The world can be a hectic place and it’s easy to lose sight of the simple ways we can let go of the stress and make our lives more Zen.

1. Forgive

Forgiveness is a golden life rule. You should forgive others if they’ve hurt you and especially forgive yourself for the mistakes you’ve made. Don’t be so hard on yourself!

2. Accept the things you can’t change

Try to accept the things that are holding you back from moving forward in life. If you really can’t change them, accept them and let them go.

3. Relate to others

It’s so easy to judge others, especially when we are feeling angry or hurt, but if you want to have more peace in life, you should learn to relate to others. Put yourself in their shoes and try not to judge.

4.  Refresh your life

It’s important to refresh your life with new goals, new dreams and new ideas once in a while. Just make sure you don’t set too many goals, as this can be overwhelming and you can’t stick to them all!

5.  Improve your relationships

We should never stop improving relationships with ourselves and other people. Make an effort to keep in touch with friends, tell your family how much they mean to you and respect college friends or colleagues. This will give you a great sense of peace.
