YOUR 10 MINUTES OF ZEN
Digital health is exploding – an estimated $2.8B was used to fund digital health startups last year. And everywhere we turn, we’re discovering a new startup that offers an on-demand or DIY service to amplify traditional healthcare options. From Blink, a startup disrupting optometry by bringing the vision test to your home or office, to Spruce, a mobile app allowing patients to communicate with a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment right from their phone, digital health startups are making our lives easier and better.
But let’s not forget our mental health. Headspace is a free app that wants you to "treat your head right." Gaining momentum and mainstream success with $30M in funding received last September, they’re changing the stigma attached to meditation outside of the yoga studio. Not only do they advocate internal wellness, Headspace is part of the "get some/give some" program. Every time someone subscribes to their regime, someone in need receives a subscription.
Watch their video below to understand how they work and the science behind it all.
When it comes to partnering with brands - not only can enterprises leverage Headspace as a service to teach their high-strung employees a thing or two about the "art of chill,” but hotel brands like Marriott could benefit by offering tools for Zen during your business trip.
The applications are endless, from stressing in your office or your classroom, everyone could benefit from a little Zen.
