Meditation stops when phone rings
by Idotmadni on 2021/01/22 15:48
When my phone rings while I’m meditating, the app doesn’t automatically continue. You have to open your eyes and press play again. Definitely needs to be fixed.
Super vital for well being
by Fickle sister on 2021/01/22 15:20
I love everything about this site. I can’t sleep without it. I am relaxing completely and learning to thrive despite being totally OCD. Thanks Andy and Eve!
Loyal user
by Jcjfdjxjckfkxkvkc on 2021/01/22 15:07
After trying to meditate on my own for many years, Headspace helped me cultivate a daily practice. I’ve now used it almost every day for several years. The app has a wide selection of meditations and durations. It’s is reliable and easy to use. And I’m fortunate that my company pays for the subscription.
Rich with Light and Support
by lemonnoone on 2021/01/22 14:47
I have been a Headspace user for several years now. I first found it back in 2016 after I graduated from college, but I could only periodically afford to keep the app as expenses have always been a challenge in my life. However, I always came back. Headspace has provided me with the resources and support I needed from a community. The approach to everyday practice is made so simple that I would practice on my own throughout the day. Practicing meditation has helped me in countless ways, of the most significant is with depression (MDD). Alongside my therapy sessions, I would practice meditation, I cannot put into words how this has transformed my relationship with my thoughts and people around me. Yesterday, everyday was a hard and difficult day. Today, everyday is beautiful and the challenges are welcome. I love you headspace, thank you again for your support and the light you pour into the world.
Really Relaxing

Andy has a great voice and talks just slow enough to not get caught up in his speech
Sanity in the palm of your hand.
by Coqudocu on 2021/01/22 14:10
I’ve made a decision this year that if I’m feeling a need for a “distraction” or “quick phone check” I turn it into a 2 min meditation or look at some of the video content on this app rather than mindlessly looking through socials. Thank you Headspace team for the fresh content, the tried & true meditations & the beautiful sleep sounds. I utilize all three of these very often. 🌈
Best tool and resource
by googreview on 2021/01/22 14:00
Love headspace!!! It grounds and calms you in a matter of seconds by allowing yourself to connect to the moment. Excellent
Love it
by eeeyy on 2021/01/22 13:14
Only app I’ll happily pay for. Way worth it. Provides an easy, simple way to integrate meditation into a daily routine. Great for beginners or people who have never tried meditation before!
Great Selections
by Moonkoi24 on 2021/01/22 13:14
I’m a university student and my courses are intensive and fast. Needed an App to feel calm and relaxed to go to bed. They have so much variety in voice actors, relaxing music that can make you feel focused and calm at the same time. They have amazing quality nature sounds. Theres stories or narrative meditative walkthroughs. Theres still much to explore. So far its help for all my needs for focus and to calm my anxieties and to relax to sleep. If you are a student they have a sweet discount for the whole year. Its worth it.
The practice does matter
by Latin Teacher LXI on 2021/01/22 13:08
A colleague urged me to try mindfulness through Headspace because it had worked so well for him and I was sharing my own frustrations with my scattered mind with him. That was almost two years ago. I have missed days more than once, but I then do it the next day and the day after that and so on to reset my routine. Now I can feel myself able to stay calmer and to recognize the signs when my mind is running off. I can usually call it back by focusing on my breathing. So it works for me and I feel better. What more could I ask for?
Self Worth
by kodihershey904? on 2021/01/22 10:15
It was not until I was made to sit down that I discovered Headspace. It was and still is hard at times to meditate. But headspace has given me a template into which path to follow.
this is an amazing app even without premium
by chiebshsbshsb on 2021/01/22 06:37
this app is one the best meditation apps i’ve ever used! it’s great for any ages and it’s great for calming down and doing easy and calming mental exercises. if you need to calm down please use this app because i love it so much! i use it to fall asleep ever night. there’s no adds or any screens that pop up asking if you want to get the premium. it’s so nice not having any of those. also i recommend getting a essential oil diffuser for whenever you do anything on headspace. once again it’s a great app so please get it if your looking for a meditation app
This is awesome
by kck0527 on 2021/01/22 04:16
Your app is the best app the wind down cool down and exercise with out this I would be so stressed and tired thank you headspace
Good but locked
by Dalia peace on 2021/01/22 01:57
I really like this app a lot. But everything is locked on it and I think meditation should be free to everyone, it would be great to have a variety of amazing meditations for free.
