Develop a Peak Mind

We can train our attention to improve brain power, mood, and performance—and we can do it in as little as 12 minutes a day.

Interested? Living Well has teamed up with Dr. Amishi Jha to help you develop a Peak Mind. The resources below are open to everyone! No registration is required.  Why not encourage your friends and family to join you?

Best-selling author and neuroscientist Dr. Amishi Jha is back with two events in May.

Join us to learn how paying attention can increase energy and focus. Spoiler alert: it all takes practice, and practice can be hard to maintain. That’s why Living Well at Home has teamed up with Dr. Jha to teach you the mindfulness techniques that help increase performance in high stress, high stakes environments – and in everyday life.

Peak Mind: Dr. Amishi Jha on Sharpening Attention and Boosting Mood

Wednesday, May 1, 1:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
When we’re trying to focus on a task, get a job done, or fully engage with the people in our lives, distraction becomes more than a challenge—it can impact our mood, making everything feel a little bit harder…and a little bit less joyful. In this interactive Q&A session, Dr. Jha will introduce simple practices anyone can do to sharpen attention and boost mood.

  • Meet Dr. Amishi Jha

    Dr. Amishi Jha is the director of Contemplative Neuroscience and Professor of Psychology at the University of Miami. Dr. Jha leads research on the effects of mindfulness-based training programs on corporate leaders, elite athletes, first responders, the U.S. military and many others who must perform in high stakes environments. Her work shows how attention can be trained to improve brain power, mood and performance in just 12 minutes a day. But you don’t have to be in a high-pressure, high-stress profession to benefit from developing a Peak Mind.
