Anxiety has a ripple affect

Childhood anxiety impacts every aspect of growing up from general health to education. It costs the US health system over $3 billion every year.  We know mindfulness helps reduce anxiety,  but it’s not always easy to be mindful, especially if you’re a teenager.

Especially right now (April 7, 2020).

Take-Pause heals the mind

We can all do with some peace right now, and that’s especially true for growing brains.  At Take-Pause we’ve built a system that focuses the brain and creates mental space. We’re giving teens a double dose of calm by combining mindfulness with virtual reality. 

We call it health by stealth.
