  • Pros: 

    Approachable and effective introduction to mindfulness and meditation.

    Cons: 

    Intrinsic motivation requires lots of self-discipline.

    For those of you who want to become their best selves, Headspace is a fantastic intro to the world of meditation. Andy is a great guide and I've improved so much at work and home thanks to being more mindful throughout my day. Would highly recommend for people who want to live 'optimally'.

    If you're the kind of person who needs more extrinsic motivation, this may not be for you as the 'hook' to continue daily meditation is more nuanced and self-actualized.

Am I the only one who doesn't like the default voice on headspace? Something about that Cockney-ish accent.... Great design though.

@evankimbrell I actually find the cockney-ish of it all to be soothing.

@evankimbrell check out Calm if you haven't already. "Andy's" voice just became something more distracting than helpful for me. Also, check out Insight Timer. Calm, Insight Timer, Zazn, UCLA mindfulness center and plenty more offer a lot for free, and minus Andy

@akber4747 you really don't like Andy, huh? 😞

@thecoppinger I'm sure he's a nice guy. I just like a little more enunciation

@evankimbrell My girl refused to use just because of the voice. I personally didn't find it annoying, but considering what a huge part of meditation it is the app should have multiple voices to choose from. GPS apps do it & it's actually more important for an app like this.

Wow! Very excited about this one. Been using Headspace for a couple years now and the new updates are just what I needed! 🙌

I used headspace for a while and to its credit i learned to meditate with it but I left for insight timer which is more dharma focused, free and doesn't claim to be able to help with everything that ails you
