Though I'm a dedicated atheist, I have found the image of Buddha helpful in making me feel serene. I have several statues of Buddha in my garden.
I don't know how it works, whether it's the face with the closed eyes, whether it's my knowledge of the commonsense philosophy of Buddhism, whether it's the experiences I have had while traveling in Buddhist countries, I know not! It doesn't really matter.
Keep your eyes peeled for images that make you feel serene and surround yourself with them.
You'll be glad you did.
