Recently I described how I used the Headspace app to help my students learn how to mindfully meditate at the start of each class period.
On my own, it took me a few more than ten days to complete the free trial of ten sessions. Although I am now meditating using a different app with nature sounds, I can highly recommend the Headspace trial.
After signing up with an email address and password (or signing in with your facebook account), you can access the ten free sessions. Don’t worry, no credit card is required at this point.
The screen looks like this, via a web browser on a computer:
Click on session one and a cute, 1 1/2 minute animate will begin. If you want to jump right to the audio for the first session, close the video and proceed.
There is also a free iPad/iPhone app that you can download via the App Store. Search under “Headspace.” You won’t see it on the screen that comes so you need to change the search to “iPhone only” (upper left side). You’ll then see the app and have the ability to download it. After signing into it (with a username/password you’ve set up through the website), you can access the 10 free sessions.
And here’s links to some YouTube videos featuring Andy and the Headspace content:
