"Peace Of Mind" Original Canvas Wall Art by IKONICK
Protect your peace of mind. Or prepare to give it away to everyone else.
There is a term in biology called homeostasis. It's the state of a living being when all its physical needs are met. Nourishment, hydration, body temperature, it's all in sync. The perfect picture of good health.
That's all well and good for a duck or a mouse, but we humans have more complex needs. Evolution has brought us to a point where physical necessities are only part of the equation. For complete wellbeing, we need to maintain an inner peace.
Humans are pack animals. Even the biggest introverts can't live in total isolation. Everyone needs social interaction from time to time. But while some people in your life add to your peace, others can drain it. And when you spend too much time with the latter, no amount of food and water can restore your homeostasis.
We've all met those people in life. They live in crisis mode and everything they talk about seems to have an air of negativity about it. Every story they tell, every event throughout their day, it's all somehow going against them. It's a victim mindset.
As a pack animal, humans are wired to want to help. We subconsciously take on their stress and lower our own joy to empathize with them. Too often in those moments we let other people control our happiness. We feel our peace slipping away: Your smile fades, your heart drops, your mood turns. Their negativity is contagious.
You alone have power over your peace of mind. Protect it at all costs. Create a bubble for yourself and only let in people who contribute positively. Whenever you feel that peace-stealing energy start to take over, make it a priority to return to a state of calm. Take a walk, listen to music, read a book, meditate on an affirmation like this one, but whatever you do, distance yourself from the negativity.
It is up to you to maintain your own happiness. "Peace of Mind" original canvas wall artwork from IKONICK encourages you to protect yours. Your best mood and best work can only come from a place of peace. If someone or something is threatening that, cut them out and don’t look back.
