It’s that time of year again… With all the extra stimulation and madness that goes along with the holidays it is time for me to start my Blissology inspired practice. I have been doing this for the past few years and I find that it really helps to balance out the über excess of holiday madness.
What is Blissology and how does it help?
A few years ago I came across Eion Finn who is a Canadian yogi that has put together Blissology. Blissology as it may seem is the study of finding your BLISS. Well when I saw that I was all in! You see self-study is a favorite pastime of mine and anything that can help me and help others to relax and find balance is groovy in my book. So I found out that he was coming to Charlottesville and went to his class. I studied his five main ways to access my bliss and practiced them….Daily…. For 4 weeks…. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh
- Yoga – Just jump on your mat!
- Meditation – 2-30 minutes daily…or more…
- Nature Appreciation – Go outside and hug a tree!
- Food Awareness – Learn about and celebrate real foods.
- Gratitude – Such a simple and profound practice.
- Wild Card – Love this one!
I have decided to incorporate Blissology into my month of December for the past few years and do you know what has happened? Woooop! I have consciously found and cultivated my BLISS at a time of the year that for me has always seemed a bit nuts.
So there you have it. Now go find your BLISS…… And know that you now have the tools to find it anytime! Yay!!!
