App of the Week – Headspace

Published on November 18, 2015

Mindfulness meditation has migrated from monasteries to the modern mainstream startup culture.

Thanks in part to giant tech companies such as Google and Apple who have adopted the practice, mindfulness meditation is now part of the deconstructive programmer culture. What do these people have in common? They all take daily inventory of themselves so that they can improve.

Headspace is a simple app to guide that process. This app teaches meditation and mindfulness techniques, allowing you to lead a healthier, happier, and more enjoyable lifestyle.

The app features a simple interface of individual guided meditation sessions that you can download and use anytime and anywhere - even when not connected to WiFi. Think of it as your new "word-a-day" calendar for meditation.

You can test drive the app for free with the 10 day introductory program, Take10, which shows you the basics of meditation in just 10 minutes a day. And who doesn’t have 10 minutes?

Give Headspace a try.
