Relax – (mindfulness, just one minute at a time)

Rick Hanson, whose work really delights me, now has a youtube channel with Just One Minute practices. They are simple and straight forward tips, making mindfulness practice a part of every minute of our lives. That is how it’s supposed to be, but it’s so often taught in ways that make people think it’s not something they can do. It’s for other people. But that’s just not true. It’s for everyone who is at all drawn to it! Start with just one minute at a time.



Rick Hanson also has a book that is a collection of small everyday and every moment practices to build our “Buddha Brain:” Again, I love the simplicity of the exercises and that you do them while living your life.  Just One Thing: Developing A Buddha Brain One Simple Practice at a Time

I get his Just One Thing newsletter to my email weekly. They’re simple thoughts and practices that one can add to their lives one at a time.

Rick Hanson posts many of his brief practices at WildMind too if you don’t want to get another email coming to your inbox go there.
