Life Changing
by Wes Sindt on 2021/04/19 22:55
That’s all I want to say. Discovering meditation (via the use of Headspace) has done me so much good. Life changed.
Entirely worth it, this is the best app I have on my phone to date
by Joshua H' on 2021/04/19 18:38
This app has singlehandedly allowed me to get better sleep, become more confident, and relax when I’m in a stressful situation. However, this is not a “magic” app. This app teaches you the skills necessary to meditate on your own. It is a “teach a man to fish” par excelance type of app. Through it, I can go to sleep in 2 minutes or less at night, be rejuvenated during my day with a 5-minute meditation, and even call a company for my first ever job interview with a meditation for confidence or anxiety. This app is not able to be encapsulated in one review, but the 5-stars may as well be a given!
One year in, still love headspace!
by BeckyJo203 on 2021/04/19 16:52
I’ve been using this app for more than a year but since the chaos started last year I’ve been really looking for ways to help reduce my anxiety, keep focused while working from home and sleep better. I can’t say I use headspace every single day but on the days I do, I feel better! Love the newer additions of the daily plan, focus playlists and even exercises.
Kicked out
by WStaten on 2021/04/19 10:32
This app kicked me out when I was sleeping with music from the app and I have to sign in again. I don’t have that much else to say.
World Class!
by RonaldWA on 2021/04/19 02:27
If I could I would give this app 10 Stars! It goes above and beyond what you would expect from a mediation app and surpassed my expectations. There are way too many cool and useful features for me to try to explain. Do yourself a favor and give the free trial a go!
Best Ever Meditation
by Happy CA Senior on 2021/04/19 00:03
I could go on and on for all the benefits of this app. I love the inspiration, the heartfelt guidance and insights, blended with humor and humanity. It helps me daily with being present and in the vibration of love, kindness, compassion and simply loving bing a good life.

Closed Captioning
by nmendia on 2021/04/18 17:37
Would y’all ever consider closed captioning for deaf and hard of hearing users? — Update to response: Can you please pay Dora Kamau more than Andy? I’m not kidding. Please. So she can record everything in the app? Thank you
So glad that you added Dora
by ecraipcaa on 2021/04/18 16:37
I love this app so much. Helps keep me centered. And I love Dora’s approach. Thank you so much for adding her in! And thank you Dora!!
Headspace Is My Lifeline
by bbnhgte#st(knf( on 2021/04/18 15:04
Headspace is a rock in this crazy world. It is a friend when I’m feeling down. It’s inspiration when everything looks bleak. Andy keeps me sane and gives me hope every day.
Mental Health
by Tootall23 on 2021/04/18 14:35
Before I didn’t realize how beneficial meditation was to my life before I started using this app. I first watched the documentary and learned about how to meditate. And then this app presented itself and I took of with it. Very useful for those looking for different ways to benefit themselves mentally and emotionally!!
Lack of sleep
by Stargazer16729 on 2021/04/18 07:33
Wish there were more guided fall asleep meditations
Good app
by kireahm22 on 2021/04/17 23:09
I have heard of apps similar to this one before and figured I would give it a try to relax me since with finals are just around the corner and deadlines are getting closer. I decided to put my goal at reducing stress and anxiety and the first thing I got was prompoted to a “Feeling overwhelmed” talk down to get myself relaxed and calm. The voice was not all that calming and relaxing, but he did have an accent that was very mesmorizing that helped let go of some tension. After setting some goals for myself Headspace created a list of things for me to accomplish throughout the day and the first thing was to take five deep breaths. What I loved about this was the music was very calming, but still had some upbeats it helped with when we were holding, breathing in, and exhaling. Another great component was there was a little face that would do the exercise with you and when you would inhale it would smile. The way this app relates with anxiety and panic attacks is, I think this can be beneficial to help get our heart rates down, get us to focus on other things, and help us relax. I think this would be incredibly useful in situations of discomfort of nervousness, I know this would help me and many others. Breathing methods help center us, by doing the five breaths with the app helped me feel more in control and calm of what I was doing. I have shared this app with my family, as I know they have been going through some hard times lately and they could use something to relax and destress them. Stress can be hard to manage, and a lot of the talking “podcasts” seem to help with trying to get you to let go or trying to find other things to distract ourselves with so we dont become too overwhelmed. Overall, I think this app has some benefits it helps calm you, center you, and puts you at peace. It certainly helped my anxiety be more managable while doing assignments and it helped me get in the right direction for the next couple of hours with my work and overall wellness. I can definitely see myself using this in a store to distract myself from my anxiety because this type of stuff can be grounding.
Cool

Headspace review thing
by ZicosLemons on 2021/04/17 15:47
Personally, I love this app it helps me fall asleep in a blast, although I am rating this with 4 stars because most of the other features cost money, I don’t think you need to pay to be helped with sleep or anxiety or if you chose any of the other options.
Love this experience!
by E. Maxie on 2021/04/17 12:41
I use Headspace as an daily app experience for meditation and yoga. In as little as a minute, I’m refreshed in the moment to live a more relaxed and well-balanced lifestyle. So rich and full of diverse wellness practices. It’s my new favorite go to!
So relaxing
by vvvvvvvvviivvvv on 2021/04/17 05:04
This app is very relaxing and calming
I was freaking out
by nearbybridge on 2021/04/17 04:45
I was having a panic attack. I remember seeing a commercial about this app so I downloaded it, searched panic and listened to the meditation a few times in a row. It really calmed me down and I am really thankful.
Don’t like being told what to do
by Kind of cool yo on 2021/04/16 23:30
I really really don’t like being told what to do by privileged clinicians. So it’s nice to still have access to helpful resources. There’s a lot of life skills this app can help with. My work pays for it idk if I would pay for it myself. The voices and advice aren’t too pushy. A little bit uppity but at least not pushy. no matter what your background everyone wants more control in their life learning to work with yourself is how to get real control
The best app ever
by Gisby0522 on 2021/04/16 19:06
A bit of back information, I have anger issues, really bad, and when my sister and I get into fights I use this app to calm me down. I go to my room. And let this app carry me away. It is amazing and please support this app. It deserves so much for how much it helps people. This app will not waste your time. Meditating is so good for the mind. And there are free sessions. Please get this app. I think if everyone had a dose of meditation a day, it would help a lot.
Thank you
by heybloom on 2021/04/16 15:14
The best app out there for meditation and more! Thank you for creating headspace, there’s so much to help you calm
Life changing
by SDGilley on 2021/04/16 14:11
I stress less, sleep better, and I’m kinder. It’s simple, straightforward meditation. I used the free trial enough to realize it’s value to me and my peace. I recommend this app and program. I am excited and purchased the subscription!
Perfect for all ages
by livemusiclvr on 2021/04/16 13:25
Was brand new to meditating when I first got this app a few years ago. Even though I have some experience now, I still continue to use it. I really like that they are moving meditations and different series to help you through the various challenges in life. I also love that there’s a children’s section. My children ask for Andy by name when they have a nightmare or when they’ve had a rough day.
Broken audio
by nyc.red.RD on 2021/04/16 05:48
Audio was very broken during the meditation; there were also moments of repeated audio that were poorly edited (choppy).
Great app but...
by Billy is blowing bubbles on 2021/04/16 04:10
This app is made very well. The quality of the app is great, no glitches not too sure but no ads. I really like the thought they put into the app. I have rated it a three because you have to pay six dollars a month to get anything on the app. I have downloaded this app a very long time ago and everything was free and it worked amazing. I am just a young student who wants a good night of sleep. I can’t pay six dollars a month. If the things on the app were free, it would be five stars without a doubt. If you can pay the six dollars a month, you go for it, it really does help.

Headspace has really helped me ! I am excited to get on my phone everyday for its daily mindful activities.
Great app
by avttvatva on 2021/04/15 21:27
The best app ever and it calmed me down.
Amazing
by krifcu on 2021/04/15 16:49
I think headspace is amazing when I want to fall asleep I just go to the following asleep exercise and it helped me a lot it helps when you wake up and it’s very calming I recommend people to headspace once a week
New Today Tab is a bad change
by marge-aaron on 2021/04/15 15:29
Nothing like having a checklist of things to do on my meditation app home screen. Definitely not stressful at all. I love seeing a big list of things I need to do throughout the entire day. I love it when an algorithm picks a bunch of random videos and playlists and then makes me feel compelled to watch them. Very thoughtful design choice and definitely feels grounded in care for the user and not in helping some product manager in charge of workout videos on a meditation app get their content onto the Home Screen somehow. Again, I love feeling pressured by my meditation app. Great feeling.
A different space created with headspace
by Normie41 on 2021/04/15 13:45
The convenience of having a meditation aid as close as my phone has made a significant change in my ability to meditate regularly. The grief module helped me thru the loss of my husband; the pain module helped through my broken elbow recovery. Now as I go they the Pro series I am getting deeper into what meditation is all about. Then there’s yoga modules. I Can’t say enough about the difference having this app on my phone has made in my life. Thank you headspace
Beginner Friendly
by 254Naomi on 2021/04/15 13:19
Great app for beginners to practice meditation. I like the use of colors and talking guided meditation.
Best mediation app
by theraddiestmatty on 2021/04/15 13:12
I’ve been using Headspace for a little over 4 years daily. I’ve tried a handful of the other apps and for me this is very straightforward and easy to learn. Great app!
Headspace is my favorite app !
by Irisherin95 on 2021/04/15 08:08
I have had a subscription to this app for a very long time. I first started using it for sleep. I could never fall asleep... I would toss and turn for hrs, sometimes all night and not even get a min of sleep. This was extremely frustrating and it was affecting many aspects of my life in a negative way. I have chronic back pain, and I could never get comfortable, so I thought about this pain all night. My mind racing, knowing that I had work in the morning and I was just miserable. So, I started using the wind downs. I incorporated that with a beginners course on meditation. After some time and practice, I was beginning to see real improvement. Then I added the sleep stories, I didn’t think they would work at first, because I believed that the story would have me too focused on the story and not fall asleep. Again, after a week or two, I was falling asleep before the story ended. Then I did the pain course...to help me understand my relationship with pain. It did wonders. Over months I was dedicating at least one time a day to meditation. I also have anxiety, and have been working on that. But there is so much more on this app. Yoga, healthy eating, music, and a lot of helpful info and meditations. I have tried other apps while using this one. Some were pretty good and some just weren’t for me. This app is honestly an app I can’t live without. I love it! I am living a healthier lifestyle and also sleeping so much better. I recommend this app to ANYONE & everyone. They add new courses and different aspects to it all the time. I will NEVER cancel this app. I have begun to look at life different. My mood is more positive, I am focusing more, and I encourage anyone looking for a place to start a meditation journey to start with this app. There’s so much information and I can’t go a day without it. It’s the best out there!
Fix the Apple Watch App
by Andrei_m17 on 2021/04/15 06:40
Can you guys finally fix the apple watch app? It’s literally useless, once it’s synced - that’s cool it’s works perfect, but the other day you open it and there just “Breathe mini” without your course/ favorite program e.t.c.
:)
by usachanj on 2021/04/15 04:27
This is the best app for meditation I’ve ever used
WHYYY

WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS IT MAKES NO SENSE JUST MAKE IT FREE CMON!!! Why isn’t FREE!!!!!!
This app is life changing!
by 8fuzzylegs on 2021/04/15 03:10
I started out with the Headspace episodes on Netflix and it inspired me to download the app, and it’s worth every penny! I realized I struggled a lot with insecurities and anxiety but after a few weeks of meditating daily I realized that there were deeper feelings causing those issues. It really helped me discover, cope with, and emotionally evolve to deepen my self love and my relationships with others. I am a more balanced, happier person and a lot of my frequent mood swings and frustrations have lessened dramatically, I am able to let things so easily and be at peace. I most certainly will be a life long meditator thanks to this app!
Has helped me stick with meditation for months
by HanFrag on 2021/04/15 02:09
Honestly this app is everything I need it to be.
Best app
by shnisa zubyat on 2021/04/14 16:13
This app is awesome I have trouble sleeping and stuff but this helps me a lot and when ever I’m stressed or sad or I can’t breathe that good this helps me you should try this app this app is the best!
Decepcionado todo es dinero
by Tipo normal tipo casual on 2021/04/14 02:13
Es increíble que deba de nuevo pagar por la aplicación que tampoco es tan económica.
Only one free item for sleep
by Julie in Alaska on 2021/04/13 20:55
Offering nothing but one option seems cheap and frustrating. Need more than one choice to call it an app with options
Awesome but expensive
by la_booger on 2021/04/13 20:41
The app is GREAT but update for no premium because on the first minute I said “will this have too many things I need to pay for” and the answer is yes
I love this app!
by awfsdd on 2021/04/13 20:22
I am so thankful that headspace was created. This app has helped me through the darkest times of my life i will forever be grateful💛
Wonderful experience
by Cari4321 on 2021/04/13 15:04
I signed up for a free year of headspace when the pandemic began and have been so impressed by both the app and the quality of the meditation courses and the sleep stories and meditations. I also think that the offer of an entire free year to folks who were financially impacted by the pandemic shows a real concern for mental health beyond pure financial gain from the people behind the company. So far, there have been options for both male and female voices which I appreciate, and I hope to see more diverse voices in the app moving forward. With some new voices on their roster from folks outside of the white community, it looks as though that’s something they are working towards. It’s been a valuable tool for me and I will be subscribing when my year runs out. Although it’s not a cheap subscription, if you can afford it I would definitely recommend.
Great, but where’s the support?
by Onkilter on 2021/04/13 12:24
I’ve been enjoying using the Headspace app for at least 17 days in a row... until today, when the app keeps buffering. I searched the app for app help, but there’s none to be found. I came here to the App Store and found an update, I updated, but still it is buffering. I went to the Headspace Facebook group, the FAQ freezes at a point saying Safari has to accept cookies (I already have Safari set properly). Headspace should be calming stress, not causing it.
Wonderful!
by rafam223 on 2021/04/13 12:21
As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression, Headspace has helped me through dealing with many difficult situations when they flare up. The courses are great to learn different techniques and methods to cope, and I love the feature that sets up a schedule for you each day with activities to meditate and reflect. The sleep section is amazing, and I use their sleep casts every night to sleep. I highly recommend Headspace!
Worth it
by The reviewer zzzpplkjshsbe on 2021/04/13 12:06
The cost of the subscription isn't terrible given the benefits of the program. Highly recommended.
Best Meditation App Ever!
by ibelieveinyou22 on 2021/04/13 11:39
Sometimes I put off meditation like I put off calling my blabbery aunt who never stops talking. I know I need to do it, but “later” always seems like a better time. Headspace helps by making the experience way easier by providing a fun and intuitive user interface, and with amazing guided meditations that leave me feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside. It feels like a massage for my brain, and I keep coming back for more after all these years.
Great app
by CRAZYkasie on 2021/04/13 02:24
I have had a lot of stress at the moment and headspace help a lot I love this app you should get it if you’re feeling stressed
Cant afford!
by 🦧kenna🦧 on 2021/04/13 02:15
I love this app so much but i just cannot afford the subscription! I come from a family with financial problems and it used to all be free. now with the paying i can barely do anything on the app..

Everyone should meditate
by travislloyd450 on 2021/04/12 18:56
Before my spiritual awakening and discovering my God, I thought meditation was for eastern religions, Buddhism, Hinduism, but I was wrong. I am a Christian, although it’s not preached on I have had a lot of affirmation in the Bible for it. I believe that any belief system can change a life. But Jesus is alright with me. Mindfulness meditation allows me to open up to prayers and how to let go of control and give up to win. be more aware of others feelings but overall just how to stop take a breath and take life one step at a time. Blessings
It will change your life
by Gloreeyuh on 2021/04/12 18:02
Headspace makes mediation accessible. It teaches in a way that anyone can understand. I am a better me because of it.
Good Material, but costly
by donnellwjr on 2021/04/12 17:29
The material on Headspace is pretty good. I’ve paid a year’s worth and can honestly say that I’ve not received the most use out of it. It’s mainly due to my anxiety that questions it’s usefulness and gets in the way of me using it regularly. Once I complete a session, I always feel better. I just have to do better with meditating. You could also receive similar types of led meditations on free platforms like Spotify and YouTube.
Good
by Amrodm1234 on 2021/04/12 14:52
Very calm voice
Love the exercise but....
by Jwebster3073 on 2021/04/12 08:53
I love the whole app, my only gripe and the reason I’m no longer using it is because the animations etc. look like an episode of Sesame Street and I feel like it’s borderline patronizing to adults. So I’m going with something that feels more adult.
Outrageous false advertising
by fatgreta on 2021/04/12 03:33
Don’t believe that there is any benefit for you here unless you pay for a subscription. EDIT: I was not in any way confused about your free offerings when I wrote this review.
Our Review.
by GPTerrica on 2021/04/12 02:42
We really like Headspace very soothing program. Nice.
Good ol headspace
by CJ_Boyzz on 2021/04/12 01:28
Headspace is such a great app, I mean I could use YouTube for meditation, sleep music and etc but headspace is more relaxing and reliable😁👌🏾👍🏾👌🏾. The only reason why I rated 4 stars is because I think we should be able to use everything on headspace free.😐
Harassing notifications
by dfpetrin on 2021/04/11 18:46
I have turned off all notifications in settings except for a daily meditation reminder. But every day I get notifications pushing Move Mode which I have zero interest in. Is the only way to opt out of your marketing spam to turn notifications off entirely? Because if so, I don’t think I have any use for this app. Isn’t the point of subscription models to be FREE from harassment? This is dishonest behavior, and making me reconsider my subscription. Edit: sent a messge to support as suggested. Been a week and no response, probably because the answer is, sorry you can’t just get a simple daily meditation reminder, we’ll stuff our extra marketing down your throat no matter what. Canceled my subscription, deleted the app, downloaded Insight Timer instead. Yet another vampire app trying to deceive you into giving it every moment of your waking life, to justify subscribing to endless variations of the same meditation script.

