Snapchat launches two new meditations on Headspace Mini

Snapchat has teamed up with Headspace to offer two new meditations to coincide with World Mental Health Day (10.10.20).

The Snapchat Mini in-App mediation experience with Headspace went live this summer, and sees mindfulness experts give free meditation sessions daily.

The two new meditations, which last around six minutes each, will be guided by Headspace’s Director of Meditation, Eve Lewis.

One his called 'Choose Kindness' , which is "designed to shift our mindset and move to a place of compassion", and the second, 'Take on the School Year', is "focused on navigating uncertainty at school".

The Headspace Mini meditations are designed to support the mental health and wellbeing on users of the platform.

A survey by research company GroupSolver for Snap found that one-third of Snapchatters in the US and one-fifth of Snapchatters in the UK and France use meditation to cope with stress.

Lewis said: “World Mental Health Day is recognised annually, and if this year has taught us anything, it's that mental health is just as important as our physical health.

“At Headspace, we believe that taking a small amount of time each day to take care of your mind can have a huge impact on your overall mental wellbeing. Even though we are separated from friends and family, meditation reminds us that we are all a part of a shared human experience. This is why we are so happy to deepen our partnership with Snap, so we can continue to bring the benefits of meditation and mindfulness to a younger generation.”