Life Changing
by allietfussell on 2021/01/22 00:38
This app is worth every single penny. Spending 10 minutes/day investing in myself and my mental health throughout this pandemic has been made exponentially easier thanks to the Headspace team. I’ve been on this app since Nov 2019 and have been very impressed with how quickly they were able to create so much content so fast after the pandemic started. The content the Headspace team created over the last year has been immensely helpful. The addition of the workouts and now playlists have all been amazingly helpful in so many ways. Still waiting for that ‘Save’ feature for meditations I want to save for later though 😉
Wonderful Meditation Guidance
by LerainMugz on 2021/01/21 20:15
I absolutely love Headspace. It has helped me so much with finding peace of mind. I am on my second year with using Headspace. I naturally find myself using the techniques to fall asleep and quiet my anxiety. I highly recommend Headspace and Meditation.
MY FAVORITE APP EVER!!!!
by Beepeproeoepwñlws on 2021/01/21 18:45
This is the best app if you are looking for a calmer mind. If you can afford it, I would HIGHLY recommend getting the premium version. Headspace literally saved my life.
Best App
by Dh92 on 2021/01/21 18:18
Headspace is my favorite app of all time. I use it every morning to have a focused, well rested mind.
Grounded
by daffodils are coming soon on 2021/01/21 16:32
Headspace not only gives me daily informational videos or relaxing bedtime images but is helping with the loss of my son to cancer. When grief hits hard, I remember “everything is changing,” and I can make it through.
Love it!
by Wendy57 on 2021/01/21 15:52
On my 3rd year of Headspace! So helpful with my SAD! I especially lie the nature stories on Thursdays with the Morning Wake up.
Awesome medication resource!!!!
by MamaCass86 on 2021/01/21 15:49
The app user experience is top notch- well organized, really aesthetically pleasing graphics and fun animations. LOVE all the guides, different focuses and the ability to sort through and choose a series or one off. Bedtime sleep casts are AMAZING! My daughter and I listen to one every night as she falls asleep. This has made incorporating meditation into my life so painless and joyful and it’s genuinely changing me for the better! Thank you Headspace!!! 💕
New to this
by Dbear1987 on 2021/01/21 15:15
New to learning about meditation . And I love all the lessons and info found in this app. There is also children lessons which is great too ! Love it from just scheming and listening to a few lessons and seeing a few relaxing clips. Everything is doable for even a busy mommy like me. Definitely recommend especially during this pandemic.
Does not have loving kindness or metta meditation
by shh2020 on 2021/01/21 13:54
It sends reminders to meditate, tracks minutes meditated and offers techniques embedded in each meditation. Which was key for me. I needed strategies that would retrain my brain. AND additionally I would like for it to track meditation data on a granular level. For example: Days of the week I meditated, techniques I “mastered”, etc
My Time
by Babsbda on 2021/01/21 13:46
I have learned I need to meditate every day to feel centered. I like the different places available for various situations. I have one question... where is The Wakeup? That alone encouraged me to begin my morning meditation. Each presentation was interesting, the people knowledgeable and friendly, and the subject matter always informative. Even the little opening jingle was pleasant and I looked forward to it every day. Thank you for Headspace.
Great But...
by carefreed on 2021/01/21 13:12
Loved using Headspace for meditation as well as a sleep aid for months. I have noticed marked improvement in my stress and anxiety levels partially due to the resources on this app. That said, it’s clear that Andy and Headspace are choosing to sell themselves out to companies that have nothing to do with meditation. Music and workouts in a meditation app? What? Stay true to yourself. Eh, I guess it’s just business.
Spam emails
by rightaway01 on 2021/01/21 12:33
I haven't used the app that much so I cant say much for it, but ever since I signed up on here, I have been getting slammed with phishing emails like “You’ve won! Claim Your Prize Immediately!!” Or “Your account has been compromised”. I haven't signed up for anything else recently with that email so I have a good feeling It was because of this. Just be careful out there.
Please
by bmeg24 on 2021/01/21 12:14
Hi sorry to bother you but I am a child and I think that you should make all of your Sessions free instead of 60$. Just my opinion on it don’t think that I am forcing you to do it 🙂. Have a nice day! Thanks Bailey Charbonneau
Love it!!!

LOVE this app!
by mmcveigg on 2021/01/21 04:18
For the first time in years, I am meditating almost daily. I appreciate the choices so much and the sleep section is particularly good for me! I have tried a few meditation apps and none have worked for me as well as this one!
