Lisa gives tips on how to start cultivating a habit in order to see its lasting effects in your life
If you give me for yourself, I should say 10 minutes. Latest sciences says 10 minutes is what you need. Because if done consistently, it can bring last and beautiful changes in the body. So if a body 10-minute challenge, so that means if it’s midnight, and you didn’t do it, you still got 10 minutes because everybody’s got 10 minutes, see the other thing is, is to really work on the love muscle. It’s a muscle.
And when I say love, there is a really wonderful saying, Love your neighbors. Some people focus on one or the other. But you need to work on both weights every day. One helps the other the other. Even loving yourself every day. You say im going to do active love for myself, it’ll be making a Doctors appointment I didn’t make,
dealing with a situation I didn’t do, forgiving someone. A generous app design, you know, for yourself and for, and then you do something for someone else’s worth every day. It doesn’t have to be big things. It can be small. It can be a one-off so when you see someone in the street, but this is what we were saying before this will create that habit without thinking like I gotta I gotta work on that. You have to do small things.
Lisa discusses the meaning of health and wellness in the time of covid
“I think people right now still feel pretty disconnected with what health and wellness truly is. You know, I’ll see people that their interpretation is dieting to be really super doing that or their interpretation is meditation and they are super doing that and that’s great.
But what i’ll say is to me, the analogy I would give is like if You went to your doctor and he said, Doctor, you know, I decided to work on my pancreas and I’m going to I’m going to work my pancreas like nobody’s business
. I’m going to take care of it. I don’t have time for my heart or my lungs. Right now. I’ll get back to you when I’m ready to do it. Your body is not separate. It doesn’t understand that. And nor that thought that I would say you’re out of your mind. Right who treats you by what you put in your body.
It’s the same thing. So coming out COVID You see a lot of people that are highly stressed.
people just can’t take any no’s or things that go out of way and it’s because internally they are stalled out and no one exercise will help with that
