our team

Work and life can feel relentless, like we're under more and more pressure all the time, from all sides. This stress leaves many of us questioning what really matters.

What if we've been focused on the wrong things?

Our team believes you deserve to end every year feeling better than where you started.

The research is clear: when it comes to your well-being and happiness, it's actually small, daily habits that create lifelong impact.

At Year of Living Better®, we understand that lasting change doesn’t happen overnight. 

We leave "living your best life" tropes to inspirational posters. We believe the true goal is to build a better personal baseline, day by day.

Our mission is to provide training and support that can help anyone create habits that matter, starting with a regular meditation practice.

Does our vision sound like one you share—for yourself, or the people who make up your organization?

Let us show you how we can help your team get started on living better.
