Show Notes

Hello friends! Today on The Movement and Mindfulness Podcast I'm offering some tips around how to get started with a movement or mindfulness practice in the midst of less-than-ideal circumstances.

So often we want to wait for life to feel simpler and less stressful before we add another thing. And, I mean, that is LOGICAL. It makes absolute sense. What we're talking about today, though, is adding something that actually supports you to navigate the hard stuff, NOT to just add to the hard and the long list of 'shoulds'.

This requires a bit of a perspective shift, to be sure. But I have some simple tips that I hope will help. Specifically, I'm talking about:

> Why understanding your 'why' is so valuable
> How to keep it simple
> The difference between keeping it simple versus waiting for it to be easy
> How to hold yourself to account with kindness, rather than holding yourself ransom with guilt.

Tune in and, as always, I'd love you to come share your thoughts with me! You'll find me (Erica) over on my website, Instagram and Facebook.
