Peace of mind is essential for obtaining many virtues. Its absence leads to all types of shortcomings. When you have peace of mind, you can use your mind constructively. Lack of peace of mind breeds anger and resentment.
The quality of one's prayers and blessings is dependent on the mastery of one's thoughts. Above all else, one's ability to study Torah properly is based on having peace of mind.
(see Rabbi Yeruchem Levovitz; Daas Chochmah Umussar, vol.3, p.169;
Gateway to Happiness, p.73)
