This year’s Women’s History Month, beginning March 1, honors the women who embrace and uplift people of all backgrounds, races, genders, ages, and perspectives. Throughout history, women have advocated for equal opportunities for all people, knowing that we all benefit when everyone thrives. 

At Calm, we honor and celebrate the women who are using their expertise, artistry, and voices to help others live healthier, happier lives. A Calm survey of more than 4,000 adults shows that an alarming percentage of people are struggling with anxiousness, depression, sleep, focus and grief. Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they’ve felt unable to stop or control worrying in the past month, for example. Sixty-nine percent said they’ve experienced having little interest or pleasure in doing things.  

We’re excited to share a selection of Calm content authored, narrated, and composed by women to help people manage stress and anxiety, sleep better, and feel more present in their lives. We encourage you and your employees to listen to some wisdom, start the day with soothing music, or take some time to move mindfully between meetings.
