    Don’t Scratch The Itch

    Don’t Scratch The Itch

    Itches have a way of taking over the body. It can be all we think about, and we often scratch and scratch with little relief. This is common with physical discomfort. Whenever we notice a twinge we immediately go to change it. But what if you sat with it for a moment instead? Explore sitting with discomfort and see what happens.

    This week, Radio Headspace is brought to you by Changing The Game. Listen to Changing The Game wherever you get your podcasts.

    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

    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.