Too many males
by DattuGL on 2021/04/11 00:01
I wish there was more female representation on the guided meditations. More often than not, only Andy’s (the cofounder) voice is an option, and personally I find it somewhat stressful listening to him.
Headspace Meditation
by No monthly payments on 2021/04/10 17:31
Headspace is a great app for people and it’s good for our body. It helps decrease metabolism, lowers blood pressure and improve heart rate. Everyone needs to try this! It will help calm people when they’re stressed. But this is my opinion so I’m not forcing people to try it, but to give them an idea.
Wonderful program
by Ryan C. Dau on 2021/04/10 16:54
Absolutely life-changing. Couldn’t recommend Headspace highly enough.
Headspace is my Happy Place
by Earthyuppie on 2021/04/10 14:39
As a beginner to meditation, I couldn’t ask for a better community. The App brings it all together. Much thanks to Andy and the crew. Well done and thoughtful, creative and inspiring.
Absolutely a must!

Love this
A way to feel better
by Djzig on 2021/04/10 05:36
During the pandemic, being diagnosed with a life long illness, having so much anxiety and dread I found this app. I can honestly say that it has changed how I live! The amount of help, clarity, and calmness I get from the days that I practice meditation makes a dramatic difference. But like anything else it takes practice. I do notice the major differences in the days that I don’t practice. I can honestly say that headspace has given me a way to feel better.
Amazing
by Unown. on 2021/04/10 04:05
I use this to fall asleep cause I used to take 3 hours to fall asleep but I can fall asleep in 5 minutes with headspace.
Always good
by Smcleod2508 on 2021/04/09 15:09
I’ve been using headspace for years. It’s only gotten better. The meditations are so accessible and easy to follow. I meditated for years before starting headspace, and sometimes still on my own, but I’ll continue to use the app for as long as I can!
:)
by Kitsunekaat on 2021/04/09 07:46
I personally find it hard to sleep in silence, so this is personally a great app for me and I highly recommend to others who find it hard to sleep without rain or something playing in the background.
Good for grief
by Mimi McMurray on 2021/04/08 23:43
If you struggle with grief, whether it’s for yourself, a loved one, or just the state of the world at present, I highly recommend meditation. I know I need to meditate to make give my mind a break from the constant burden of grief, but just sitting still for 10-30 minutes doesn’t work for my ADHD brain. Having guided meditations takes the some of the pressure off, and I find Andy’s voice really soothing. Recently I’ve been going on guided runs and I find that it’s changed my mentality while running, which I also use as a coping mechanism for grief. If you’re like me, struggling with sadness and anxiety, wanting a break but not knowing how, this is a really great tool.

HeadSpace App
by C :) Chase on 2021/04/08 13:07
Best mediation App there is ! I love the group bundles of meditation because it focuses in on topics that you may be struggling with in your day to day life ( pain , managing anxiety, focus, pregnancy, appreciation, happiness) .
WORTH THE MONEY!!!
by Quincidence23 on 2021/04/08 12:35
It’s 6:34AM, I just finished a session and I’m ready to tackle my day! I try to headspace daily and whether it’s relaxation, help going to sleep, or just daily motivation I’m looking for, Andy and headspace are there to help.
Great meditations, need better sleep stories
by StephDLuvsMusic on 2021/04/08 11:09
I’m enjoying the daily meditations. They have great pace, great teachers and I love the option to choose the length of time. I wish they had better story options for sleep though. The sleep casts are ok but I prefer actual stories, not just describing a place. The incorporation of a wind down at the beginning is a great feature, however.
What a way to start each day!
by Live Life Aligned on 2021/04/08 11:02
I never would have believed that starting my day thinking about nothing could be so transforming. Terry
Crazy how helpful this is! Started using this year, have used to everyday since
by Es928376 on 2021/04/08 05:16
I’ve heard about meditation before but was skeptical about how helpful it can be. I started using the app based on a recommendation and also my own research on how to manage overwhelming situations/life events. The number one thing that kept coming up was meditation and now I know why! It has helped me manage the most overwhelming situations. I recommend to give it a try and start with short meditation times at first then work your way up if you can’t sit still for too long. The lessons and greater headspace I have gotten from meditating with this app are priceless.
AMAZING
by st.louisblueslover on 2021/04/08 04:50
I have been using headspace for over a year and a half and I have been amazed. Over the past year I have been going through some personal difficulties, but I could always count on headspace. This is because of Andy’s soothing voice, the amazing variety, the sleep tab, and many more services headspace offers. I have been a bit disappointed on how they have changed the platform. It is a bit harder to navigate and I don’t see everything right in front of me. That aside, this app is amazing and definitely worth it. You will fall asleep in minutes, discover new ways you can calm yourself down, and much more! Headspace also brings a great sense of community in the “wake up”, where you get to hear from the community, and the group meditations where you can really feel a sense of community. Headspace has done so much for me and I hope it will help you.
Took my money and closed my account
by KindPhilly on 2021/04/08 01:46
I am an immigrant with neurological condition. I signed up for a free a subscription using a code from a podcast to help me manage. They asked for my card numbers and I gave them. I cant access my account . I reached out to their tech support and tell them about me and my problem with the app. They then closed my account. I cant get any answers - refusing to solve my problem. They are fake nice
Wonderful ❤️
by Sucetty M. on 2021/04/07 14:30
This app is so so nice! I love the illustrations and how everything is well explained in terms of breathing and how to practice gratitude 🙏. Today I just want to say that I’m grateful for having an app that reminds about the present and how to be thankful all the time! :) 🟠
Lifetime membership, huge fan
by cygborg on 2021/04/07 13:19
I bought a lifetime membership to headspace years ago and it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I’ve been meditating almost every day in quarantine and it has helped me immensely. Headspace is always adding new content and it’s all really great. I love the new meditation teachers, especially Dora and Kassonga. Just try it out if you’re at all interested in meditation.
Privacy violations
by 36935107 on 2021/04/07 10:23
I did not give this app permission to my email address but I’m still getting daily emails. If this issue is not fixed the app developer could be fined or sued.
1/5

Charged me twice in a week’s time
by just tryin to get some sleep on 2021/04/07 04:23
I subscribed to this app last week at the monthly rate to try it out. Then last night it would not let me access my paid account without “subscribing” again, but this time charged me the annual amount with no trial time to figure out how to fix the issue. I am infuriated. That definitely doesn’t help me sleep at night. Update: after this review their customer service was great about figuring out why that happened. They helped me contact Apple to get a refund for the larger of the two charges. It’s still frustrating that you can long on so many ways and therefore get charged multiple ways. But I did appreciate the follow up. Just be careful to log on the same way every time.
Could not find any free programming
by h11111111h12 on 2021/04/07 03:54
Despite supposedly having free and paid branches, could bot find any free programming in the app. Was looking for sounds to sleep to. And I would not think it worth $12.99 monthly.
Audio stops when phone is shut off
by Iphone918 on 2021/04/06 21:43
So I downloaded this application for my anxiety and as I listen to the meditation my phone shuts off after a minute or so and when the phone shuts off the meditation stops immediately which doesn’t make sense. So do I have to constantly watch my phone to make sure it’s on while doing meditation? Im in the free trial period, but if I’m going to subscribe to this and pay $69.99 a year then I should at least be able to close my eyes and be relaxed while listening without my phone shutting off and stopping the audio.
App is okay but impossible to cancel subscription
by okccustomer1 on 2021/04/06 20:09
It is impossible to cancel the relatively expensive subscription without contacting support. This is disappointing for obvious reasons.
Clears my mind
by Annabun on 2021/04/06 17:37
Help a me to clear my mind before and after work to let me relax and enjoy my day. It helps to eliminate the stress that I feel with easy to follow sessions as well as having group sessions to experience this with others
Meh
by TaraSat on 2021/04/06 11:15
Not very user friendly. Feel like I have to dig & go through multiple screens to find things, which annoys me & defeats purpose of my calm mornings & trying to meditate.
Best app to get back into meditation

Meditations feel repetitive
by Equestrian83 on 2021/04/06 00:47
Feels repetitive
This is the BEST app by far for mindfulness
by Crazy Yorkie Lady on 2021/02/22 18:13
It’s almost embarrassing to say this, but I have been a “meditator” for about 30 years and I have to say that I never really got very much out of doing it. I tried so hard, but I’m finding out I never truly understood that “trying” to be a good meditator or mindful person, was missing what doing this was about. What I’m learning through this app is that “mindfulness” is about me - understanding myself first, and it’s a lot about acceptance. So with that understanding and acceptance I can begin to see “things” so much more clearly and why previous ways of thinking, particularly about myself, were holding me back from living my life and loving myself. And I’m finding that the more I practice self acceptance, the fears about living fully and going after what I want out of my life, are disappearing. The previous version of myself is rapidly becoming someone I only used to know, and this new ME is much more in line with who I’d always wanted to be. I’m able to try and do so much more, all while in the comfort that I am lovable, even if I fail at something. I simply dust myself off and try some more. This app has completely changed me and the way I’m able to appreciate all the good that’s in my life. And I’m worthy of going after the things I want for my life, while freeing me up to share my gifts with others and society in general. If this is where you find your life stalling out, this app will bring you back to yourself.
Facing down the rabbit hole
by KLC-MHFL on 2021/02/12 12:42
I discovered Headspace on Netflix. My life is a series of invitations to succumb to fear. My husband is a practicing psychologist who is on peritoneal dialysis for 10 hours every night and works remotely with patients for about 10 hours every day without complaint. We have been waiting for a kidney for two years. I am optimistic by nature but even if this was the only focus for concern it would be a lot. Unhelpfully, the list goes on with equivalent issues. I can’t work; I need to be on call because I am the go-to for support. I occupy my mind and time writing a book and renovating every room of our home one at a time amidst being available for nine blended (mostly grown) children and 5 grandkids, many of whom have special needs. I am busy but isolated like so many due to covid-19. Trying the Headspace series felt like meeting air; filling the natural and effortless need to breathe. It has provided me with a new lens through which to focus on challenges and see potential. I incorporate it into my waking routine at dawn and it positions me for whatever happens throughout the day, and differentiates a space that is my own. I turn 61 this month and for maybe the first time in a while, life feels lighter and brighter. It’s not about what you fear or can’t control or even the fact of fear. It’s about the lens through which you interpret your fears or challenges and making them your strengths and allies. Thank you Andy :-)
A Bright Spot in a Dark World
by Ashabashley on 2021/02/11 06:22
You won’t regret buying a Headspace subscription. I often joke with people that Headspace is the one thing I would want to take with me to a desert island. If I were to cancel all of my subscriptions today, Headspace is the one exception I would make. I’m a high school English teacher, and our administration put together a month-long mindfulness education program for our students shortly after I subscribed. I had already raved to many of them about the app and the benefits of taking a couple of minutes out of their day to sit and be present. Lo and behold, Andy pops up on the next slide as our Ted Talk speaker of the day! On a more serious note, I suffer from debilitating chronic pain. I’m currently on long-term disability and a leave of absence from the classroom. Mindfulness, and the courses on managing pain, have been a tremendous help in my journey. Not only that, but I struggle with insomnia. My favorite part of Headspace, because of my (admittedly) vivid imagination, are the sleepcasts. I love falling asleep to Rainday Antiques. I can’t imagine doing anything but that ever again. I have learned to manage stress and anxiety in a way that I had never thought was possible. I have meditated in the waiting room of The Cleveland Clinic before my appointments. I once laughed at the idea of mindfulness and meditation. Now it’s an integral part of my life. It’s part of my journey, and I think everyone could benefit from it.
The most useful thing I’ve done in 2020
by Kindly38 on 2021/01/18 17:14
This app has given me tools to deal with constant change. This past year, I’ve needed to pivot every day to face some new challenge outside as an essential worker, and at home in isolation with my partner. The tools I Iearned to use to be present in the moment and to accept change has benefited my partner and colleagues at work as much as my own peace of mind. I have very little control over my environment, but I can see my reaction, accept the emotions that rise up, and move on instead of getting lost or bound by them. This app has also benefited me by helping me get through insomnia. Sometimes it helps me get to sleep in the first place. Mostly it gives me tools to use to calm my mind and body when I wake up in the night buffeted by anxiety or lingering frustration from the day. Lastly, this app has given me a language to express the emotional upheaval and troubling questions that I used to just call anxiety. Naming what makes me feel upset has brought clarity to what can feel like a tempest at the time and allow me to look at my thoughts or, rather, face them. After acknowledging them, I can let them go. Sometimes I’m better at that than at other times. Regular exercise strengthens my focus, my ability to pivot and refocus, and builds roads of calm and quiet that the brain finds easier to fall into and travel due to constant use.
It’s a Miracle App!
by jlhuggins on 2021/02/08 19:19
This app has helped me so much! When I am suffering from stress, health anxiety, or fibro/stress related body pains I turn to this app and go through some meditations with the teachers. It’s an excellent way for me to relax. Calm my mind. Stop thinking about myself. And to recover in the moment. Hopefully in time this will help me heal, as previously I’ve just been getting worse and worse without any therapy since my therapist’s practice permanently shutdown from COVID. This has been a great help and is something I can just pull out of my pocket and sit in my bedroom for a bit to calm down. Well worth the 1 year subscription price I’ve paid. Thank you! 😊🙏🏻 *There is only one thing that I’d change. This would be for some of the workout audios. I need to walk a lot for a heart condition I have (which is a big cause of my health anxiety), and I’d love to see the audios for walks and runs to be a bit longer. The longest run audio I see is 20 minutes, when recommended cardio workout lengths realistically should be at least 30 minutes. I’d really like to have an audio similar to the bedtime audios that are lengthy, have soothing talk, and tips to reduce anxiety made to be listened while walking. And if there could be a variety to choose from. Overall this would be the only change I can think of. An hour long walk audio to help calm my mind. 😁❤️
Very good but expensive
by FortnitePro#1 on 2021/01/11 02:30
So I’ve been using headspace for quite awhile now and personally I think it’s great! But the thing is since I don’t have premium, I have to keep on repeating the same old things like the rain day antiques sleepcast I’ve heard that sleep cast so many times and now I keep getting annoyed with it. That goes the same with the other sleep stuff too like the sleep music I’ve heard “doze” so many times I wake up like every 30 minutes or so. Also goes the same with the two free wind downs. The first time I used the free wind downs I fell asleep instantly the second time after that I couldn’t sleep for ten minutes. So after that, I wanted to do a free trial for the premium but I didn’t realize I was short on money. Since most people do a free trial for like a week or so they cancel there payment the day before the payment is due. So I tried doing that but it asked for but then I realized they need to know my payment information before doing my free trial. I think it was because they don’t know if I’m gonna cancel my payment or actually do the payment. So yeah, I think this app is amazing it just needs to either lower down the price by like 3-4$ or maybe add one or two me free sleepcasts and same goes to the wind downs, and music. Thank You.
Now a Rewarding and Essential part of my Routine.
by SublimePastTime on 2018/04/23 15:13
I’ve been using the app religiously for about two weeks. After a recent ADD diagnosis, I thought it would be a good idea to start working meditation into my routine, and was willing to invest some resources into the guided regiment on Headspace. The problem had been nearly consuming my life and I was pretty frustrated. I was skeptical of “guided meditation” in particular, because I thought that someone talking you through the meditations through your headphones might defeat the purpose. I also have trouble sitting still in particular. I have not been disappointed. The app explicitly states that it is not intended to treat or cure attention deficit disorders, and I did not expect it to, but it significantly reduced the the severity of the problem almost overnight. I am also a collegiate music student, and I saw a tremendous difference in my practice routine and quality of playing as well. The content is very well organized and the methodology/philosophy is explained very thoroughly in fun-to-watch animations. I feel the difference at work and among friends. I just now put the app on the main dock in my phone, right beside the phone, messaging, and music apps. It is now a rewarding and essential part of my routine.
Too pricey for a college kid!
by Nick my name!! on 2018/11/25 16:45
I love this app. I tried the free trial and loved it. The guided meditations really make the work easy and I found myself in a inducing a meditative state without lots of effort. They literally have a guided meditation for any situation or mood so it feels like their library is limitless. Unfortunately my free trial ran out and I bought a few months of headspace. In a way buying the app encouraged me to use it because I was spending my own money so that was good. However, when I moved into my first apartment I didn’t have enough money to keep my subscription going. I would love to buy headspace for life but I just don’t have $300 extra dollars sitting around to spend. I also feel that the subscription is pricey for something i don’t always want to use everyday. On days where I wanted to take a break from using my phone I lost my meditation streak which was disappointing. Sometimes I have a great day and don’t feel the need for headspace, but the subscription still takes the money from my pocket. On days when I really have a particular funky mood headspace is great because I feel like it can guide me through any kind of funk. I just wish it wasn’t so pricey. Buy this app if you like the meditations and have the money, but if you don’t have the dough, free meditation may be the way to go.
Life changing
by vmonjian on 2020/10/04 01:59
This app and Andy’s gentle and soothing guidance in it have absolutely changed my life for the better and in a big way. I’ve been meditating using the Headspace app as regularly as I can with a run streak of 180 days once. The streaks do not really matter, but staying consistent does. I consider the guidance and wisdom that Andy imparts in the app therapeutic. Friends, family and colleagues regularly tell me how much more serene, kind and patient I have become even in very tough situations. Those attributes would have never been applied to me had it not been for this app. The packages are godsend, like on patience, kindness, generosity...etc. Each package has ten guided sessions. Once I’m done with one package I either start again (some I’ve done more than 20 times) or start another one of my favorite packages. No, I’m not paid to sponsor these guys. I have not only gotten it (I.e. paid) for myself, but for my wife too. I’ve also offered to pay for friends’ or relatives’ apps too. Don’t think twice about it. Read up on the amazing benefits of meditation (physical, emotional, even spiritual) and then just cough up whatever Headspace charges. It had been the best investment of money and time I have made in my life. No exaggeration.
Honestly life changing...
by Ghost Totz on 2019/05/21 05:10
As a student, husband, employee, supervisor, manager, etc. life can get ahead of me every single day and honestly will overwhelm me. I have been in a long battle with moderate/severe depression and anxiety disorder, and after medications were only numbing symptoms I thought I was a hopeless case. Something changed and I decided that I wanted to start really doing things in life. I’ve had this app for a while but I finally decided to try to use it more. I started for just sleep, but just sleep turned into using it to wake up, and when I feel stressed about work or when I’m studying, I just take a quick break. It’s honestly surreal how fast 10-20 minutes goes by when going through the guided meditation in the morning. All that said, this app is amazing, and I really recommend it to anyone dealing with any problems in their life, whether permanent or temporary. Let this help you, and go tackle your problems. Also, for my fellow students, you can go to their website and verify your student status and get the full access to the meditations for $10 a year, to make this app and company even more amazing. Keep up the awesome content Headspace! And thank you for helping me on my journey
I can’t recommend this enough
by MSUBSMPH on 2021/01/11 01:40
I downloaded Headspace when it was free for health care workers in 2020. I was pregnant at the time and was under a lot of stress at my job. I started with the pregnancy course on the app. This was so amazing. First of all, Andy’s voice is incredibly calming. Then the pregnancy meditation helped me feel closer to baby. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, and when I was less stressed, my glucose was lower. This app helped me a ton with that. Then, when I went to my 29 week check up, I had just read a work email I was very upset about. The nurse took my blood pressure and it was high. They sent me to the hospital for monitoring. While I was there I practiced the meditation I had learned and was able to get my blood pressure down so I could go home! The meditations also helped me get through labor! Now that I had my baby, I’m still using this app because it just helps me find calm in my crazy world of being and full time working mom during a pandemic. If you are at all interested in meditation, you need this app. I promise it’s worth the money. When my free subscription is over, I’m paying for it! I never write app reviews, but I just want everyone to know how great Headspace truly is.
Superior
by Gingerooney on 2020/01/05 00:54
As a TM practitioner I wasn't initially drawn to this app. However it was recommended repeatedly by health practitioners as I struggled to be consistent with my sitting practice. Finally I gave in and it's been a wonderful asset to my meditation practice. I use it as an anchor and I enjoy the presentations as well as the guided series and singles. The SOS and now the many other options are great. Being able to grab your phone and calm yourself in stressful times is amazing. Headspace has continued to improve adding more and more options and modules. You can stick with classic guided or semi guided meditation, or silence, add music or learn how to use mindfulness on a broad range of issues from speaking, sadness, grief ... you name it. I love the special section on sleep. The educational aspect is beyond compare and you can watch short videos. I still have a strong preference for Andy Puddicome’s voice and hope he never tires of doing this, but glad the options are there for others. This simply is the best app for meditation and for mindfulness. THE BEST. I highly recommend this to anyone--from those being introduced to meditation and/mindfulness to the experienced practitioner. You're in good hands here. Easy to use too. Very intuitive.
Helping me understand what meditation is.
by tgsnydermd on 2018/06/18 13:32
I started a self study in Buddhist meditation using the books “LovingKindness” by Sharon Salzberg and “A Path with Heart” by Jack Kornfield because I had lost touch with my inner peace that I had just 5 years ago. I found I could no longer turn to the Christian theology from my childhood, and I yet I need a sense of spirituality in my daily life. The two books have been helpful, and very slow going. They are easy to read, but hard to do. In fact, I’m still really in the most basic part which is loving and caring for self. That’s where Headspace came in, I needed to find a guided meditation because the books are more self guided. Having the voice of Andy Puddicombe walk me through what it means to meditate in the most basic terms helped me understand that I’m on the right path. Also, it has allowed me to progress in the practice of meditation even though on a personal level, I keep falling back into using mantras of self appreciation and acceptance now for more than a month. I find Headspace, along with the two aforementioned books, to be transformative in my inner game. I plan to visit a local Buddhist Temple soon to meet others with more experiences in this meditative practice.
Great resource!
by zigalellium on 2021/01/15 15:44
This is really helpful! The only reason I didn’t give a higher rating is because there’s a strong overlying tone of a sales pitch there. Which is unfortunate, because I think people would be able to see the value easier if there wasn’t a push for money after every meditation and for many of the things on the app people would want to explore. Kind of stalls progress of the meditation itself when you’ve just worked so hard to pull yourself back, only to be instantly asked for money right after. From a company stand point I also think it would be more beneficial to work on building value and then freely offering the option to see what monthly costs are and also show a detailed description of what’s involved with a paid membership. I know this has worked well financially for other services and I’ve seen increases in sales by simply looking at things from the customers perspective. And I feel like the customers perspective is a miss here :( However quite and easy fix and overall this app is amazing! It not only teaches the basics of meditation, but teaches different techniques as well. This makes it good for beginners all the way to experts. I truly believe that the basis of this app is pure in intention and I can see what a help it is to many people who walk the path of life.
Simply Excellent ! :-)
by FlyingLizardIXXI on 2019/09/20 14:04
I knew nothing about meditation when I started my journey about three years ago. I read Andy's book and I saw the potential to bring more calm and stability to my life. So I started using the app. I had a slow start. I tried it for several days and then dropped it for a while etc. Finally I gave meditation the priority it deserves and here I am… I just passed 600 days of meditation in a row without missing a day. I'm proud of that, but I still feel like a beginner. As Andy teaches, meditation can be a lifelong journey. I simply can't say enough positive about Headspace. I love it and I encourage you to try it! I have a couple of friends who use other "flavors" of meditation and I see no conflict between what my friends are learning and what I am learning. That gives me confidence that the lessons that Andy teaches are sound. Honestly my only concern is that Headspace will grow too large as a company and that Andy may not have time to be so actively involved in creating the content of the app. Or perhaps Andy might feel like he has completed his work with Headspace and moves on to new projects. I dearly hope that never happens. Bottom line: Very highly recommended. Enjoy! Paul in Vermont, USA
My kids and I LOVE headspace!!! <3
by Klaudia Fisher on 2018/02/26 04:48
I’ve been wanting to meditate for a while, and I just didn’t know how to, I’ve tried yoga and a couple other things, but never really got the time to make it a habit. I found this app and decided to give it a go given the reviews. It didn’t let me down. I love all the packs for different situations in life and the fact that you can meditate 1 min or as long as you can, so no more “I don’t have time” After the trial i decided to use the premium version and it was then when I discovered the kids section (angels sing and sunshine thru clouds please) it’s never been so easy to put my kids to bed! My kids LOVE Andy and ask for him every single night, 90% of the time they are asleep by the time the sleep meditation is over (5-6 min). They have asked to start hearing Andy when they wake up, too. As for me, I had been struggling with insomnia for a while, and when I did sleep my mind would keep going on and on about everything I had to do the next day, so I’d wake up feeling restless. I’ve been using headspace at bedtime and I’m out in like 5 min. I sleep better, my mind sleeps too. I’ve been using it for a couple months and there’s still SO much to explore. I just love it :)
The wonders of headspace
by Sav.Dragan on 2021/03/26 14:57
In my abnormal psychology class we learned anxiety is not just a fight or flight response but instead can be a future oriented response. Abnormal anxiety usually is characterized by presenting when there is no real danger. Therefore when I lay down in bed to sleep and I start getting an increase heart rate, feel extremely hot and sometimes nauseous at the idea of future situations and work that I have yet to do, it’s abnormal. Even if many people experience this is is abnormal because there is no real threat just my brain over thinking future situations. Therefore on my quest to look for ways to relax my mind before bed I downloaded headspace. I usually listen to a guided meditation before bed. Followed I will set one of their sleep music for 60 minutes and lay down. I now am normally asleep before the sleep music stops. Even though in my class we talked more about biological and psychological treatments, I felt as though there might be an easier way for me to deal with this anxiety. Headspace has created a way for me to clear my head before bed allowing for more and a greater quality of sleep. I would suggest this app to anyone, not even for just sleeping. But as a way it relax.
Love this app!!
by Chachey on 2020/12/01 14:01
So I started using this app because my boyfriend said that I needed to start meditating due to my high levels of stress (and how easily I get stressed and I have poor stress management) and my because I am very easily angered and to him I just overall seem unhappy with life. I am only 24 so my stress shouldn’t be what it is in my opinion. So I took his advice on meditation and did some research and found this app. I’m still in the free trial stages of it but I will most definitely buy is once it ends. The reason I give 4 start is because I wish there were more mindful activities because of my job. I wake up at 6 am and come home from anywhere between 5pm - 11pm depending on the day I have. So it would be nice to have more mindful activities where I can use the app an work or do things at home with out it being the same thing. Or more on commuting. I’m driving all day long so to have something I can listen to while driving that isn’t music or just for a commute home would be nice. But other than that I have no complaints! I love it and I hope it gets me where I would like to be. And that is to be happy and content with my life as it is now. And not get so angry with things. I am really excited to keep using this app!

