The pandemic bought along with it a lot of questions, confusion and most of all, STRESS. Fear of the unknown. Constantly changing information. LOCKDOWN!! I’m happy we made it this far. However, we need to take extra steps to destress and increase the peace in our lives.
These are 6 simple ways you can increase your peace during this PLANDEMIC.
Clear the clutter: When you clear the clutter in your life, you clear the clutter in your mind. Is your house, office or car cluttered? Clear it. Make some open spaces. Store things away. Don’t keep them piling up in your space and building clutter. Use storage bins and label them. If you have a lot of papers lying around, use a file. Have a file system and store them so you don’t keep looking for stuff.
Get organized: Organize your house. Organize your mind. Organize your calendar. Know where meeting links are and have them in your calendar. Put deadlines and bills on your calendar.

Get some plants: Decorate your space with plants. Plants improve your overall wellness. They build calm and concentration. They also serve as beautiful decor. Seeing new growth on your plane improves your mood. Plus, the green indicates manifestation, money and abundance.
Get some natural sunlight: Go outside. Open up the blinds, curtains and doors. Let some pollution out of your house. Let fresh air in. Let the stale energy out and let some fresh energy in. Go outside and feel nature. Recharge. Feel the warmth of the sunlight on your skim. The warm feeling gives you peace.
