Online meditation app offers free access to health professionals

This month Headspace, a guided meditation and mindfulness app, began offering health care professionals free access to its content. In addition to short guided meditations, the app includes information about the benefits of meditating, breathing exercises to reduce stress, and guidance on mindfulness and relaxation. Providers must enter their National Provider Identifiers to redeem their subscriptions. The company says it wants to support overburdened health care professionals during a challenging time.
