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.
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.
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.
Published studies, external scientists, prestigious research organizations, and our science team have shown that Headspace can improve mental, emotional, and social health. We’re partnering with renowned national institutions on studies that could be some of the largest meditation trials ever conducted.
Headspace has a large network of research collaborators to advance the scientific evidence of Headspace and the mindfulness and mental health fields.
