There is a problem with problems. They build and escalate in your mind until it becomes difficult to clearly and rationally think your way through and deal with them in an effective way. This lack of clarity can cause difficulty in sleeping which further compounds the situation, very quickly leading to desperation, panic and breakdown.

Some problems are worse than others, and can be short term or long term. They can be financial, health related or relationship problems. But they all affect your mind in the same way, and it is this that must first be overcome in order to resolve the problem, or at least find a way of dealing with it.

In this situation it is all too easy to turn to drink or drugs to numb your mind. This temptation must be avoided, and in fact there are two natural alternatives to these that will help you deal with any problem that life can throw at you - exercise and meditation.

Exercise taken regularly and consistently over a long period will give you a feeling of physical peace and wellbeing, which in turn will lead to inner peace and positive thinking. It is a well documented fact that jogging or running over a period will release endorphins into the brain which act like a natural opiate. They relieve both physical pain and mental anguish, and will bring on positive thoughts and an optimistic view of life. Fifteen minutes of jogging or brisk walking is all you need to start this process.

Meditation done regularly and consistently, particularly when the mind is already relaxed and in a receptive state after exercising, will further enhance your feelings of wellbeing and in fact will then allow you to see a way through the problem. In fact you may find that there are some positives in the situation that can be exploited and used to deal with the problem. Fifteen minutes of breathing meditation is all that's needed to help you to overcome your stress and find some inner peace. Sit somewhere quiet with your eyes partially closed and turn your attention to your breathing. Breath naturally, preferably through your nostrils, without attempting to control your breath, and try to become aware of the sensation of your breath as it enters and leaves your nostrils. This sensation is the object of meditation, and you should try to concentrate on this to the exclusion of everything else, particularly the problems that you face. After some practice and regular sessions of meditation, your mind will feel relaxed and clear.

The physical tiredness and relaxed mental state resulting from the combination of exercise and meditation will help you sleep more readily which is another step forward in coping with the problem and providing inner peace.

You're then ready to move to the next level in peace and success. Watch for my next article.