I started meditating in high school during my senior year when I did a solo project on the Dalai Lama and Thich Naht Hanh. Meditation was rejuvenating and grounding. Fast forward the next 15 years and meditation was lost to the hustle and bustle of life. My work recently offered a trial of Headapace to a select few prior to launching for the entire team. I immediately signed up knowing although my current mind stated, “you don’t have time for that” but my deep mind stated “you need this!” And here I am remembering again the importance of living in the moment, taking in and appreciating the sounds, smells and feel of the world around me. Meditation got me through some very tough times as a teenager when I nearly lost my mother to a brain tumor and my father to mental illness. Now with the coronavirus pandemic, job insecurity and political unrest I again need to ground myself. Headspace allowed me to treasure again the here and now, to not only calm my flighty mind but feel my body the aches and tension releasing it. Just like physical health you must make the time to nourish your brain. 10 minutes a day is reasonable and will make a world of difference! Thank you Headapace for reminding me again to live in the moment and treasure the beauty of every day.
Such a cool app
by Cali1925 on 2019/01/23 19:16
It’s not that I was skeptical when it came to meditation, I just was unsure of what it was exactly, or what the goal should be. This app does an AMAZING job of explaining and easing you into meditation. It’s something you have to practice and implement into your routine. I haven’t had it for long, and I have only been doing the free “Basics” sessions, but wow I am so so impressed with the results. I don’t like to think I am a person who is just stressing herself all the time, but lately with a lot of life changes my body has been feeling a lot of tension and it has caused me horrible headaches. Whenever I meditate it relaxes me and relieves me of some of the pain. It also just gets me pumped for the day. Your emotional/mental health is so important!! Busy-ness kills, and meditating can help you take better care of yourself. This app is so well constructed. I normally don’t do subscriptions, but I’m gonna have to pay because it’s so worth it. The fact that you can choose if you wanna meditate for 3, 5, or 10 minutes? That’s awesome! So much detail. Also I personally like it way better than Calm, which is rated higher, not to mention the aesthetics are way more satisfying.
Everything I didn’t know I needed.

