Quotes from the Episode
“Why don’t I just treat things differently now? Let me stop saying I’m too busy. Let me stop telling myself that I don’t have time to do this thing that takes only 17 minutes.”
“Really be honest with yourself. Is something as urgent as you are making it out to be? What is actually urgent?”
“If you are not the type of person who is already someone who works out and takes care of their own health, once things get really demanding work wise you don’t suddenly decide, ‘Now I should start taking care of my health.’”
“There’s a lot of power in being able to put a smile onto your face and receive energy from other people rather than displace your bad energy onto them.”
