Meditation app seeks open-minded individuals.

Headspace Review

by on May 17, 2012

In all likelihood, meditation is not what you think it is. It doesn’t need to involve sitting with your legs crossed, or humming. You don’t even have to disappear off to the Himalayas.

Tell that to Andy Puddicombe, who did the latter at just 22 years old, and spent the next 10 years as a Buddhist monk in a Tibetan Monastery. Having returned to the UK, Andy is making meditation accessible to to the masses, and he’s doing it with Headspace.

The app begins with a basic introduction to what meditation does and how it can help you. The key to the whole principle is having an open mind. You can then follow Headspace’s ‘Take 10′ program for free – a ten day sample of some of the techniques you can use to free yourself from the stresses of life and work.

The app itself is very well built, with extremely professional animations and videos from Andy himself guiding you through and helping you take the techniques on board.

You will need an internet connection to get these videos, but you can download them all at once if needed. The primary need that original Headspace users had was for the app to be accessible anytime and anywhere.

If you like what you see, then you can subscribe to the full 365 day program for £4.99 a month. Either way, to see a website and app with such a commitment to detail and content is fantastic and whether Headspace’s techniques work for you or not, enormous work has gone into Headspace as a whole, and the resulting app is absolutely worth 10 minutes of your day.
