Pods inspired by geological forms encourage dedication to relaxation

Finding the time and space to meditate can prove difficult, especially in an age where most people find it hard to disconnect from their devices. Founded in 2010, Headspace focuses on encouraging users to make meditation a daily practice in their lives—even if just for a few minutes each day.
