in the pages of her new book, The Universe Has Your Back, Gabrielle shares the kind of ideas that shift you so quickly, you’ll want to read them ten times over to be sure they fully absorb or jot them down somewhere central so you can re-read the words all week.

After numerous New York Times bestsellers, from Spirit Junkie to May Cause Miracles, Gabby has become a symbol to many of what living deeply and mindfully looks like now, while still remaining fully immersed in culture.

Off the page, we wanted to know a few details about how Bernstein is operating in the day to day. Don’t overlook the simplicity of her advice. We’re gliding into the weekend with her current mantra in mind…

When I feel overwhelmed I...

Breathe in for five seconds. Hold my breath for five seconds. And release my breath for five seconds. This always brings me back to center.

My favorite way to take a break is to...

Read a spiritual book.
