Even though 2021 is here, the coronavirus pandemic still ongoing, and it’s giving us a feeling of déjà vu. It’s taking a toll on everyone’s mental health, and while running is a helpful stress reliever for many of us, it’s important to take time for emotional health as well.

On February 23, Fitbit announced a partnership with Deepak Chopra, M.D., Founder of The Chopra Foundation to create Deepak Chopra’s Mindful Method, which is a wellness collection created exclusively for Fitbit Premium members.

Fitbit Premium, which was given an honorable mention for best app in the Runner’s World fitness award for its 360-degree wellness capabilities, gives members get access to workout plans for any goal, including weekly workouts, guidance for better sleep, nutrition, and now, meditation and mindfulness. (You can access a free 90-day trial here.)

The Mindful Method features audio and video sessions led by Chopra, and is designed to help you with mindfulness, sleep, stress management, mental wellness and the mind-body connection, according to a press release.

The collection launched on February 23 with 10 audio and video sessions, and will eventually feature over 30. Each session is less than 20 minutes, making it a perfect way to take a break from your screen, start your day, or follow a run.

Most Fitbits—including the Fitbit Sense, which was featured in the Runner’s World fitness awards as the best GPS watch for Android Users—come with built-in guided breathing to help you take a moment for yourself during the day. The Mindful Method will help further boost your mental health check-ins.
