Are you searching for ways to live a more peaceful life? The first step for changing your life is changing your current normal. Think about what is preventing you from being content and happy with your life. Are you being brought down by your situation, other people, or even yourself? To start living a more peaceful life start by practicing love, forgiveness, and openness.

How to practice self love

It is hard to find peace in your life if you cannot learn to love yourself first. It can be hard to see the value and potential in ourselves sometimes but once we understand that we all deserve to be loved your life will start changing for the better. If we can see the best in others we can also see the best in ourselves.

Try viewing yourself as your favorite person or thing in the world and try to treat yourself the same way you would that person or thing. Love yourself the same way you would love your best friend, a baby, or even a puppy.

It may seem silly at first but if you wouldn't say something cruel to a baby then you shouldn't say anything cruel about yourself. Practice the same type of love you would give to others for yourself.

How to start loving others 

By loving more people you invite more love into your own life. It is important to love others for who they are and who they may become. Love your friends, family, and strangers for how complex and unique they are. Each person has their own struggles and weaknesses that they have to overcome, just like yourself.

Every person has their own path to take in life and could use as much love as they can get. By loving and helping others you will feel more love in your life by spreading positivity and joy.

Think about what you wish someone would do for yourself and try to do that for someone else. Life can be as beautiful and peaceful as you make it, for yourself and others.

How to forgive 

It is hard to live peacefully when you are holding on to grudges and resentment. Even if you think that a person doesn't deserve your forgiveness you should still forgive them because you deserve to be free from the burden of resenting them. Being angry with another person will hurt you the most and the only way to improve your own situation is by forgiving them.

You deserve to be happy and removing any hate from your life and mind is a big step. Forgive people for your own sake and see how much lighter and happier you will feel.

Forgiveness can come in many different forms, it doesn't have to be face to face or even with the other person. You can forgive someone and let go of your anger in your own way and time.

How to be more open 

Be open to new opportunities and life changes. The world and the people around us are always changing. To change with the world around you peacefully you have to be open to new things. Don't hold on to the past and how things once were and try to be present in your current situation.

Being present in the moment and open to whatever may happen takes some practice and won't always come easily. Everyone has their own methods of mental preparation for what is to come. Some tips for practicing openness and being present are journaling your thoughts and feelings, talking to a therapist or a friend, meditation, and more.
