In this episode, Katina discusses how to rediscover color and creativity in life, why it’s so important to question the routines we unconsciously fall into, and how her life has changed as a result of breaking free from the work, gym, sleep hamster wheel so many of us seem to get caught up in.
Quotes From Katina:
"Many of us are on this work, gym, sleep hamster wheel and we think that’s enough, but my purpose in life is to help people seek out more."
"Always question the decisions you’re making in your everyday lives and see if it’s really true to yourself."
"In our world today we’re always being told how to do more, but I’m always trying to take away the noise and question if that’s necessary so I can get to the root of how it makes me feel and whether I want to keep doing it."
"Often times people tell me they don’t have time to do creative things that brought them joy as a kid, but research shows that we’re spending over 11 hours a day consuming media."
"I started to shift my practice to being more quiet and inward focused in the morning, and I noticed I became much more generous and patient. I felt good and began to build my mental awareness over time."
