Get Some Headspace

In 2016, Carnegie Mellon University was one of the first institutions of higher education to offer all current students, faculty and staff a free subscription to Headspace, a meditation, movement, sleep and focus app with more than 1000+ hours of content.

Meditation and mindfulness have been shown to help people stress less, focus more and even sleep better. Headspace is one tool for mindful living. 

If you have never meditated before, Headspace has a 10-day beginner’s course called the Basics that will teach you the essentials of meditation. You can also explore a variety of themes such as health, sleep, work and performance, and Headspace Pro.

Access Headspace

  1. Redeem a Headspace subscription if you're a current Carnegie Mellon community member.

  2. Then download the Headspace app to your phone from the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store.

  3. Log in with your Andrew email address to receive the free subscription.
