How Movement Can Get You Out of a Funk

A Udaya yoga master on breaking patterns.

Finding the motivation to move your body takes dedication and effort. In the conversation above, Thrive Global CEO Arianna Huffington asks Udaya yoga master Rudy Mettia how we can stay incentivized to move.

Mettia compares regimented movement to brushing your teeth. If you dedicate small increments of time to movement, it becomes a habitual part of your day. “5, 10, 15 minutes” is all it takes.
