“More and more when I have had these reset moments it has reminded me that my happiness is an inside job. And my happiness and my sense of calm is created by me and not by external circumstances.” (10:37)

“What we need to do today, in my opinion, is to recognize yes, there is a lion out there, but its six miles away. And so we should be aware of coronavirus, we should be aware of the economic realities that are taking place around us, but we should not be allowing ourselves to be adrenalized by that.” (22:56)

“Most of us shouldn’t even be afraid of the virus, what we should be more afraid of is the mental viral fear that’s going around. And that’s where this conversation, I think, is so important. The making time for mindfulness and making time for breathing exercises, so that way we can let the lion walk right by and go ‘Look its a lion, I’m not worried about it, it’s not stalking me.’” (24:48)

“At the end of the day right now, what we all need to be taking care of is our own health and our family and our community. And then we can start spreading the circles out beyond.” (40:18)

“We will never go back to exactly what was before, and that means that more than ever before we are going to be responsible for ourselves, we’re going to be responsible for our own mental health and mindfulness, and we are going to be responsible for our physical health.” (41:36)
