Amazon wants to help workers with mental health problems. It plans to put "wellness chambers" in its warehouses so workers can relax. Workers can watch videos about relaxation in the chambers. Amazon said the chambers are part of a system called "AmaZen". It said: "Employees can visit AmaZen stations and watch short videos featuring easy-to-follow well-being activities, including guided meditations...and calming scenes with sounds."

After Amazon shared a video of its AmaZen chamber, many Twitter users criticised the working conditions at Amazon's warehouses. An Amazon worker described his experiences of working at Amazon. He said: "You don't get treated like a person. They work you like a robot…You don't have time to go to the bathroom." Amazon said: "The health and safety of employees is [our] number one priority and has been since day one."
