about your mind – take breaks, meditate, or just chill out. Your mental well-being is as important as hitting the weights.



Step #2: Focus On What You Can Control


Life's full of surprises, but not all of them are worth stressing over. Learn to let go of what you can't change.


For example, traffic – it's out of your hands, but your reaction isn't. Keep your cool and put your energy where it counts – on the stuff you can actually do something about.



"Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it." - Mahatma Gandhi

Step #3: Build Healthy Relationships


Life gets a whole lot better when you've got good people around. And with that thought in mind, aim for connections that run deep.

Build relationships where trust is a given, where you share the same values, and where support goes both ways. In this crazy rollercoaster ride of life, these connections become your rock, adding strength and purpose to every twist and turn.



Step #4: Slow Down and Be Present


Ever feel like life's moving a hundred miles an hour? Have you been catching your breath between appointments, responsibilities, and endless to-do lists?


You need to slow down. Take a breath, feel the wind, smell the flowers – and seriously, put the phone down. The internet will survive without you for a bit, and you will be absolutely fine too.


You should enjoy every sight you see outside a screen, soak in what's happening now, and let the rest of the world wait a bit.



Final Thoughts


It's all about finding balance and making small, intentional choices that lead to a more peaceful and fulfilling life. With our crazy schedules, it's crucial to pause, put self-care first, and foster connections that truly matter – it can make a real difference.
