16 Nov 2017 12:03 PM | Heather Kaye (Administrator)

The holidays are approaching so let’s turn our focus to practice. How will you retain your peace of mind through the year? The nonprofit world can be challenging. We know peace of mind is a choice—a consciousness. Our thinking is vital. Insultate yourself from negativity and stay in the present moment

Learning to choose peace of mind requires that we acquire new healthy habits and that we question our thoughts that most often are an illusion or distorted memories.The Journey to Leadership

To maintain sanity in challenging situations and to create immediate peace of mind:

  • Concentrate on being in the moment. Focus on the conversation, on your senses and surroundings.
  • Be aware of your reactions and observe the emotions that you go through.
  • Search for the best reactions and answers to a situation.
  • In the long haul, drop negative memories in order to let go of the past and to be your best self.
  • Stop all activity. Take a time out and breathe them return to work.
  • Look at the situation from different perspectives and learn something new about yourself and others. Experience life in an unlimited fashion.
  • Take regular breaks at work to keep your mind and body relaxed and to prevent burnouts.
  • Break the cycle of bad behavior.
  • Actively listen to others instead of thinking about your unaccomplishd goals, of judging others and yourself.
  • Smile. Smiling changes the chemistry of the body and creates an illusion that everything is fine.
  • Listen to soothing sounds and music.
  • Take a walk before responding yo a stressful situation.
  • Take a nap to refresh and clear your mind.

You are worth it. We get one life—make it a peaceful one.
