How To Achieve Peace In Your Life

179 PeaceWe often hear the statement “life is unfair”, “life is full of challenges”, “and life is never easy and never will be”. I would agree to those because it is stating a fact about life. Living a peaceful live is one thing that many people want to achieve. Many people would sacrifice, pay, or trade just to achieve peace in their life. But having a peaceful life is earned and it depends on the person how he or she is living his or her life. It is also a fact that it is not impossible to achieve a peaceful life. There are actually many ways that people could do or develop for them to achieve peace in their life. I am sure that you are excited to know what they are.

 

Be Organize

First, you need to learn how to be organized. When I say organize, I’m referring generally. Many of us live in a chaotic life simply because we do not know how to organize ourselves. Some of us do not even know what we want in life. We just live each day thinking what we are going to do. We do not have any plans or goals. So, start to develop the habit of making plans and setting goals. You can do a daily plan, weekly plans, monthly and yearly plans. If you have plans, you will know what to do to achieve them. Do not be scared to fail because failing would teach you a good lesson in life.

 

Learn How To Deal With Your Problems

Two, you need to learn how to deal with your problems. All of us have problems. Whether you have small or big problem it doesn’t matter because what matters is how you handle the problem. One piece of advice, deal with your problem positively and you will find the solution.

 

Avoid Friends/People That Cause Problems

Next, try to avoid friend or people who are causing your problems. I know that you have friends who love to borrow money but they are really pain in the neck when it comes to payment.

 

Be Successful

Another one is be successful in your life. I do not care what field you want to succeed, if you are successful, you will be happy. If you are successful you will have the power to do things that you like and no one would ever stop you from doing them.

 

Count Your Blessings

Last but not the least, do not forget to sit and count your blessings. Whether is it material things, health, of achievements, it will always give happy thoughts and feelings once you know that you are blessed.

Those are only five of the many factors that could help you achieve peace in life. But I know that they are enough to make you live peacefully.

How To Find Peace Through Health And Wellness

082 Peace through Health and wellnessOne of the most challenging things that we can achieve in our life is peace. Not all of us can find peace in our life especially those busy people. That’s why finding peace either peace of mind or inner-peace needs to be workout. Did you know that you can actually find peace in health and wellness? I know that you are wondering how you can find peace through health and wellness. Simple, we all know that there are health managements that promote peace of mind and inner-peace. I’m sure you have heard of yoga exercise and massage. Yoga exercise promotes relaxation and peace in the body both your mind and your spirit. It also promotes health and wellness. After doing yoga, you can also enhance the process with a very relaxing body massage. Have you ever tried doing a whole body massage? If you haven’t tried it yet, now is the time to try it and you will see how it will help you achieve peace in your life. In just short period of time, you will be able to find peace.

But, another way to find peace in our life is to have that balance in our life. Make sure that everything is balance by simply putting things in order. Most of the time, we only get stress because of the things that didn’t went exactly the way we planned it like unpaid bills, financial matters, unhealthy friends, family issues, work demands, and children when they reach the adolescence stage. These are the most common factors that cause us stress and problems. But once you have everything under control, these factors are not a stressor. These are the things that we need each day. We need to deal with this in a positive way. Like for example if you are suffering from financial problem, the solution to that is to look for extra income. You can either start a small business or look for an additional part-time job or you can look for a better paying job.

Peace of mind for me is one of the hardest things to achieve because this means that you need to free your mind from any stressors and if you live in a place where you are surrounded with stressors, it will be a struggle for you to achieve peace of mind. If you are always stressed, this will affect your health and wellness. So, you need to be sure that you know how to manage your stress.

Promoting Peace And Security Through Local Peace Actions

027 local peace actionsOur history is filled with rich, vivid descriptions of wars, conflicts and battles. It was during these chaotic times when millions of people have lost their lives, properties, and loved ones. The destruction brought by these man-made activities took decades and even, centuries before everything that was lost was put back into restoration. But of course, none of these human efforts can ever bring back the lives of those people that were lost because of these armed conflicts. There is no doubt about the fact how our history teachers in our high school and classes remind us of the gloomy stories behind the 2nd World War in which more than 60 million people perished while an estimated number of 37 million, on the other hand, did during the 1st World War.

