The fast-paced, stress-filled, high-pressured, material driven society of ours keep some of us in a constant state of discontentment. We are never satisfied, and never at peace with ourselves or others.

Here are a few tips to lead toward inner contentment and self-satisfaction

1. You can minimize the impact of external validation. It all starts in the mind. You actually have a choice about how you respond or feel about a situation. A wise person once said, "It does not really matter what happens to us in life, it is how we choose to respond that does." Do not allow yourself to be manipulated by images around you to the point that you dislike yourself.

2. Release the thought- "I'll be happy when I......." This thinking never allows you to rest and appreciate where you are. You are always looking ahead, discounting the right now.

3. Want what you have- instead of pining away for what you do not. Try this exercise- go to your closet, survey the contents and say, I am grateful and happy with what I have. Look at your car, kids, spouse, etc. and say the same thing.

4. Find the meaning and purpose for your life- otherwise you will seek your validation through external items. Otherwise there will be a void in your life- which you fill with external items and never, ever become satisfied. It is a vicious cycle.

5. Build in some peaceful, quiet moments of solitude on a regular basis. You need time to think, reflect and de-pressurize from life. This escape gives you the opportunity to relax, release, relate and review yourself, and your journey towards contentment.
