In today’s world of chaos, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 10 things you can do to add peace, harmony and calm to your everyday life.
1. Don’t Get Involved In Every Fight You Are Invited To
Especially when you are around people who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join on the drama.

8. Surround Yourself With The Right Kind Of People
Surround yourself with people who are beyond gossiping and having a laugh. Surround yourself with people who believe in you, in your life goals and will help you to encourage and achieve those goals. Be with people who make you feel good about yourself and your decisions.
