Strategies for a Calmer Mind

Posted on August 20th, 2023

Life can often feel overwhelming, whose with me in a space where you are grappling with internal chaos that affects your mental and emotional well-being. I want to share with you the practical strategies to manage this chaos and cultivate a calmer, more balanced mind. Let's explore some effective techniques.


Internal chaos can manifest as anxiety, stress, racing thoughts, or emotional turbulence. It's a state where our mind feels cluttered and overwhelmed, making it difficult to focus, make decisions, or maintain a sense of peace. Recognizing and acknowledging this chaos is the first step towards managing it.

How can we manage the inner me?

Mindfulness, Prayer, and Meditation

Why It Works: Mindfulness, Prayer, and meditation help ground you in the present moment, reducing the impact of chaotic thoughts and emotions. These practices encourage a sense of calm and clarity, allowing you to observe your internal state without judgment with a healthy release to a higher power.

How to Practice

- Mindfulness: Engage in simple mindfulness exercises, drawing you to the present moment, such as focusing on your breath, observing your surroundings, or paying attention to your bodily sensations. Even a few minutes a day can make a significant difference.

- Meditation: Start with short meditation sessions, gradually increasing the duration as you become more comfortable. Biblical Meditation and Guided meditations can be particularly helpful for beginners.

- Prayer: Center your mind on God's presence, aligning your thoughts and concerns with His eternal perspective. It is a spiritual discipline that fosters a deep sense of peace by shifting focus from the temporal to the eternal, from turmoil to tranquility.


Why It Works: Journaling provides an outlet for your thoughts and emotions, helping to declutter your mind. It allows you to process and organize your internal experiences, gaining insight and perspective.

How to Practice

- Set aside a few minutes each day to write about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Don’t worry about grammar or structure; the goal is to express yourself freely.

- Use prompts to explore specific issues or emotions, such as "What am I feeling right now?" or "What is causing me stress today?" you can purchase books that assist you with this here! 

Physical Activity

Why It Works: Physical activity releases endorphins, which are natural mood lifters. Exercise also helps reduce stress and anxiety, promoting a sense of well-being and mental clarity.

How to Practice

- Find an activity you enjoy, whether it’s walking, running, yoga, or dancing. Aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week.

- Incorporate movement into your daily routine, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator or doing a quick stretch break during work.

Structured Routine

Why It Works: A structured routine provides a sense of stability and predictability, which can counteract the feeling of chaos. It helps you prioritize tasks, manage time effectively, and reduce stress.

How to practice

- Create a daily schedule that includes time for work, relaxation, exercise, and social activities. Stick to this routine as consistently as possible.

- Use tools like planners, calendars, or apps to keep track of your tasks and commitments.

Healthy Boundaries

Why It Works: Setting boundaries helps protect your mental and emotional energy, preventing burnout and overwhelm. It allows you to focus on what truly matters and say no to unnecessary stressors. It also gives people the opportunity to choose to be apart of your life if they choose to honor your boundaries.

How to Practice

- Identify areas in your life where you need to set boundaries, such as work, relationships, or personal time.

- Communicate your boundaries clearly and assertively, and be prepared to enforce them when necessary.

Therapy and Support

Why It Works: Professional therapy, coaching, and counsel provides a safe space to explore and address the underlying causes of your internal chaos and accountability and a plan to optimize and execute new ways of living. Support from friends and family can also offer emotional comfort and practical assistance.

How to Practice

- Consider seeking therapy or counseling if your internal chaos feels unmanageable. A mental health professional can provide tailored strategies and support.

- Once you have language for your internal chaos seek out a coach that can help you structure a plan to optimize in the areas that feel unmanageable.

- Reach out to trusted friends or family members for support. Sharing your experiences and feelings can alleviate some of the burden.

Managing internal chaos requires a combination of self-awareness, practical strategies, and support. By integrating mindfulness, journaling, physical activity, structured routines, healthy boundaries, and professional support into your life, you can navigate the challenges of internal chaos and cultivate a calmer, more balanced mind.
