Get Some Headspace

I never thought I had the time for meditation until I listened to Andy Puddicombe’s Get Some Headspace. More of an adaptation of Andy’s life than a how-to book on meditation, Get Some Headspace chronicles Andy’s travels, how he became a monk, the people he’s helped along the way and just how important mindfulness can be to anyone who is willing to give it a chance—even if it’s just ten minutes a day. Take ten is Andy’s trademark for how simple it can be to start your own journey to mindfulness. He also includes some guided meditations at the end of the book for everything from starting your day to eating and sleeping. There’s even a free app with the same title to help people test out meditation. Informative and entertaining—with an author whose voice is exceptionally pleasant to listen too—I highly recommend finding your ten minutes and checking out Get Some Headspace.

Get Some Headspace

Quiet the mind, feel less stressed, 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.