It is through the recounting of these stories that we are reminded of the importance of maintaining peace and security in our nation. There are a lot of things already happening from different parts of the world. Conflicts happen from here and there while other countries experience disasters and calamities. We must open our eyes and see that the government cannot do it alone. Achieving peace can be done through a collective effort of different communities across states and regions. If you only give yourself a chance to be active in supporting this cause, you can see that supporting peace can start at the heart of your very own locality. In fact, the first crucial step begins through the enforcement and application of local peace actions.

So, what are local peace actions? These are measures and mechanisms being employed by various local government and non-government organizations that aim to promote peace. These programs may differ depending on the state’s underlying principles and mores. If you are interested in joining one of these groups, feel free to search them on the Internet to see their upcoming activities, schedules, objectives and missions and also, possible means on how you can support them. Don’t think about the magnitude of the help that you can give. Remember that every small contribution matters. It is because if you’re going to collect each and every small contribution of the people in your community, they can produce a big, substantial effect in promoting peace. It is by believing in your capabilities that you can truly make a difference. Be a part of something that can also inspire others to do the same. Live a legacy advocating for peace.

Finding That Peace Within You

176 Peace within your bodyHave you ever experienced doing meditation or yoga? Yoga has been very popular for decades and the first people who have practice this method are the monks. Monks use meditation techniques to find inner peace and also to communicate with their Deity. They also believed that meditation can promote relaxation which good for the body. Other factors may include health benefits and peace of mind. So, if you want to find that peace within your body, I would recommend that you learn how to do yoga or meditation.

Yoga technique has increased their popularization these past few years because of the health benefits that it gives. They say that yoga can treat and cure different types of illnesses. In fact, yoga or mediation is being advised by doctors to their patients for a faster healing process. Yoga promotes improvement of health and well-being. It also improves the general health status of an individual. But above all, yoga is the best antidote for stress. Stress can be very dangerous if it’s not managed and treated. If you are exposed to a stressful environment and you don’t know how to manage it, you will end up developing serious illnesses in the future like cancer, depression, and even heart problems. So, learn how to manage your stress with the help of yoga techniques.

If you are beginner, this will be very hard at first especially with your focus and concentration but once you get the hang of it, you will be able to find your center point without any hassle. Your center point they say is also your inner peace. Finding inner peace is hard without proper knowledge and practice. So, if you want to learn, I would say that you learn from the expert, enroll to a yoga class. Because of its popularity, it’s not that hard anymore to find a yoga class because they are everywhere. Every year, there are new tricks and movement that is being introduced in yoga that they say could help you become relax, healthy and fit.

There are different types of yoga. The yoga nowadays is way different from the yoga that we see on TV or the yoga that we know of, where you do the Indian sit, close eye and relax. This is the original method and it is imposed to a yoga class but nowadays, yoga involves stretching, aerial movement with the help of cloth attached to the ceiling, and balancing.

Peace For A Better Community And Environment

053 Taking action to make peaceWe encounter different people in our everyday lives and most of these people would have the tendency to have a bad impression of ourselves and it might end up to something that we do not like to happen. Even if we wanted to make friends and to have a conversation with them, they tend to be unpleased for certain reasons. Even with your old friends, there are some personal issues that make them create some distance between the both of you. Well, this can be generalized and applied to the different aspects of human life, whether at home, at work, at school or even in countries. And the only way to create smiles on each faces is to first create some peace to avoid war, misunderstandings, quarrels, fights or any negative outcomes in our life.

The first step in reaching that peace is to have peace in our personal life or rather in our own personal feelings. If you have grudge or something inside of you that holds you back to be happy, then it might affect the environment around you. This is called inner peace. You have to gain inner peace to show the people in your surroundings that peace is a good thing to have. Of course it is necessary to have peace with your family. No matter what happens, your family will be the one who will stand behind you and guide you through rough times and bad times and if you can show that you are peaceful enough to yourself and to your family, then peace can certainly be present everywhere.

There are no ingredients in making peace but it depends on yourself whether you want to gain it or own that peace. Everyone should be taking action to make peace so the next thing you have to do is to communicate with the people around you and let them feel the experience you have if you have inner peace. It is the act of sharing. Whether there are some traits in some people that you might not like, they do not live to please you so you have to accept it and just live with peace. In places such as work and school, you cannot avoid to encounter persons who are not willing to be in the list of your friends so if you want to make peace with them do not expect anything in return rather show them that you can and you are a person who is taking action to make peace.

