20 Ways to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Posted by Will Knight

Jan 28, 2015 10:00:00 AM

“Carbon footprint” – It’s the latest buzz word being thrown around by everyone from politicians to college kids, but what exactly is it? Well, roughly defined carbon footprint is the amount of green house gas emitted by a person or population over a certain period of time.

Calculating and offsetting your CO2 footprint counteracts your contribution to climate change, shows why we need cleaner fuel sources, and reveals opportunities for reducing your carbon footprint from driving, flying, and home energy use.

Hope: The Best Birthday Present of All

Jan 27, 2015 10:00:00 AM

By blissologist (Eoin Finn)

The boat is rocking back and forth in the ever-present Florida sunshine. It is December 6, 2014 and I am out in the Caribbean Sea off Key West, Florida; leading my first ever Blissology Eco-Karma retreat.  We’re here to help a passionate team led by sea-hand Ken Nedimeyer on a coral restoration project.  Our goal: to transplant coral from nurseries where it is being grown to the coral reefs where so many corals have died.

A strong breeze coming from the North has meant that more than a few bellies are churning from the motion of the ocean. The first lot of divers is emerging. First come the telltale bubbles from the scuba tanks, and then up come the heads of the divers. They remove their masks and gulp in their first breath of non-compressed air in the past hour. They have been 32 feet down in the coral nurseries and have emerged with a few crates of Staghorn Coral ready to be transplanted on the neighboring “Pickle Reef.”

How to Manage and Embrace Work, Family, Travel, Life

Posted by Guest Blogger

Jan 26, 2015 10:00:00 AM

I travel for a living, often for months at a time, to places like Mexico, Bali, Hawaii, Iceland, Europe, etc. I’m often asked (by those who imagine being away from home as overwhelming or exhausting), how I manage work, life, and family with all of my travel and teaching.

My answer? 

Love makes everything possible. Here’s how I use it to make amazing things happen, even while traveling away from home.

Love your work

I’m always working. I don’t take vacations or days off.

The Trick? When you love your work it gives you energy.  When you love the people your work touches, the same is true.

My work is what I’m passionate about - “Living the Wild Abundant Life.” I give every day my all, and that’s my work.

Now, more than ever, it is truly possible to work from anywhere, and I do. I watch You Tube videos studying other entrepreneurs online, while waiting in lines or waiting to board.

I can sleep in the airport or on the plane (my sleep-sack goes with me everywhere) or use that time to write curriculum or journal for future blogs.

Even though the holidays are over, and 2015 is here; there is still the hustle and bustle of holiday stress.  Traveling back home, work starts up again and don’t forget that massive pile of returns you need to make.  (Why does Aunt Carol still send the worst holiday sweaters?!) 

With the start of the New Year, new intentions and new goals, make it a point to focus on you.  Give yourself time to relax, breath in fresh air, be active, get outside, and unplug from technology.  It is important to find your own personal outlet to escape the daily stresses of every day life.  Here are a few ways that you can focus on you and let go of the world, for a little while at least.  Give one or more a shot and see what resonates with you, make it your own.

Yoga Asana Spotlight – Shoulder Stand

Posted by Peter Coulter

Jan 15, 2015 10:50:48 AM

It was a snowy night after a few weeks of practicing Iyengar yoga that my instructor showed me sarvangasana or shoulder stand. This asana is referred to as the queen of all yoga postures – I still haven’t been able to master the headstand (the “king”).

5 Great Reasons to Visit Montezuma, Costa Rica

Posted by Guest Blogger

Jan 13, 2015 12:29:00 PM

A Destination Suggestion from Juil Ambassador, Dagmar Spremberg

I fell in love with Montezuma the first time during my visit in 1999. The best way to describe it is as a charming fishing village with an abundance of character and never-ending nature. I’ve been living here now for 13 years and every time I travel to other places, I fall in love with it again...

I’d love to share with you the best Montezuma has to offer. That way you’ll know what to expect when choosing it as one of your future destinations and, I promise, you won't be disappointed.....

1. The Nicoya peninsula counts as one of 5 worldwide Blue Zones (www.bluezones.com) these are places where people live longer and healthier than anywhere else in the world! Reasons for this include  the high calcium and magnesium content in the water, which is supportive of healthy bones, as well as an active lifestyle and exposure to healthy doses of sun to increase your natural intake of vitamin D. I have personally also discovered that living with the natural rhythm of day and night is extremely healing. Sunrise and sunset are all year round between 5.30 and 6 am/pm and therefore you will go to bed early, have a good deep restful sleep and wake up early with the sun and the beautiful sound of the monkeys and birds....the body will be grateful and you can leave your watch behind :)
