Mornings can be hectic, especially when you have to get yourself and your kids out the door. When you arrive to work, a few moments of zen might do you some good.
Headspace is an app designed to help you relax and learn to let go of your stress. It has hundreds of daily themed meditations and mindfulness exercises on everything from stress to self confidence to sleep. The sessions are all short (varying between 3 and 20 minutes), because while meditation is important and great, who really has time to sit around doing nothing for hours at a time?
According to Headspace, "Meditation isn't about becoming a different person, a new person, or even a better person. It's about training in awareness and getting a healthy sense of perspective. You're not trying to turn off your thoughts or feelings. You're learning to observe them without judgment. And eventually, you may start to better understand them as well."
It's like having a mindfulness coach with you any time you need one. You can also sign up your team at work to join you in meditation as a group. It's team-building, and proven to improve business outcomes.
The app is free to download, but you'll need to pay a subscription fee. It's $12.99/month or $7.99/month if you sign up for the year.
