In pursuit of a finer state of mind
When you’re stressed or anxious, some of you may find that meditating helps calm you down. For others, taking time off, socializing, traveling, getting a massage, eating a healthy meal or exercising is the way to go. Sometimes, if you’re really having one of those days, you may just need to eat ice cream and watch a movie. Everyone has their own way of dealing with stress and anxiety.
Our mission is to help you pursue what we’re calling “a finer state of mind” by bringing together all of the ideas, products, and best practices to help you do just that in the midst of a stressed-out world.
IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT STRESS
While nearly a quarter of U.S. adults reported they were "under extreme stress" in 2015, the problem actually goes much deeper when it comes to “anxiety”.
Anxiety disorders form a category of mental health diagnoses that cause nervousness, fear, apprehension, worry, and stress.
They manifest in many different ways and have been classified accordingly. You might have heard of them as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety disorder, eating disorders, and even depression.
The statistics are staggering.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting over 44 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 19% of the population last year. (NIMH)
An estimated 31.1% of U.S. adults experience any anxiety disorder at some time in their lives. (NIMH), and anxiety disorders affect 25.1% of children between 13-18.
This is a big, big issue and we want to help.
