- Improve immune function, blood pressure, cortisol levels (a stress hormone)
- Reduce anxiety, depression, neuroticism, emotional reactivity
- Greater behavioral regulation, including addictions and eating disorders
- Overall improved well-being

"Between a stimulus and response, there's space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose..." - Victor Frankl

- Maintain balance and equanimity, no matter what life presents
- On-demand tools you can leverage when triggered to stay on track with your wellness plan
- Learn how habits form and how to rewire your neural circuitry and live intentionally

We start with a basic understanding about how the brain-body pathway is wired. This provides a framework to understand your unique wiring, which is influenced by genetics and life experience. How we're rigged isn't our fault, but it's our responsibility. Recent discoveries in neuroscience about the plasticity of our brain and genes tell us we can do it another way. We can train our brain and genes to live skillfully and experience life fully.
Well-being is a skill we all have the capacity for. Neurons that fire together, wire together. I offer tangible tools that can be used in-the-moment to notice the stimulus (trigger), widen the space that Victor Frankl refers to, and respond in ways that reflect your highest self and are aligned with your core values. This trains our resilience muscle, the foundation for well-being.
A 2010 Harvard study using smartphone technology found that American adults don't pay attention to what they're doing 47% of the time, and report being unhappy during that time. We can do better! Media appropriately labeled it, "A Wandering Mind is an Unhappy Mind".
