How to prepare to give up something for Lent

How to prepare for Lent

 

What is lent

During the weeks leading up to Easter,  Christians prepare for it by taking their spirituality particularly seriously.  This period is called Lent.  It lasts just over six weeks. https://christianity.org.uk/index.php/a/what-is-lent.php

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means “spring.”   In Lent, many of us Christians commit to fasting and praying , as well as “giving up” certain luxuries in order to “replicate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ’s journey into the desert for 40 days.” Even if you are not a christian you can decided to use this period to give up something. The interesting fact is that most religions have  a period of fasting, praying and seeking divine guidance.

 

Decide if you want to “give up” something. Lent is based on sacrifice, so most of us  who believe in lent choose to stop eating a favourite food or pursuing a favourite activity. Whether you give up or start something is completely your choice, so choose wisely.

 

Questions to ask your self before you give something up for Lent.

 

  1. Is this something I like?
  2. Is this something I enjoy doing/eating?
  3. Is this something that’s important to me?
  4. Do I think this will be a challenge throughout Lent?
  5. Will I appreciate this when I can have/do it again on Easter?
  6. Am I giving this up because I have to (someone is making me), or because I want to?

How to keep going and don’t give up

  • Remember the reasons why you are giving this thing or activity up
  • Imagine how better you will feel or look when you come to the end
  • Prepare in advance how you are going to celebrate you achieving this.
  • Get yourself someone who you know will encourage and support you
  • Write down some positive encouraging affirmations that you can read out each day
  • Pray each day for strength to carry on till the end

Best wishes and do let me know how you get on.

Finding Inner Peace

Finding Inner Peace

Inner peace is where you have a sense of harmony, emotional well-being and fulfilment in your life despite any challenges you may be going through (money, relationships, loss, etc). You can achieve inner peace by practising acceptance of yourself and the world around you, engaging in things like prayer, mindfulness, and meditation.

Accepting Your self

Acceptance of yourself is crucial to the promotion of inner peace because it enables us to be okay with what is currently happening no matter what the circumstances. One way to practice acceptance of your life is to be grateful for what you have instead of focusing on what you do not have

acceptmyself

 

Give up control over things you can’t change

We cannot control what others think, feel, or do so try to focus on what you can change.

 

Focus on right now through mindfulness

Mindfulness can help increase inner peace. Mindfulness is being aware of the current moment, the here and now, instead of thinking about the future or the past. Thinking of the past may lead to depressed mood or regrets, and thinking about the future can increase anxiety and worry. Being completely present in the current moment can increase your feelings of contentment.

prayer

 

Most people in times of crisis tend to pray sometime in panic or utter desperation. Prayer for inner peace for me helps to calm my mind, gives me  clarity, and inner peace. At times, when I feel so stressed and not know what to do I just say “ Oh God help me and give me the strength and wisdom to go through this”

Meditation

Meditation is the art of finding peace and happiness within by using simple methods of calming and stabilising our minds. Modern life can be stressful and busy. Most of the time we are carried along by the force of emotions, habits and conditioning and end up feeling tired and stressed by everyday life. Practicing meditation can change this. Meditation can help bring about a natural sense of peace and well-being that can extend to every aspect of our lives. People who meditate regularly tend to sleep better, handle the ups and downs of daily life with more clarity and ease and relate to others with more compassion and warmth.