Creating A Peaceful Environment In Your Home

All of us are looking forward to a peaceful environment and most of the time it’s hard to find peace especially in our home. However, it’s not that possible to create a peaceful environment in your home. There are actually effective ways on how to create a peaceful environment. You just need to find what they are and sometimes conflicts are consequences of our actions. So, if you want to have a peaceful home, here are the tips that I would give to you.

049 Creating a Peaceful environment

Discipline Your Children

Most children could be out of control, restless, and naughty, but raising a good child will always depend on the how their parents discipline them. You need to set some house rules and make sure that those rules are implemented. But here is the catch; most parents would implement these rules with harshness, which could result to develop fear in their children. So tendency, their children would start to develop a rebellion traits, they are just following the rules because they fear you not because they respect you as their parents, or they would trust their friends than you. Instead of doing this, do it the other way around. Talk to your children, communicate with them, explain to them why you have rules and rules are there because you care for them and you love them not because you just want to restrict them on the things they want to do. By this you will be able to win the trust of your children and peace would be in that home because everybody cooperates.

 

Avoid Actions That Can Lead To Conflicts

Most of the time arguments and conflicts are just results of our actions. If you think that your actions could just lead to conflict, try to flee from the environment. Take time to cool things down and if every is okay and if you are both ready to talk, sit down and talk things over. And when you talk, don’t start it with blaming whose fault it is or pointing fingers, instead, recognize your faults and say sorry. If you have something to explain, try to explain it in low tone of voice. If this is the system in your home, I promise you that your home will be heaven instead of hell.

These are just two very simple actions but most of us are having hard time doing these. But I know for sure that this methods works and it will for you too.

Being A Peacemaker Is Not Easy

What does it mean to be a peacemaker? Have you ever tried to be a peacemaker once in your life like at home, school, office, and other places? I’ve read one article of a girl named “Malala” and her stand and definition of peace she said and I quote: “Peace is the promotion of non-violence. She also stated that it is also the promotion of human rights and the support of justice, when we see injustice.” She also said that “human rights are freedoms of human beings to be free of harm, violence, and oppression, as well as, having access to human basic needs like health services and education.” I do agree and believe she said, however, being a peacemaker may not be that easy. One needs to practice it and learn how to control the situation or one’s emotion. To be a peacemaker also means that you care for those people who are fighting or in argument. Promoting peace is not easy because the result may not be the way you expect it, sometimes it may turn the other way around.

023 Being a Peacemaker

But where can you start practicing to be peacemaker? In my opinion, the best place to start of being a peacemaker is in your own home. There will be circumstances that family members may have a little argument or misunderstanding towards each other that could cause conflicts to your family, which will not benefit anyone. If you are put in this situation, this can be the perfect time to be a peacemaker. You can talk to both parties and tell them to stop fighting and forgive each other. You can also tell them that they can talk things in a calm and peaceful way and come up with a solution. They need to stop blaming whose it is because it will not solve the problem, instead it will just make it worse.

But being a peacemaker doesn’t only work to other people, it also means you yourself do not engage or provoke an argument or fight. Like for example if you are mad with somebody, instead of nurturing that emotion, why don’t you think of something positive that could end the misunderstanding between the two of you? Try to talk to the person and settle things with him. Being a peacemaker is simply promoting happiness. If there is not fight or any form of violence, peace will be serve and that could result to positive result. Could you imagine if everybody is friends with everybody and they all cooperate and work together?

How Will You Join The Peace Corps?

092 Peace CorpsAre you looking forward to be part of the Peace Corps? What are your plans after graduation? Do you want to be a part of the Peace organization? Not all would like to be part of the peace team. Why? They don’t believe they can’t make it especially if they lack training. When joining, you have to think many times. You have to see what future waits for you. If you want to be one, you need to know in what way you’ll be accepted. The Peace Corps is not just an ordinary organization wherein you can withdraw anytime or perform violations. It is an organization of professionals who are willing to undergo trainings and sacrifice for a cause. But, what are the things that you need to do to qualify in the corps? What it takes to become a good volunteer worker?

Somebody is still accepted to the corps even without a degree but it is for your advantage if you have earned college. You’ve got more experience. You are more knowledgeable. You might even be given the chance to be in much higher position. If you have both the skills and knowledge then you might be highly desired by the group.

