Basics

Headspace begins the ten free sessions with an introduction that those familiar and unfamiliar with meditation can appreciate. The ‘Basics’ component takes you through a simple journey to prepare you for the upcoming sessions in just a few minutes.

 

Your Headspace: Anywhere, Anyhow

One of the instructional benefits of a Headspace subscription is the versatility of enjoying its benefits wherever you are, whenever you can. As opposed to other therapy sessions that require you to conform to their time constraints, with Headspace you set your own schedule for your journey into progress. Aside from the freedom from appointments, you can also tailor the Headspace app to your particular lifestyle by choosing sessions that reflect your mood and activities.

 

Buddy Up!

You can opt to share your journey with any of the 15 million other subscribers at any point. Whether they’re friends you’re already acquainted with or anonymous other searchers, asking for help or sharing your rewards may become a pivotal step in your meditational progress.
