What does “Bliss” mean to you? For us, bliss means fully accepting yourself and your life in the moment and
feeling harmony and happiness with your body and soul. Aaaaaah, bliss.
Today we are sharing a post written by Lindsey Smith and Lorraine Miller, the authors of the recently released book, Bliss Cleanse: Your Two-Week Mind, Body, Spirit Guide to Greater Health and Happiness. Enjoy!
bliss (n): total state of happiness; utter joy
When it comes to finding or creating bliss, it’s important to understand where you are and where you want to go, all while appreciating the here and now.
Bliss is not much of a “thing,” but more of a feeling. Bliss is a feeling of happiness for no reason, a state of relaxation, or a deep appreciate for life.
To help you cultivate more daily bliss into your life, try one of these tips daily:
1. Do something you love. Do at least one thing each week that really makes your heart sing, something you would feel truly grateful for. Know that this act of self-love will nourish you like no food can.
2. Practice daily gratitude. Simply write down 3-5 things you are grateful for and focus on how you feel when you think about them. We recommend getting a separate journal to do this, and practicing gratitude either first thing in the morning or last thing before going to bed.
3. Spend extra time with people who make you feel loved, supported, and appreciated. It’s easy to hibernate in the winter when it’s cold, but make sure you make time for those important people in your life.
4. Get crafty. Try starting a hobby or picking up something you used to love, but haven’t done in a long time. Winter months are great to get creative or crafty because we tend to be indoors more.
5. Spruce up your surroundings. Decorate your space with green plants and inspiring artwork. Celebrate your space and make it yours by choosing items and colors that lift your spirit and make you feel good.
