The eM Life One Percent Challenge Inspires and Rewards Mindfulness

Share Article

eM Life motivates participants to set aside 14 minutes each day for mindfulness practice to make lifestyle changes and maintain healthy new habits in the New Year, just in time for “Ditch Your New Year’s Resolutions Day”

The 1% Challenge

"By sharing a new skill every day, in both live and on demand sessions, our community has discovered a highly engaging resource to support a happier, more resilient life."

eMindful, the leader in mindfulness programs and mental health awareness, has launched their 3rd Annual “1% Challenge.” The 1% Challenge offers 30 days of free, live, guided mindfulness sessions online led by over 40 of eMindful’s expert instructors.

Participants are challenged to put just 1% of each day—14 minutes—toward building healthier habits in small, manageable behavior changes using practical skills of applied mindfulness.

“Big changes often begin with small steps,” said Zev Suissa, eMindful's Chief Innovation Officer. “Many of us try to instantly jump from our current self to our desired self – these 180 degree behavioral shifts don’t work well. The 1% Challenge makes it easier to establish lasting transformation by sharing a new mindfulness skill every single day, in short form sessions available from your phone, tablet or PC. By sharing a new skill every day, in both live and on demand sessions, our community has discovered a highly engaging resource to support a happier, more resilient life.”

Participants may register for their free, personal 30-day challenge any time between January 1st to January 31st. Once registered, participants receive daily online access to live daily classes featuring new topics, hundreds of hours of on demand content, progress and activity tracking, game, meditation timer and more. “We learned January 17th is Ditch Your New Year’s Resolutions Day, and we couldn’t let that pass without sharing a simple way to stay connected to being your best self."

eMindful has partnered with several charities including Mental Health America, the Mardy Fish Foundation, and Wellness for Cancer to share mindfulness programs with others. For every minute of mindfulness practiced during the 1% Challenge, eMindful will donate cash and mindful minutes to these charities.

Participants in the 1% Challenge can earn rewards for meeting challenge goals thanks to generous partner sponsors including; HYLETE, a community-driven, premium performance apparel brand; Misfit, a brand driven by the will to inspire change and improve lives; C.H.I.L, an organization focusing on creating a world for kids to live healthfully, especially in low-income neighborhoods; Mindful Magazine, a non-profit dedicated to inspiring, guiding, and connecting anyone who wants to explore mindfulness; and SpaFinder, a company that gives people the tools to focus on their well-being all year round.
