You’ve likely heard about the wildly popular mindfulness and meditation app called Headspace, and the hype is real, it really is awesome. It has a huge range of guided meditation, for every mood and situation, along with meditation to help you sleep, stories to listen to while you fall asleep, short mindfulness sessions to help you focus, and even guided movement sessions to help you be more mindful while you exercise.
The meditation sessions range from 3-20 minutes, which is super helpful for when you just want to take a moment to be mindful at your desk, or if you really want to wind down after a stressful day with a longer session.
I started a couple weeks ago as a TOTAL meditation newbie, and I found the guided sessions ridiculously easy to follow, so you don’t have to worry about “not knowing how to meditate” and you can just go with the flow and follow the instructions as the session moves along.
You can use Headspace for free, however you only get access to the very basics, so it’s great to figure out if you enjoy it, but not awesome for the long-term. Headspace plus is £9.99/month, or £49.99/year, and you can get a free two week trial of Headspace Plus to figure out if you really like it.
For uni students: if you didn’t know already, you can get Headspace Plus with your student Spotify account for only £4.99/month (for both subscriptions!) — just head to this link and follow the instructions. I’d highly recommend it, especially if you’ve never tried meditation before. I did, and I have zero regrets.