There’s so much to be said about how specific yet simple Headspace’s premise is. For the record, I meditate twice a day: right before I go to work, and the right after I come back home. I have been using the app for close to a month now, and I can already notice a lot of behavioral changes in myself. I respond better to situations that used to frustrate and/or upset me, and I feel much better equipped to deal with the various emotional ups and downs of daily life. To clarify something, this app is a tool for anyone to use. I used to be one of those people who thought meditation is pointless, that I wouldn’t be able to “shut down” my brain and prevent it from drifting off during a meditation session. None of that matters with Headspace. As long as you develop a habit of using the app, you will be better prepared and confident when dealing with the aforementioned feelings. Headspace has truly been a revolutionary discovery for me. As someone who has tried similar apps in the past, I can confidently say that no other app can match the sophisticated design, ease of use, and mindfulness that’s encapsulated by Headspace.
Recovery - what a difference
by g'damnit no f'n nickname on 2019/10/28 12:36
I have struggled with addiction, relapsing many times, having found it so difficult to be at ease without my coping mechanism (alcohol). In the past, I’d attempted meditation on my own, and found myself practicing at most once a day, for maybe 5 minutes, before wanting to jump out of my skin and do something else. With Headspace, the techniques are explained clearly and consistently, without it feeling like I’m just playing the same recorded guide over and over. It feels like Andy is personally training me in a slightly new or different way each session. As a result, I not only practice daily, but 3-4 times per day for at least 10 minutes each session. And I even look forward to it! What a difference this has made in my mood, my clarity, and most of all, my need for old bad habits. There’s even a 30 day program on coping with cravings. If you struggle with sobriety, or bad habits of any kind, you may find incorporating the practices taught in this app deep into your daily life will make the journey to wellness so much lighter and easier than it has been.
Thank You, But No Thank You
by Maddog3706 on 2018/04/14 17:37
I would like to start by thanking the creators of this app. I am a student and testing is coming up soon. This app has helped me in not only calming down and focusing on that, but also on my family situation right now. I (try to) use this app daily and it sets my day on a good course. Thank you. However, I am not sure for how long I will be able to say that. Once my Basics 1 course expires, I will have to pay insane amounts of money to “subscribe” to Headspace just so I am able to take different meditating courses, such as Focus, Kindness, or Sleep. It costs $400 to meditate for a lifetime (unlimited)! That’s enough to feed a family for 2 months! It feels like a demo you would find on the phones they have it the Apple Store: incomplete. Overall, the experience is great and the meditating is useful, but I feel that meditating should be available to everyone, not just people willing to shell out $13 a month or $95 a year. I would not recommend this app to friends because I don’t think they want to experience this disappointment. I love your app, just not your cost!
If only...
by Studying for life on 2018/12/29 06:05
At first I really loved this app and I didn&#39;t miss that some of the sessions we&#39;re locked and only for people who are subscribed but then I couldnt do the daily meditation feature because it started to lock all of them... I liked that with some packs you could do the first session to get a feel of what it it was about but then you would have to pay to get the rest of it. Because of this, for about six months, I was doing the basics pack (which is the only pack you get without paying) and so I didn&#39;t feel like meditating. I was losing all hope in this app until sleep by headspace came out. I have a lot of trouble sleeping and so this feature really helped me and I thought I could do as many sleepcasts i want but then..... As you could guess... It locked ALL OF THEM....now I can&#39;t meditate or sleep😔 if you have enough money to subscribe to this app, good for you because it&#39;s very nice and will help you a lot but if you can&#39;t subscribe, don&#39;t get your hopes up with this app. I just really wish it had more features for people who can&#39;t subscribe because in the end it leaves no options if you can&#39;t. If it had more options, I would be giving them at most four stars but because the don&#39;t, they&#39;re left with one. I really do wish I could keep this app but right now it&#39;s just taking up space😖
Mediation is surprisingly awesome!
by cagueni on 2018/12/28 15:34
Headspace has provided me with a way to cope with some of the anxieties of work and school life. I really enjoy that sense of “me-time” just spent focusing on my thoughts a feelings and dealing with them in what I feel is a healthy way. I somehow feel different after every session, more relaxed, more “centered” if you would. I don’t really have trouble going to sleep but some days my mind travels a mile per minute with thoughts of things I have yet to do. I find the sleepcasts they offer to be helpful during these times. The soothing sounds help me focus on shutting my body off for the night. I would recommend just listening to the casts they have available for unsubscribed users and seeing how you feel. The only gripe I have with the meditations they offer is that all of them seem very similar. They have many different packs that are supposed to cater to a specific area but this is only an illusion of variety. All meditations offer the same sort of exercises like focused breathing and mindfulness. I just wish that there were more exercises to make use of. Otherwise, I just can’t justify purchasing a yearly subscription for this service.
Loving it
by JessicaKate0919 on 2019/01/10 17:23
I’ve been using for four days and I can honestly say it has helped me tremendously. This isn’t my first attempt at meditation, but it has been my most successful and the attempt in which I’ve learned the most. It’s like the creators of this app got inside my head to figure out exactly what I needed to hear in order to understand and move forward, and then tailored the information just for me! I’m impressed, I’m incredibly grateful, and I’m so excited about my progress. In less than a week, I’m able to notice myself progressing mentally and emotionally, outside of the app in my daily life. I’ve yet to even subscribe, which I absolutely plan on doing once I don’t have a negative bank account (LOL), but the content available for free is quite phenomenal. Having just gone through “The Basics” a bit, I’m noticeably more calm and less irritable. I’m finding myself laughing more, and fighting less with my partner. I’m finding myself handling uncomfortable emotions and situations with patience towards myself and others. Thank you, Headspace. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
My mind has been blown!
by Jayes14 on 2019/02/20 17:56
I’m not usually one to write reviews, but Headspace is well worth the time it takes to write this! I love feeling like I have a coach, he may not respond to me or hear what I say, but he’s there getting me through this mental workout. Before Headspace came into my life, I was very sporadic with my emotions and wasn’t aware on how to fully control them.. to be honest I’m still not sure how to fully control them, but Headspace gives me the tools to stop intense/aggressive emotions before they emerge. I would also always be very overwhelmed with my thoughts and I’d get very anxious about what others thought or really anything dealing with the unknown. Now I’ve been more tamed, I’m more in control of my thoughts and emotions, I’m the driver of my vessel instead of the other way around. I’m incredibly thankful to have this app, if you’re a person who struggles with feeling in control of your being, I highly recommend giving this a try! I start my workday with a 10-minute meditation, and boy do I feel productive when I do that! Thanks Headspace for giving me the tools, much love!
Sleepcasts!
by Nik2378 on 2021/02/12 11:26
I use this app exclusively for the sleepcasts, so that’s the only feature I can comment on. I love them, and they’re the only way I can fall asleep now. I wish they were a bit longer, but I understand it’d be hard to record a story that’s hours long. I have a couple suggestions: When a sleepcast ends, can it just skip to the next sleepcast (or at least have that be an option in settings?). Also, I can only fall asleep to male voices, so I’m very limited to a few sleepcasts.. it’d be great if all stories were recorded by both a male and a female and we could choose which we’d like to listen to. Lastly, I really would like a setting where we can skip the breathing wind-downs. If not, then at least have a trigger where when you’ve already done 1 wind-down, then the next sleepcast you listen to should automatically skip this part. It’s frustrating wanting to dive right into a new story and having to go through the same breathing session you just did. I really hope you hear my input and take it into consideration! If not, I’ll send them via email to developers. :)
Headspace has helped me to establish a daily meditation practice
by islandgirlonafarm on 2019/02/11 14:33
I absolutely love Headspace 💆🏽‍♀️. I bought anannual membership on Groupon last year and gladly renewed when that had expired. It has helped me to establish a daily meditation practice. Meditation is something I’ve wanted to do but I didn’t know whom or what to listen to, or didn’t have a consistent discipline a routine around it. I love that Headspace has multiple meditations you can choose from, and you control how long the meditation is from 1 minute up to 30 minutes if you want ! There are even meditation courses about focus, stress, productivity - all the reasons we should even be meditating in the first place! I love the daily tracker that shows how many days in a row you’ve meditated and the total amount of minutes that I’ve meditated- it definitely keeps me motivated to want to continue to do it. I’ve definitely noticed a shift in my behavior over the past year and in my mindset since I have been meditating. I am more calm and less irritable and things don’t bother me as much.I highly recommend this app!
Accountability
by employee-turned-customer on 2019/01/02 03:58
I&#39;ve had some phases when I&#39;ve meditated regularly, but having this app gives me a sense of external accountability that has kept me on the wagon longer than ever before. The daily push notifications with words of mindfulness are definitely helpful as a reminder to make time, but I&#39;m really speaking more to the aspect of having a consistent structure and theme(s) to my mindful time. I&#39;ve also never done guided meditation per se before, and it&#39;s wonderful to have such a broad, deep, and wise resource that I can tap into to keep me on track until I&#39;m ready to move on to a new area of focus, of which HeadSpace has plenty to choose from. I use the app after work as a way to transition to my home life, and I often hit the ground running when I emerge from meditation with enthusiasm and focus for the rest of my day. I recommend the app for anyone at beginner or intermediate experience with mindfulness. Can&#39;t speak to more advanced meditators, as I still have a long way to go myself, but HeadSpace definitely makes me feel like I&#39;m on the right track.
Help but I see a problem
by Bg1216 on 2019/01/03 01:48
This app helped me in my day to day and I managed to alleviate the great anxiety I had as well as the depression I was going to have. But the problem that I see is the fact that I have to pay to have another type of course. Many teenagers [including myself] can not afford the app and we even tell our parents that the application helps us but they refuse to pay for something that would have to be free if it is for personal help. I&#39;m not saying that creators do not deserve money, but courses that help with anxiety and depression or students should not cost anything. But the sessions that are at work or walking I agree that they charge, but those that mostly older people and teenagers choose, should be free. And another problem that I see is the language, since I have some friends and most of them do not know much English but they have the application to relax but not achieve it because they do not know English. So it would help a lot if they managed to incorporate the language change for the comfort of the user.
An amazing app behind a pay wall
by Omegabuster125 on 2019/07/31 19:40
This app....is just amazing. It has everything that allows for a relaxing experience for those who have dealt with stress, of any kind, throughout their livelihoods. But at a cost, as effective as this app is, I would love to continue using it without having to worry about the subscription fee. Do not misunderstand me, I am not saying they do not deserve the funds to continue their efforts of reducing stress. Especially with how fluid and colorful the tutorial’s animations are and how silky smooth Andy’s voice is during the session. But I wholeheartedly believe that this app can reach its full potential if it was provided without a charging fee. A lot of teenagers, including myself, have a hard time dealing with their stress by themselves. They usually have to rely on depression medication and therapy sessions which even then, is not as effective due to the costs of these options. This app can possibly outmatch both options at once, if it was not facing the same issue. As it is, the app is fantastic in its performance of reducing stress and I highly recommend it to those who are interested.
My head is still on my shoulders...
by @-yaya69 on 2020/06/23 19:47
I always stressed myself out easily and then COVID came along... I had just gotten divorced, was a single mom of 3, schools had closed and the remote learning started, eventually I was furloughed from my job. I honestly didn’t know what to do with myself. I was trying my best to help my kids with school but I was having such a hard time getting out of bed because I was feeling so down. I couldn’t sleep, my mind was constantly racing, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I kept seeing the ads for headspace (free for the unemployed) and one day I decided to download the app. I am so glad I did. Ever since I started I’ve been able to slow my thoughts down. I don’t get so upset/angry as quickly as I used to and I’ve finally been able to sleep at night. My kids also enjoy meditating with me in the evening and now they ask me every night to listen to headspace when it’s time for bed. Thank you Headspace for helping me keep my sanity and allowing me to feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Life saver!
by itssss.megan on 2018/07/22 15:24
It had been very difficult to overcome all my emotions when so much was happening in my life and I had a lot to worry about but a lot to be happy and angry about, things were getting confusing and I was getting angry very easily to the point where I couldn’t sleep so I thought maybe I should try meditating and I searched everywhere for a good app to help guide me through fixing the stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, being un-calm and more and this definitely is doing the job! I meditate for 5 minutes every morning when I wake up(you can do 3,5,&amp;10 mins, you chose the how long and when). Since I’ve been using this I already feel 10x better and I can finally sleep. It helps be even during the day after I’ve already meditated. It sticks with you all day and it just feels really good, like a weight lifted off of your shoulders. I would definitely recommend this to everyone suffering from multiple things. It even has extra things you can use, for example, it has mediating to people who are coping with cancer! It’s just amazing!
Different and Transformative
by AlexaRoberta on 2018/05/23 12:45
I love headspace. I started with the three minute meditations. From the first meditation, my life improved. That is not an exaggeration. I have progressed through all of the three-minute and five of the ten-minute meditation sessions at this point. The ten-minute sessions take the cornerstone that you will build in the three-minute sessions and build on it using the same, very low-key but powerful narrator/guide and discrete, simple steps that will anchor you physically and emotionally to your present space. I am at this time in life going through extraordinarily difficult circumstances, and head space has made as much if not more of a difference positively for me than any medication or other meditative technique I have tried. For those not in any particularly difficult situation, headspace has the ability to enhance daily existence. I begin my day with Headspace and I make an additional 10 minutes in the middle of my workday for headspace. I hope that you try this app and add that it does as much for you as it has for me.
THIS!
by Juliecis on 2019/02/24 15:44
A meditation for all our human ailments. I have spent much of my life trying to improve character flaws that hold me back from where I want to be. I have long recovered from active alcoholism, yet continued to struggle with impatience, bursts of anger, and other very much unwanted flaws, simply lost on how to heal. 30 days into meditation with HeadSpace, and I feel like a new person... light, and with hope. Already, things that used to frustrate me are falling off, just noticing them, often laughing quietly at how free I feel or at how good it felt to not be reactive in a given situation. I traded counseling for yoga years ago and yoga has provided a great relief, both physically and spiritually. THIS! The guided meditations through HeadSpace... is the next, and perhaps the final, solution to the feeling of hopelessness and a life of daunting flaws. I am joyous to find that with simple and pleasant discipline, physically at rest, no “work” to do, I am learning how to let the weight of the world (of thought) go, making room for what is becoming such a natural place of peace and joy.
Great app, but only one voice (sort of)
by nicknamenickleback on 2019/06/05 19:21
This app has a lot of different courses ranging from basic 1, 2, and 3 to a “reframing loneliness” course etc.. The range of content is great, but my issue is that apart from the basics 1, 2, and 3 courses, as well as some walking meditations (voiced by a woman) everything I’ve heard so far is all done by the same guy. He has a job to do, to make sure he is a serene and calm presence, talking into your ear. But how he says things comes across as not being genuine at times. It’s totally random, and thankfully doesn’t happen too often, but sometimes I’ll have to skip one of the sessions because I just can’t relate to the way he’s saying things. It’ll come across like he is trying too hard to sound calm in his ‘sexy meditation voice’. He seems like a genuine dude, I think that just the sheer amount of courses they made sort of forced him to create habits in the way he says things, I speculate that it’s dependent on how many he had to record at any given time, but who knows. Overall this app has helped me greatly, but what I mentioned above still bothers me.
The best for a grieving mom.
by Scrapmypic on 2020/03/21 20:29
I am grieving the loss of my adult son. The series on grieving has helped the devastation I am experiencing. The mans voice is so kind and full of compassion. I have tried every one of these types of apps. For me this is the best one. There is a lot of content here. Thank you so much to the app makers and the man who does the the grief meditations. So it has been a year an half since I wrote that and I can say this is hands down the best of this sort of app. Thank the universe I found it. I have used many of the meditations and the sleep content. They just keep making the app better and better. Andy I have learned is the male voice on most of the meditations. His compassion comes thru his voice. There is so much wisdom and love here. I’m gushing a bit but I am just so grateful for this app. I believe there is something for anyone and everyone. Is is well worth the price. They are so good at adding new content and covering all most any situation you might find your self in. Thank you Andy you help me get thru each day and sleep at night.
I love Headspace !!!
by Pamela JL on 2021/01/12 18:06
I have been using the Headspace app for about 5 years now. From the very beginning I felt I was embarking on a magical journey - a journey that would teach me the tools I needed to lift myself out of feelings of constant fear and inadequacy. Tools that would help me open my heart and mind to new possibilities and a more peaceful and compassionate approach to myself and the world. With the gentle and insightful guidance of Andy and the other practitioners, I feel safe and supported in my efforts to face and walk through difficult times. I am able to embrace joy and be present for myself, others and my life as it is today. It is always going to be a daily practice, as it should be, for that is the essence of being in the moment. I am also thrilled at how Headspace has evolved to include so many different guided topics for meditation as well as adding exercise to the program! What better way to integrate mind and body. Thank you all for what you have done to create Headspace and allow it to thrive! In gratitude, Pamela Llewellyn
The app I never thought I needed
by kaizen3105 on 2018/08/30 15:39
I&#39;ve tried meditating on and off for a few years but could never stick with the practice. After I started using Headspace, I was hooked after day one. While it does seem like a hefty price tag, what it teaches me during a meditation session as well as how to incorporate the practice into every day life is priceless. Headspace takes a different approach than most other meditation/mindfulness apps by not only teaching you the techniques, but also teaching you how to apply mindfulness with everything that you do. The app has taught me how to recognize when I get lost in my thoughts and react appropriately. I even think of being mindful ahead of time when I know there is an event in my life that would have consumed my thoughts in the past. I would definitely recommend Headspace to everyone, even if you don&#39;t think you need it because it can reveal things about yourself and your mind that can help to improve your life in ways you didn&#39;t realize.
Great app however...
by carolineehall91 on 2019/06/18 01:30
The gamification of this app is counterintuitive. For example I had a streak of over 100 days. I was so proud of that and it kept me motivated to continue. However my streak got wiped and I’m not even sure why. My boyfriend joked that this app that’s supposed to help me relax and reframe thoughts has me upset because I missed a day. If I look at my journey I see that each session date is sequential and doesn’t miss a date. This is the second time this has happened to me. I don’t know why my streak gets erased, and sometimes I feel like it adds a day randomly. I don’t think this would bother me so much if I wasn’t paying for this. And I know that this feature of the app is the least important aspect or function of the app. But for a product that’s supposed to help you practice mindfulness and acceptance this doesn’t help the users. Now that my streak has reset for the second time I felt the need to review. I hope you can fix this bug. Or at least let users know how the streak is measured, because you can meditate each calendar day but that doesn’t mean it counts for your streak.
Transformation
by To4tn8 on 2018/10/06 12:20
Big word here above but it applies. I was a classic overstressed executive, choosing too much work and decompressing with alcohol every night. It was unsustainable, until I got cancer. So I took some research and a plane flight to a clinic in China. While here at the clinic for six weeks, I listened to headspace every day, sometimes in the morning when I wake up and sometimes before sleep at night. Cancer treatments did their job but the headspace was a key contributor to my healing. One of the modules on Headspace was centered on healing, or rehab, and this was focused visualization that fueled your mind to assist the body in healing. I loved it. I moved on to the nodule on sleep, a three-part series, and that has had an impact on a key area of need. My MRI is tomorrow, it will tell us if the tumors are gone. Naturally that is the result I and my family want, but the experience has been wonderful regardless. Headspace was a big part of that over the last six weeks. Thank you for developing such a wonderful program, it’s become part of my lifestyle,
Worth every $$$$
by martin726 on 2018/12/13 16:53
Due to my severe anxiety I have searched for any resource to help me maintain my anxiety. When I found Headspace, I felt comfortable proceeding with the free trial, but I had planned to cancel it once the trial expired. I figured,”do you really want to pay for someone to tell you to sit down, close your eyes and follow your breath?” There are videos online that can help. However! When I started using the app I saw its potential for achieving my goal of maintaining my anxiety. The app has a ton of courses and guides to help you with different aspects of your mind. They have guides and courses on using meditation to help with productivity, personal relationships and sleep. I’ve done many of the guides and courses and I will tell you that they have been extremely helpful! They’ve actually exposed me to different ways of approaching meditation that aims to tackle various issues associated with anxiety. I did subscribe, but because it’s for my mental and it’s a great app I find it to be worth every dollar.
Good and bad in some ways
by Maddie 678 on 2020/12/03 03:57
This is one of the most amazing apps i’ve ever tried for sleep, meditation and all of the things it offers. It quite an amazing app and has helped me calm down when I’m feeling angry, sad, or even when I’m TOO excited. This app has helped me with my anger issues that can happen often and that’s great but there are many problems at least for me in this app. One thing is that most of the things on this app are premium version, meaning that for those who don’t have much money, or for those who don’t want to spend their money there isn’t much variety to choose from. Another thing that happens is that at least for me it glitches and says it’s a free soundtrack or anything like that, But then it says “Sorry this isn’t working right now” And when I go to my recents it says its premium. I think this is a problem because it’s practically wasting our time trying to get the sound/music to play. That glitch may not be for everyone but it definitely bothers me. Headspace owner of your reading this, PLEASE fix these bugs!
Changed My Relationship With Anxiety
by rachelnotfromfriends on 2021/02/26 14:04
Have been using this app for years, since 2017. It has completely changed the way I manage my anxiety. Not only do they have a course for anxiety, but there are also SOS meditations that are super helpful when you’re in the middle of panic mode. Since I first got the app they have added so many new meditations, courses, and even instructors. It has grown with me as my meditation practice has grown and it is always a great day when I use the Headspace app. As far as the price it is definitely on the expensive side. I first started using the app when I was in college and was lucky to be in a financial situation where I could afford it. I know they are offering it for free to those who have been affected by the coronavirus. However, my one critique is that they should make a student version, so more people will have access to this life-changing app. Thank you Headspace for this amazing product! I will continue to be a customer for many more years, I am sure.
Life changing!!
by GambaFFesta1994 on 2021/01/24 04:01
Where do I start? This has changed my life in the best way I can ever imagine! I deal with a lot and i mean a lot (depression, anxiety, stress, etc &amp; the year 2020). I was in such an uncomfortable place with myself like i wasnt happy with myself, and i was my worst enemy and then I found Headspace on Netflix and I thought why not. I was never good with mediation I’ve tried it before and I thought it was a waste of my time, but wow was i wrong with this. It’s so much different and then i found the app and everyday i mediate! I’ve been working on my anger, my depression, focusing on me. Being kind to me and I’m telling you this has helped me so much. Each recording is about 10 - 15 minutes and Andy walks you through the mediation, helps you to focus on what you need to take care of yourself. If you’re having trouble with yourself or feeling like things dont go your way, please try this. Honestly I haven’t had a day where I’m feeling uncomfortable with myself or feeling depressed. It’s worth it
Hands-down the best guided meditation app
by erin mikula on 2017/12/16 18:05
I have attention-deficit disorder as well as generalized anxiety that affect my ability to “get out of my head”. Headspace has been a savior to me. It has helped me determine that there is a time and place for every feeling instead, where as before I would hate myself for having feelings that I did not want, which in turn made it very difficult to understand and accept how I was truly feeling. It has been a built-up habit over my 22 years of life, but this app has helped me to live a less-cluttered life. With that being said, along with this app, fitness has been a very important role in my life, especially running and yoga. When I stretch, I become more mindful. I am a subscriber, and I love that you have running and cycling as exercising meditations, but could you consider adding in a guided meditation for stretching as well? Thank you for all that you have done to change mine as well as millions of other peoples lives. You completely deserve your rating. 😊
Great features; trouble with record-keeping
by Carlyey on 2020/12/17 21:03
The meditations are great, and I’ve been finding the focus music feature really great for listening while working; it’s at least as good as the ambient music I typically listen to. My only complaint at the moment is that listening to the focus music counts toward minutes meditated, and then to Apple Health mindfulness minutes if you have that option on on. So if I listen to 3 hours of focus music while working, plus one morning meditation, it seems like I’ve meditated for 185 minutes, when I’ve really only done 3. And it seems to count the music toward my streak, too, which doesn’t really help me keep track of my progress in building a habit of mindfulness. Listening to focus-helping music while working—something I’ve always done—is totally different than actually meditating. It’s not a dealbreaker, of course—I can manually keep track—but it would be nice if the app let you distinguish between what’s real time spent with mindful practice, and what’s just listening to music while working.
Every meditation is the same
by Em122rm on 2018/04/14 03:47
I love the user interface on this app. I like the animations and the narrator. The app makes you want to meditate everyday and has definitely helped me keep a consistent practice. That in itself is very valuable. Unfortunately all of the meditations are pretty much exactly the same just repackaged under different themes. Essentially, if you do the basics (which you can get a taste of for free), that’s what all the other meditations are like. There’s no variety. They managed to package the same meditation under different themes by slapping on a different introductory quote. After that quote, you just repeat the same meditation. For example, you want a meditation that focuses on love? Well they just provide a little definition on what unconditional love is and then you do the exact same meditation you did in the basics package. I certainly don’t mind doing the same meditation for a month or so. But definitely not justifiable for an entire year. I would advice anyone against paying a whole year subscription for the app unless they want to do the same exact meditation daily.