Do research about the corps if you think that it is really your calling. Be sure you have the reasons upon entering. Practical reasons are different from personal reasons. Weigh both sides. if you are not yet ready then you won’t make it to the application. The job is more of giving service than receiving. Thus, search for places wherein you can volunteer. Everything starts from volunteering.

What if you apply for the Peace Corps online? You can if you have access. The process takes a long time. Feel like you are applying for a full-time or part-time job. Place personal information correctly. Have people for your reference. Make an excellent resume and include all your experiences particularly those related to your application. You will be asked about your medical history. Fill it out.

Prepare for the placement after receiving a confirmation from the placement officer. Accept whatever it is. You will know everything about the job before you started. You will be assigned on the same place or somewhere else depending on the vacancies. Your application might fall in any of the following: education, agriculture, health, business & information, etc. It doesn’t matter where you will be assigned. Just think of the job.

What To Do If You Want Inner Peace?

182 PeaceDo you want long-lasting peace? How will you keep your life in order? Life is different if everything is in harmony. You feel like it’s lighter to face any obstacles that may come your way. You feel like nothing can stop you from reaching your dreams or fulfilling your priorities. But, there are few things that will take away that stillness in you such as family issues, work demands, financial crisis, unhealthy friends, etc. If you were surrounded by negative influences then you won’t feel and look calm. Here are a few tips to make sure that peace resides.

 

Be More Patient

This thing develops over time. Do not get easily mad. Learn how to wait. Everything will fall in time. Disappointments are part of life. If you never get disappointed, how will you learn to be patient? Lose of patience affects your inner peace. If you are not being patient then you cannot endure pain, sufferings and challenges in life. If you haven’t get the promotion you really expect, just wait. There are reasons why. It might be that somebody deserves the promotion than you. Yours will come in time.

 

Keep On Smiling

A simple smile can be so powerful. It hides the pain. It lightens your feeling. Smile despite the many problems you encounter. Anyway, frowning won’t give you the answers you need. Do not look sad and worried most of the time. Live each day as if it’s your last. Spend time doing the things you love. You know how to satisfy your desire. So, just smile and remain positive.

 

Never Rush

Keep everything plain and simple. Do complicate them. Avoid doing things altogether. In short, do one thing at a time because doing everything at once can cause problems. Think that there’s no rush. Mind only of what is at hand. Forget about the past and do not worry much about the future. Free your mind from all negatives. If you are always in a hurry, you won’t experience the best of life. Instead, savor every moment be it a defeat or triumph because you’ll learn.

See? It’s easy to be worry free and at peace. Avoid the negatives – negative experiences, negative people, negative views, negative events, and more. If you have a more serious problem, consult a professional therapist. Find a reputable one. If not, be with people you know won’t leave you. Talk to those you trust about anything that bothers you.

How To Find Inner Peace

It’s really hard to find peace in the kind of lifestyle that people have today. The demands of life are increasing especially when crisis strikes and recession. Many people are really having a hard time dealing with their lives. They work really hard to survive all the struggles they have in life, and because of this problem, the risk of getting stressed out is increasing. When people are over exposed to stress, they become at risk to develop serious sickness. There health is at risk and that can affect their daily living like their work. That’s why it’s really hard to find peace if this is your way of life. But health experts suggest that you can still make a change if you want to have that peace in you. All you need to do is to know how to properly and effectively manage your time and life. This might be challenging at first but once you have adopted the system, you will be thankful of the results.

 

Look For Peaceful Place

One of the things that you can do to find that peace is to look for a peaceful place. It could be inside your home or outside. If you think that you can’t get any peace inside your home then go somewhere else. Try to find a place where you can have peace. You can go out of town like in a beach where you can smell the breeze and breathe fresh air. The breeze and the sound of the breeze promote a peaceful feeling. Also, if you stare at the beach looking at waves and the sunset, you will be able to have that comforting feeling within you. But, if you don’t want to go anywhere, you can simply stay in your home and go to the area where there is little disturbance around. You can go in your garden, beside the pool, or in your patio.

 

Learn To Meditate

Another thing that can help you find peace is to learn how to meditate. Meditation promotes peace. It also promotes healing if you are sick. They say that meditation can help you become healthy because if your mind and body is relaxed it can function very well. So, you can actually attend some meditation class or seminar so you can learn how meditation is done. These are not just closing your eyes and do nothing. It actually teaches you how to find your inner peace. Once you have learned the techniques of meditation, you can practice it as often as you can to manage your stressful life.

