I think adding Meditation as an activity type will be great for Strava. 

This is important because:

  • Meditation helps athletes calm their mind and improve mental health before big races
  • Strava can partner with guided meditation apps like Calm or Headspace to send directly to the activity feed like Peloton/Zwift
  • As an incentive and benefit for subscribers, Strava can give free access to Calm/Headspace/Tara Brach/Sam Harris specifically for endurance athletes. Headspace has partnered with Nike. 
  • Meditation activity can be set to private to respect athletes and athletes can choose if they want to make it public by opting in.

An example of when I would want this feature is every morning. I try to take one deep breath every day and would do it more often if I saw that my friends are doing it too. And I'm interested to know who they follow and which guided sessions they use. Thank you Strava! 

Follow me on Strava!
