50 Steps To a More Peaceful Life





Live. Learn. Love. Eat.

  1. Take time to pray and meditate.
  2. Be grateful.
  3. Keep your eyes open.
  4. Hold the hand of a child, feel little arms around your neck.
  5. Listen to the innocent chatter and play of little ones.
  6. Walk in nature.
  7. Let the sun in every day.
  8. Stretch yourself on purpose.
  9. See yourself as separate from your thoughts. You are not your thoughts.
  10. Eat foods from nature, foods that have soaked up the sun and grown in the purity of the earthโ€™s rich, fertile soil.
  11. Sing, dance, play, create. Free yourself in some way every day.
  12. Donโ€™t get stuck in routines and bore yourself.
  13. Allow yourself pleasure and enjoyment in life, guilt-free.
  14. Laugh.
  15. Get in touch with the elements, water, earth, air and fire. Swim, go barefoot, breathe in nature, watch a flame.
  16. Lay down on the earth and stare up at the sky. Watch the clouds float on by.
  17. Watch the sun riseโ€ฆ
