We can read about yoga; we can read about being empowered. But until we actually put it into practice, and do something, nothing is going to change.”
Cristi discusses how to develop a consistent practice of meditation.
What I really want everyone to know is that you don’t need to spend three hours a day and ritual or an hour a day and ritual their practice like one of the most powerful things that I find is like micro practices, questions that take just some may take 30 seconds like taking a few breaths, right. Some might take a minute when you rub your hands together and then you bring your hands to a part of your body that you need it. And you can have these micro practices or a mantra that you say, you know in your mind you take a moment to feel your feet on the ground, right to help bring the anxiety down, that you can do 123 10 times throughout your day, that actually is going to regulate the whole of your day. keep you connected to your body. keep you connected to spirit keep you connected”
