You can rewire your brain

STEP 3: APPLY THOSE TECHNIQUES OVER TIME AND CHANGE YOUR NATURAL REACTIONS


The Mind Body Project's System:

NOTICE

 

focus

By paying attention to how breath, body signals and thoughts regulate your brain, you start to develop awareness of triggers that cause the sensation of ease or discomfort. 

In the beginning, choose one entry point to explore in relation to daily challenges.  We often start with breath because breath controls our nervous system, and we can control our breath.

Practice/EXECUTE

Practice on and off "the mat," meaning formal practice in safe spaces, and in the real world.

how do we know this?

THRIVE: WITH science

Based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's medical research on mindfulness (MBSR), we can see serious evidence of re-wiring our brains and habits after 8-weeks of twice weekly practice. 

We've taken these medically sound practices one step further, to create communities of smile-infused programs for REAL people.
