Modern life ends up making us miserable most of the time. We are tired, drained, and often turn sour. Most of it is influenced by the people and situations around us. Here are 6 easy steps you can take to control your life better and maintain your inner peace:
Declutter your space
Decluttering is one of the easiest ways to reclaim your inner peace. Decluttering goes well beyond the materials at your home- declutter your social media by unfollowing anything that does not bring you happiness. Declutter your life by getting rid of negative relations, and even opt out of events you don’t like attending. Clean surroundings are sure to bring you peace.

Nourish the body
Eat, drink, and sleep. The basic necessities of our lives are what we often tend to ignore. Too busy for that lunch, forgot to carry the water bottle, need to finish the assignment- yes we will always have work but we must keep a healthy balance. Your mental peace does depend on your physical well being so don’t ignore your body.
If you seek inner peace, you have to be conscious and in control of your thoughts. As humans, we are prone to worrying and such thoughts often tend to be negative. So the next time you sense a negative line of thought coming up, just speak out loud: “No, not now”. Immediately try to think of something that makes you happy and calm.
Say no to the things you don’t want
“No” has acquired almost a devilish status in a world where FOMO rules. But what we must realize is our mental health and peace comes before anything else the world has to offer. This one “negative” word can bring much positivity in your life if you reject the things that ring you no joy.
Listen to your intuition
A skill we all should keep honing is how to listen to and interpret our intuition. When we are tuned in to our intuition, it will guide us to what is best for us. Even before our conscious mind is aware of what is best for us, our intuition will know. Learn to trust your intuition.

Cut people off
If you are constantly in the company of people and situations that stress you out, it’s time to cut them off. Toxic people and situations can be draining and not the most conducive to inner peace. While it is easier to avoid events where you don’t wish to go, avoiding people can be more complicated. But try nonetheless. Eliminate all toxic people and seek the ones who make you truly happy.
