Just One Thing

Just One Thing : Email Archive
"Just One Thing" is the free e-newsletter that suggests a simple practice each week that will bring you more joy, more fulfilling relationships, and more peace of mind and heart.

These practices are grounded in brain science, positive psychology, and contemplative training. They're simple and easy to do - and they produce powerful results.

For example, one practice asks you to take a few minutes each day to notice little things you appreciate or feel grateful for, like the smell of an orange, the smile of a friend, or a sense of your own sincerity and good intentions. This may not sound like much, but research has shown that this practice will lift your mood, protect you against stress, and even strengthen your immune system.

We are so busy these days that it's great to have just one thing to focus on: a simple theme each week to reflect on and be inspired by. These are private practices: no one needs to know you are doing them. Meanwhile, you'll be gradually strengthening your neural pathways of happiness, love, and wisdom.

My latest book is adapted from this newsletter and is titled Just One Thing: Developing a Buddha Brain One Simple Practice at a Time. In the book, I present 52 of my favorite practices - simple actions inside your mind - to light up the neural networks of deep well-being and resilience.

I'm also engaged in a "Year of Practice" following the practices in the book, and each week I'm posting a new, one-minute video where I speak personally about that week's practice at http://justoneminute.net/. I hope you will consider joining me there.

It's the law of little things: a small thing repeated each day adds up over time to produce big results. A small thing that is in your power to do - in a world in which so many things are not. Just one thing that could change your life.
