Zapchen: Mindfulness Tools for Feeling Good

Remember when you were a child, bored of being in line at the grocery store and a grown up told you to be still? Your instincts told you jiggling would help you get through that moment.

Guess what? Jiggling can help you get through difficult adult moments too!

Explore playful, simple things you can do to improve your well-being through a practice called Zapchen. Zapchen is a Tibetan word for playful. We present a collection of exercises that offer immediate and lasting relief from stress, anxiety, depression, worry and other common challenges of being human. Many of the exercises are things you did as a child: horse lips, jiggling, talking funny and patticake. It sounds silly but that’s the point. The belief behind these “feel good” tools is that people are born with the tools that help us function healthily then we are taught to stop doing them by adults.

These exercises activate various organs and neurotransmitters (i.e. endorphins) in your body that changes your physiology. Practicing these tools as little as 5 minutes a day can lead to profound, long-term change.
