The university has partnered with Headspace to provide mindfulness and mental health tools for employees. All benefit-eligible employees now have access to the entire Headspace library and smartphone app at no cost to them.
Mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress, increase focus and improve sleep. Meditation helps to be more mindful and Headspace is a personal guide with hundreds of meditations and exercises for sleep, focus and movement. Expert guidance is provided by Headspace founder and former monk Andy Puddicombe to teach the fundamentals of meditation and mindfulness in a variety or areas.
