How Healthy Minds Works

A science-based well-being program that goes beyond mindfulness

Healthy Minds Innovations, the nonprofit affiliate of The Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, has developed a new scientific model of well-being based on decades of research led by world-renowned neuroscientist and New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Richard J. Davidson. Our unique program guides users through the four pillars of training the mind:

Open eye


Train the mind to be calm and focused. Reduce mind-wandering and improve productivity.

Left and right arrow pointing towards one another


Develop the skills to strengthen interpersonal relationships, gratitude, and cooperation.

Lightbulb turned on


Learn how one’s sense-of-self shapes emotions and reactions, and how self-inquiry can decrease stress and emotional reactivity.

Strengthen values and principles and improve physical health and resilience.

Research has shown this program to be effective at improving workplace health and productivity.


Workplace Feedback

The best part for me was when I noticed meditation practice showing up in my daily life without a conscious effort – so rather than scheduling time to do this, it just occurred to me that it was the right thing to do and then experience validated that.

[The program] helped me stay grounded about how I need to tend to my mental health on a daily basis, just like my physical health.

I like the practice and the teaching very much! I appreciate that I can do active practice, which is what I need in my busy day-to-day life. I also like that I can set the number of minutes per practice.

You're in good company