Life Changing
by Wes Sindt on 2021/04/19 22:55
That’s all I want to say. Discovering meditation (via the use of Headspace) has done me so much good. Life changed.
Entirely worth it, this is the best app I have on my phone to date
by Joshua H' on 2021/04/19 18:38
This app has singlehandedly allowed me to get better sleep, become more confident, and relax when I’m in a stressful situation. However, this is not a “magic” app. This app teaches you the skills necessary to meditate on your own. It is a “teach a man to fish” par excelance type of app. Through it, I can go to sleep in 2 minutes or less at night, be rejuvenated during my day with a 5-minute meditation, and even call a company for my first ever job interview with a meditation for confidence or anxiety. This app is not able to be encapsulated in one review, but the 5-stars may as well be a given!
One year in, still love headspace!
by BeckyJo203 on 2021/04/19 16:52
I’ve been using this app for more than a year but since the chaos started last year I’ve been really looking for ways to help reduce my anxiety, keep focused while working from home and sleep better. I can’t say I use headspace every single day but on the days I do, I feel better! Love the newer additions of the daily plan, focus playlists and even exercises.
Kicked out
by WStaten on 2021/04/19 10:32
This app kicked me out when I was sleeping with music from the app and I have to sign in again. I don’t have that much else to say.
World Class!
by RonaldWA on 2021/04/19 02:27
If I could I would give this app 10 Stars! It goes above and beyond what you would expect from a mediation app and surpassed my expectations. There are way too many cool and useful features for me to try to explain. Do yourself a favor and give the free trial a go!
Best Ever Meditation
by Happy CA Senior on 2021/04/19 00:03
I could go on and on for all the benefits of this app. I love the inspiration, the heartfelt guidance and insights, blended with humor and humanity. It helps me daily with being present and in the vibration of love, kindness, compassion and simply loving bing a good life.
BUY RIGHT NOW
by nooney 🤪💗 on 2021/04/18 23:36

Closed Captioning
by nmendia on 2021/04/18 17:37
Would y’all ever consider closed captioning for deaf and hard of hearing users? — Update to response: Can you please pay Dora Kamau more than Andy? I’m not kidding. Please. So she can record everything in the app? Thank you
So glad that you added Dora
by ecraipcaa on 2021/04/18 16:37
I love this app so much. Helps keep me centered. And I love Dora’s approach. Thank you so much for adding her in! And thank you Dora!!
Headspace Is My Lifeline
by bbnhgte#st(knf( on 2021/04/18 15:04
Headspace is a rock in this crazy world. It is a friend when I’m feeling down. It’s inspiration when everything looks bleak. Andy keeps me sane and gives me hope every day.
Mental Health
by Tootall23 on 2021/04/18 14:35
Before I didn’t realize how beneficial meditation was to my life before I started using this app. I first watched the documentary and learned about how to meditate. And then this app presented itself and I took of with it. Very useful for those looking for different ways to benefit themselves mentally and emotionally!!
Lack of sleep
by Stargazer16729 on 2021/04/18 07:33
Wish there were more guided fall asleep meditations
Good app
by kireahm22 on 2021/04/17 23:09
I have heard of apps similar to this one before and figured I would give it a try to relax me since with finals are just around the corner and deadlines are getting closer. I decided to put my goal at reducing stress and anxiety and the first thing I got was prompoted to a “Feeling overwhelmed” talk down to get myself relaxed and calm. The voice was not all that calming and relaxing, but he did have an accent that was very mesmorizing that helped let go of some tension. After setting some goals for myself Headspace created a list of things for me to accomplish throughout the day and the first thing was to take five deep breaths. What I loved about this was the music was very calming, but still had some upbeats it helped with when we were holding, breathing in, and exhaling. Another great component was there was a little face that would do the exercise with you and when you would inhale it would smile. The way this app relates with anxiety and panic attacks is, I think this can be beneficial to help get our heart rates down, get us to focus on other things, and help us relax. I think this would be incredibly useful in situations of discomfort of nervousness, I know this would help me and many others. Breathing methods help center us, by doing the five breaths with the app helped me feel more in control and calm of what I was doing. I have shared this app with my family, as I know they have been going through some hard times lately and they could use something to relax and destress them. Stress can be hard to manage, and a lot of the talking “podcasts” seem to help with trying to get you to let go or trying to find other things to distract ourselves with so we dont become too overwhelmed. Overall, I think this app has some benefits it helps calm you, center you, and puts you at peace. It certainly helped my anxiety be more managable while doing assignments and it helped me get in the right direction for the next couple of hours with my work and overall wellness. I can definitely see myself using this in a store to distract myself from my anxiety because this type of stuff can be grounding.
Cool

Headspace review thing
by ZicosLemons on 2021/04/17 15:47
Personally, I love this app it helps me fall asleep in a blast, although I am rating this with 4 stars because most of the other features cost money, I don’t think you need to pay to be helped with sleep or anxiety or if you chose any of the other options.
Love this experience!
by E. Maxie on 2021/04/17 12:41
I use Headspace as an daily app experience for meditation and yoga. In as little as a minute, I’m refreshed in the moment to live a more relaxed and well-balanced lifestyle. So rich and full of diverse wellness practices. It’s my new favorite go to!
So relaxing
by vvvvvvvvviivvvv on 2021/04/17 05:04
This app is very relaxing and calming
I was freaking out
by nearbybridge on 2021/04/17 04:45
I was having a panic attack. I remember seeing a commercial about this app so I downloaded it, searched panic and listened to the meditation a few times in a row. It really calmed me down and I am really thankful.
Don’t like being told what to do
by Kind of cool yo on 2021/04/16 23:30
I really really don’t like being told what to do by privileged clinicians. So it’s nice to still have access to helpful resources. There’s a lot of life skills this app can help with. My work pays for it idk if I would pay for it myself. The voices and advice aren’t too pushy. A little bit uppity but at least not pushy. no matter what your background everyone wants more control in their life learning to work with yourself is how to get real control
The best app ever
by Gisby0522 on 2021/04/16 19:06
A bit of back information, I have anger issues, really bad, and when my sister and I get into fights I use this app to calm me down. I go to my room. And let this app carry me away. It is amazing and please support this app. It deserves so much for how much it helps people. This app will not waste your time. Meditating is so good for the mind. And there are free sessions. Please get this app. I think if everyone had a dose of meditation a day, it would help a lot.
Thank you
by heybloom on 2021/04/16 15:14
The best app out there for meditation and more! Thank you for creating headspace, there’s so much to help you calm
Life changing
by SDGilley on 2021/04/16 14:11
I stress less, sleep better, and I’m kinder. It’s simple, straightforward meditation. I used the free trial enough to realize it’s value to me and my peace. I recommend this app and program. I am excited and purchased the subscription!
Perfect for all ages
by livemusiclvr on 2021/04/16 13:25
Was brand new to meditating when I first got this app a few years ago. Even though I have some experience now, I still continue to use it. I really like that they are moving meditations and different series to help you through the various challenges in life. I also love that there’s a children’s section. My children ask for Andy by name when they have a nightmare or when they’ve had a rough day.
Broken audio
by nyc.red.RD on 2021/04/16 05:48
Audio was very broken during the meditation; there were also moments of repeated audio that were poorly edited (choppy).
Great app but...
by Billy is blowing bubbles on 2021/04/16 04:10
This app is made very well. The quality of the app is great, no glitches not too sure but no ads. I really like the thought they put into the app. I have rated it a three because you have to pay six dollars a month to get anything on the app. I have downloaded this app a very long time ago and everything was free and it worked amazing. I am just a young student who wants a good night of sleep. I can’t pay six dollars a month. If the things on the app were free, it would be five stars without a doubt. If you can pay the six dollars a month, you go for it, it really does help.

Headspace has really helped me ! I am excited to get on my phone everyday for its daily mindful activities.
Great app
by avttvatva on 2021/04/15 21:27
The best app ever and it calmed me down.
Amazing
by krifcu on 2021/04/15 16:49
I think headspace is amazing when I want to fall asleep I just go to the following asleep exercise and it helped me a lot it helps when you wake up and it’s very calming I recommend people to headspace once a week
New Today Tab is a bad change
by marge-aaron on 2021/04/15 15:29
Nothing like having a checklist of things to do on my meditation app home screen. Definitely not stressful at all. I love seeing a big list of things I need to do throughout the entire day. I love it when an algorithm picks a bunch of random videos and playlists and then makes me feel compelled to watch them. Very thoughtful design choice and definitely feels grounded in care for the user and not in helping some product manager in charge of workout videos on a meditation app get their content onto the Home Screen somehow. Again, I love feeling pressured by my meditation app. Great feeling.
A different space created with headspace
by Normie41 on 2021/04/15 13:45
The convenience of having a meditation aid as close as my phone has made a significant change in my ability to meditate regularly. The grief module helped me thru the loss of my husband; the pain module helped through my broken elbow recovery. Now as I go they the Pro series I am getting deeper into what meditation is all about. Then there’s yoga modules. I Can’t say enough about the difference having this app on my phone has made in my life. Thank you headspace
Beginner Friendly
by 254Naomi on 2021/04/15 13:19
Great app for beginners to practice meditation. I like the use of colors and talking guided meditation.
Best mediation app
by theraddiestmatty on 2021/04/15 13:12
I’ve been using Headspace for a little over 4 years daily. I’ve tried a handful of the other apps and for me this is very straightforward and easy to learn. Great app!
Headspace is my favorite app !
by Irisherin95 on 2021/04/15 08:08
I have had a subscription to this app for a very long time. I first started using it for sleep. I could never fall asleep... I would toss and turn for hrs, sometimes all night and not even get a min of sleep. This was extremely frustrating and it was affecting many aspects of my life in a negative way. I have chronic back pain, and I could never get comfortable, so I thought about this pain all night. My mind racing, knowing that I had work in the morning and I was just miserable. So, I started using the wind downs. I incorporated that with a beginners course on meditation. After some time and practice, I was beginning to see real improvement. Then I added the sleep stories, I didn’t think they would work at first, because I believed that the story would have me too focused on the story and not fall asleep. Again, after a week or two, I was falling asleep before the story ended. Then I did the pain course...to help me understand my relationship with pain. It did wonders. Over months I was dedicating at least one time a day to meditation. I also have anxiety, and have been working on that. But there is so much more on this app. Yoga, healthy eating, music, and a lot of helpful info and meditations. I have tried other apps while using this one. Some were pretty good and some just weren’t for me. This app is honestly an app I can’t live without. I love it! I am living a healthier lifestyle and also sleeping so much better. I recommend this app to ANYONE &amp; everyone. They add new courses and different aspects to it all the time. I will NEVER cancel this app. I have begun to look at life different. My mood is more positive, I am focusing more, and I encourage anyone looking for a place to start a meditation journey to start with this app. There’s so much information and I can’t go a day without it. It’s the best out there!
Fix the Apple Watch App
by Andrei_m17 on 2021/04/15 06:40
Can you guys finally fix the apple watch app? It’s literally useless, once it’s synced - that’s cool it’s works perfect, but the other day you open it and there just “Breathe mini” without your course/ favorite program e.t.c.
:)
by usachanj on 2021/04/15 04:27
This is the best app for meditation I’ve ever used
WHYYY
by Zachary.rb on 2021/04/15 04:21
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS IT MAKES NO SENSE JUST MAKE IT FREE CMON!!! Why isn’t FREE!!!!!!
This app is life changing!
by 8fuzzylegs on 2021/04/15 03:10
I started out with the Headspace episodes on Netflix and it inspired me to download the app, and it’s worth every penny! I realized I struggled a lot with insecurities and anxiety but after a few weeks of meditating daily I realized that there were deeper feelings causing those issues. It really helped me discover, cope with, and emotionally evolve to deepen my self love and my relationships with others. I am a more balanced, happier person and a lot of my frequent mood swings and frustrations have lessened dramatically, I am able to let things so easily and be at peace. I most certainly will be a life long meditator thanks to this app!
Has helped me stick with meditation for months
by HanFrag on 2021/04/15 02:09
Honestly this app is everything I need it to be.
Best app
by shnisa zubyat on 2021/04/14 16:13
This app is awesome I have trouble sleeping and stuff but this helps me a lot and when ever I’m stressed or sad or I can’t breathe that good this helps me you should try this app this app is the best!
Decepcionado todo es dinero
by Tipo normal tipo casual on 2021/04/14 02:13
Es increíble que deba de nuevo pagar por la aplicación que tampoco es tan económica.
Only one free item for sleep
by Julie in Alaska on 2021/04/13 20:55
Offering nothing but one option seems cheap and frustrating. Need more than one choice to call it an app with options
Awesome but expensive
by la_booger on 2021/04/13 20:41
The app is GREAT but update for no premium because on the first minute I said “will this have too many things I need to pay for” and the answer is yes
I love this app!
by awfsdd on 2021/04/13 20:22
I am so thankful that headspace was created. This app has helped me through the darkest times of my life i will forever be grateful💛
Wonderful experience
by Cari4321 on 2021/04/13 15:04
I signed up for a free year of headspace when the pandemic began and have been so impressed by both the app and the quality of the meditation courses and the sleep stories and meditations. I also think that the offer of an entire free year to folks who were financially impacted by the pandemic shows a real concern for mental health beyond pure financial gain from the people behind the company. So far, there have been options for both male and female voices which I appreciate, and I hope to see more diverse voices in the app moving forward. With some new voices on their roster from folks outside of the white community, it looks as though that’s something they are working towards. It’s been a valuable tool for me and I will be subscribing when my year runs out. Although it’s not a cheap subscription, if you can afford it I would definitely recommend.
Great, but where’s the support?
by Onkilter on 2021/04/13 12:24
I’ve been enjoying using the Headspace app for at least 17 days in a row... until today, when the app keeps buffering. I searched the app for app help, but there’s none to be found. I came here to the App Store and found an update, I updated, but still it is buffering. I went to the Headspace Facebook group, the FAQ freezes at a point saying Safari has to accept cookies (I already have Safari set properly). Headspace should be calming stress, not causing it.
Wonderful!
by rafam223 on 2021/04/13 12:21
As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression, Headspace has helped me through dealing with many difficult situations when they flare up. The courses are great to learn different techniques and methods to cope, and I love the feature that sets up a schedule for you each day with activities to meditate and reflect. The sleep section is amazing, and I use their sleep casts every night to sleep. I highly recommend Headspace!
Worth it
by The reviewer zzzpplkjshsbe on 2021/04/13 12:06
The cost of the subscription isn&#39;t terrible given the benefits of the program. Highly recommended.
Best Meditation App Ever!
by ibelieveinyou22 on 2021/04/13 11:39
Sometimes I put off meditation like I put off calling my blabbery aunt who never stops talking. I know I need to do it, but “later” always seems like a better time. Headspace helps by making the experience way easier by providing a fun and intuitive user interface, and with amazing guided meditations that leave me feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside. It feels like a massage for my brain, and I keep coming back for more after all these years.
Great app
by CRAZYkasie on 2021/04/13 02:24
I have had a lot of stress at the moment and headspace help a lot I love this app you should get it if you’re feeling stressed
Cant afford!
by 🦧kenna🦧 on 2021/04/13 02:15
I love this app so much but i just cannot afford the subscription! I come from a family with financial problems and it used to all be free. now with the paying i can barely do anything on the app..
Me

Thanks. My 26 year old put this on my phone. Learning to meditate.
Everyone should meditate
by travislloyd450 on 2021/04/12 18:56
Before my spiritual awakening and discovering my God, I thought meditation was for eastern religions, Buddhism, Hinduism, but I was wrong. I am a Christian, although it’s not preached on I have had a lot of affirmation in the Bible for it. I believe that any belief system can change a life. But Jesus is alright with me. Mindfulness meditation allows me to open up to prayers and how to let go of control and give up to win. be more aware of others feelings but overall just how to stop take a breath and take life one step at a time. Blessings
It will change your life
by Gloreeyuh on 2021/04/12 18:02
Headspace makes mediation accessible. It teaches in a way that anyone can understand. I am a better me because of it.
Good Material, but costly
by donnellwjr on 2021/04/12 17:29
The material on Headspace is pretty good. I’ve paid a year’s worth and can honestly say that I’ve not received the most use out of it. It’s mainly due to my anxiety that questions it’s usefulness and gets in the way of me using it regularly. Once I complete a session, I always feel better. I just have to do better with meditating. You could also receive similar types of led meditations on free platforms like Spotify and YouTube.
Good
by Amrodm1234 on 2021/04/12 14:52
Very calm voice
Love the exercise but....
by Jwebster3073 on 2021/04/12 08:53
I love the whole app, my only gripe and the reason I’m no longer using it is because the animations etc. look like an episode of Sesame Street and I feel like it’s borderline patronizing to adults. So I’m going with something that feels more adult.
Outrageous false advertising
by fatgreta on 2021/04/12 03:33
Don’t believe that there is any benefit for you here unless you pay for a subscription. EDIT: I was not in any way confused about your free offerings when I wrote this review.
Our Review.
by GPTerrica on 2021/04/12 02:42
We really like Headspace very soothing program. Nice.
Good ol headspace

Headspace is such a great app, I mean I could use YouTube for meditation, sleep music and etc but headspace is more relaxing and reliable😁👌🏾👍🏾👌🏾. The only reason why I rated 4 stars is because I think we should be able to use everything on headspace free.😐
Harassing notifications
by dfpetrin on 2021/04/11 18:46
I have turned off all notifications in settings except for a daily meditation reminder. But every day I get notifications pushing Move Mode which I have zero interest in. Is the only way to opt out of your marketing spam to turn notifications off entirely? Because if so, I don’t think I have any use for this app. Isn’t the point of subscription models to be FREE from harassment? This is dishonest behavior, and making me reconsider my subscription. Edit: sent a messge to support as suggested. Been a week and no response, probably because the answer is, sorry you can’t just get a simple daily meditation reminder, we’ll stuff our extra marketing down your throat no matter what. Canceled my subscription, deleted the app, downloaded Insight Timer instead. Yet another vampire app trying to deceive you into giving it every moment of your waking life, to justify subscribing to endless variations of the same meditation script.

