Generally, when I want some peace of mind I will take out a book from my shelf and start reading that. That will give me some peace of mind. I prefer reading mythological books. The other activity that gives me peace of mind is Japam that chanting inside some words. If I continue that for some time I feel relaxed.
There is a temple near our house. The priest there is a very good friend of mine. Generally, every Sunday morning I go to the temple and sit there for some time. Sometimes when I feel a little stressed or strained, I will go to that temple and sit for some time. That will also give me some peace of mind.

Even this challenging situation would ease
If I have any serious problem which has disturbed me and has snatched peace of my mind, then I consult it with my wife and my elders on phone or visit them and apprise them of what problem I am facing. Also, I like to spend my time with highly pious people whom I respect a lot. I listen to lectures of great scholars also.
I agree with the author that nature gives a soothing effect on the mind. I like nature and natural. beauty very much.

Knowledge is power.
I get peace when I visit the temples like Tiruchendur, Kanyakumari Bhagavathi temple. At Kanyakumari temple, I sit on the banks and look at Swami Vivekanatha statue and Thiruvalluvar statue and the tri-sea waves from Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal and Arabian sea conjoining in one place
No life without Sun
I will just simply forget all my worries and only live like as if I don't have any responsibilities or I don't have to do anything. There is no where in this world I get a peaceful life.
After reading your response I have gone through the link provided by you, it was amazing to know about your family history. I am not able to understand the Tamil language but still feel good to see a huge list of members of one single family.
