I got into an argument with my also-a-yoga-teacher boyfriend the other day. Does five minutes a day of meditation count?
"She's telling EVERYONE that she's "meditating" but she's just using this APP that dings and tells you to sit still for five minutes and then gives you a big gold star. That's not meditating! It's not long enough!"
Isn't it? I don't know. Here's what I do know. My parents made me brush my teeth EVERY DAY when I was growing up and it created a pattern of behavior that lasted a life time. I even floss now. Gold star!
Doing a "thing" like five minutes or meditation or 10 minutes of yoga every day creates a pattern of behavior that links positive outcomes (feeling good!) to positive behaviors (doing the yoga!) It may even lead to 20 minutes of yoga a day. But you'll have to try it for yourself.
For some guidance, try these 15-minute or less videos I made for you. More to come.
Then tell me - do YOU feel a difference?
