The term ‘OM’ resonates throughout the body when chanted, unattached to any religion or principle. That makes body to move in rhythm with the flow of the sound, unbound and discharged. Peace cannot be attained as a complimentary gift out of achieving what the world pushed one to do. One can only find it within their own activities, thought patterns, habits and understanding own vices. It is rather more calming to accept self than to try fitting in with any adversities in order to look stronger for others.
Following are 10 ways to achieve inner peace through learning own capabilities:
1. Workout Daily

Clutching on to hatred produces nothing so its better to not have them as constant in lives. Let go, forgive and walk out free with new experiences to look forward to. Never keep expectations out of anything. See as it comes and let it stay according to own comfort. Enjoy.

Being confident with the correct information creates a sense of tranquility.
7. Uncluttered Work-space

Minimal objects on the table, such as a stationary box, laptop, writing pad and one item personally calming makes work seems fun, calming and worth all the effort. It makes the work-station calmer without the white noises that are emitted from the aura of the trash surrounding the desk.

Read the restriction signs the body signals that it might be overworked. Feeling drowsy, lack of enthusiasm, inability to do the simplest everyday activities only means that the mind and body have had enough. Nothing is running away, it is but one life, take one course up and stick to it, aim for higher when the base is solid.
9. Early to Bed
The body and mind need rest, restorative energy and sleep. provide it with this basic necessity. In sleep, torn muscles from workout are healed, food is digested and the body resets the clock it works in so it might be ready for the next day. let it relax, ease and stretch out. There is a new day tomorrow that needs a warrior.
10. Eating Healthy
Burgers and fries are just temporary fun with all the grease and heavy feeling. Nutrients are forever. The solution is to keep the body and mind light. Eat fresh vegetables, grilled meat, try new fruits. Knowing the nutrient counts for each item before intake educates one as to what goes into the body.
