Too often, we let the world around us influence our peace. It is hard to avoid the news, toxic people, and just everyday things drain us. Here is a short list to eliminate some of the toxicity and energy drains we deal with every day.
1. Unsubscribe from emails. We all have emails we never read. Unsubscribe! The less you have to deal with, the better you will feel.
2. Take a hard look at your friends' list. Are there people on there who stress you with postings of misery, fake news, or that you haven't heard from in years? Time to weed the friend garden and let the true flowers bloom.
3. Reduce the clutter around you. In particular, reduce the paper monster! Just looking at it raises your stress level.
These are just a few ideas to get you started. Peace is not a destination, it is an ongoing journey. Self care is a major step on your path.
