The Headspace Guide to Meditation & Mindfulness

The Headspace Guide to Meditation & Mindfulness Review

This program was previously published as Get Some Headspace: How Mindfulness Can Change Your Life in Ten Minutes a Day.

Quiet the mind, feel less stressed and less tired, and achieve a new level of calm and fulfillment in just ten minutes a day.

Andy Puddicombe, a former Buddhist monk, the Voice of Headspace, and the UK's foremost mindfulness expert, is on a mission: to get people to take 10 minutes out of their day to sit in the here and now.

Like his readers and students, Andy began his own meditation practice as a normal, busy person with everyday concerns, and he has since designed a program of mindfulness and guided meditation that fits neatly into a jam-packed daily routine - proving that just 10 minutes a day can make a world of difference.

Accessible and portable, The Headspace Guide to Meditation and Mindfulness offers simple but powerful meditation techniques that positively impact every area of physical and mental health: from productivity and focus, to stress and anxiety relief, sleep, weight-loss, personal relationships...the benefits are limitless. The result? More headspace, less stress. Andy brings this ancient practice into the modern world, tailor made for the most time starved among us.

    While this book was an entertaining, gentle, and refreshingly irreverent introduction to meditation, from my perspective it didn't live up to the glowing reviews I'd heard about it. I've read a number...

    Love the app, which I use and find very engaging. The book, however, is a little repetitive if you are already using the app. Would be better to read the book and then see the film, if you get my drif...

    Wonderful stuff. Everyone should listen to this guy. Mindfulness makes so much sense. I downloaded the app after GR friend Elizabeth spoke so highly of the book. After the 10 minutes of guided meditat...
