Peace of Mind

In What gives you peace of mind? From Blue Skunk Blog, Doug Johnson shares what gives him peace of mind. He states,

“Increased anxiety seems to be a common symptom of the CORONA virus and the isolation many people feel because of it.”

This would be a good story prompt for students.

What gives you peace of mind?

I remind students many times that we can’t control what other people do or think but we can control our own actions and thoughts.

So, the things that give me peace of mind are the following things:
  • I keep in touch with family and friends.
  • I keep a prayer journal and I pray several times a day.
  • I keep a bullet journal and try to be productive every day.
  • I exercise regularly to stay healthy.
  • I choose healthy things to eat.
  • I avoid eating many things that I know are bad for me.
  • I keep track of the foods I eat.
  • I read every day.
  • I pay my bills on time.
  • I don’t spend more money than I have.
  • I keep my house clean.
  • I work on having positive thoughts.
  • I look for the good in people instead of the negative things.
  • I only watch the news on TV once a day.
  • I encourage others as much as I can.
What gives you peace? Please share.
