The 44 Training Program from Leo Babauta of Zen Habits

A long time reader and big fan of zenhabits.net, I recently completed a free series of video trainings that Leo Babauta offered to his audience in celebration of his 44th birthday.

The 44 Training Program: Turning Uncertainty to Find Mindful Openness – is an email series of practices. When you signup, you will begin to receive emails sharing content around 11 mindfulness practices. The emails are timed in a progression to allow you to work through each of the 11 practices for 5-10 minutes per day. So the entire 44 Training Program lasts for 44 days. Everyone has 5-10 minutes per day to try something like this, so it’s a very minimal time investment with a potentially enormous reward.

Here are the stated goals and benefits of the program (from zenhabits.net):

  • Overcome uncertainty, anxiety, fear, discomfort and procrastination
  • Find peace, mindful openness, gratitude and joy
  • Transform your difficulties and pain into growth and beauty
  • Overcome any struggle you’re having right now

Since I enjoyed this series so much and found Leo’s videos so helpful, I wanted to go back and return to this practice on my own. So I’ve made a helpful list of the links to each of the 11 practices below for easy reference.

I do encourage anyone interested in this program to signup via email to get the full impact of timed reminders and a lot of great supportive content and advice along the way as you progress.

Thank you Leo for this amazing series!
