WAYS TO ACHIEVE PEACE OF MIND
Several years ago the sociology department of Duke University did a study on "peace of mind." Several factors were found to contribute greatly to emotional and mental stability; they are:
Forgive. Rid yourself of suspicion and resentment. Nursing a grudge was a major factor in unhappiness.
Forget. Live in the present. An unwholesome preoccupation with old mistakes and failures leads to depression.
Accept life. Don't waste time and energy fighting conditions you cannot change. Cooperate with life, instead of trying to run away from it.
Stay involved. Force yourself to stay involved with the living world. Resist the temptation to withdraw and become reclusive during periods of emotional stress.
Roll with the punches. Refuse to indulge in self-pity when life hands you a raw deal. Accept the fact that nobody gets through life without some sorrow and misfortune.
Be old-fashioned. Cultivate the old-fashion virtues -- love, honor, compassion and loyalty.
Be reasonable. Don't expect too much of yourself. When there is too wide a gap between self-expectation and your ability to meet the goals you have set, feelings of inadequacy are inevitable.
Go outside yourself. Find something bigger than yourself to believe in. Self-centered, egotistical people score lowest in any test for measuring happiness.
