Feeling bogged down with the weight of world affairs?
Is it daunting for you to celebrate the holidays while many people and their loved ones are sick or fearful during the current health crisis?
Well you’re not alone.
And I want you to know that it’s possible to feel drained and exhausted, and then access deep joy for our abundance…gratitude for the struggle and the flow.
It’s still possible to find joy, even in the midst of difficulty. Access that deep emotion that stirs inside of your heart and soul. This is the well of deep joy within you.
Being joyful doesn’t have to translate into being happy in every circumstance.
When you can’t find joy, simply be thankful. When we are enduring hardships and a full plate, we usually try to muster the strength to persevere when we really want to just crumble.
In our quest to be strong, it can sometimes be uncomfortable to soften our hearts, even for a moment, in order to see past the struggle and be thankful.
Perhaps it feels like opening that door would overwhelm us with a tidal wave of emotion. But this is where the gold is – and you have a goldmine inside of you!
In the movie Shadowlands, C.S. Lewis and his wife discuss the fact that they can feel both pain and joy, while soaking in the view of a beautiful landscape. As C.S. Lewis is trying to cope with the pain of his wife’s terminal illness and her inevitable death, she challenges him that “the pain then is part of the happiness now.”
So no matter what we are dealing with, we can go within and access that deep well of joy.
In today’s video, I am going to review 6 tips for you to be more joyful during this holiday season:
- Slow down;
- Be intentional.
After I break down the 6 tips to be more joyful during the holidays. We will bring the intention of joy and I will guide you in a meditation to access deep joy.
Give me the term “joy” below and I will send you the show notes from today’s video so that you will be able to access more joy in your life.
If we’ve not met, I’m Jen Dial and I help busy people plug into their inner peace, align with their purpose and achieve their health goals with meditation on a daily basis.
We do this using my signature Golden Particles Meditation Technique, via private coaching, group masterminds and our Meditation Library full of recorded meditations that help you navigate the valleys and peaks in life.
Now, I will explain my 6 tips to accessing more joy, then we will meditate together.
Remember to enter “joy” below for the show notes.
- Practice gratitude throughout the day;
- Unplug from technology, cameras and work, if possible;
- Slow down to be present and mindful of the moment;
- Focus on positives & simple pleasures;
- Plan properly and surround yourself with happy people and experiences;
- Be intentional and dwell in the reason for the season.

Practice practice practice and it will become second nature for you to release old patterns that no longer serve you, and replace them with experiences that you and your loved ones feel good about.
When we show up to holiday gatherings calm, happy and open-hearted for festivities, this is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and others.
