Lift Project FAQs

What topics do the lessons cover?

The Lift Project involves 10 fascinating lessons that take you on an educational adventure. Each lesson introduces a scientifically proven way to lift your mood and your life from the exciting fields of Neuroscience, Positive Psychology and Lifestyle Medicine.

The lesson titles are:

“Your limbo is listening” (speak positively) – Say hello to your ‘Limbo’ (the nickname for your Limbic System), which is your ’emotional brain’, also in charge of motivation, memory, and many automatic bodily processes.  Learn why how you speak to yourself and others influences how you feel and how you can increase your speech positivity ratio.

“Motion creates emotion” (move dynamically) – You have millions of nerves distributed throughout your body called ‘proprioceptors’ that tell your Limbo how you are moving.  Learn how to give your Limbo a lift by moving dynamically!

“Blue and green should often be seen” (immerse in an uplifting physical environment) – What’s so great about the great outdoors?  In this lesson discover why it is so uplifting to get outside where the light is right.

“Together feels better” (immerse in an uplifting social environment) – Happiness is socially contagious.  Find out why and ways you can make it happen.

“Feelings follow your focus” (look to the positive) – Want to discover a simple technique for boosting your emotional wellbeing for the next 6 months?  Learn how in this lesson as you discover ways to look to the positive in the past, present, and future.

“Food feeds your mood” (eat nutritiously) – One of the most fascinating areas of current medical research has led to the discovery that your gut is your ‘second brain.’  If you want to be happy, you need a happy gut, and in this lesson, you discover the magic ingredient for making it so.

“Rest to feel your best” (sleep) – Most people are sleep deprived and are suffering for it.  In this lesson learn the cure for the three sleep-stealing culprits of our time.

“Stress less” (de-stress) – Do you need to turn down the heat and open the valves of stress?  Learn how in this lesson as well as what might be the most powerful and profound way to establish work-life balance.

“Living is giving” (serve) – You have a unique contribution to make, and doing it can fill your life in every way.  This lesson will show you how.

“What does it take to flourish?” – There are five things you need in life to flourish.  Discover what they are in this lesson.  Do all five to thrive.
