The backbone of the Mindstrength 30 Challenge is based on three main schools of thought: Evolutionary Psychology, Social Neuroscience, and Positive Psychology. Together these theoretical foundations lay the ground work for understanding what motivates humans and how to apply that knowledge. Our brains are designed for survival not happiness, so the best we can hope for is to understand the mental machine nature has given us and find loopholes into contentment. Too often people focus on the foreground symptoms in their lives and forget to dig deeper into the background root causes. Therefore, the Mindstrength 30 Challenge peels back the layers and helps you become the best version of yourself.



People tend to forget that we are human beings, not human “doings.” The Mindstrength 30 Challenge seeks to rebalance your lifestyle to take away some of the gas pedal and add a little more brake. Through meditation and mindfulness exercises, the Mindstrength Project regulates the hamster wheel of thoughts that intrude into our everyday lives. Learning how to redirect our attention while having a conversation with our minds and bodies is paramount. Meditation is the cornerstone that may help improve the quality of your life and bring about peace of mind.



Life is just plain better when your moving. Learning is essential for change but when you combine new information with active engagement its like giving your memory steroids. The body needs movement to create new brain cells, through neurogenesis, but if those new cells don’t attach to new information they die. Getting your heart rate up and teaching your body how to break old patterns, delay gratification, and cope with stress is the bedrock of what it takes to have Mindstrength. Too often we focus on what is going wrong in our lives without giving much attention to possible solutions.
