At Headspace, we define mindfulness as the intention to be present in the here and now, fully engaged in whatever is happening, free from distraction or judgment, with a soft and open mind.
Meditation is the simple exercise to familiarize oneself with the qualities of mindfulness. It is a way of providing the optimum conditions for training the mind to be calmer, clearer and kinder. Just as exercising regularly makes you fitter and feel better, regular meditation can transform your mind and wellbeing. People of different cultures have practiced it for thousands of years. Headspace is meditation for the modern world.
This type of meditation does not require you to sit cross-legged or to have incense-burning. We teach practical techniques that anyone can learn. Our guided sessions are available online, on your computer, tablet or smartphone, at a time that suits you. By practicing these, you’ll experience less stress, more contentment and greater clarity in your life. Why not treat your head right?
