In Tough Times You Can Find Peace.At certain times, it might seem impossible to find a few moments of peace in your life. If you have a lot of responsibilities or worries, you may feel caught in a whirlwind of trying to get things done while trying to deal with problems. The good news is, no matter how difficult your external life is, you can add healing peace to each day. This won’t magically make everything okay, but it can help you deal with stress and protect your health. Doing what you can when you can is one way to achieve peace about issues. Plan and make your efforts as meaningful as possible. Recognize early when stress is beginning to overtake you. Ask for help with chores that can be delegated. Take a look at your calendar; use notes or lists to make sure you prioritize those things that have to be done. When new ideas, needs, opportunities, and requests for help come in. It’s always a good idea to take your time and delay an answer by saying something like, “Let me check my calendar and get back to you with a decision.” This also avoids the immediate pressure of having to make a quick decision. Saying “no” is a skill and does not usually come naturally. If you are grieving or feeling ill, seek support from professionals or peers. Connecting with other people dealing with similar pain can give you immense strength. These may seem like small, unimportant things, but having moments of peace in your life everyday can help you live better and do more. Don’t let stress go unaddressed. Your health and the wellbeing of those you care about are at risk if you do. If you need to make a major shift (job change, break up, relocation), find ways to make the adjustment easier. Examine scenarios and address emotional issues that can clear the way for a healthy decision. Ask yourself if what you’re struggling against really is worth all the anger and frustration you feel. Only you can decide what is best for you and your family. Exploring these different strategies allows you to hold onto hope.Admin InternKartiga Devi
During my internship here in ABRI Integrated Mental Health, I was introduced to a book titled “Family Ties that Bind”. This book is really interesting as it talks about how families function and what you can do to change the way you act in your family and with other people. In one of the chapters, it mentioned that most people feel peace when two people seek for the same thing at the same time. When differences emerge, we might feel anxious; therefore, there is a tendency for most people to perceive individual differences as a threat in relationships. While facing these individual differences, we might try to make the other person more like us. And when we failed to do so, we feel nervous. This is when people start to accuse the other person as the cause of their anxiousness. With this piece of knowledge in mind, I reflected on my relationships. I realized this pattern of behavior does exist. Although I am aware that everyone has different opinion, preferences and personality, it was still hard for me to accept and deal with the differences. I was getting used to seeing them through the lenses of my eyes, instead of seeing them as an unique individual. Somehow, I would accuse them for being different and try to convince the other person that my way is the better way. This particular chapter about sameness really is an eye opener. Many of the issues in my past relationship were brought to the surface. I finally get to see why things happened the way it happened. I came to the realization that, in situation like these, no one is the bad person. Instead, we are just trying to cope with the differences in our own way. It is always good to be able to reflect on the past. Now that I am aware of this, I will try to embrace the differences I have with other people, for the betterment of ourselves.By Li Ann,Admin Intern.
