Struggling to find peace and harmony in a fast-paced world?


30-Day Mindfulness Challenge


30-Day Mindfulness Challenge

Hey! I know you landed on this page because you want to more fully connect to peace.

As an additional gift for joining this challenge, enjoy a free inner peace coaching call with me!

Committing to 30 days of mindfulness can have a profoundly positive impact on an individual’s life. There is more than one way to practice mindfulness, but the goal of any mindfulness technique is to achieve a state of alert, focused relaxation by deliberately paying attention to this precious present moment and establishing moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens, without judgement.

According to Jon Kabbat-Zinn who did much of the early research on the effectiveness of mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts, there are seven key attitudes of mindfulness which include:



Be an impartial witness to your own experience. Become aware of the constant stream of judging and reacting to inner and outer experience.



A form of wisdom, patience demonstrates that we accept the fact that things sometimes unfold in their own time.

Beginner’s Mind

Remaining open and curious allows us to be receptive to new possibilities and prevents us from getting stuck in the rut of our own expertise.


Develop a basic trust with yourself and your feelings. Know it’s OK to make mistakes.


The goal is to be with yourself right here, right now. Pay attention to what is unfolding without trying to change anything.


See things as they are. This sets the stage for acting appropriately in your life no matter what is happening.

Letting Go

When we pay attention to our inner experience, we discover there are certain thoughts, emotions, and situations the mind wants to hold onto. Let your experience be what it is right now.

“The power of now can only be realized through the practice of presence.”

– Ekhart Tolle

By committing to 30 days of mindfulness, individuals can begin to cultivate this practice of presence and experience the many benefits that come with it. My hope is that by sharing this challenge, you will be able to improve the overall quality of your life and make mindfulness and life-long practice so that you can experience a greater sense of peace, and joy, increase resilience, and navigate life with greater ease.

Here are three major ways that committing to a 30-day mindfulness practice can make people better humans in this fast-paced, high-stress world.

1. Improved Mental Health

One of the most significant benefits of mindfulness practice is its impact on mental health.

Mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. By practicing mindfulness, people can learn to control their thoughts and emotions, reducing negative feelings and increasing positive emotions. As Deepak Chopra said, “Mindfulness meditation is not a fad or a hobby. It’s a science-backed tool for cultivating calm and clarity in your life.”

2. Increased Self-Awareness

Another powerful benefit of mindfulness practice is the increased self-awareness it brings. By practicing mindfulness, people can learn to identify their thoughts and emotions more clearly.

This can help them make better decisions, improve their relationships, and live more authentically. Davidji, a mindfulness teacher, said, "Mindfulness is about being in the present moment, connecting with your inner self, and cultivating a sense of peace and harmony within yourself."

3. Greater Compassion and Empathy

Finally, mindfulness practice can help people develop greater compassion and empathy for others. By learning to control their thoughts and emotions, people can become more aware of the impact they have on others. This can lead to greater empathy and understanding, making them better friends, partners, and coworkers. As Gandhi said, "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."

Committing to a 30-day mindfulness practice will have a profound impact on your life. By improving your mental health, increasing self-awareness, and developing greater compassion and empathy, you will become a better human in this fast-paced, high-stress world.

As Deepak Chopra said, “Mindfulness is a way of being, a way of living, and a way of experiencing the world that leads to greater peace, happiness, and fulfillment.” And don’t you crave peace, happiness, and fulfillment? I know I did when I began my own mindfulness journey.

What You Get


Journal Pages

Before beginning your 30-day challenge, I invite you to start with the mindfulness journey journal page and describe how you are feeling most days, what hurts, what is constricted within your body, how your stress and anxiety levels are, and why you have chosen to participate in the challenge. I ask that you journal briefly about your 30-day journey 4 different times; before you begin, on days 10, 20, and 30 so that you can monitor your progress and celebrate your growth. The guided journal pages are included as part of your gift!

Mindfulness Practices Menu

Also included in the Thrive Farm 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge PDF is a menu of 30 mindfulness practices that I have cultivated and practiced and may be used in any order that suits your life. You may use one of these practices daily for thirty days, or you can choose a different one each day. Perhaps you may choose 3 that you love and rotate through them daily.

These ideas provide a springboard for you to choose from, amend, or add to from various other resources. Based on research, I recommend that you engage in your mindfulness practice for 8-25 minutes per day. Various studies support a minimum of 8 minutes to 25 minutes practicing mindfulness, to realize maximum benefit from the practice. I have included a video with the 30-day mindfulness table explaining the various recommended practices.

30-Day Calendar

Along with the guided journal pages, supporting video and mindfulness practice recommendations, there is a 30-day calendar for you to record the practice you choose each day of the month. I recommend jotting your chosen practice in each accompanying calendar box and adding two simply drawn emojis to reflect your feelings both before and after your daily practice.


My Story

Mindfulness played a major role in my healing journey while recovering from breast cancer in 2020, double mastectomies, and reconstruction. My cancer diagnosis led to an awakening that I was in a toxic marriage to a grandiose narcissist, had lost myself, was disconnected from passion and purpose, and found I was living an untethered existence of people pleasing. No one around me was authentic or even happy. I ended up depressed, scared, and confused.

Not really knowing what to do, I started my wellness and healing journey by spending a lot of time in nature, signing up for things such as a mindfulness class, tai chi, yoga, equine therapy, talk therapy, and listening to a ton of self-help books. I became certified as an equine therapist and as a mindfulness-meditation teacher. I was also accepted into a master’s degree program at my local university in clinical mental health counseling. I wanted to not only heal but help others who found themselves in an existential crisis after multiple traumas and living in stress
response. I started Thrive Farm to create a healing space for my people and offer mindfulness, coaching, equine therapy, breakthrough weekends, and healing retreats.

I am still working on my second master’s degree in counseling, and I am a 20-year veteran public school teacher. My experiences and personal trauma, along with my education and intentions, have led me to my passion and purpose of helping people like you heal and recover through research-based techniques that cultivate homeostasis, peace, and joy in those I serve.
