There are so many things that cause us stress in our daily lives. Technology is one of them, so it would make sense that one way to relieve stress is through technology. The meditation app Headspace offers exactly that. With Headspace, you get the most out of your day, and it helps you work at your best through the life-changing skills of meditation and mindfulness.
With the free Basics pack, Headspace teaches you the essentials of living a healthier, happier life. The subscription pack offers hundreds of meditations on everything from stress and anxiety to sleep and focus. The latest version of the app offers to help you cope with the mania of this stressful year. It aims to help you no matter where you are or what you are doing, whether you are out for a walk or on your daily commute.
Regular users of the app will be familiar with the attractive graphics and gently guided meditations narrated by the founder of Headspace, Andy Puddicombe. The Take10 and Foundation packs on the free app are designed to ease new users into the art of meditation. However, in the subscription model, these have been renamed Basics. Also, with the subscription, you can start and stop different packs, instead of having to follow one sequence of meditations in one pack at a time. There are also a lot of options for personalizing the new Headspace journey. This is an attractive plus for existing users who want to find more ways to apply meditation techniques to other areas of their life.
There are also new meditations, known as Minis, that help you take between one and three minutes out of your day to unwind. These will especially benefit you if you already use the app. newcomers will still have to work through the basics, which are designed to help them learn the basic techniques to enjoy the wide range of meditations Headspace has to offer.
