In this week’s episode Kristina wanted to share 10 habits that have truly changed her life. By sharing them with you, she hopes to inspire you to either try some yourself, or even find your own habits that can change your life and support your Dream Life.
As someone who loves meditating and truly believes in the power of daily meditation, Kristina was so excited to speak with this week’s inspiring guest. Tom Cronin is an incredible coach, meditation teacher, author, speaker and co-creator of The Portal movie and book – who is leading a global movement to inspire one billion people to meditate daily!
Tom was a finance broker for most of his life and had very little idea what his purpose or calling was. He was stressed, anxious, depressed, suffering panic attacks and severe insomnia. At just 29, he reached breaking point and was admitted to hospital and diagnosed with a nervous breakdown.
It was during this dark time that Tom discovered meditation and began his journey into Eastern philosophy, eventually changing his life’s direction completely, becoming a meditation teacher and transformation coach with a passion for helping others discover the magic of meditation.
This episode, Kristina shares a little trick that she uses whenever she’s finds a task daunting or difficult to begin. This tip is so very simple but so very powerful and effective – and that is to simply, just start!
When we have a big dream or goal, most of the time it’s something new that we haven’t done before. So, it can feel daunting and hard, and often we don’t start because we don’t know where to start. The same applies when we want to create a new routine or habit. The hardest part is starting.
So, how does Kristina tackle this? She has a little rule for herself to start, with just two minutes to begin with, whatever it is she needs or wants to do. No matter what it is you’re wanting to do or dreaming of starting, take two minutes to take the first steps – even if that’s just writing a list of what you need to do – and you’ll be amazed what you’ll get done. So, what will you choose to ‘just start’ today?
