The power of the quantified mind

Mindfulness 2.0 is in full swing. It is a trend that extends beyond the success of individual apps dedicated to mental wellbeing, such as Headspace.

Consumers are taking a more holistic approach to wellbeing, and research reveals a substantial appetite for biometrics. As Laura Dennehy, commissioning editor at Future Foundation, says: "Health is no longer just about our bodies, it is about our minds and moods."

In the corporate sphere the desire to embrace mindfulness shows no sign of slowing, and business leaders will be expected to consider the impact of their culture on the mental wellbeing of their
employees. Communication is now all-encompassing, so providing the necessary space for strategic thinking will become a key business challenge.
