Spending time in nature is another way that different cultures find peace of mind. In Japanese culture, for example, they practise forest bathing or Shinrin-yoku, which involves immersing oneself in nature and focusing on the senses to reduce stress and promote relaxation.

Meditation is a popular practice in many cultures around the world with strong connections to Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism. It involves focusing your mind on a specific object, thought, or sound to achieve a state of deep relaxation and mental clarity.

Yoga calms many people: it’s a physical and mental discipline that originated in ancient India and is now widely practised in different cultures. Yoga involves a series of postures, breathing exercises, and meditation techniques that promote relaxation and inner peace.

Mindfulness is a technique that has gained popularity in Western cultures, but it comes from Buddhist tradition. It involves paying attention to the present moment without judgement and can help people reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.

Music is a powerful tool that promotes peace of mind. Listening to calming music can reduce stress and anxiety, while playing an instrument or singing can help achieve inner calmness and focus.

Dance can induce a feeling of release. In many African cultures, drumming and dance are used to connect with ancestors and the spiritual world, promoting a sense of community and well-being

Ultimately, finding what works best for you is key. What helps one person find peace of mind may not work for another, so explore different practices and traditions to discover what resonates with you and makes you feel calm and centred.