 

Think About Positive Things

Try to think about positive things, things than can put smile on your face or can make you laugh. Positive thoughts also promote positive feelings and actions. If you accomplish something it makes you happy and gives you that peaceful feeling. So, try to avoid entertaining negative thoughts. Throw it in the trash can. Negative thoughts can just add to your stress and can complicate things.

 

Avoid Any Distraction

One more is to avoid any distraction if you are looking for peace. For example, turn-off your cell phone, beeper, and other gadgets that can disturb your rest. Avoid phone calls for a moment. Flee from your stressors. If you want, you can simply listen to soft and calm music to help you get that peaceful feeling.

 

Close Your Eyes & Relax

The very common and easiest of all is to simply close your eyes and relax. Try to free your minds with any destruction. This may not be easy but you also need to learn the techniques which you can learn from doing meditation. But closing your eyes helps you avoid seeing something that can distract you and can trigger stress.

There are so many ways to find peace aside from what was mentioned above. Whatever techniques you have, stick to that as long as it helps you have that peace in you.

Why We Need To Work For Peace: A Golden Question

In a world where everybody seem to care less about others and solely care about themselves is it every possible to realize why we need to work for peace. Now, what you need to understand is that peace for all nations of the world is something attainable. It may seem to be overwhelming but what you need to understand is the fact that with your real intent and pure heart this very thing is very possible. As a matter of fact, this is probably every one’s dream. It is something that every single person wants to achieve. Yet, the truth is this is a powerful word yet very humble phrase that most people neglect nowadays; seems like every person often wishes for this but never take some time to do something about it.

If you try to look around you, all you can see is violence and crime. Over the years, there have been increases on the number of cases of murders and massacres. This is the very reason why people experience discrimination and poverty. As we speak of today, there are still on going increase on the number of victims of violence and other crimes. Perhaps, peace is indeed something that you need to work for every single day. This also shows that people are not sincere with our oath to give peace to every one. They pronounce the campaign and ideas, but they seem to have such difficulty putting it in action. That is why you need to still work and assess your life to totally experience this moment of happiness for a lifetime. This is something that you need to work for and just make an oath upon.

In addition, the experience you may get from this very moment is something that you will carry on for the rest of your life. It can surely give a lasting effect that will surely cherish for as long as you are alive. This is true even if your place is suffering from hostility and transgression. Your personal perception matters the most. It is you who make things better and worse. No matter how bad the situation is when you stay positive and full of hope then there’s just no way will things be worse. You need to gain peace from within first in order for you to give it to others easier.  Losing weight can help bring greater balance to your life and gaining knowledge on garcinia cambogia fruits and healthy alternatives will be key.

While, it is true that there are some suffer from war, politics and poverty but this should never stop people from aiming peace. You just need to embrace the fact that many people who die; men and women, young and old, there is no exception. What you need to do is to make the most out of life while you are still alive. You and everyone else may be involved when it comes to unfair treatment of power but this should motivate you to rise above it all. You need to bear in your mind all the time that if there is harmony, unity, and love for each other everyone will experience a peaceful community. By doing so, gradually no one will experience hunger and everyone will get equal treatment when it comes to the rights and dignity of people.

Lastly, you need to work harder in order to commit to this vision and you also need to encourage those that are around you to do the same too. It is very important that you create a harmonious community so that we can attain silence in our heart and mind. It is actually true that in silence we can think clearly. This is why, you need to take some time to sit in a corner and just consider everything given here.

Creating A Peaceful Environment Begins At Home

If you try to look around, you will surely see all sorts of violence and it seems like creating a peaceful environment is a remote possibility. Nevertheless, no matter how hard it may seem to be you still need to get a try because it will surely make such difference. To begin with, you can start it off by protecting your children from exposure to violence, either through first-hand experience or even through the media. This may be a challenging task that might even be overwhelming for you but when you put your whole heart in it, surely you can make it happen. As you do so, you can at least make a good start in making the environment a better place.

You can be with your children as they watch television in order for you to be sure that they settle for no less than friendly program. You can also ask help from some community-based initiatives that make an advocacy to place restrictions on what children see on television, in movies and even with the video games that they are playing. Yet, you need to make sure that you are indeed involved so that your kids can feel that you are committed in helping them be a peaceful individual. You also need to think that you do have a unique responsibility and opportunity to show by example how it is to be being peaceful. Truly this is the best first step you can ever do in deciding to build a peaceful environment.

