Health, Wellness and Launching Headspace
In the pursuit of enhancing the student experience through supporting student-focused health and wellness, the Barnes Center at The Arch has launched Headspace.
As a mobile app wellness leader and through virtual experiences, Headspace helps to create habits supportive of mental health. Complementing the Barnes Center at The Arch Dimensions of Wellness, Headspace further places students in the driver’s seat of their unique health and wellness journeys.
“I believe a big part of college is not only challenging yourself academically but also learning to take care of yourself,” says Yvonne Chen-Yih Kuo ’24, Barnes Center at The Arch peer educator. “Headspace allows students to step back and take time for themselves, to sleep better, while also find opportunities to learn different ways of mindfulness and self care.”
Syracuse University Student Premium Headspace Memberships
Free Headspace premium membership is available to Syracuse University students on a first-come, first-served basis and provides the opportunity to grow availability. Detailed instructions for creating and linking existing accounts are available on the Headspace instructional webpage.
“Oftentimes as a college student I am physically and mentally busy. By using Headspace I have been able to take time to clear my thoughts and practice meditation frequently,” says Tianna Carrington ’23, Barnes Center at The Arch peer educator. “I encourage students to use Headspace as a free “on the go” guide to help with everyday college student stressors.”
Headspace highlights include but are not limited to the following:
- Learn the fundamentals of meditation and mindfulness directly from experts.
- Customizable experiences support managing stress, sleep, self-esteem, focus, movement and more.
- Sleep sounds and bedtime exercises.
