How often do you take time out to slow down, pause and ask yourself: “What do I really want?”
So often, we spend so much time being busy and distracted with work and our continuous striving for more money, more gadgets, more ‘likes’, a better job, a bigger house…that we lose sight of what our true purpose is. And as a result, it leads us to feeling stressed, overwhelmed, overworked and burnt out.
My guest this week, certified health coach and yoga teacher Michael Kohan from Your Wellness Yogi, believes if you’re feeling this way, it’s because you’re not living your purpose or doing what you really want.
In this episode, Michael shares his approach to spirituality and how to begin a mindfulness practice in order to live a healthier, happier and more balanced life. Get ready to be inspired to become a better human!