This can made possible by setting a clear and consistent limits. You simply can’t make standard you can even meet up yourself. You do need to make sure that you talk the walk. By doing so, you can help your children find positive ways to express fears, anger and frustrations, and by remaining as calm and unflappable as possible in the face of provocation. This is something that your kids may never learn outside your home. It is you who shall make such a big difference in your children’s life; you simply can’t put fingers on anyone in this matter because you are the sole responsible for this. You also need to keep in mind that this may never be that easy but when you love your children that much then no amount of hardship can keep you from doing this hard task. You just need to keep going so you can get the result that you want.

Furthermore, more often than not children who engage in violent, aggressive behavior need to understand that they cannot do this in alone and that it takes a parent to keep things back in order. By reassuring your children that you will help them find better ways to express their feelings, they will surely feel better about themselves. As a matter of fact, even children who have been exposed to  violent experiences can learn about peaceful conflict-resolution, respect for other children and property, and respect for themselves when there is a parent that will support and motivate them. It is also very important to structure activities that allow children to let you know what they are thinking and feeling. In this way you will know certainly how to deal with them.

Lastly, creating a peaceful environment really starts at home. You can’t just expect the whole world to change that fast. You need to keep in mind as well that another critical element for creating a safe and peaceful environment is open, honest and frequent communication with families. You cannot be effective if you are working in the dark no matter what happens. It is important that you also create opportunities for other parents to tell you if stressful or frightening events happen to or around your children.

Peace Corps: In Building A Better Life

Do you want to fight for peace? How much will you give in order to win peace? Peace corps is always aware of their responsibilities. The team started in the year 1960 when John F. Kennedy strongly challenged the students of the University of Michigan. Peace is extremely important to all of us. It eliminates war, chaos, conflicts, and more. Through it, people get the best of life. But, what is the best way of achieving peace? Is it through fair living and working? Is it through constant communication and eliminating the barriers? With the decisiveness of the people and the devoted members of the federal government, world peace can be achieved. It takes a long process though it is attainable. It is even tough to start. But, the peace corps is behind many nations. People here know the best thing to do even with larger conflicts. The agency started very little with only more than 210,000 volunteers who are assigned in different host countries especially in developing nations. The volunteers strive only for peace but even for proper AIDS education, IT and environmental conservation. It is not too late for all of us to strive for harmony. We still have lots of time.

The Peace Corps is not only known for what they believe. The volunteers try to penetrate in many areas. Nations leaders are made aware of their major roles. Peacemakers simply want to help different individuals to build a better life. They want them to raise children the smart way. They want healthy communities. Creating a harmonious world to live is never easy. Yet, it is not impossible to do. What it takes to create a harmonious place to live is a common goal or interest. Yes, we strive to improve our lives and uplift it. We can do it the fair way, without compromising the others. Be inspired with the team’s advocacy. Get to know the corps mission, vision, history, and endeavors.

Volunteers are sent anywhere in the world. They are not just ordinary people. They have taken their vows to serve the people and maintain peace in all nations. Many institutions both in public and private support the volunteers which is why many are looking forward to join the team. Through them, peacekeepers rapidly grow in number. They are even becoming a huge family. This time, there is no single person who fought in the battle. It’s the work of everybody not only of the volunteers but even the ordinary citizens. A few returned volunteers like Chris Matthews and Paul Theroux have their inspiring stories to tell. Now, if you like to be part of the peacekeeping community, know the policies and regulations. Sending yourself off join the corps can be tough. Its not as ordinary as what you expect. You’ll be separated with your family. You’ll be far from them. You will be sent in one of the remote places of the world and from there, you’ll start making lives better. But, consider the lifelong benefits in being a volunteer.  You can try and ask where to buy or find garcinia cambogia. It is one of the noblest moves you can ever make. As a peace corps member, get all amazing benefits such as free health services. You can also receive a stipend on your way home. However, with all the amazing benefits, the feeling that you try to immerse with other cultures, learn different languages and maintain peace, these are already enough to repay all your sacrifices and hard work.

The peace corps is always amazing. The members never think of their own life conditions. They prioritize the others and the communities where they belong in. If you think you deserve a spot in this profession, educate yourself further. Get a real experience and make lives better.

