Alexis’ tips to get pausing:

  1. Taking some time to sit – looking into a meditation teacher, which can be an online free resource such as Inside Timer meditation App, and Head Space.
  2. Willing to be flexible in the process until you find what works for you, whether it be sitting down, lying down etc 
  3. For anyone that doesn’t resinate with talking or voices. Finding a song, something that is instrumental and a song that you don’t know. And sit there listening to it. 
  4. Find comfort. A place and [position that is most comfortable for you.
