5 Ways to Achieve Peace of Mind

All that we are is the result of all that we have thought. The Mind is everything. What you think is what you become.” ~ Gautam Buddha

One of the things that have gone viral in our society nowadays is that people in every category of life lack happiness. We see students that consider their education a burden, keeping relationships a burden, jobs a burden and so on.
