“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.”

John Kabat-ZinN
founder of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine

Your brain on stress. Your work and your life on stress. Sometimes it is not pretty.

Our brain communicates and our body reacts. This lesson helps us to understand the link between the mind and the body.

Learn the brain science behind stress, and how to reduce it.

So, put your feet on the floor, get comfortable, and let’s get started.

When you finish with Lesson 1, we are counting on your feedback. Treat it like a salad bar – put it ALL into the bowl! Don’t make a plain old salad with lettuce and ranch dressing. Add the ham, the cheese, the bacon, the tortilla chips- even the beets! We want that monster salad of feedback, so click that evaluation link and pile it on.
