In this episode I talk about how typically all our needs are met. I believe this ties into anxiety in a big way as we're often focused on what we don't have instead of what we do have.

In this particular episode you will learn:
- Things in life will come and go but it's important to believe that things will work out in the end
- If you lost everything today and had to start again you'd actually be ok
- It's not the people or objects in life that make you happy, only you can do that
- We are often looking externally for a solution but it's actually within us
- How our needs are met with food, water, people and shelter etc
- Why a gratitude practice is so important
- Do we really need all the stuff we consume
Here are the rituals from the Leo Babauta article:
- Wake up and say a little prayer of thanks for what you have in your life.
- Keep a one-paragraph gratitude journal every evening.
- When you meet someone, bow to them (in your mind) out of respect. You might touch your heart or offer them a smile if that helps.
- When you eat, say a little prayer of thanks to everyone who made your meal possible (farmers, cooks, transporters, their families, etc.). Appreciate every bite if you can.
- Before you start a new activity (a work task, a workout, a meeting), pause and ask yourself what your intention is for this activity. Is it focused on helping others?
- When you are done with an activity, show respect for others, your environment and your equipment by respectfully and mindfully cleaning up, instead of rushing to the next activity.
