It’s no secret that the last few years have had a devastating effect on Americans’ mental health.
The coronavirus pandemic was the trigger, but it’s not the only factor at play. Stock market volatility has affected finances, millions of Americans lost their jobs over the past two years, and global conflict like the Russia-Ukraine war has only added to the pressure.
It’s why Headspace Health CEO Russell Glass is encouraging everyone to consider meditation.
“We think about meditation like we think about brushing our teeth: You don’t brush your teeth because you have a problem, you brush your teeth because you are trying to prevent tooth problems,” Glass said on Yahoo Finance Live (video above). “Meditation can help when you have huge drops in the Dow or you have global pandemics and changes. Being prepared for that by taking care of your brain can work wonders.”
