Catch Your Breath: One Year of Headspace, Available for SSVMS Members
Greetings!

When you’re busy caring for others, it’s easy to forget about your own mental health. Studies show meditation helps reduce stress and burnout in health professionals, while boosting happiness, compassion, resilience and satisfaction.   To help you reduce stress and burnout, SSVMS is proud to gift our physician members with a free one-year subscription to the meditation and mindfulness app, Headspace.  
 
Headspace is meditation made simple and has been shown to reduce stress and increase focus and happiness in just a few minutes a day. Headspace has bite-sized meditations for busy schedules, SOS exercises for tough situations, and hundreds of guided meditations on everything from sports to anxiety to kids and parenting. You’ll also have access to Sleep by Headspace — sleep music, soundscapes, and sleepcasts aimed at creating the perfect conditions for a restful night’s sleep.
