The Joy in Being Still.

The time has come for all to be merry and bright. Holiday season is a time of collective giving, receiving, and a time to be still.

Now, I know you are probably wondering "Be still!? Sis, there is no way" But..what if we told you, the greatest joy this season may be found in being still?

Here are a few simple but effective ways to find stillness during the busy season.

  1. Find solitude in stillness.

2. Establish a stillness ritual.

Decide on a day of the week. Select a time and select a practice. Stillness for me, feels like settling into a meditation with my Ki Meishon- candles burning. A stillness ritual for you could be placing your phone on dnd for a duration of time and just sitting and thinking. It could also be soaking in a hot tub with everything on "mute." Explore practices of rituals to find one that soothes your soul.

3. Express gratitude

Slowing down and settling in stillness also creates a space for gratitude. Gratitude helps generate growth by showing thankfulness for things that we have received already. In your stillness try to think of 5 things that you are presently grateful for.

Practicing stillness may seem difficult at first because we are normally very busy. However as you begin to float into a constant practice it will get easier and easier. There is one thing that will definitely come from the practice of stillness - and that is JOY.

We look forward to hearing about your practices of stillness and ritual. Share some of your practices with us in the comment section.

All my best

There is joy in being still. Although my system is so use to chaos, I am finding so much relief in being still and supporting myself in a different way instead of operating in chaos. Thank you for this reflection and insight.
