Andy Puddicombe and Rich Pierson, co-founders of Headspace, want to help people become more productive by secularizing meditation.
"We live in a culture where maybe we think the more we're thinking about stuff, the more that we're doing stuff, the more productive we're going to be, but it doesn't actually always work like that," Puddicombe told CNBC.
"Meditation offers us the ability to step out from that thinking mind and to see it in a different way so that we're not so easily overwhelmed," Puddicombe said.
"Headspace is our way of helping society think differently about the health and happiness of the mind. There's always been a focus on physical health. Our focus is on the health of the mind," he said.
