About Justin Adams
Across 5 continents, 40 countries, and 48 U.S. states, by ship, train, plane, bus, rickshaw, bicycle, camel, and motorcycle, I have sought out experiences that foster insight. My interest in Buddhism and mindfulness began when I lived in South Korea, continued in India, and culminated in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where I lived in a Zen Buddhist temple for two years.
As a curious learner, creative thinker, and compelling storyteller, I help people see the big picture in a way they never have before. By asking powerful questions, I help others make unexpected connections and advance their approach so they can live better, more meaningful lives.
My Approach to Personal Growth
Everything I build lives at the intersection of ancient Eastern wisdom, modern Western science, and my personal experience.
While I’m in love with the wisdom and the science, my aim is to make the things I create as actionable as possible for you.
How My Work Will Benefit You
When I was creating my approach to pursuing personal growth by integrating mindfulness into my everyday life, I interrogated the scientific research. The research makes mindfulness sound like a sufficiently advanced technology that is indistinguishable from magic.
Practicing mindfulness, according to studies cited by the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley, can help you become healthier, wealthier, and wiser.
- reducing your stress,
- helping you sleep better,
- boosting your immune system,
- helping you fight off depression, and
- reducing the chances you’ll give birth prematurely.
Practicing mindfulness, even for just a few weeks, can help you become wealthier by:
- helping you create better relationships,
- making you a more confident and creative leader,
- making you more resilient to negative feedback,
- helping you feel closer to your partner, and
- increasing your firm’s customer satisfaction.
Practicing mindfulness, even for just a few weeks, can help you become wiser by:
- improving your memory,
- improving your decision-making abilities,
- boosting your self-compassion,
- securing your self-esteem, and
- helping you act more in line with your values.
Who wouldn’t pay money for that!?
For those of us who have done meditation retreats or studied mindfulness-based stress reduction, we know firsthand that the benefits of mindfulness are insanely great.
Yet, it can be surprisingly hard to bring mindfulness into everyday life.
According to meditation teacher and mindfulness guru Jack Kornfield, the most frequently asked question by students of meditation is: How do I bring this practice into my daily life?
Why is that?
And what can we do about it?
In everything I do, my goal is to give you simple yet sophisticated ways to integrate mindfulness into your day. Ways that have worked for me. Ways that, according to the science, are highly likely to work for you. Ways you can implement immediately.
