Press Pause

We can’t always control the people, situations and challenges that leave us feeling overwhelmed, stressed or anxious. We can control what we do with those feelings.


Press Pause is a digital self-care and coping experience created by The Jed Foundation and powered by PINK that helps us take a moment when we’re feeling overwhelmed to find a calmer state and recharge before we react or decide what to do next.


The Press Pause hub provides tips, tools and videos to walk through strategies to Press Pause in 8 categories: Breathe, Move, Get Grateful, Meditate, Connect, Reflect, Prioritize and Express.
