You’ve heard about all the ways meditation can help improve your overall health and well-being. You’ve probably even tried it once or twice and are wondering, “Now what?” This accessible 28-day program of meditation and mindfulness exercises offers a powerful practice to promote personal growth, kindness, and connection to your authentic self.

Amanda Gilbert introduces the traditional Buddhist heart practices known as the brahma-viharas—loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy, and equanimity. With each practice, you will learn how to be more resilient in the face of common stressors and triggers in everyday life, including anxiety, feelings of depression, imposter syndrome, and social media comparison effects—and will be inspired to make meditation an essential part of your daily life and self-care practice.
