“It's no secret that on the Internet, Creators often experience burnout and the exhaustion of creation instead of the excitement that comes with it. We're trying to build a better space for Creators at Pinterest, and as an industry, we believe there's an opportunity to prioritize inspiring content by prioritizing inspiring Creators. That’s why we teamed up with Headspace, a global leader in mindfulness and meditation, as the perfect like-minded partner for this first-of-its-kind offering.”
In 28 published studies in some of the leading mindfulness peer-reviewed journals, Headspace has been shown to have favorable outcomes of interventions including reduced stress, improved focus, decreased aggression, reduced burnout, and improved satisfaction with life. More specifically, studies have shown four sessions of Headspace reduced burnout by 14% and ten days of Headspace resulted in 14% decrease in stress and 16% increase in positivity.
Morgan Selzer, Chief Content & Studios Officer at Headspace
“We found that consumers, now more than ever, widely recognize the importance of safeguarding their emotional and mental wellbeing in this complex world, oftentimes dealing with multiple stressors at once. For those who may not know where to begin, Headspace is an excellent resource to help deal with life's stressors in the moment and also for preventive measures. Our collaboration with Pinterest aims to provide creators with simple and engaging tools that can fit seamlessly into their daily lives and help them feel better."
At Pinterest, we deliberately design inspiration into our positive corner of the internet. We have a history of delivering industry-first policies like banning weight loss ads, creating products that prioritize wellbeing like compassionate search, and offering Creator-first programs like the Creator Fund. Our goal is for Creators, the ones with the inspiring ideas— ultimately choose a place that builds them up. We’re proud of this new Headspace partnership as we continue on our journey to build a globally inclusive platform.
