If you are wondering How to Create Happiness For Yourself with Qigong, there has never been a better time to find out.
“When I began my qigong classes with Nancy she helped me discover that there is joy all around me and it comes in smaller packages than I had thought before. Now as I have developed mindfulness, I find it’s the simple things, like a sunset, a cup of tea, a flower or a snowflake, a walk, that lift my spirits and make me smile. I realize I had been looking for happiness by buying more and more things. Now I realize that it doesn’t take much to be happy and joy comes in the simple things, in unexpected moments, & often for free! Thank you, Nancy for helping me appreciate the joy in the small things!” Wendy M.
Qigong is so much more than a weekly session or a daily practice it is the shifts and changes in how you see your world and live your life. It is about community, tapping into your inner resources and the unlimited healing energy that is available for you, LOVE.
The pursuit of happiness creates the intentional and unintentional driving force for so many of life’s decisions. These include big decisions, little decisions, and everything in between.
Learning How to Create Happiness For Yourself with Qigong will help you tap into the unlimited happiness and joy available to you.
Often people come to qigong feeling lost, overwhelmed, with a desire to slow down, take better care of themselves, to feel better, be relaxed and happier.
When we are feeling overwhelmed or distracted with our busy lives and chaotic world, time slips by unnoticed and often unappreciated. We can be caught up in our petty complaints, frustrations, and our aches and pains, Then one day you wake up and wonder “What Happened?”, or “Where am I and how did I get here?”.
Is this really it? Yup! It sure is!
It begins with the little things that we do habitually, with the decisions we are making at every moment. Decision making happens on autopilot, with little thought or consideration for the impact it may make in the pursuit of long and short term better health or happiness.
If we are mindful and consciously creating our lives we discover that there is meaning and purpose behind every decision and this moment is creating our future.
By living intentionally you can create habits and pastimes that are meaningful and bring you happiness, health, and joy.
Another important factor is your health.
Today degenerative disease is at epidemic proportions, heart disease, cancer, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, celiac disease and more. Degenerative disease is caused by lifestyle choices, diet and exercise are important AND 85% of our sickness is stress related!
We are stressed, undernourished, due to processed foods, etc. and we sit on our butts far too much.
Qigong helps us to feel focussed and mindful and then we begin to make choices that serve us, our health, our happiness, and our future. We find simplicity is just fine, thank you very much and the small things, are more than enough, and slowing down offers so many benefits. Simple food, simple exercise, doing things that make you happy, and spending time with people who make you smile, are the ingredients for a happy and rewarding life.
At this yin, quiet time of year, there is a natural desire to slow down and cozy up at home. To enjoy reading a good book, revisit a hobby, make a stew, invite friends over, light a candle and just be. Simple, quiet and rejuvenating.
Reduce stress, slow down, calm your body and mind, and connect with your heart as you practice qigong and discover new ways of seeing the world. You will make choices that nurture you and make you happy. Simplicity begins to make sense and joy is found in the small things!

“I used to believe that money could buy you happiness and I was totally focussed on my work, to get ahead. I missed precious time with my kids when they were growing up, and when I was at home I was tired and distracted. Qigong has helped me settle down and I look at my priorities. I know I can’t get the time back I missed with my kids, but I now find we enjoy our time together and it is the small things we do as a family that mean the most to me.” Jared T.
