Just One Minute offers a collection of short videos, in which Rick Hanson speaks personally about each of the 52 practices that appear in his book, Just One Thing. Each video introduces a practice, and offers some questions for reflection, opportunities for comments, and often other resources. The collection forms a “year of practice” and you are invited to participate!

The practices – simple actions inside your mind – light up neural networks of deep well-being and resilience. And because “neurons that fire together, wire together,” each time you do a practice, it strengthens key neural circuits like building a muscle in the gym.

Each practice is grounded in modern neuroscience, positive psychology, Rick’s background in the very real world of business and raising a family. Each video introduces a new practice, explains why it’s important, and shows you how to do it.

We are so busy these days that it’s great to have just one thing to focus on to make your life better. Practice is not some flabby, airy-fairy mumbo-jumbo – it takes grit and honest work – you earn the results, and can respect yourself for them.