Too many males
by DattuGL on 2021/04/11 00:01
I wish there was more female representation on the guided meditations. More often than not, only Andy’s (the cofounder) voice is an option, and personally I find it somewhat stressful listening to him.
Headspace Meditation
by No monthly payments on 2021/04/10 17:31
Headspace is a great app for people and it’s good for our body. It helps decrease metabolism, lowers blood pressure and improve heart rate. Everyone needs to try this! It will help calm people when they’re stressed. But this is my opinion so I’m not forcing people to try it, but to give them an idea.
Wonderful program
by Ryan C. Dau on 2021/04/10 16:54
Absolutely life-changing. Couldn’t recommend Headspace highly enough.
Headspace is my Happy Place
by Earthyuppie on 2021/04/10 14:39
As a beginner to meditation, I couldn’t ask for a better community. The App brings it all together. Much thanks to Andy and the crew. Well done and thoughtful, creative and inspiring.
Absolutely a must!

A way to feel better
by Djzig on 2021/04/10 05:36
During the pandemic, being diagnosed with a life long illness, having so much anxiety and dread I found this app. I can honestly say that it has changed how I live! The amount of help, clarity, and calmness I get from the days that I practice meditation makes a dramatic difference. But like anything else it takes practice. I do notice the major differences in the days that I don’t practice. I can honestly say that headspace has given me a way to feel better.
Amazing
by Unown. on 2021/04/10 04:05
I use this to fall asleep cause I used to take 3 hours to fall asleep but I can fall asleep in 5 minutes with headspace.
Always good
by Smcleod2508 on 2021/04/09 15:09
I’ve been using headspace for years. It’s only gotten better. The meditations are so accessible and easy to follow. I meditated for years before starting headspace, and sometimes still on my own, but I’ll continue to use the app for as long as I can!
:)
by Kitsunekaat on 2021/04/09 07:46
I personally find it hard to sleep in silence, so this is personally a great app for me and I highly recommend to others who find it hard to sleep without rain or something playing in the background.
Good for grief
by Mimi McMurray on 2021/04/08 23:43
If you struggle with grief, whether it’s for yourself, a loved one, or just the state of the world at present, I highly recommend meditation. I know I need to meditate to make give my mind a break from the constant burden of grief, but just sitting still for 10-30 minutes doesn’t work for my ADHD brain. Having guided meditations takes the some of the pressure off, and I find Andy’s voice really soothing. Recently I’ve been going on guided runs and I find that it’s changed my mentality while running, which I also use as a coping mechanism for grief. If you’re like me, struggling with sadness and anxiety, wanting a break but not knowing how, this is a really great tool.

HeadSpace App
by C :) Chase on 2021/04/08 13:07
Best mediation App there is ! I love the group bundles of meditation because it focuses in on topics that you may be struggling with in your day to day life ( pain , managing anxiety, focus, pregnancy, appreciation, happiness) .
WORTH THE MONEY!!!
by Quincidence23 on 2021/04/08 12:35
It’s 6:34AM, I just finished a session and I’m ready to tackle my day! I try to headspace daily and whether it’s relaxation, help going to sleep, or just daily motivation I’m looking for, Andy and headspace are there to help.
Great meditations, need better sleep stories
by StephDLuvsMusic on 2021/04/08 11:09
I’m enjoying the daily meditations. They have great pace, great teachers and I love the option to choose the length of time. I wish they had better story options for sleep though. The sleep casts are ok but I prefer actual stories, not just describing a place. The incorporation of a wind down at the beginning is a great feature, however.
What a way to start each day!
by Live Life Aligned on 2021/04/08 11:02
I never would have believed that starting my day thinking about nothing could be so transforming. Terry
Crazy how helpful this is! Started using this year, have used to everyday since
by Es928376 on 2021/04/08 05:16
I’ve heard about meditation before but was skeptical about how helpful it can be. I started using the app based on a recommendation and also my own research on how to manage overwhelming situations/life events. The number one thing that kept coming up was meditation and now I know why! It has helped me manage the most overwhelming situations. I recommend to give it a try and start with short meditation times at first then work your way up if you can’t sit still for too long. The lessons and greater headspace I have gotten from meditating with this app are priceless.
AMAZING
by st.louisblueslover on 2021/04/08 04:50
I have been using headspace for over a year and a half and I have been amazed. Over the past year I have been going through some personal difficulties, but I could always count on headspace. This is because of Andy’s soothing voice, the amazing variety, the sleep tab, and many more services headspace offers. I have been a bit disappointed on how they have changed the platform. It is a bit harder to navigate and I don’t see everything right in front of me. That aside, this app is amazing and definitely worth it. You will fall asleep in minutes, discover new ways you can calm yourself down, and much more! Headspace also brings a great sense of community in the “wake up”, where you get to hear from the community, and the group meditations where you can really feel a sense of community. Headspace has done so much for me and I hope it will help you.
Took my money and closed my account
by KindPhilly on 2021/04/08 01:46
I am an immigrant with neurological condition. I signed up for a free a subscription using a code from a podcast to help me manage. They asked for my card numbers and I gave them. I cant access my account . I reached out to their tech support and tell them about me and my problem with the app. They then closed my account. I cant get any answers - refusing to solve my problem. They are fake nice
Wonderful ❤️
by Sucetty M. on 2021/04/07 14:30
This app is so so nice! I love the illustrations and how everything is well explained in terms of breathing and how to practice gratitude 🙏. Today I just want to say that I’m grateful for having an app that reminds about the present and how to be thankful all the time! :) 🟠
Lifetime membership, huge fan
by cygborg on 2021/04/07 13:19
I bought a lifetime membership to headspace years ago and it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I’ve been meditating almost every day in quarantine and it has helped me immensely. Headspace is always adding new content and it’s all really great. I love the new meditation teachers, especially Dora and Kassonga. Just try it out if you’re at all interested in meditation.
Privacy violations
by 36935107 on 2021/04/07 10:23
I did not give this app permission to my email address but I’m still getting daily emails. If this issue is not fixed the app developer could be fined or sued.

Charged me twice in a week’s time
by just tryin to get some sleep on 2021/04/07 04:23
I subscribed to this app last week at the monthly rate to try it out. Then last night it would not let me access my paid account without “subscribing” again, but this time charged me the annual amount with no trial time to figure out how to fix the issue. I am infuriated. That definitely doesn’t help me sleep at night. Update: after this review their customer service was great about figuring out why that happened. They helped me contact Apple to get a refund for the larger of the two charges. It’s still frustrating that you can long on so many ways and therefore get charged multiple ways. But I did appreciate the follow up. Just be careful to log on the same way every time.
Could not find any free programming
by h11111111h12 on 2021/04/07 03:54
Despite supposedly having free and paid branches, could bot find any free programming in the app. Was looking for sounds to sleep to. And I would not think it worth $12.99 monthly.
Audio stops when phone is shut off
by Iphone918 on 2021/04/06 21:43
So I downloaded this application for my anxiety and as I listen to the meditation my phone shuts off after a minute or so and when the phone shuts off the meditation stops immediately which doesn’t make sense. So do I have to constantly watch my phone to make sure it’s on while doing meditation? Im in the free trial period, but if I’m going to subscribe to this and pay $69.99 a year then I should at least be able to close my eyes and be relaxed while listening without my phone shutting off and stopping the audio.
App is okay but impossible to cancel subscription
by okccustomer1 on 2021/04/06 20:09
It is impossible to cancel the relatively expensive subscription without contacting support. This is disappointing for obvious reasons.
Clears my mind

Help a me to clear my mind before and after work to let me relax and enjoy my day. It helps to eliminate the stress that I feel with easy to follow sessions as well as having group sessions to experience this with others
Meh
by TaraSat on 2021/04/06 11:15
Not very user friendly. Feel like I have to dig &amp; go through multiple screens to find things, which annoys me &amp; defeats purpose of my calm mornings &amp; trying to meditate.

Meditations feel repetitive
by Equestrian83 on 2021/04/06 00:47
Feels repetitive
This is the BEST app by far for mindfulness
by Crazy Yorkie Lady on 2021/02/22 18:13
It’s almost embarrassing to say this, but I have been a “meditator” for about 30 years and I have to say that I never really got very much out of doing it. I tried so hard, but I’m finding out I never truly understood that “trying” to be a good meditator or mindful person, was missing what doing this was about. What I’m learning through this app is that “mindfulness” is about me - understanding myself first, and it’s a lot about acceptance. So with that understanding and acceptance I can begin to see “things” so much more clearly and why previous ways of thinking, particularly about myself, were holding me back from living my life and loving myself. And I’m finding that the more I practice self acceptance, the fears about living fully and going after what I want out of my life, are disappearing. The previous version of myself is rapidly becoming someone I only used to know, and this new ME is much more in line with who I’d always wanted to be. I’m able to try and do so much more, all while in the comfort that I am lovable, even if I fail at something. I simply dust myself off and try some more. This app has completely changed me and the way I’m able to appreciate all the good that’s in my life. And I’m worthy of going after the things I want for my life, while freeing me up to share my gifts with others and society in general. If this is where you find your life stalling out, this app will bring you back to yourself.
Facing down the rabbit hole
by KLC-MHFL on 2021/02/12 12:42
I discovered Headspace on Netflix. My life is a series of invitations to succumb to fear. My husband is a practicing psychologist who is on peritoneal dialysis for 10 hours every night and works remotely with patients for about 10 hours every day without complaint. We have been waiting for a kidney for two years. I am optimistic by nature but even if this was the only focus for concern it would be a lot. Unhelpfully, the list goes on with equivalent issues. I can’t work; I need to be on call because I am the go-to for support. I occupy my mind and time writing a book and renovating every room of our home one at a time amidst being available for nine blended (mostly grown) children and 5 grandkids, many of whom have special needs. I am busy but isolated like so many due to covid-19. Trying the Headspace series felt like meeting air; filling the natural and effortless need to breathe. It has provided me with a new lens through which to focus on challenges and see potential. I incorporate it into my waking routine at dawn and it positions me for whatever happens throughout the day, and differentiates a space that is my own. I turn 61 this month and for maybe the first time in a while, life feels lighter and brighter. It’s not about what you fear or can’t control or even the fact of fear. It’s about the lens through which you interpret your fears or challenges and making them your strengths and allies. Thank you Andy :-)
A Bright Spot in a Dark World
by Ashabashley on 2021/02/11 06:22
You won’t regret buying a Headspace subscription. I often joke with people that Headspace is the one thing I would want to take with me to a desert island. If I were to cancel all of my subscriptions today, Headspace is the one exception I would make. I’m a high school English teacher, and our administration put together a month-long mindfulness education program for our students shortly after I subscribed. I had already raved to many of them about the app and the benefits of taking a couple of minutes out of their day to sit and be present. Lo and behold, Andy pops up on the next slide as our Ted Talk speaker of the day! On a more serious note, I suffer from debilitating chronic pain. I’m currently on long-term disability and a leave of absence from the classroom. Mindfulness, and the courses on managing pain, have been a tremendous help in my journey. Not only that, but I struggle with insomnia. My favorite part of Headspace, because of my (admittedly) vivid imagination, are the sleepcasts. I love falling asleep to Rainday Antiques. I can’t imagine doing anything but that ever again. I have learned to manage stress and anxiety in a way that I had never thought was possible. I have meditated in the waiting room of The Cleveland Clinic before my appointments. I once laughed at the idea of mindfulness and meditation. Now it’s an integral part of my life. It’s part of my journey, and I think everyone could benefit from it.
The most useful thing I’ve done in 2020
by Kindly38 on 2021/01/18 17:14
This app has given me tools to deal with constant change. This past year, I’ve needed to pivot every day to face some new challenge outside as an essential worker, and at home in isolation with my partner. The tools I Iearned to use to be present in the moment and to accept change has benefited my partner and colleagues at work as much as my own peace of mind. I have very little control over my environment, but I can see my reaction, accept the emotions that rise up, and move on instead of getting lost or bound by them. This app has also benefited me by helping me get through insomnia. Sometimes it helps me get to sleep in the first place. Mostly it gives me tools to use to calm my mind and body when I wake up in the night buffeted by anxiety or lingering frustration from the day. Lastly, this app has given me a language to express the emotional upheaval and troubling questions that I used to just call anxiety. Naming what makes me feel upset has brought clarity to what can feel like a tempest at the time and allow me to look at my thoughts or, rather, face them. After acknowledging them, I can let them go. Sometimes I’m better at that than at other times. Regular exercise strengthens my focus, my ability to pivot and refocus, and builds roads of calm and quiet that the brain finds easier to fall into and travel due to constant use.
It’s a Miracle App!
by jlhuggins on 2021/02/08 19:19
This app has helped me so much! When I am suffering from stress, health anxiety, or fibro/stress related body pains I turn to this app and go through some meditations with the teachers. It’s an excellent way for me to relax. Calm my mind. Stop thinking about myself. And to recover in the moment. Hopefully in time this will help me heal, as previously I’ve just been getting worse and worse without any therapy since my therapist’s practice permanently shutdown from COVID. This has been a great help and is something I can just pull out of my pocket and sit in my bedroom for a bit to calm down. Well worth the 1 year subscription price I’ve paid. Thank you! 😊🙏🏻 *There is only one thing that I’d change. This would be for some of the workout audios. I need to walk a lot for a heart condition I have (which is a big cause of my health anxiety), and I’d love to see the audios for walks and runs to be a bit longer. The longest run audio I see is 20 minutes, when recommended cardio workout lengths realistically should be at least 30 minutes. I’d really like to have an audio similar to the bedtime audios that are lengthy, have soothing talk, and tips to reduce anxiety made to be listened while walking. And if there could be a variety to choose from. Overall this would be the only change I can think of. An hour long walk audio to help calm my mind. 😁❤️
Very good but expensive
by FortnitePro#1 on 2021/01/11 02:30
So I’ve been using headspace for quite awhile now and personally I think it’s great! But the thing is since I don’t have premium, I have to keep on repeating the same old things like the rain day antiques sleepcast I’ve heard that sleep cast so many times and now I keep getting annoyed with it. That goes the same with the other sleep stuff too like the sleep music I’ve heard “doze” so many times I wake up like every 30 minutes or so. Also goes the same with the two free wind downs. The first time I used the free wind downs I fell asleep instantly the second time after that I couldn’t sleep for ten minutes. So after that, I wanted to do a free trial for the premium but I didn’t realize I was short on money. Since most people do a free trial for like a week or so they cancel there payment the day before the payment is due. So I tried doing that but it asked for but then I realized they need to know my payment information before doing my free trial. I think it was because they don’t know if I’m gonna cancel my payment or actually do the payment. So yeah, I think this app is amazing it just needs to either lower down the price by like 3-4$ or maybe add one or two me free sleepcasts and same goes to the wind downs, and music. Thank You.
Now a Rewarding and Essential part of my Routine.
by SublimePastTime on 2018/04/23 15:13
I’ve been using the app religiously for about two weeks. After a recent ADD diagnosis, I thought it would be a good idea to start working meditation into my routine, and was willing to invest some resources into the guided regiment on Headspace. The problem had been nearly consuming my life and I was pretty frustrated. I was skeptical of “guided meditation” in particular, because I thought that someone talking you through the meditations through your headphones might defeat the purpose. I also have trouble sitting still in particular. I have not been disappointed. The app explicitly states that it is not intended to treat or cure attention deficit disorders, and I did not expect it to, but it significantly reduced the the severity of the problem almost overnight. I am also a collegiate music student, and I saw a tremendous difference in my practice routine and quality of playing as well. The content is very well organized and the methodology/philosophy is explained very thoroughly in fun-to-watch animations. I feel the difference at work and among friends. I just now put the app on the main dock in my phone, right beside the phone, messaging, and music apps. It is now a rewarding and essential part of my routine.
Too pricey for a college kid!
by Nick my name!! on 2018/11/25 16:45
I love this app. I tried the free trial and loved it. The guided meditations really make the work easy and I found myself in a inducing a meditative state without lots of effort. They literally have a guided meditation for any situation or mood so it feels like their library is limitless. Unfortunately my free trial ran out and I bought a few months of headspace. In a way buying the app encouraged me to use it because I was spending my own money so that was good. However, when I moved into my first apartment I didn’t have enough money to keep my subscription going. I would love to buy headspace for life but I just don’t have $300 extra dollars sitting around to spend. I also feel that the subscription is pricey for something i don’t always want to use everyday. On days where I wanted to take a break from using my phone I lost my meditation streak which was disappointing. Sometimes I have a great day and don’t feel the need for headspace, but the subscription still takes the money from my pocket. On days when I really have a particular funky mood headspace is great because I feel like it can guide me through any kind of funk. I just wish it wasn’t so pricey. Buy this app if you like the meditations and have the money, but if you don’t have the dough, free meditation may be the way to go.
Life changing
by vmonjian on 2020/10/04 01:59
This app and Andy’s gentle and soothing guidance in it have absolutely changed my life for the better and in a big way. I’ve been meditating using the Headspace app as regularly as I can with a run streak of 180 days once. The streaks do not really matter, but staying consistent does. I consider the guidance and wisdom that Andy imparts in the app therapeutic. Friends, family and colleagues regularly tell me how much more serene, kind and patient I have become even in very tough situations. Those attributes would have never been applied to me had it not been for this app. The packages are godsend, like on patience, kindness, generosity...etc. Each package has ten guided sessions. Once I’m done with one package I either start again (some I’ve done more than 20 times) or start another one of my favorite packages. No, I’m not paid to sponsor these guys. I have not only gotten it (I.e. paid) for myself, but for my wife too. I’ve also offered to pay for friends’ or relatives’ apps too. Don’t think twice about it. Read up on the amazing benefits of meditation (physical, emotional, even spiritual) and then just cough up whatever Headspace charges. It had been the best investment of money and time I have made in my life. No exaggeration.
Honestly life changing...
by Ghost Totz on 2019/05/21 05:10
As a student, husband, employee, supervisor, manager, etc. life can get ahead of me every single day and honestly will overwhelm me. I have been in a long battle with moderate/severe depression and anxiety disorder, and after medications were only numbing symptoms I thought I was a hopeless case. Something changed and I decided that I wanted to start really doing things in life. I’ve had this app for a while but I finally decided to try to use it more. I started for just sleep, but just sleep turned into using it to wake up, and when I feel stressed about work or when I’m studying, I just take a quick break. It’s honestly surreal how fast 10-20 minutes goes by when going through the guided meditation in the morning. All that said, this app is amazing, and I really recommend it to anyone dealing with any problems in their life, whether permanent or temporary. Let this help you, and go tackle your problems. Also, for my fellow students, you can go to their website and verify your student status and get the full access to the meditations for $10 a year, to make this app and company even more amazing. Keep up the awesome content Headspace! And thank you for helping me on my journey
I can’t recommend this enough
by MSUBSMPH on 2021/01/11 01:40
I downloaded Headspace when it was free for health care workers in 2020. I was pregnant at the time and was under a lot of stress at my job. I started with the pregnancy course on the app. This was so amazing. First of all, Andy’s voice is incredibly calming. Then the pregnancy meditation helped me feel closer to baby. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, and when I was less stressed, my glucose was lower. This app helped me a ton with that. Then, when I went to my 29 week check up, I had just read a work email I was very upset about. The nurse took my blood pressure and it was high. They sent me to the hospital for monitoring. While I was there I practiced the meditation I had learned and was able to get my blood pressure down so I could go home! The meditations also helped me get through labor! Now that I had my baby, I’m still using this app because it just helps me find calm in my crazy world of being and full time working mom during a pandemic. If you are at all interested in meditation, you need this app. I promise it’s worth the money. When my free subscription is over, I’m paying for it! I never write app reviews, but I just want everyone to know how great Headspace truly is.
Superior
by Gingerooney on 2020/01/05 00:54
As a TM practitioner I wasn&#39;t initially drawn to this app. However it was recommended repeatedly by health practitioners as I struggled to be consistent with my sitting practice. Finally I gave in and it&#39;s been a wonderful asset to my meditation practice. I use it as an anchor and I enjoy the presentations as well as the guided series and singles. The SOS and now the many other options are great. Being able to grab your phone and calm yourself in stressful times is amazing. Headspace has continued to improve adding more and more options and modules. You can stick with classic guided or semi guided meditation, or silence, add music or learn how to use mindfulness on a broad range of issues from speaking, sadness, grief ... you name it. I love the special section on sleep. The educational aspect is beyond compare and you can watch short videos. I still have a strong preference for Andy Puddicome’s voice and hope he never tires of doing this, but glad the options are there for others. This simply is the best app for meditation and for mindfulness. THE BEST. I highly recommend this to anyone--from those being introduced to meditation and/mindfulness to the experienced practitioner. You&#39;re in good hands here. Easy to use too. Very intuitive.
Helping me understand what meditation is.
by tgsnydermd on 2018/06/18 13:32
I started a self study in Buddhist meditation using the books “LovingKindness” by Sharon Salzberg and “A Path with Heart” by Jack Kornfield because I had lost touch with my inner peace that I had just 5 years ago. I found I could no longer turn to the Christian theology from my childhood, and I yet I need a sense of spirituality in my daily life. The two books have been helpful, and very slow going. They are easy to read, but hard to do. In fact, I’m still really in the most basic part which is loving and caring for self. That’s where Headspace came in, I needed to find a guided meditation because the books are more self guided. Having the voice of Andy Puddicombe walk me through what it means to meditate in the most basic terms helped me understand that I’m on the right path. Also, it has allowed me to progress in the practice of meditation even though on a personal level, I keep falling back into using mantras of self appreciation and acceptance now for more than a month. I find Headspace, along with the two aforementioned books, to be transformative in my inner game. I plan to visit a local Buddhist Temple soon to meet others with more experiences in this meditative practice.
Great resource!
by zigalellium on 2021/01/15 15:44
This is really helpful! The only reason I didn’t give a higher rating is because there’s a strong overlying tone of a sales pitch there. Which is unfortunate, because I think people would be able to see the value easier if there wasn’t a push for money after every meditation and for many of the things on the app people would want to explore. Kind of stalls progress of the meditation itself when you’ve just worked so hard to pull yourself back, only to be instantly asked for money right after. From a company stand point I also think it would be more beneficial to work on building value and then freely offering the option to see what monthly costs are and also show a detailed description of what’s involved with a paid membership. I know this has worked well financially for other services and I’ve seen increases in sales by simply looking at things from the customers perspective. And I feel like the customers perspective is a miss here :( However quite and easy fix and overall this app is amazing! It not only teaches the basics of meditation, but teaches different techniques as well. This makes it good for beginners all the way to experts. I truly believe that the basis of this app is pure in intention and I can see what a help it is to many people who walk the path of life.
Simply Excellent ! :-)

