One of the ways I work on finding peace within myself is to try to have as much quiet time as possible. Minimum of TV, radio, outside noises, etc. I can think better that way and I don’t feel as much turbulence if I reduce some of that extra noise.

I stopped using a walkman when I walk. Now I just listen to the neighborhood noises. Calmer, more soothing.

Another thing I try to do is find the good in everyone. Especially those who annoy me. Using my sense of humor goes a long, long way in diffusing tense situations (something my oldest son taught me!).
