  • Hi Margo, sorry to hear you are experiencing such a hard time right now. Each person experiences calm in their own way. What brings you joy? How could you make time to experience more of whatever your answer is into your life? This is said with much love, but your words seem filled with anger and that in itself can be an emotion that blocks our…Read More

  • Hi Beatrice, I am so pleased you found this article helpful. Retirement can often bring a feeling of the loss of purpose and that in itself can cause stress. Enjoy the time you have to just BE now that you're retired and do some things you love which make you feel good now you have the time. Linda x

  • Thanks Bronwyn. I always feel calm is more achievable when we find practical ways to create the space for it rather than just the mindset. Linda x

  • Hi Sheela, Setting strong boundaries and “protecting” my calm has been a huge part of me being able to experience less stress. The quote “Never let the behaviour of others destroy your inner peace” comes to mind. I'm glad you enjoy my articles. Thank you for taking the time to read. Linda x

      I am retired and still feel stressed because one does not know what to expect anymore in our world.
      It helps me to pray and meditate.
      You reminded me the world will not end because of mistakes one makes….

    • Trying to find calm in my environment with my neighbours is most definitely a challenge. I’ve tried everything. Incense, candles, medication, thought control, trying to ignore them, trying to keep busy, going to my gym classes, the list goes on. I’ve tried Mindfulness, and other techniques to deal with this ongoing issue and evil intimidation from two lower mentality “ humans”. I’m not sure why everyone thinks that sitting reading a book is the ideal passtime for everyone, I can’t stand reading books. But I find other ways to try and focus my attention. I’m always aware of the banging doors and noisy background though, which disturbs my focus. I end up feeling quite depressed. I would love to find that inner calm and to be able to block out the World, but I’m in the wrong place. No one wants to help. I’m also unable to have meaningful conversations with anyone. I’m on my own. I have a morning routine, there isn’t much nature in my area. I wouldn’t get peace to enjoy it anyway. Those tips are helpful enough, but they’ve all been suggested a million times before and are pretty general. They provide a canvas to work on, just adjusting where necessary. It takes a heck of a lot to find calm and peace in some people’s lives. I have to get up very early, or stay up very late to get peace from downstairs and to be alone with my thoughts. I like the sound of the sea, or traffic in the distance, I like my phone, so I’m not banishing it from my bedroom when it’s people who cause me more grief than my technology. Some of those are Feng Shui tips, and I imagine they might work for some, but I find that people go back to their old ways after trying those things. Being on my phone actually helps me to wind down, and then I know it’s time to go to sleep. That’s just my way, it’s not as easy as it looks. It depends on a lot more, but it’s a helpful article. We all need a bit of help. Thank you

      • Hi Margo, sorry to hear you are experiencing such a hard time right now. Each person experiences calm in their own way. What brings you joy? How could you make time to experience more of whatever your answer is into your life? This is said with much love, but your words seem filled with anger and that in itself can be an emotion that blocks our ability to experience calm. I have experienced homelessness in my early 20's as a single parent of a young daughter and lived in an area that I did not find peaceful either. My first step to getting myself out of there was to shift my focus from everything I did not like about it to all the things I was grateful for about the situation. Perhaps this would be a good place for you to start? What are the positives of where you live? For starters you have a roof over your head, which is something many don't have in life. Do you have things around you in your home that bring you a sense of peace and calm? House plants are a great way to bring nature into your home if you don't have much access to natural outdoor spaces to enjoy. They also help improve the air quality in your home and calm help promote better sleep, something which really helps us reduce stress. Use your phone to find groups on Facebook that will give you positive people to have meaningful conversations with, there are lots out there. For this reason, our phones can in fact be very helpful in assisting us to find more calm by connecting us with people who can support us on our life journey. Wishing you well on your road to finding more peace and calm and sending love to you from Scotland. Linda x

    • ….And my Monday was ok. Thank you. Challenging, as usual, like every day. I was helping my Father. Trying to overcome neighbour issues, saw another neighbour on my way to town, who pretended she didn’t see me but I kept shouting her until she turned round. I got through it, let’s say. Thank you

    • Love this article and these suggestions Linda! What beautiful reminders of the calm that is within reach. Gratitude for the bright light shining from your words. xo

    • This is such a wonderful article.. I loved the candle idea..Haven't tried one yet.. Thank you for sharing <3

  • What to Do If You Are Buried Alive in Clutter

    It is often said that the physical clutter we surround ourselves with is an external representation of what is going on in our mind.
    I have found that to be very true for me many times. When my emotions become…

    • Linda, Thank you for this insight. It is so true. Hoarders tend to have a lot of emotional baggage that they have been unwilling or fearful of unloading.

    • I really enjoyed your article, I could relate to it so much. I am very bad at keeping things longer than I should. I am determined to rid my home of the items that have took up space longer than they should have. I know I will feel so much better when I can actually see some space around my home, when every shelf is not filled to capacity.. Thank you so much for your thoughts..

    • very helpful and insightful article many thanks

    • I found this article extremely helpful and reassuring as just today I decided to remove all the things off the bed in the spare bedroom where my son will soon be sleeping by removing one box each day to clear it all off. I managed to clear three boxes today and I surprised myself. Also, I went through all the medicine I had sitting out on my kitchen counter and arranged my small cubboard so they could be put away there out of site in an orderly fashion. I put the pills I haven't been using on the higher shelf and therefore made room for the ones I presently take everyday. I realize I still have some decluttering to do which I will continue to work on. Thank you for this article. It does really clear one's mind from chaotic and negative thoughts by freeing the space and clutter around oneself.

    • I really enjoyed your wonderful advice Miss Linda!!! If we follow your advice I am positive we are going to feel liberated!!! Today I am in a big mess and my brain is filled with very dark fog, making me very crazy!!! Today the weather in Montreal is terrible!!! The sky is full of dark grey clouds, it feels like 29 degrees celcius and the humidity is 75%!!! I thought by listening to some bouzouki songs would clear the clutter but no such luck!!! Then I discovered the magic solution, air conditioning or a swim in a lake!!! Thank you for this amazing article!!!
      🙏🙏🙏

    • Thank you Linda
      Yes it feels so good getting rid of unwanted things. Things that are no longer needed. Xxx

    • Love this article thank you so much for sharing however my house is covered in paperwork as I'm going to court very soon this has helped me in many ways god bless you both xx

    • Wow this was such a powerful article. I really loved everything you said about decluttering especially the EFT technique of requiring our brain. Thank you so much for sharing !
