It's easy to feel distracted.

Like we are busy but not getting anywhere.

When this happens, we need to get to the source of our restlessness.

For us, a big source of tension comes from being surrounded by a single message of how life should be lived.

From our commutes crowded with billboards, to the advertisements interrupting our favorite TV shows, to the banner ads we try to ignore as we surf the web — these are all subtly (and sometimes not so subtly) telling us a story of how we should live.

The things we need to buy to be happy.

The ways we need to look to be beautiful.

The jobs we need to have to be successful.

The truth is, we know deep down inside what we need to flourish in our brief yet beautiful lives.

To solve this problem is simple and it just takes a moment.

A moment to reflect.

To ask ourselves the important questions and set our true intentions.

To define success on our own terms.

Our Themes

Distilled from our Manifesto, positive psychology, the science of mindfulness, and ancient philosophic studies we have identified twelve themes core to living both fully and mindfully. We mapped these twelve themes to each of the twelve months in a year. Together with our community we explore one each month.
