Dr. Mark Atkinson wants you to acknowledge that life has gifted you with a body and mind for the duration of your time here on this rock hurtling through space.

And how do you honor and show gratitude for a gift that you appreciate?

You take care of it!

A lot of the growing biohacking and self-development communities tend to focus on taking care of the physical body, but that’s just our vehicle through the human experience — it’s critically important that we also take care of our mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

That’s why Dr. Atkinson, founder of the Human Potential Institute, travels around the world teaching the world’s top performers how to manage and optimize their mind, wellbeing, and effectiveness through psychological fitness training.

Today, Dr. Atkinson will teach you how to start a psychological fitness practice, working with your body and mind in a way that allows you to serve life and for life to creatively move through your cells. It all starts by tuning up your body-mind vehicle, but real progress and development only comes when you delve into the psychological, the spiritual, or what Dr. Atkinson simply calls life.
