Chris has shared his insight on meditation to both Kate and I during our 1:1 calls with him. We are both always better people after each one of those calls and appreciate the depth of those conversations. Still, there are things that pull us into different directions that take us away from committing fully to meditation. In our conversation with Chris, he breaks down how he got started and shares some of the following insights: Start small. 10 minutes a day. It's OK if your mind wanders. Each time it does, bring it back to your breath.