I knew nothing about meditation when I started my journey about three years ago. I read Andy&#39;s book and I saw the potential to bring more calm and stability to my life. So I started using the app. I had a slow start. I tried it for several days and then dropped it for a while etc. Finally I gave meditation the priority it deserves and here I am… I just passed 600 days of meditation in a row without missing a day. I&#39;m proud of that, but I still feel like a beginner. As Andy teaches, meditation can be a lifelong journey. I simply can&#39;t say enough positive about Headspace. I love it and I encourage you to try it! I have a couple of friends who use other &#34;flavors&#34; of meditation and I see no conflict between what my friends are learning and what I am learning. That gives me confidence that the lessons that Andy teaches are sound. Honestly my only concern is that Headspace will grow too large as a company and that Andy may not have time to be so actively involved in creating the content of the app. Or perhaps Andy might feel like he has completed his work with Headspace and moves on to new projects. I dearly hope that never happens. Bottom line: Very highly recommended. Enjoy! Paul in Vermont, USA
My kids and I LOVE headspace!!! <3
by Klaudia Fisher on 2018/02/26 04:48
I’ve been wanting to meditate for a while, and I just didn’t know how to, I’ve tried yoga and a couple other things, but never really got the time to make it a habit. I found this app and decided to give it a go given the reviews. It didn’t let me down. I love all the packs for different situations in life and the fact that you can meditate 1 min or as long as you can, so no more “I don’t have time” After the trial i decided to use the premium version and it was then when I discovered the kids section (angels sing and sunshine thru clouds please) it’s never been so easy to put my kids to bed! My kids LOVE Andy and ask for him every single night, 90% of the time they are asleep by the time the sleep meditation is over (5-6 min). They have asked to start hearing Andy when they wake up, too. As for me, I had been struggling with insomnia for a while, and when I did sleep my mind would keep going on and on about everything I had to do the next day, so I’d wake up feeling restless. I’ve been using headspace at bedtime and I’m out in like 5 min. I sleep better, my mind sleeps too. I’ve been using it for a couple months and there’s still SO much to explore. I just love it :)
The wonders of headspace
by Sav.Dragan on 2021/03/26 14:57
In my abnormal psychology class we learned anxiety is not just a fight or flight response but instead can be a future oriented response. Abnormal anxiety usually is characterized by presenting when there is no real danger. Therefore when I lay down in bed to sleep and I start getting an increase heart rate, feel extremely hot and sometimes nauseous at the idea of future situations and work that I have yet to do, it’s abnormal. Even if many people experience this is is abnormal because there is no real threat just my brain over thinking future situations. Therefore on my quest to look for ways to relax my mind before bed I downloaded headspace. I usually listen to a guided meditation before bed. Followed I will set one of their sleep music for 60 minutes and lay down. I now am normally asleep before the sleep music stops. Even though in my class we talked more about biological and psychological treatments, I felt as though there might be an easier way for me to deal with this anxiety. Headspace has created a way for me to clear my head before bed allowing for more and a greater quality of sleep. I would suggest this app to anyone, not even for just sleeping. But as a way it relax.
Love this app!!
by Chachey on 2020/12/01 14:01
So I started using this app because my boyfriend said that I needed to start meditating due to my high levels of stress (and how easily I get stressed and I have poor stress management) and my because I am very easily angered and to him I just overall seem unhappy with life. I am only 24 so my stress shouldn’t be what it is in my opinion. So I took his advice on meditation and did some research and found this app. I’m still in the free trial stages of it but I will most definitely buy is once it ends. The reason I give 4 start is because I wish there were more mindful activities because of my job. I wake up at 6 am and come home from anywhere between 5pm - 11pm depending on the day I have. So it would be nice to have more mindful activities where I can use the app an work or do things at home with out it being the same thing. Or more on commuting. I’m driving all day long so to have something I can listen to while driving that isn’t music or just for a commute home would be nice. But other than that I have no complaints! I love it and I hope it gets me where I would like to be. And that is to be happy and content with my life as it is now. And not get so angry with things. I am really excited to keep using this app!
New to Headspace Old to meditation
by fawayadventures on 2020/04/16 12:08
I started meditating in high school during my senior year when I did a solo project on the Dalai Lama and Thich Naht Hanh. Meditation was rejuvenating and grounding. Fast forward the next 15 years and meditation was lost to the hustle and bustle of life. My work recently offered a trial of Headapace to a select few prior to launching for the entire team. I immediately signed up knowing although my current mind stated, “you don’t have time for that” but my deep mind stated “you need this!” And here I am remembering again the importance of living in the moment, taking in and appreciating the sounds, smells and feel of the world around me. Meditation got me through some very tough times as a teenager when I nearly lost my mother to a brain tumor and my father to mental illness. Now with the coronavirus pandemic, job insecurity and political unrest I again need to ground myself. Headspace allowed me to treasure again the here and now, to not only calm my flighty mind but feel my body the aches and tension releasing it. Just like physical health you must make the time to nourish your brain. 10 minutes a day is reasonable and will make a world of difference! Thank you Headapace for reminding me again to live in the moment and treasure the beauty of every day.
Such a cool app
by Cali1925 on 2019/01/23 19:16
It’s not that I was skeptical when it came to meditation, I just was unsure of what it was exactly, or what the goal should be. This app does an AMAZING job of explaining and easing you into meditation. It’s something you have to practice and implement into your routine. I haven’t had it for long, and I have only been doing the free “Basics” sessions, but wow I am so so impressed with the results. I don’t like to think I am a person who is just stressing herself all the time, but lately with a lot of life changes my body has been feeling a lot of tension and it has caused me horrible headaches. Whenever I meditate it relaxes me and relieves me of some of the pain. It also just gets me pumped for the day. Your emotional/mental health is so important!! Busy-ness kills, and meditating can help you take better care of yourself. This app is so well constructed. I normally don’t do subscriptions, but I’m gonna have to pay because it’s so worth it. The fact that you can choose if you wanna meditate for 3, 5, or 10 minutes? That’s awesome! So much detail. Also I personally like it way better than Calm, which is rated higher, not to mention the aesthetics are way more satisfying.
Everything I didn’t know I needed.
by sfairops on 2018/08/28 04:05
There’s so much to be said about how specific yet simple Headspace’s premise is. For the record, I meditate twice a day: right before I go to work, and the right after I come back home. I have been using the app for close to a month now, and I can already notice a lot of behavioral changes in myself. I respond better to situations that used to frustrate and/or upset me, and I feel much better equipped to deal with the various emotional ups and downs of daily life. To clarify something, this app is a tool for anyone to use. I used to be one of those people who thought meditation is pointless, that I wouldn’t be able to “shut down” my brain and prevent it from drifting off during a meditation session. None of that matters with Headspace. As long as you develop a habit of using the app, you will be better prepared and confident when dealing with the aforementioned feelings. Headspace has truly been a revolutionary discovery for me. As someone who has tried similar apps in the past, I can confidently say that no other app can match the sophisticated design, ease of use, and mindfulness that’s encapsulated by Headspace.
Recovery - what a difference
by g'damnit no f'n nickname on 2019/10/28 12:36
I have struggled with addiction, relapsing many times, having found it so difficult to be at ease without my coping mechanism (alcohol). In the past, I’d attempted meditation on my own, and found myself practicing at most once a day, for maybe 5 minutes, before wanting to jump out of my skin and do something else. With Headspace, the techniques are explained clearly and consistently, without it feeling like I’m just playing the same recorded guide over and over. It feels like Andy is personally training me in a slightly new or different way each session. As a result, I not only practice daily, but 3-4 times per day for at least 10 minutes each session. And I even look forward to it! What a difference this has made in my mood, my clarity, and most of all, my need for old bad habits. There’s even a 30 day program on coping with cravings. If you struggle with sobriety, or bad habits of any kind, you may find incorporating the practices taught in this app deep into your daily life will make the journey to wellness so much lighter and easier than it has been.
Thank You, But No Thank You
by Maddog3706 on 2018/04/14 17:37
I would like to start by thanking the creators of this app. I am a student and testing is coming up soon. This app has helped me in not only calming down and focusing on that, but also on my family situation right now. I (try to) use this app daily and it sets my day on a good course. Thank you. However, I am not sure for how long I will be able to say that. Once my Basics 1 course expires, I will have to pay insane amounts of money to “subscribe” to Headspace just so I am able to take different meditating courses, such as Focus, Kindness, or Sleep. It costs $400 to meditate for a lifetime (unlimited)! That’s enough to feed a family for 2 months! It feels like a demo you would find on the phones they have it the Apple Store: incomplete. Overall, the experience is great and the meditating is useful, but I feel that meditating should be available to everyone, not just people willing to shell out $13 a month or $95 a year. I would not recommend this app to friends because I don’t think they want to experience this disappointment. I love your app, just not your cost!
If only...
by Studying for life on 2018/12/29 06:05
At first I really loved this app and I didn&#39;t miss that some of the sessions we&#39;re locked and only for people who are subscribed but then I couldnt do the daily meditation feature because it started to lock all of them... I liked that with some packs you could do the first session to get a feel of what it it was about but then you would have to pay to get the rest of it. Because of this, for about six months, I was doing the basics pack (which is the only pack you get without paying) and so I didn&#39;t feel like meditating. I was losing all hope in this app until sleep by headspace came out. I have a lot of trouble sleeping and so this feature really helped me and I thought I could do as many sleepcasts i want but then..... As you could guess... It locked ALL OF THEM....now I can&#39;t meditate or sleep😔 if you have enough money to subscribe to this app, good for you because it&#39;s very nice and will help you a lot but if you can&#39;t subscribe, don&#39;t get your hopes up with this app. I just really wish it had more features for people who can&#39;t subscribe because in the end it leaves no options if you can&#39;t. If it had more options, I would be giving them at most four stars but because the don&#39;t, they&#39;re left with one. I really do wish I could keep this app but right now it&#39;s just taking up space😖
Mediation is surprisingly awesome!
by cagueni on 2018/12/28 15:34
Headspace has provided me with a way to cope with some of the anxieties of work and school life. I really enjoy that sense of “me-time” just spent focusing on my thoughts a feelings and dealing with them in what I feel is a healthy way. I somehow feel different after every session, more relaxed, more “centered” if you would. I don’t really have trouble going to sleep but some days my mind travels a mile per minute with thoughts of things I have yet to do. I find the sleepcasts they offer to be helpful during these times. The soothing sounds help me focus on shutting my body off for the night. I would recommend just listening to the casts they have available for unsubscribed users and seeing how you feel. The only gripe I have with the meditations they offer is that all of them seem very similar. They have many different packs that are supposed to cater to a specific area but this is only an illusion of variety. All meditations offer the same sort of exercises like focused breathing and mindfulness. I just wish that there were more exercises to make use of. Otherwise, I just can’t justify purchasing a yearly subscription for this service.
Loving it
by JessicaKate0919 on 2019/01/10 17:23
I’ve been using for four days and I can honestly say it has helped me tremendously. This isn’t my first attempt at meditation, but it has been my most successful and the attempt in which I’ve learned the most. It’s like the creators of this app got inside my head to figure out exactly what I needed to hear in order to understand and move forward, and then tailored the information just for me! I’m impressed, I’m incredibly grateful, and I’m so excited about my progress. In less than a week, I’m able to notice myself progressing mentally and emotionally, outside of the app in my daily life. I’ve yet to even subscribe, which I absolutely plan on doing once I don’t have a negative bank account (LOL), but the content available for free is quite phenomenal. Having just gone through “The Basics” a bit, I’m noticeably more calm and less irritable. I’m finding myself laughing more, and fighting less with my partner. I’m finding myself handling uncomfortable emotions and situations with patience towards myself and others. Thank you, Headspace. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
My mind has been blown!
by Jayes14 on 2019/02/20 17:56
I’m not usually one to write reviews, but Headspace is well worth the time it takes to write this! I love feeling like I have a coach, he may not respond to me or hear what I say, but he’s there getting me through this mental workout. Before Headspace came into my life, I was very sporadic with my emotions and wasn’t aware on how to fully control them.. to be honest I’m still not sure how to fully control them, but Headspace gives me the tools to stop intense/aggressive emotions before they emerge. I would also always be very overwhelmed with my thoughts and I’d get very anxious about what others thought or really anything dealing with the unknown. Now I’ve been more tamed, I’m more in control of my thoughts and emotions, I’m the driver of my vessel instead of the other way around. I’m incredibly thankful to have this app, if you’re a person who struggles with feeling in control of your being, I highly recommend giving this a try! I start my workday with a 10-minute meditation, and boy do I feel productive when I do that! Thanks Headspace for giving me the tools, much love!
Sleepcasts!
by Nik2378 on 2021/02/12 11:26
I use this app exclusively for the sleepcasts, so that’s the only feature I can comment on. I love them, and they’re the only way I can fall asleep now. I wish they were a bit longer, but I understand it’d be hard to record a story that’s hours long. I have a couple suggestions: When a sleepcast ends, can it just skip to the next sleepcast (or at least have that be an option in settings?). Also, I can only fall asleep to male voices, so I’m very limited to a few sleepcasts.. it’d be great if all stories were recorded by both a male and a female and we could choose which we’d like to listen to. Lastly, I really would like a setting where we can skip the breathing wind-downs. If not, then at least have a trigger where when you’ve already done 1 wind-down, then the next sleepcast you listen to should automatically skip this part. It’s frustrating wanting to dive right into a new story and having to go through the same breathing session you just did. I really hope you hear my input and take it into consideration! If not, I’ll send them via email to developers. :)
Headspace has helped me to establish a daily meditation practice
by islandgirlonafarm on 2019/02/11 14:33
I absolutely love Headspace 💆🏽‍♀️. I bought anannual membership on Groupon last year and gladly renewed when that had expired. It has helped me to establish a daily meditation practice. Meditation is something I’ve wanted to do but I didn’t know whom or what to listen to, or didn’t have a consistent discipline a routine around it. I love that Headspace has multiple meditations you can choose from, and you control how long the meditation is from 1 minute up to 30 minutes if you want ! There are even meditation courses about focus, stress, productivity - all the reasons we should even be meditating in the first place! I love the daily tracker that shows how many days in a row you’ve meditated and the total amount of minutes that I’ve meditated- it definitely keeps me motivated to want to continue to do it. I’ve definitely noticed a shift in my behavior over the past year and in my mindset since I have been meditating. I am more calm and less irritable and things don’t bother me as much.I highly recommend this app!
Accountability
by employee-turned-customer on 2019/01/02 03:58
I&#39;ve had some phases when I&#39;ve meditated regularly, but having this app gives me a sense of external accountability that has kept me on the wagon longer than ever before. The daily push notifications with words of mindfulness are definitely helpful as a reminder to make time, but I&#39;m really speaking more to the aspect of having a consistent structure and theme(s) to my mindful time. I&#39;ve also never done guided meditation per se before, and it&#39;s wonderful to have such a broad, deep, and wise resource that I can tap into to keep me on track until I&#39;m ready to move on to a new area of focus, of which HeadSpace has plenty to choose from. I use the app after work as a way to transition to my home life, and I often hit the ground running when I emerge from meditation with enthusiasm and focus for the rest of my day. I recommend the app for anyone at beginner or intermediate experience with mindfulness. Can&#39;t speak to more advanced meditators, as I still have a long way to go myself, but HeadSpace definitely makes me feel like I&#39;m on the right track.
Help but I see a problem
by Bg1216 on 2019/01/03 01:48
This app helped me in my day to day and I managed to alleviate the great anxiety I had as well as the depression I was going to have. But the problem that I see is the fact that I have to pay to have another type of course. Many teenagers [including myself] can not afford the app and we even tell our parents that the application helps us but they refuse to pay for something that would have to be free if it is for personal help. I&#39;m not saying that creators do not deserve money, but courses that help with anxiety and depression or students should not cost anything. But the sessions that are at work or walking I agree that they charge, but those that mostly older people and teenagers choose, should be free. And another problem that I see is the language, since I have some friends and most of them do not know much English but they have the application to relax but not achieve it because they do not know English. So it would help a lot if they managed to incorporate the language change for the comfort of the user.
An amazing app behind a pay wall
by Omegabuster125 on 2019/07/31 19:40
This app....is just amazing. It has everything that allows for a relaxing experience for those who have dealt with stress, of any kind, throughout their livelihoods. But at a cost, as effective as this app is, I would love to continue using it without having to worry about the subscription fee. Do not misunderstand me, I am not saying they do not deserve the funds to continue their efforts of reducing stress. Especially with how fluid and colorful the tutorial’s animations are and how silky smooth Andy’s voice is during the session. But I wholeheartedly believe that this app can reach its full potential if it was provided without a charging fee. A lot of teenagers, including myself, have a hard time dealing with their stress by themselves. They usually have to rely on depression medication and therapy sessions which even then, is not as effective due to the costs of these options. This app can possibly outmatch both options at once, if it was not facing the same issue. As it is, the app is fantastic in its performance of reducing stress and I highly recommend it to those who are interested.
My head is still on my shoulders...
by @-yaya69 on 2020/06/23 19:47
I always stressed myself out easily and then COVID came along... I had just gotten divorced, was a single mom of 3, schools had closed and the remote learning started, eventually I was furloughed from my job. I honestly didn’t know what to do with myself. I was trying my best to help my kids with school but I was having such a hard time getting out of bed because I was feeling so down. I couldn’t sleep, my mind was constantly racing, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I kept seeing the ads for headspace (free for the unemployed) and one day I decided to download the app. I am so glad I did. Ever since I started I’ve been able to slow my thoughts down. I don’t get so upset/angry as quickly as I used to and I’ve finally been able to sleep at night. My kids also enjoy meditating with me in the evening and now they ask me every night to listen to headspace when it’s time for bed. Thank you Headspace for helping me keep my sanity and allowing me to feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Life saver!
by itssss.megan on 2018/07/22 15:24
It had been very difficult to overcome all my emotions when so much was happening in my life and I had a lot to worry about but a lot to be happy and angry about, things were getting confusing and I was getting angry very easily to the point where I couldn’t sleep so I thought maybe I should try meditating and I searched everywhere for a good app to help guide me through fixing the stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, being un-calm and more and this definitely is doing the job! I meditate for 5 minutes every morning when I wake up(you can do 3,5,&amp;10 mins, you chose the how long and when). Since I’ve been using this I already feel 10x better and I can finally sleep. It helps be even during the day after I’ve already meditated. It sticks with you all day and it just feels really good, like a weight lifted off of your shoulders. I would definitely recommend this to everyone suffering from multiple things. It even has extra things you can use, for example, it has mediating to people who are coping with cancer! It’s just amazing!
Different and Transformative
by AlexaRoberta on 2018/05/23 12:45
I love headspace. I started with the three minute meditations. From the first meditation, my life improved. That is not an exaggeration. I have progressed through all of the three-minute and five of the ten-minute meditation sessions at this point. The ten-minute sessions take the cornerstone that you will build in the three-minute sessions and build on it using the same, very low-key but powerful narrator/guide and discrete, simple steps that will anchor you physically and emotionally to your present space. I am at this time in life going through extraordinarily difficult circumstances, and head space has made as much if not more of a difference positively for me than any medication or other meditative technique I have tried. For those not in any particularly difficult situation, headspace has the ability to enhance daily existence. I begin my day with Headspace and I make an additional 10 minutes in the middle of my workday for headspace. I hope that you try this app and add that it does as much for you as it has for me.
THIS!
by Juliecis on 2019/02/24 15:44
A meditation for all our human ailments. I have spent much of my life trying to improve character flaws that hold me back from where I want to be. I have long recovered from active alcoholism, yet continued to struggle with impatience, bursts of anger, and other very much unwanted flaws, simply lost on how to heal. 30 days into meditation with HeadSpace, and I feel like a new person... light, and with hope. Already, things that used to frustrate me are falling off, just noticing them, often laughing quietly at how free I feel or at how good it felt to not be reactive in a given situation. I traded counseling for yoga years ago and yoga has provided a great relief, both physically and spiritually. THIS! The guided meditations through HeadSpace... is the next, and perhaps the final, solution to the feeling of hopelessness and a life of daunting flaws. I am joyous to find that with simple and pleasant discipline, physically at rest, no “work” to do, I am learning how to let the weight of the world (of thought) go, making room for what is becoming such a natural place of peace and joy.
Great app, but only one voice (sort of)
by nicknamenickleback on 2019/06/05 19:21
This app has a lot of different courses ranging from basic 1, 2, and 3 to a “reframing loneliness” course etc.. The range of content is great, but my issue is that apart from the basics 1, 2, and 3 courses, as well as some walking meditations (voiced by a woman) everything I’ve heard so far is all done by the same guy. He has a job to do, to make sure he is a serene and calm presence, talking into your ear. But how he says things comes across as not being genuine at times. It’s totally random, and thankfully doesn’t happen too often, but sometimes I’ll have to skip one of the sessions because I just can’t relate to the way he’s saying things. It’ll come across like he is trying too hard to sound calm in his ‘sexy meditation voice’. He seems like a genuine dude, I think that just the sheer amount of courses they made sort of forced him to create habits in the way he says things, I speculate that it’s dependent on how many he had to record at any given time, but who knows. Overall this app has helped me greatly, but what I mentioned above still bothers me.
The best for a grieving mom.
by Scrapmypic on 2020/03/21 20:29
I am grieving the loss of my adult son. The series on grieving has helped the devastation I am experiencing. The mans voice is so kind and full of compassion. I have tried every one of these types of apps. For me this is the best one. There is a lot of content here. Thank you so much to the app makers and the man who does the the grief meditations. So it has been a year an half since I wrote that and I can say this is hands down the best of this sort of app. Thank the universe I found it. I have used many of the meditations and the sleep content. They just keep making the app better and better. Andy I have learned is the male voice on most of the meditations. His compassion comes thru his voice. There is so much wisdom and love here. I’m gushing a bit but I am just so grateful for this app. I believe there is something for anyone and everyone. Is is well worth the price. They are so good at adding new content and covering all most any situation you might find your self in. Thank you Andy you help me get thru each day and sleep at night.
I love Headspace !!!
by Pamela JL on 2021/01/12 18:06
I have been using the Headspace app for about 5 years now. From the very beginning I felt I was embarking on a magical journey - a journey that would teach me the tools I needed to lift myself out of feelings of constant fear and inadequacy. Tools that would help me open my heart and mind to new possibilities and a more peaceful and compassionate approach to myself and the world. With the gentle and insightful guidance of Andy and the other practitioners, I feel safe and supported in my efforts to face and walk through difficult times. I am able to embrace joy and be present for myself, others and my life as it is today. It is always going to be a daily practice, as it should be, for that is the essence of being in the moment. I am also thrilled at how Headspace has evolved to include so many different guided topics for meditation as well as adding exercise to the program! What better way to integrate mind and body. Thank you all for what you have done to create Headspace and allow it to thrive! In gratitude, Pamela Llewellyn
The app I never thought I needed
by kaizen3105 on 2018/08/30 15:39
I&#39;ve tried meditating on and off for a few years but could never stick with the practice. After I started using Headspace, I was hooked after day one. While it does seem like a hefty price tag, what it teaches me during a meditation session as well as how to incorporate the practice into every day life is priceless. Headspace takes a different approach than most other meditation/mindfulness apps by not only teaching you the techniques, but also teaching you how to apply mindfulness with everything that you do. The app has taught me how to recognize when I get lost in my thoughts and react appropriately. I even think of being mindful ahead of time when I know there is an event in my life that would have consumed my thoughts in the past. I would definitely recommend Headspace to everyone, even if you don&#39;t think you need it because it can reveal things about yourself and your mind that can help to improve your life in ways you didn&#39;t realize.
Great app however...
by carolineehall91 on 2019/06/18 01:30
The gamification of this app is counterintuitive. For example I had a streak of over 100 days. I was so proud of that and it kept me motivated to continue. However my streak got wiped and I’m not even sure why. My boyfriend joked that this app that’s supposed to help me relax and reframe thoughts has me upset because I missed a day. If I look at my journey I see that each session date is sequential and doesn’t miss a date. This is the second time this has happened to me. I don’t know why my streak gets erased, and sometimes I feel like it adds a day randomly. I don’t think this would bother me so much if I wasn’t paying for this. And I know that this feature of the app is the least important aspect or function of the app. But for a product that’s supposed to help you practice mindfulness and acceptance this doesn’t help the users. Now that my streak has reset for the second time I felt the need to review. I hope you can fix this bug. Or at least let users know how the streak is measured, because you can meditate each calendar day but that doesn’t mean it counts for your streak.
Transformation
by To4tn8 on 2018/10/06 12:20
Big word here above but it applies. I was a classic overstressed executive, choosing too much work and decompressing with alcohol every night. It was unsustainable, until I got cancer. So I took some research and a plane flight to a clinic in China. While here at the clinic for six weeks, I listened to headspace every day, sometimes in the morning when I wake up and sometimes before sleep at night. Cancer treatments did their job but the headspace was a key contributor to my healing. One of the modules on Headspace was centered on healing, or rehab, and this was focused visualization that fueled your mind to assist the body in healing. I loved it. I moved on to the nodule on sleep, a three-part series, and that has had an impact on a key area of need. My MRI is tomorrow, it will tell us if the tumors are gone. Naturally that is the result I and my family want, but the experience has been wonderful regardless. Headspace was a big part of that over the last six weeks. Thank you for developing such a wonderful program, it’s become part of my lifestyle,
Worth every $$$$

