40 Million adults in the U.S. are affected by anxiety disorders - 18% of the population - much of which is caused by work. Living with anxiety due to workplace stressors is enormously common in today’s workforce, made even more extreme due to the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Healthy Minds Innovation has a free app to help combat these symptoms. The free app, has a combination of podcast-style lessons and both seated and active meditations, which allow you to learn what the science says about the brain while developing skills to tap into these learnings for a healthier, happier you. Additionally, Healthy Minds @Work, a program goes beyond mindfulness and actually helps employees train their minds to be more calm and focused, develop healthier relationships with colleagues, gain perspective in workplace interactions, and bring more meaning to work. Both programs are backed by science. HMI has proven that contemplative practices like meditation, can help you better yourself.
