Headspace Guide to Meditation demonstrates how the streaming service can be used as a healthy tool, and maybe this is only the beginning.

Netflix’s Headspace: Guide to Meditation season 1 was released on the streaming service on January 1, 2021.


After saying goodbye to the wretched 2020 that left most of us in limbo, Netflix brings a tool that can benefit their audience to give perspective and find ways to cultivate calm. Many of us are hoping that 2021 gives us hope and a new sense of worth and normality. But if you haven’t started meditating now, then I’d highly recommend it; there are more ways to de-stress — there are more ways to help our mind.

While a pandemic may have provided new hobbies from hiking to selling Pokémon cards, some turned to meditation. As the Netflix series demonstrates, it’s never too late to start. If you have used the smartphone app Headspace, then this tool-driven and relaxing series will be familiar. The creators have given 8 chapters with visual and audio advice, providing new and old techniques that can be useful for different life aspects.

This is a good idea; while many may be comfortable using the phone app, Headspace Guide to Meditation could open up a useful tool to many more audiences and demographics. While maneuvering through the first two chapters, I felt at ease by the voice.

But I did wonder if Netflix can easily tap into the health and wellbeing market. It’s effortless for them to take apps and convert them to bite-sized chapters that can be explored. Imagine if Netflix brought popular workout brands or even healthy cooking tutorials? Netflix would turn from an unhealthy binge to a healthy one.

The series was produced by Vox Media Studios and is the first of three Headspace projects on Netflix this year.
