Have you ever felt like you just needed to take a moment and.., RELAX? We’ve all been there hectic schedules, too many obligations, never enough hours in the day. Sometimes we just want to take a seat and clear our minds. Meditation is an ancient practice that has stood through the test of the time as a viable resource to get in touch with your “inner being” and find peace.

Headspace is a web and mobile enabled application that focuses on keeping meditation simple, accessible and open for all people in all stages of their practice. Meditation has been known to stimulate creativity, strengthen self-control, and improve effective communication.


Whether it’s simply sitting and breathing in a cross-legged position and finding a way to center your thoughts; or watching a video that explains the science in laymen terms behind the benefits that meditation reaps; Headspace will get your mind out of the clouds and into yourself. The application focuses on users finding ways to spare 10 minutes a day, in whatever setting they feel comfortable in, and learn how to “apply mindfulness in their everyday activities”.
