Giving us some head space!

Have you heard about the coolest app that brings us a little head space?  If not, where have you been – too busy maybe?

HeadspaceWhat Headspace gives us is a nifty, modern way to quieten our mind.  It comes to you as a mobile app and digital platform (already has over 1-million users) of pre-packaged and very accessible guided sessions.

If I hear anyone now saying “what, my mind doesn’t need this” – then this app is for you!  If I hear you say “what, like a meditation, I’m not THAT type of guy/gal!” then this app is especially for you!

Andy Puddicombe of Headspace

“Most people assume that meditation is all about stopping thoughts, getting rid of emotions, somehow controlling the mind. But actually it’s … about stepping back, seeing the thought clearly, witnessing it coming and going.”

Any Puddicombe, the founder of Headspace, is just as cool as his app. He makes sense of the science behind the practise of daily mindfulness and offers an engaging animation-driven website, where you can download the free app, get the free 10-day sessions and more.

I’m now on day 6 of the free 10-day “Take 10” free sessions.  You can simply do this over and over again if you don’t want to make a monetary investment into their subscriptions offering. Either way you’ll be investing in yourself by taking some head space!

Today I’ve gone for it! Paying a monthly charge of R78 ($6.65), by subscribing for 12 months, I’ll be tapping into a wide selection of guided sessions.

Check out his popular (about 5 million views to date) YouTube video here!  Recently interviewed by Rich Roll, this podcast interview is pretty cool too. (interview starts 14 minutes into the programme)

Enjoy your journey!
