Inner Peace for 2019

Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts!

Winston Churchill

We all want inner peace. To feel calm, centred, and grounded even in the midst of our daily chaos of busy schedules, unexpected disruptions, and ongoing distractions.

Stress, anxiety, and chaos can truly ruin a great day!

When we experience chaos and stress our nervous system floods our body with chemicals that prepare us for “fight or flight” and initiates the stress response

The stress response is essential and can be lifesaving in emergency situations. It helps us to stay safe.

The amygdala, a small almond shaped structure in your brain acts like a fire alarm and is constantly checking your environment asking, “Am I safe or do I feel threatened in any way?

Although this was a great warning system years ago when we had physical threats which were more imminent, but in our “hurry up” world of unending checklists, commutes, and unexpected disruptions, the stress response becomes overactive and can take a toll on our health and well-being. It can really wear your down.

In this defensive state, your body’s ability to preserve and protect you is compromised.

3 Simple Steps to Inner Peace and Less Stress

No one can avoid all stress, but you can counteract its detrimental effects by learning how to do a NeuroMindSHIFT to put the brakes on stress and brings your body and mind back into a state of equilibrium.

Within us lies vast, untapped potential that can calm the chaos to create inner peace, experience less stress, to resurrect hope so we can experience joy, fulfillment, and success.

In the NeuroMindSHIFT to Inner peace you can access that wisdom within, the still small voice, the sacred song that puts you in harmony within yourself, with others, and throughout your life.


Here are the NeuroMindSHIFT steps to Inner Peace and Less Stress

1.) Be Present – Gain the A.P.B. of Awareness in the moment Pause and Breathe

Many times we are on auto pilot and become so wrapped up in our “to do” lists that we are not truly present, and yet this is the number one way to combat anxiety.

Stay present to the moment and refuse to think of what you have not done or lost and focus on the present giving thanks for what you can do and what you have.

There are numerous techniques to regain awareness and to bring you to the present moment. I regain awareness each hour when I work by turning over an hour glass at my desk.

I find watching the sand relaxing and when it has all gone through I get up to do a NeuroMindSHIFT to bring me back to awareness, to relax my body, spirit, and mind just for a few moments, and then I return to my task refreshed and focused.

What could you use to bring yourself back to awareness every hour? Please share this on our blog page in the comments section so we can all benefit from it.


2.) Do a NeuroMindSHIFT to bring you back to regain focus with a clear and positive state of mind.

In addition to its calming effects, a NeuroMindSHIFT can also

  • increases energy
  • improves focus
  • combats illness, relieves aches and pains,
  • heightens problem-solving abilities,
  • and boosts motivation and productivity.

My favourite NeuroMindSHIFT, that is more effective than coffee to wake you up from foggy fatigued thinking is to yawn.

Yes, Yawn!

When you yawn you initiate the precuneus in the brain and this helps to

  1. Increase your ability to concentrate
  2. Have more clarity and awareness
  3. More compassion and empathy
  4. Lowers stress and anxiety

You can do this:

Before an important talk

When you are feeling mentally tired and fatigued

If you feel anxious, angry or frustrated

So yawn, and if you don’t feel like yawning, fake yawn 4 – 5 times and many more natural yawns will follow.

And if someone says, “are you tired” when you yawn, just say I’m becoming more alert and decreasing stress.

And soon they will start to yawn too since yawning is catchy!


3.) Mastering the Mind – The Path to Inner Peace

It has been said that every problem is mental and every solution is spiritual.

Most of our problems begin in the mind with what Zig Ziglar called, “stinking thinking”, having a negative, pessimistic, “Eyore” state of mind.

How do we change this “stinking thinking”? You can master this with a repeatable, rewarding, reliable daily process that reinforces the positive and promotes lasting change.

This will reinforce being your B.E.S.T.Belief, Emotion, Sensations, and Thoughts – which creates inner balance and harmony as you start to SHIFT from reactive to responsive, from fearful to hopeful, from frustration to calm, with creative mental clarity and unwavering inner peace.

This of course doesn’t happen overnight! 21 days of following a process initiates the change, but if you fail to follow a process each day for 21 days, the new neurological connections will break apart again and lasting change will not occur.

We now know that 21 days begins the change and yet it takes 9 months to create lasting change.

So, stay tenacious! Here is a FREE tool you can use which is a repeatable 5 – 7 minute process to Master the Mind.  CLICK HERE.


The 3 steps are:

  1. Gain Awareness – Be fully present
  2. Initiate a NeuroMindSHIFT technique
  3. Be Tenacious to a process to Master the Mind
