What Brings You Peace of Mind?

Questions like this can prompt us to make lists or try hard to remember, but it really is a simple question.

What are the things that you do that allows you to enter into a state where you experience peace of mind?

Just notice what you do. Often it is a simple thing, perhaps reading a book, sitting by a window watching the clouds change color at sunset, enjoying a cup of tea while listening to some soothing music.

Perhaps it is just going for a walk or singing a song or chant. How about swimming, feeling the water all around your body, and how even your thoughts seem cleansed while you are going through the simple repetitive motion.

If it has been a while since you did any of these things that bring you peace of mind, ask yourself, why? Why don't I do this more often?
