Headspace is now free for unemployed people and health care workers in the US
Headspace is a service that provides instruction for meditation and mental health exercises. With over 10 million installs in the Google Play Store, it’s one of the most popular apps in this genre. A lot of people may feel stressed and anxious in these times, which is why Headspace is offering its content for free to unemployed people and health care workers in the US.
If you are recently unemployed, all you have to do is fill out a form on the Headspace website. The form will ask for your name, where you previously worked, your role, the industry, last date of employment, and ZIP code. There is a checkbox to verify the information is true, but this is basically running on the honor system. Health care workers can learn more about getting free access here.
Once enrolled, you will get full access to all of the Headspace content, which usually costs $70 per year or $13 per month. The offer is only available until June 30th and the access lasts for a year. Here’s what you get with Headspace:
- Hundreds of guided meditations on everything from stress to sleep
- Over 40 mindfulness exercises for cooking, eating, commuting and more
- Super-short meditations you can do anytime. Great for busy schedules.
- Expert guidance from former monk, and Headspace co-founder, Andy Puddicombe
- Sleep Sounds to ease the mind into a truly restful night’s sleep
- Fun, simple animations to help you with your meditation practice and answer any questions you might have
