How’s your head? With more than 50,000 thoughts a day signaling through 80 billion neurons and a quadrillion synapses, there is a lot going on upstairs. You’ll need some help navigating your chaotic noggin, and the good folks over at Headspace, a digital step-by-step platform on mindfulness, have a solution. Co-founded by meditation expert and ordained Tibetan Buddhist monk Andy Puddicombe, Headspace is designed to be a “gym membership for your mind.”
A chill-out room for your brain
Because it is his personal mission to “improve the health and happiness of the world,” Andy calmly guides you through daily 10-minute sessions that ease you into the world of meditation through your smartphone. With a subscription, you’ll have access to hundreds of hours of content, including ways to eat, sleep, listen and love better.
iPhone a friend
And because we all know that giving makes us happy, Headspace will even donate a free subscription to someone in need to fulfill your altruistic tendencies. Available for both iOS and Android devices, the app keeps stats of your sessions and can also connect you with your friends for extra motivation. So sit back, relax and free your mind.
