Mindfulness, or the practice of intentional awareness of the present moment, has been proven, again and again, to hold a host of benefits for both mind and body, from reduced anxiety to improved sleep quality and heart health. And when it comes to the mind-body connection, there’s no one more knowledgeable than the pioneer of integrative medicine, Deepak Chopra.

Mindful Method will be available to Fitbit Premium¹ members beginning February 23, with fresh content being added regularly over the coming months.

What’s different about Mindful Method on Fitbit Premium?
In today’s world, we’re more stressed than ever—and we have good reason to be. But we’re also often told that we need to “take control” of our stress. What does that mean, exactly, and how can we do that? “You can definitely take control of your stress,” Deepak shares. “I think if somebody says to me that they don’t have time for meditation even once a day, that tells me that they need it twice a day. And stress is defined as the perception of physical, emotional, or psychological threat.”
“So right now there are many reasons we stress—the pandemic, the financial crisis, there is all this ideological conflict, so if somebody is not stressed they’re lying,” he continues. “And they’re probably more stressed than everybody else. So everyone right now needs help in real-time and we can offer people the tools they need.”
In more than 40 countries worldwide, Fitbit Premium helps you move more, manage stress, sleep better, and eat well with guided programs, advanced analytics, personal insights, and a 30-day view of your important health metrics. Plus, there are hundreds of workouts, motivating games, challenges, and more—and they’re all in one place to help you achieve your goals.²
“Mindfulness can start with simple, everyday actions. My Premium content will offer guided meditation and techniques that focus on the four pillars of wellbeing: mind, body, emotions, and spirit,” says Deepak. “My content draws inspiration from my own mindfulness techniques, which will help encourage you to evaluate and analyze your own state by answering the same questions and following the same thought process that I ask myself daily: Who am I? What do I want? What’s my purpose? What am I grateful for?”
He continues, “Mindful Method simplifies these practices to help you build a more conscious mindfulness practice and implement it into your daily lives and activities in a way that works best for you.”
Together, Deepak Chopra and Fitbit are offering even more guidance and support to help you manage stress and bring mindfulness to your day as an important part of your overall health and well-being, at a time when that is more important than ever.
His deep expertise in mindfulness, combined with our shared belief in the meaningful impact that mindfulness can have on our overall health and wellbeing, make our partnership a natural fit—and we can’t wait to share. Calm your nerves, create clarity in stressful times, cultivate positivity, and uncover your best you by discovering Deepak Chopra’s Mindful Method for Fitbit.
