Fitbit recently announced a partnership with Deepak Chopra, M.D., Pioneer of Integrative Medicine, and Founder of The Chopra Foundation and Chopra Global to launch Deepak Chopra’s Mindful Method, an exclusive wellness collection created and curated for Fitbit Premium members to make a mindfulness practise more accessible to people worldwide. Mindful Method is designed to help users improve their emotional wellbeing as an important part of overall health, featuring audio and video sessions led by Deepak Chopra on impactful, relevant themes like mindfulness, sleep, stress management, mental wellness and the mind-body connection.
The new collection expands the existing mindfulness and stress management offerings from Fitbit, continuing to help give users a complete view of their holistic health to understand how each aspect fits together to impact overall wellbeing.
“Partnering with Deepak Chopra is a natural fit as we are both committed to giving people the guidance and support that they need to improve their emotional and physical wellbeing, especially as we continue to persevere through the stressful, uncertain times that we are living in,” said James Park, VP, GM & Co- founder of Fitbit. “We are proud to bring his expertise as an influential, world-renowned leader in mindfulness and integrative health and wellbeing to our Premium members as we work to achieve ourmission to make everyone in the world healthier through a holistic approach to health and wellness.”
The collection launches with 10 audio and video sessions, including guided meditations, sessions to prepare for restful sleep, and techniques to help cultivate happiness and optimism whenever you need. The collection will expand over the coming months, with dozens more custom sessions including:
- A focus on mindfulness for total wellbeing, detailing the benefits of meditation based on Deepak Chopra’s four pillars: mind, body, emotions and spirit.
- How to incorporate mindfulness throughout your day, from setting the tone each morning, a pick-me-up during a stressful workday, resetting a bad mood, and preparing for restful sleep.
- Deeper guidance for using mindfulness as a tool to build awareness, manage stress and emotions, and build concentration.
“For more than 50 years, I have studied the mind and body functioning as a single unit. I share Fitbit’s belief that mindfulness and mental wellbeing are critical centerpieces of your health that are interconnected with physical wellbeing and other aspects like building immunity against illness, your activity and energy levels, how well you sleep, what you nourish your body with, and how you manage your personal relationships,” said Deepak Chopra, M.D., Pioneer of Integrative Medicine and Founder of The Chopra Foundation and Chopra Global.
“As a long-time Fitbit user, I am thrilled to share my mindfulness philosophy and practices to help anyone around the world establish and maintain a mindfulness practice no matter if you are just starting out or have been practising for years. Meditation is a learned, and sometimes intimidating, a habit that is most effective when practised consistently, similar to an exercise routine, and has profound results on your health.”