Why We Need To Work For Peace

Peace for all nations of the world! This phrase is every one’s dream. This is a powerful word yet very humble phrase that most people neglect nowadays. Almost every person often wishes for this. But how come we still experience violence and crime? Why are there numerous cases of murders and massacres? Why do people experience discrimination and poverty? Why are there still many victims of violence? Why is it hard to attain a peaceful community? This only shows that we are not sincere with our oath. We pronounce our campaign and ideas, but we find it hard to put it in action. That is why we need to still work and assess our life to totally experience this moment of happiness for a lifetime.

But, how could we experience this moment, if in our world there is chaos and turmoil? In fact almost all of the countries in the world experience hostility and transgression. Some suffer from war, politics and poverty. Many people die; men and women, young and old, there is no exception. Everyone is involved when it comes to unfair treatment of power. These are the doings of greedy individuals who don’t want to be involved with other people especially if they know that those people cannot help them with their personal motives. These people always want to be on top that is why they don’t want to see the success of other people. However if there is harmony, unity, and love for each other everyone will experience a peaceful community. No one will experience hunger and everyone will get equal treatment when it comes to the rights and dignity of people.

Therefore, we need to work harder in order to commit this vision of ours. We need to create a harmonious community so that we can attain silence in our heart and mind. It is actually true that in silence we can think clearly. Through this we can make the right decision. And here we will know the answers to our problems.  In silence we can reflect and weigh the things that we have done. Did we play fair and good to people around us? Are they happy with our service to them? Yes, in being silent, our mind and heart unite to do good things to our neighbor.

We must pray and be a good example to everyone. Starting from your self, correct those bad habits of yours. Forget the hatred that makes your heart aches. Instead think of those happy moments and make it as your motivation to go on serving and working for unity and harmony. If you hurt people, do not hesitate to say sorry and ask for forgiveness. Humbling yourself is not an easy task especially if you are not used to it, but after the reconciliation you will feel free. Unload your bad experiences in your heart and load it with good experiences. Through this, you will create a peaceful environment. Get rid of that envy towards your co-workers, friend and neighbors because it will only cause you problems. Being envious to the people that surround you is not a healthy habit. Sometimes this attitude makes a person miserable and insecure to the extent that they become violent and selfish.

Hence if you want to find happiness and total silence in your life you need to work for your dream to happen. Do not just wait for other people to do this because in attaining peace everyone must move and show their contribution to the world. Forget all the human greed that dwells in your feeling instead you need to cultivate the love that’s in your heart. Plant it and nourish it so that it will bare good fruit. And when this happens do not forget to share these blessings to other people. Only then we can attain harmony.

Taking Action To Make Peace In Your Home

Your home is one of the most important places as a source of peace. If you are exposed to a very stressful environment like your office, you should have that peace that you when you get home. But peace can only be achieved if you are taking action to make peace in your home. It’s not easy to have that total peaceful environment but it’s also possible. There are ways or actions that you can do to promote peace ion your own home. Here are some of the ways that you can imply into your home.

Set House Rules: Setting house rule is very important especially if you are just starting a family or your family is getting bigger. Rules will set the limitations of things that each family member should do and shouldn’t do. This will also help to discipline your children. Rules also eliminate conflicts because everyone has to follow certain ground and they will be on the same ground. No one gets to take advantage of the other because of the rules. This is why rules can really help in promoting peace in a home.

Teach Respect To Your Children: Aside from setting house rules, your family members especially your children should learn and understand that importance of respect. Try to talk to your children about respect. Make them understand that other people will respect them if they also know how to respect themselves and other people. Teach them to respect each other’s privacy, private property, and the person itself. Teach them to respect you as their parents as well. There are kids nowadays who don’t respect their parents just because they don’t agree most of the time. But that is up to the parents on how they raise their children with respect. If your children understand the importance of respect and being respected, it will be easy for them to implement that into their lives.

Have Family Counseling: This is not very common practice to most families. Family counseling is not only applicable for those religious families but also for all families. Parents should have this type of counseling once in awhile. Family counseling will let the parents become aware of the current situation of his family. This is the perfect time to discuss any family issues and problems. This is also the best time to talk to your children about their schools and other personal concerns. There are also many issues that can arise within the family, chemical imbalances, or other emotional struggles, Some needing medications consult with your physician if this is the case, also your local pharmacist, Evers Pharmacy.  By that, you will be able to address or give attention in finding solution to those problems.
