3 ways to protect your peace

If nothing else, this year has taught me to always look for peace. And settle for peace. With so much going on in this world, and probably so much going on in your personal life, itโ€™s so important to find some peace. Whether that be going somewhere, or doing something or even seeing someone… You have to find peace. But how do you do that?


Someone once said that the things you do for the first 5 minutes of your day set the tone for the rest of the day. So why not do something that puts a smile on your face or gives your heart peace? Read, say a prayer, work out, dance, sing, manifest… whatever you enjoy, do that first.


It is so easy to be mean to yourself. The way we speak about ourselves is one of the biggest contributing factors to unhappiness. That’s why it is so important to treat yourself well, speak kind and uplifting words to yourself and don’t rely so much on the opinions of those around you. Words that may seem harmless, like making ‘jokes’ about yourself will actually do so much harm to you.


We all have friends and family we love, but sometimes its the people closest to you that tend to be toxic. Not everyone in your life deserves to have access to you all the time. Its okay to block access sometimes, especially those people that don’t really bring much support to your mental health. This can be done by not answering certain calls, picking and choosing who to see, muting certain people on your social or even just completely blocking their communication for some time.

An that’s it. These are 3 of the tips I’ve used in my own life to gain some peace… And I am so happy with where I’m at mentally, so I’m staying here. In my peace.

Thanks for reading,

xx Val.

  1. I wouldn’t agree more with what you said about blocking access to you,especially from those toxic people around you.As corny as it may sound I blocked my mom at some point because of the negative vibes she was hitting me with during my lowest moments.(but that’s a story for another day.)Other than that,great read.

  2. I agree with you about cutting people off sometimes. It’s ok to have alone time, in fact I think it’s necessary in order to gather thoughts and reconnect with yourself intimately. I like the idea of mastering the first five minutes of your day. Sounds like a great way to align how you want your day to go. Great post sis and I gave your blog a follow!

  3. Hi, I don’t know you, I just came here because I saw you followed my blog, but I think that blocking access thing is something I really needed to hear right now. I have a lot of people I’m connected with on social media who I used to know in person but haven’t seen in years and have realized over time that they really aren’t the kind of people I would want to be friends with. It’s hard to bring myself to let go of those people, but sometimes I think it’s necessary. :\
