Science at Headspace

Our goal is to improve the health and happiness of the world — but the only way to know if we’re truly accomplishing that is to measure, test, and study it. That’s where our research comes in.

Our Approach - Headspace Science

The most science-backed meditation app

Research has been an integral part of Headspace since day one. We see meditation as both a practice rooted in ancient history and a topic of modern science — which is why we’re just as dedicated to studying it as we are to sharing it with the world.

Studies show: Headspace works

There are thousands of studies that have shown mindfulness and meditation can positively impact mental and physical health, whether it’s by reducing stress, improving sleep, increasing focus, or improving relationships. The proof is in the science: Headspace can make a big impact on people’s lives — and it doesn’t take long to see the benefits.
