Get Some Headspace
Get Some Headspace: How Mindfulness Can Change Your Life in Ten Minutes a Day | Andy Puddicombe
13 posts | 14 read | 10 to read
As a former Buddhist monk with over 10 years of teaching experience, Andy Puddicombe has been acknowledged as the UK's foremost mindfulness meditation expert. Like his readers and students, he began his own meditation practice as a normal, busy person with everyday concerns, and he has since designed a program of mindfulness and guided meditation that fits neatly into a jam-packed daily routine-proving that just 10 minutes a day can make a world of difference. Simple exercises, stories and techniques culled from Andy's years of experience will help anyone calm the chatter in their minds. The result? More headspace, less stress. Get Some Headspace also brings us the extraordinary science behind this seemingly simple cure-all. This book and practice will help readers positively impact every area of their physical and mental health through mindfulness, from productivity and focus, to stress and anxiety relief, sleep, weight-loss, personal relationships...and the list goes on and on.

A great introduction to Mindfulness, it has had a positive impact on my day to day life and caused me to want to continue learning more.

It can sometimes feel as though we're so busy remembering, planning and analysing life, that we forget to experience life - as it actually is, rather than how we think it should be.

Think about meditation as the platform for which you'll operate over the next 24 hours. That sense of calm will enable you to respond skilfully to situations if you can maintain your awareness.

Mindfulness simply means to be present, undistracted, in the moment, as opposed to lost in thought and caught up in the emotions.

quote

If you can give up your desire to always experience pleasant things, at the same time as giving up your fear of experiencing unpleasant things, then you'll have a quiet mind.

A co-worker discovered we could get a free subscription to the Headspace app for meditation. I couldn‘t pass it up since I‘ve wanted to give it a try and have absolutely no idea how. I‘m 9 days in (not consecutive, but I‘m trying) and just finished Andy Puddicombe‘s Headspace book on audio. Meditation is coming together for me and I‘m looking forward to learning/practicing a new skill!

3/5
A great book for beginners or even veterans who want a little more background on the basics. I used to meditate my fair share before but this was still insightful and gave me ideas on how to tackle some issues that came up during my recent meditation practice. I‘m slowly getting back into doing meditation daily so this was great to help me ease into it.

RvnclawWhovian I love this app! I try to meditate most mornings and I use the “sleepcasts” when I‘m having trouble falling asleep 8mo
nelehelen @RvnclawWhovian I used to use this app everyday too! Now, I use “Insight Timer” since it has so many different types of guided meditations and music. Check it out! 8mo

Started reading this then heard the author speak and decided to switch to audiobook. This was on the Bill Gates list for 2018 as a way to take an approach to meditation that is practical and for your own “Headspace” without the dogma. Puddicombe has a digital platform as well- an app- that I have been using- it includes sleep stories like Calm- and ambient sounds as well as guided meditations but it does cost. The audio has some in appendix 4⭐️

The next book up in my 2019 creativity reading project is this book from Bill Gates‘ top 5 list. I have the book but am listenening to Andy Puddicombe read it and am enjoying that very much. A real life approach to meditation and mindfulness and integrating the skills into your life. Not far in but I approve so far. Happy Mindful Monday☔️🌸

So I‘ve taken a detour in my literary journey to deal with some unpleasant life business and self-care. Three weeks into my Headspace journey, I can tell you that it has changed my life for the better. I wish I‘d heard about mindfulness and meditation years ago. Perhaps it would have saved my marriage? In any case, glad and grateful I found it and am now hopeful for a future that‘s better than the past. I recommend this for everyone!

So it's no secret I live by a list (or two 😜) and live by my bujo so I'm loving the fact that adding 2 books a week to my bujo is keeping me on track and beyond.... book 3 so far this week 💕
