5 Ways to Find Peace Amidst the Chaos

We frequently find ourselves in circumstances in which we have insufficient or no control over our lives. We feel confused, disorganised, irritated and overwhelmed. 

When we’re caught in a chaotic scenario, we might experience a wide variety of feelings, from melancholy to depression to rage to helplessness (and it’s perfectly normal to feel that way). When we are confronted with such situations, our lives are put to the test.

Because fear is only as strong as we allow it to be. We have the option of living in fear and panic or finding serenity and connection.

Uncertainties, worries, and an inability to manage the situation all contribute to the chaos. That’s when you’ll need to channel into your inner calm to alleviate the tension. All of that outside chaos is only a reflection of our mental condition, and by soothing that turbulence, we may regain our inner serenity. It’s difficult to keep tranquilly in the middle of life’s struggles, with all the drama and tension.

Instead of trying to completely control the situation around us, what’s important is to maintain peace by resting our body, mind, heart and soul. That’s when we need to tap into our inner calm and have a good outlook.

“A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval” — Mark Twain

To deal with such situations, we first need to accept things as they are. We can’t manage our existing circumstance in life until we accept them. With every confrontation, with the difficult phases of life, we tend to lose our minds and start questioning everything around us, even our own existence.

Instead of getting mugged up by our dark thoughts we should try to calm our mind and deal with the situation practically. We need to strike a balance in our life, to expand happiness and have a sense of fulfilment.

Take a break 

One way to trigger a calming response to chaotic situations is by taking a break. Give yourself time to take in all the events happening around you. 

Prompt your brain to take a break — read a book, listen to music or go for a walk in nature. It’s a great way to de-stress yourself and relax.  

Once you relax and set yourself free from all the stress, you can get back to work with a refreshed mind. A short break is essential to restore yourself. 


Meditation will bring serenity to your life. It will help in calming and soothing the mind. It’s a comfortable way to get relaxed and forget all your worries. 

A session of 5 minutes in the morning will keep you(stay or keep your mind) fresh all day long. Alternatively, meditating for 5 minutes at the end of the day will help you in getting rid of the tiredness. 

Meditation will help you to calm emotional and mental agitation. You will feel more alive as a result of it.

Find Positivity

Finding positivity in negative situations is creativity. No matter how chaotic your life is, you should always try to find something good, something positive in such situations. 

We often tend to lose our perspective when we’re stressed, which turns a molehill into a mountain. Think from a higher perspective, and all your problems will become tiny enough to be solved. 


Gratitude will help you feel more positive, help in building strong relationships and relish good experiences. Every day find things that you’re thankful for. Regardless of your feelings, gratitude will brighten up your day and make you feel better. 

Gratitude will enhance your well-being by blocking your toxic and negative thoughts, making you happier. 

No matter what the situation is, you can always find something that you’re grateful for. 

Give yourself some time

Life has become so fast-paced that we have completely forgotten ourselves. We ignore ourselves and just focus on our work and goals. 

Work and goals are important, but what matters the most is you. Trapping yourself into the chaos of life and not giving time to yourself, worsen your ability to handle unpleasant situations. 

Make yourself a priority. Taking time out for doing what you love will make you happier even when you’re stuck in chaos. 

Cut all the drama from your life and resolve what makes you restless. Don’t let chaos control your life. Take charge of the situation!
