Are you interested in meditation, but you don't know exactly how and where to start? The Headspace app is your best friend!
Headspace is an English-American online company specialized in meditation. It was founded in May 2010 in London by Andy Puddicombe and Richard Pierson. Andy Puddicombe is an expert in meditation and mindfulness, and the voice of the Headspace meditations. His meditation training led him in his twenties to a Tibetan monastery in the Indian Himalayas, where he lived as a Buddhist monk. Andy returned to England with the huge-yet-simple goal: teaching meditation and mindfulness to as many people as possible. Headspace has one mission: to improve the health and happiness of the world. And with millions of users in more than 190 countries, we’re well on their way.
The Headspace app is the way to release stress and get a better night's sleep. The guided meditations teach you to bring peace, well-being and balance to your life in just a few minutes a day. Using mindfulness techniques you learn to be less distracted and reactive, and to concentrate on the things that are really important to you.
The Basics course is free and teaches you the basic techniques of meditation and mindfulness. Afterwards you get access to the entire Headspace meditation library through a subscription. Train your mind with guided meditations on everything from managing stress and anxiety to a better night's sleep to relationships. Use SOS sessions to skillfully manage moments of panic or anxiety. With the help of Sleep by Headspace, including sleepcasts and sleep sounds, you get the rest you deserve at night. The Headspace animation library is full of tips and useful wisdom to keep your exercises on track, and you can even add friends to keep each other motivated.
The app is available for Android and iPhone.
