40 days to positive change course kelly mcgonigal

40 Days to Positive Change: 

Daily Support to Create a New Habit

With Kelly McGonigal

"If you've ever devoted yourself to adding a beneficial new habit to your daily life, you've likely run into a universal truth:  true personal change is really difficult." 

-- Kelly McGonigal


Kelly is a smart, engaging instructor with a deep passion for studying her subject matter on both a personal and scientific level. Her teachings are practical, accessible, and fully applicable. She delivers 40 daily lessons, 10-15 minutes each, along with 2 previously recorded Q&A sessions, as well as guided practices and exercises for initiating and internalizing positive change in your life. This program is useful for common daily habits that people often want to incorporate in their lives such as exercising regularly, getting more sleep, reading more books, eating more fruits and vegetables, or meditating daily. It can also be used to change habits on a larger scale such as taking small steps to overcome a fear of flying, or making a daily effort to declutter in preparation for a larger, overwhelming move. Kelly is your kind guide throughout this journey, as she provides structure and support by sharing the science of habit formation from the latest neuroscientific and behavioral research, and discusses the practices of motivation, intention, action, reward, gratitude, joy, encouragement, and internalization that make up positive behavioral change. By working with these principles, your new habit can become a natural, positive part of your daily life and can be instilled as a life-long habit. If you are looking for grounded support in truly making a life change for the better, we highly recommend this course! Better yet, do it collaboratively with a friend, and together you can cultivate a positive life-long habit that becomes deeply embedded in your brain and your body and contributes to your health, happiness, and ability to live life more fully.

Gratitude Daily: 

21 Days to More Joy and Less Stress

With Nataly Kogan


According to research, developing an "attitude of gratitude" is one of the simplest ways we can reduce stress and improve our life satisfaction, physical and psychological health, our relationships, sleep, self-esteem, and even our resilience after a

traumatic event. Sometimes even though we like the idea of maintaining a daily gratitude practice, we may have a hard time getting in the groove. This is where Nataly's Gratitude Daily comes in. As we were among those people who had trouble getting started, we can attest to the wonderful structure and support of this 21-day gratitude program to help us along. Nataly is our lovely, encouraging, world-renowned guide through this 21-day experience that includes daily 10-15 minute teachings, personal stories, and fun exercises to build a solid gratitude habit that changes your brain and your resilience for the better! 

kristin neff science of mindfulness and self-compassion course

The Science of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion

With Kristin Neff and Shauna Shapiro


We love this 7-hour downloadable experience with Kristin and Shauna. As it's recorded in a recent workshop setting, it has the feel of being in a live class with a live audience but you can start anytime and go at your own pace. By combining the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion, the practice of mindful self-compassion is one of the most powerful tools we know of to build emotional resilience and to help transform your life for the better. The science tells us that mindful self-compassion brings increased life satisfaction and leads to decreased stress, anxiety, and depression. This course combines a discussion about the evidence on the benefits of self-compassion, myths about self-compassion, guided practices and exercises, along with a recorded Q&A. We had the good fortune of participating in a live workshop with Kristin in Santa Monica, California a number of years ago during a personally challenging time, and can attest to the power of this transformational life skill - -which helps us learn to set aside that critical voice in your head and choose instead to be kind to yourself and to your present-moment experience.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction:  An 8-Week Online Training Course

With Dr. Saki Santorelli and Florence Meleo-Meyer


We cannot say enough about the power of mindfulness as a life skill. We've seen the growth of mindfulness as the most revolutionary development in meditation in the Western world. More and more, we're seeing mindfulness entering the common understanding as a proven tool in health care, psychology, and personal well-being -- as well as being a foundation for spiritual practice. The overwhelming

body of scientific evidence on mindfulness confirms the power of this practice to change our lives. This 8-week online course, offered as a purely secular approach by top teachers at Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn's Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, includes 8 weekly downloadable sessions and a day-long session at the end of the course. It allows you to go at your own pace, and offers support through weekly emails with practice suggestions. Although an in-person course is sometimes preferable, this amazingly high-quality online course, serving as a foundation for your mindfulness knowledge and practice, is the next best thing! You can start anytime.
