What if, in under 2 minutes a day, you could hardwire an unshakeable sense of contentment, self-worth, and peace of mind into your brain?

In this new online program, New York Times bestselling author and leading expert on positive neuroplasticity, Dr. Rick Hanson, offers 57 brief practices that strengthen the neural networks of deep well-being and resilience.

This program gives you just one thing to focus on each day to gradually change your brain for the better so you can handle the stresses and challenges of everyday life with greater ease, inner strength, and confidence.

“These are great practices – wise and straightforward, scientific and nourishing.
They can transform your life.”

–Jack Kornfield, Ph.D., author of The Wise Heart, A Path with Heart

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program for everyone?

The Just One Minute program is meant for the general public, with special benefits for coaches, counselors, educators, healthcare professionals, and human resources trainers. In a nutshell, yes, it’s for everyone!

However, as with all of Rick Hanson’s online programs, Just One Minute is an educational program, not psychotherapy or treatment for physical or mental health conditions, coaching, or mindfulness training. But it could be a useful adjunct to these, as well as to human resources training, classes in self-compassion or stress management, and informal personal growth practices such as meditation.

The Just One Minute program could be a useful resource for normal range experiences of anxiety, blue mood, stress, loneliness, and interpersonal conflict, including for people in psychotherapy for these concerns. If you are in psychotherapy while engaging the Just One Minute program, please tell your therapist.

Is this a self-paced program, or do I need to watch it at a specific time?

This is a self-paced program that you can do at any time and in any order. That being said, the program includes weekly encouragement emails that will highlight a different practice each week as a friendly suggestion.

Do I need any special technology to participate?

All you need is an internet connection, and a computer, tablet, or phone with a browser.