Due to my severe anxiety I have searched for any resource to help me maintain my anxiety. When I found Headspace, I felt comfortable proceeding with the free trial, but I had planned to cancel it once the trial expired. I figured,”do you really want to pay for someone to tell you to sit down, close your eyes and follow your breath?” There are videos online that can help. However! When I started using the app I saw its potential for achieving my goal of maintaining my anxiety. The app has a ton of courses and guides to help you with different aspects of your mind. They have guides and courses on using meditation to help with productivity, personal relationships and sleep. I’ve done many of the guides and courses and I will tell you that they have been extremely helpful! They’ve actually exposed me to different ways of approaching meditation that aims to tackle various issues associated with anxiety. I did subscribe, but because it’s for my mental and it’s a great app I find it to be worth every dollar.
Good and bad in some ways

This is one of the most amazing apps i’ve ever tried for sleep, meditation and all of the things it offers. It quite an amazing app and has helped me calm down when I’m feeling angry, sad, or even when I’m TOO excited. This app has helped me with my anger issues that can happen often and that’s great but there are many problems at least for me in this app. One thing is that most of the things on this app are premium version, meaning that for those who don’t have much money, or for those who don’t want to spend their money there isn’t much variety to choose from. Another thing that happens is that at least for me it glitches and says it’s a free soundtrack or anything like that, But then it says “Sorry this isn’t working right now” And when I go to my recents it says its premium. I think this is a problem because it’s practically wasting our time trying to get the sound/music to play. That glitch may not be for everyone but it definitely bothers me. Headspace owner of your reading this, PLEASE fix these bugs!
Changed My Relationship With Anxiety
by rachelnotfromfriends on 2021/02/26 14:04
Have been using this app for years, since 2017. It has completely changed the way I manage my anxiety. Not only do they have a course for anxiety, but there are also SOS meditations that are super helpful when you’re in the middle of panic mode. Since I first got the app they have added so many new meditations, courses, and even instructors. It has grown with me as my meditation practice has grown and it is always a great day when I use the Headspace app. As far as the price it is definitely on the expensive side. I first started using the app when I was in college and was lucky to be in a financial situation where I could afford it. I know they are offering it for free to those who have been affected by the coronavirus. However, my one critique is that they should make a student version, so more people will have access to this life-changing app. Thank you Headspace for this amazing product! I will continue to be a customer for many more years, I am sure.
Life changing!!
by GambaFFesta1994 on 2021/01/24 04:01
Where do I start? This has changed my life in the best way I can ever imagine! I deal with a lot and i mean a lot (depression, anxiety, stress, etc &amp; the year 2020). I was in such an uncomfortable place with myself like i wasnt happy with myself, and i was my worst enemy and then I found Headspace on Netflix and I thought why not. I was never good with mediation I’ve tried it before and I thought it was a waste of my time, but wow was i wrong with this. It’s so much different and then i found the app and everyday i mediate! I’ve been working on my anger, my depression, focusing on me. Being kind to me and I’m telling you this has helped me so much. Each recording is about 10 - 15 minutes and Andy walks you through the mediation, helps you to focus on what you need to take care of yourself. If you’re having trouble with yourself or feeling like things dont go your way, please try this. Honestly I haven’t had a day where I’m feeling uncomfortable with myself or feeling depressed. It’s worth it
Hands-down the best guided meditation app
by erin mikula on 2017/12/16 18:05
I have attention-deficit disorder as well as generalized anxiety that affect my ability to “get out of my head”. Headspace has been a savior to me. It has helped me determine that there is a time and place for every feeling instead, where as before I would hate myself for having feelings that I did not want, which in turn made it very difficult to understand and accept how I was truly feeling. It has been a built-up habit over my 22 years of life, but this app has helped me to live a less-cluttered life. With that being said, along with this app, fitness has been a very important role in my life, especially running and yoga. When I stretch, I become more mindful. I am a subscriber, and I love that you have running and cycling as exercising meditations, but could you consider adding in a guided meditation for stretching as well? Thank you for all that you have done to change mine as well as millions of other peoples lives. You completely deserve your rating. 😊
Great features; trouble with record-keeping
by Carlyey on 2020/12/17 21:03
The meditations are great, and I’ve been finding the focus music feature really great for listening while working; it’s at least as good as the ambient music I typically listen to. My only complaint at the moment is that listening to the focus music counts toward minutes meditated, and then to Apple Health mindfulness minutes if you have that option on on. So if I listen to 3 hours of focus music while working, plus one morning meditation, it seems like I’ve meditated for 185 minutes, when I’ve really only done 3. And it seems to count the music toward my streak, too, which doesn’t really help me keep track of my progress in building a habit of mindfulness. Listening to focus-helping music while working—something I’ve always done—is totally different than actually meditating. It’s not a dealbreaker, of course—I can manually keep track—but it would be nice if the app let you distinguish between what’s real time spent with mindful practice, and what’s just listening to music while working.
Every meditation is the same
by Em122rm on 2018/04/14 03:47
I love the user interface on this app. I like the animations and the narrator. The app makes you want to meditate everyday and has definitely helped me keep a consistent practice. That in itself is very valuable. Unfortunately all of the meditations are pretty much exactly the same just repackaged under different themes. Essentially, if you do the basics (which you can get a taste of for free), that’s what all the other meditations are like. There’s no variety. They managed to package the same meditation under different themes by slapping on a different introductory quote. After that quote, you just repeat the same meditation. For example, you want a meditation that focuses on love? Well they just provide a little definition on what unconditional love is and then you do the exact same meditation you did in the basics package. I certainly don’t mind doing the same meditation for a month or so. But definitely not justifiable for an entire year. I would advice anyone against paying a whole year subscription for the app unless they want to do the same exact meditation daily.
