Headspace, an app, has been in growing in popularity since it first came out. Created by a former Buddhist monk, he cast a net to reach a larger audience with his teachings on meditation. However, instead of doing it from a sanctuary or temple, he does it from a more modern platform. The app focuses on 5 different aspects: stress, sleep, loving, anxiety, and cognition. The meditation series targets each aspect and aims to improve or mitigate as needed.
For 10 minutes a day, you can find “extra calm and clarity” by listening to online sessions to help clear your mind and find your headspace. The Headspace app can do wonders for your mental health and help your approach every day with more confidence and clarity. There is a 10-day free trial if you’d like to try it out. You can download Headspace in the App Store or through Google Play.
