Headspace – Meditate the Worry Away

Most people don’t think of technology and meditation as going together, but that hasn’t fazed the founders of Headspace. The web-based application teaches its users how to meditate effectively with just 10 minutes a day.

To fully understand the concept of Headspace, you need to think of the platform like a gym membership for your brain. Headspace uses meditation and mindfulness techniques to help you train your mind to become healthier and happier. Visit the Headspace website and follow the instructions to begin. Most people choose to start with Take 10, a 10-day program that teaches users the basics of meditation. When you’ve completed that program, subscribe to Headspace for even more advanced content. You can get access to hundreds of hours of original meditation content, along with bite-size SOS meditation sessions for when you’re in full meltdown mode. Headspace also provides special series collections that focus on particular issues that you may be struggling with, like health and relationships.

Because Headspace is a web-based application, the company takes full advantage of analytics and statistics. Link up with friends who use the service, track your progress, and receive bonus gifts when you meditate for several days in a row. Overall, Headspace is an excellent solution for people who are interested in meditation but aren’t sure how to begin.
