You know what they say: 'take care of your body, it's the only place where you have to live'.

We love this quote and would add — take care of your mind, too.

We believe that our minds have so much power, they hold the key to achieving our goals. But to access this power we need to tap into what makes our minds tick and, in a sense, become its master. This is where a plant-powered, health-driven lifestyle comes to play...

            My favourite part was the cooking. I had eaten a lot of vegan food before but it was often quite unhealthy, so it was great to learn how to make healthy plant based recipes. I really liked a lot of the breakfast recipes as there were so many different varieties. I really liked the Q&A's as even though I didn't ask any questions, it was really useful to hear others' questions that I hadn't even thought of and the lads or Gerry's answers.
            So much to choose from, meditation, breathe work, yoga on top of all the other content. I really enjoyed it. I was always a bit afraid of going plant based, I was always afraid of thinking I would miss eggs or dairy but it was such a revelation for me to see I didn't. There were so much options and variety. Focusing on less screen time really resonated as well. I learned so much and hope to keep it up.
            Going wholefood plant based is the best thing that ever happened to me. For me it's a no brainer. I don't have the lows anymore, my emotions used to be up and down, now I feel far more calm. My sleep is so much better, my mood is so much better, I used to eat so much dairy and it shocks me the difference since giving it up...
            ... Everyone is in this together. When you are opening yourself up you need a safe environment and that is what the Happy Mind was.

            Is it ok to have alcohol on the challenge? I have a few social events coming up.
            We generally advise anyone going to the effort of doing this challenge to eliminate alcohol but it's not the be all and end all. If alcohol makes you eat more veg then the odd glass of Rioja is fine by us! Just be mindful of the foods you're craving the day after alcohol intake. Keep them whole-food and plant-based, and you'll be grand.
            How long will I have access for?
            You will have access to the challenge content for the duration of the challenge – 4 weeks + 2 weeks to revisit the materials.
            Is there a practical element to the challenge?
            There is a companion workbook which goes along with the challenge to help you answer questions and keep you on track.
            Is the challenge suitable for coeliacs?
            Gluten containing foods present on The Happy Mind Challenge can be replaced with gluten-free options or omitted completely.
            Do I need to follow along live?
            The challenge notes can be accessed at whatever time suits you and it is a self-led challenge, so you do not need to follow along live.
            When does the challenge start?
            The challenge starts on November 1st – World Vegan Day .However, the challenge could be self-led, once it begins, so you can access the challenge content at any point in time.

            This means that you can do it when it suits you. You also have an additional 2 weeks of access to your Challenge Content after it ends, so you have extra time to complete it.
            Learn how to feel at home within your own mind & body — and journey through every day with ease.
