This program was previously published as Get Some Headspace: How Mindfulness Can Change Your Life in Ten Minutes a Day.
Quiet the mind, feel less stressed and less tired, and achieve a new level of calm and fulfillment in just ten minutes a day.
Andy Puddicombe, a former Buddhist monk, the Voice of Headspace, and the UK's foremost mindfulness expert, is on a mission: to get people to take 10 minutes out of their day to sit in the here and now.
Like his readers and students, Andy 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.
Accessible and portable, The Headspace Guide to Meditation and Mindfulness offers simple but powerful meditation techniques that positively impact every area of physical and mental health: from productivity and focus, to stress and anxiety relief, sleep, weight-loss, personal relationships...the benefits are limitless. The result? More headspace, less stress. Andy brings this ancient practice into the modern world, tailor made for the most time starved among us.

I am a social worker and I buy books that will help me help others.
I have been a user of the author's headspace app for over a year now, so I had a good idea of what to expect in this book. He is able to explain how to be mindful in a simple and understandable way. I've read many books by zen masters that I value, but I feel like I got more out of this book. It is narrated by the author and he does an excellent job. He tells personal stories that keep you engaged. Overall, I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in mindfulness and/or being more calm.
This is an amazing book. It's an unusually comprehensive look into the principles, techniques and applications of mindfulness and meditation. A true potential life changer. I was captivated from beginning to end and will be referring to it again and again.
Good stories. Good substance. Good performance. But it leaves you needing something to tie it all together and connect the dots.
his accent and relative sense of humor on what can be a dry topic. Sheds light on some misconceptions about meditation.
no. because he pretty much made his point.
