    Embracing the Things We Don’t Like

    Embracing the Things We Don’t Like

    How much time do you spend running away from things you don’t like? Green veggies may come to mind, or a specific task at work. This weekend, try instead to turn toward things you usually avoid and approach them with curiosity. This is a useful skill to have and you may find you like kale more than you think.

    If Enlightenment Happens, You Won’t Miss It

    If Enlightenment Happens, You Won’t Miss It

    We get a lot of questions about journaling during a meditation. A lot of thoughts pop up during meditation — they could be creative or insightful. And we may  want to remember them. But stopping your meditation to write things down changes the nature of the exercise and may even create more tension. Try to resist this urge. Trust us — if it’s really important, you won’t forget it.

    New Quarantine Skill: Juggling

    New Quarantine Skill: Juggling

    Are you in the process of learning something new? Or are you quitting a new skill before you’ve really learned it because you think you’re bad at it? If you have these  thoughts when you’re learning something, remember, that is just a thought. It has no basis in reality. Try to appreciate whatever you’re doing, wherever you’re at.

    Having Scary Thoughts

    Having Scary Thoughts

    Sometimes, thoughts that really scare us can arise. And if there is the chance of immediate harm for you or someone around you, please seek medical attention as quickly as possible. But for other scary thoughts, we tend to push them down. We judge them and judge ourselves from having them. But we don’t have to. It’s our job to just witness the mind as it is.

    The Spectacular Now

    The Spectacular Now

    Not too long ago, Andy helped Cookie Monster out while he was waiting for his latest batch of cookies to bake. And while you may not be a cookie monster, you may often find yourself waiting for something else to happen, which often means you’re missing out on what is actually happening right now. Remember, what’s happening right now is enough.

    Check out Andy’s adventures with all of our friends on Sesame Street.

    You Don’t Have to Know It All

    You Don’t Have to Know It All

    We often feel the need to know everything about our lives and ourselves. We want to know everything that happens next. That need for control can lead to a lot of anxiety. If you have someone on your mind this weekend, try asking a trusted friend for advice, and actually listen to it. See what happens.

I have a confession! ,

Oops

Ok, I have a confession to make... the one star review was me! I accidentally clicked on the one star and had no idea how to change it once I realised what I’d done! Anyway, just for the record I love everything to do with Headspace 😁💕

Great

Andy’s podcasts maybe are albeit short however the message being conveyed in each podcast is always able to touch the spirit. The addition to soft music and way Andy narrates each podcast makes this one of go to favourites.

Great start to a weekday morning

Just brilliant to help me take about 5 mins each day to think wider than my bubble, to chill with a lovely story or thought provoking insight. Andy has a great voice and the stories he has are fascinating.
Thanks for doing this.
