Well Minds

One of the keys to health and happiness is finding the right balance between managing your daily obligations and taking care of your own well-being. While physical fitness is an essential part of self care, emotional health is just as important in helping you feel your best.

That’s where Well Minds comes in. Intuit provides this collection of offerings to help you handle life’s challenges, build resilience and ease your stress.

Why Mindfulness?

Science has shown that regular mindfulness practice can help you:

  • Reduce stress
  • Decrease anxiety
  • Boost creativity
  • Improve focus
  • Strengthen relationships

With Headspace, you can quickly learn how to apply mindfulness to your everyday activities. With a large collection of sessions to choose from, you can always find the perfect exercise to fit your mood and interests.

Meditation isn’t rocket science, but if you want to build a rocket, it’s a good place to start.
