Blissology Project: Day 13 – Saturday, February 3rd
This is Day 13 of our two weeks to Commit to Bliss. The Blissology Project will run from Monday, January 22nd until Sunday, February 4th 2018.

Don’t let the 13 sway you, this is a day full of all kinds of luck and blessings. You’ve almost made it to the end of the Blissology Project and you’re feeling embodied in the energy of the Upward Spiral. Let’s carry these good vibes forward today!

- Eat a meal outside today. Even if it’s cold go for a walk with a warm thermos of soup. If it’s warm where you live savour lying on the grass or beach with the sun beaming down on you while you munch.

This is both breakfast and dessert all in one and it is delicious.
¼ cup chia seeds
½ cup hot water
1 to 1 1/2 cup almond milk (I prefer to use homemade almond milk) but otherwise try to find a creamy unsweetened almond milk
1 – 2 tsp raw honey or maple syrup
½ tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
½ tsp cardamom powder or cardamom seeds ground finely into a powder
1 tsp Coconut butter.
Optional: 1 tsp rose water
- Pour hot water over chia seeds and mix thoroughly. Soak in the refrigerator for several hours or even overnight to make a thick gelatinous chia gel.
- In a bowl or in a blender, mix in all ingredients. Blend lightly and taste. Adjust for sweetness.
- To serve, garnish with some cardamom powder, rose petals and mint leaves, or any seasonal fruit.

- When you find yourself in a bad situation today do your best to take a few deep breaths before reacting. Ask yourself, “What can I learn?” When you look back at the situation without emotion later what will you be grateful for?
- Cook a meal for a loved one. You could even make your favourite meal and share the experience of mindful eating together.
