“That’s when you’re forced to look inside yourself.”
During the conversation, Harry revealed:
- “Mental fitness is top notch – that’s what you’re aiming for. The road towards that can be really bumpy…it’s called ‘work’ inside for a reason”
- “I know I need to meditate every day… You need to make it a habit in your daily journal or else it’s the first thing to drop.”
- “Now I’ve spent about half an hour and 45 minutes in the morning when one has gone to school and the other is taking a nap… it’s like, yeah, it’s for exercise”
- “When bad things happen, I think, ‘There’s a lesson here, I’m being learned by the universe.”
- “Every bad thing – or thing you consider bad – that happens can actually be good”
Despite his gilded LA lifestyleHarry said he’s not always able to do the things he “loves to do” because of the “stresses” he faces.
But he uses meditation and exercise to help cope when Archie goes to school and Lilibet takes a nap each morning.
“I knew I needed to meditate every day,” he says.
“There’s a lesson here. ‘I’m being learned by the universe. Next time that happens, I’ll be more resilient and can see a way around it to reach my end goal.”
“If you have that perspective, every bad thing that happens, what you think is bad, can be good.”