Thank you, all at Headspace!
by New Practioner on 2021/01/21 02:28
Am so grateful for this app!! I am an entry level practitioner, and I appreciate the guided meditations, as well as, the group meditations. I love the sound meditations, particularly the ocean pier recordings, which help me to relax before sleeping. One day, maybe I will be fit enough to try the exercises😜. Headspace has been a much-appreciated respite from the stress of frontline covid and from 24/7 political stress. Truly. Thank you for all that you do to make this practice understandable and available!🙂❤️
My experience
by Futzen on 2021/01/20 23:22
Over the years, Headspace—and Andy’s soothing voice—have helped me maintain perspective and have helped me on the journey of trying to live in the present. I recommend it to anyone!!
Meditation made simple
by farbrush on 2021/01/20 23:00
Fun animations, themes for whatever you’re feeling, and a teacher that’s like able and soothing
You can’t afford not to meditate!
by Karl.H. on 2021/01/20 22:44
I am training myself to use healthier coping techniques when handling my mental health symptoms. For example, I have utilized the SOS meditation feature from Headspace and couldn’t believe the results. I thought it laughable. How could a 3 min meditation remove that tightness in my chest and feeling of dread?!? And I’m not even “good” at meditating, doesn’t matter. I tried. I tried and it worked. And if the feeling came back. I just did the meditation again. I’d rather do 3 x 3min meditations a day over an unhealthy response. Headspace is a blessing and an absolute must for my health and wellness. It would be terribly sad to under estimate the power of meditation— I learned this first hand. I wish I would have been doing this years ago. Want to change your life? Here’s how.
Life Changing
by Juijubeans on 2021/01/20 22:33
I first tried this app for free a couple of years ago but then soon deleted it. I didn’t really try. It wasn’t until I saw Headspace Guide to Meditation on Netflix that I was able to fully grasp the concept. I’ve learned so much and continue to dig deeper on how meditation helps me mentally, emotionally and physically. Being stuck at home during Covid can bring a lot of anxiety and depression. This app has helped extremely, it has done wonders and will continue to help me live to the fullest. I ask please, if you are suffering from any of these or stress or even pain, to please please do yourself a favor and try it. Please also watch the show on Netflix. I will forever be thankful for Headspace. It’s a life changer. ❤️
Very helpful
by stop nintendo on 2021/01/20 21:08
I’m a cancer survivor and deal with a lot of anxiety and depression. Combined with medication and meditation, I’ve been better able to handle it.

Nothing Short of Life Changing.
by Bunny_Shaidy on 2021/01/20 16:40
From socially anxious and feeling that a part of myself was lost to overcoming my self deprecating mindset and finally loving myself, headspace has been my guide through it all. No therapist, self medication/prescriptions, has been able to help me the way that mindfulness meditation has. I cried when my free trial was finished and I continue to buy headspace annually since 2017. I am eternally grateful for this application, it has sincerely been a beacon of hope for me from the beginning. I’ve seen it grow so much in popularity and for good reason, it is the easiest way to learn how to meditate. I couldn’t have done it without you, Andy. I hold a very special place in my heart for you. Self development, spirituality and love is my main focus in this life thanks to this newfound way of dealing with my neurosis that I have been blessed to have given the opportunity to grow from. 🥺♥️🧠🫀🫁 🧘🏽‍♀️🏵
This app has changed my life for the better this year
by Micah Sherman on 2021/01/20 16:25
I am able to go through life with more serenity and wisdom because I’m able to take a few minutes everyday to calm myself and focus. Thank you.
Where has this app been all my life?
by JaneWolfe on 2021/01/20 16:23
I love meditation. Love. It. It’s my new favorite thing to do. The guides give just the right amount of prompts to lead and guide you through the process. And constantly remind you that it’s ok to get distracted as you go along. You don’t become a master overnight. I’ve had this app on my phone for several months and finally just decided that my life needed a change. I felt stressed more often than not and overwhelmed by all the changes being forced on us in our lives. And I decided I didn’t want to live in that negative space anymore. After only a few weeks of using the Headspace app, I can feel a change. I feel lighter, happier, and overall find it easier to let go of the negative emotions I’m experiencing, rather than holding onto them, fixating on them and letting them run my life. Meditation is leading me down a path toward peace, patience and a better understanding of myself and by extension, the world around me. I cannot emphasize enough how much I love this app and deeply appreciate the people who created it. Thank you. This is exactly what I needed in my life.

The most mind changing think I have done for my life thank you Jack Lyons
What a blessing!
by skysdaughter on 2021/01/20 15:32
Working in mental health you would think that I would be better at caring for myself. I gave lip service to self care in reality. Headspace has given me a structure that I use several times a day. And with all that is going on in the world, the timing was perfect.
Amazing
by Rdog236373 on 2021/01/20 15:10
Headspace is incredibe
Wonderful
by Toy_belle on 2021/01/20 15:06
This app has helped me tremendously. After I finished the anxiety course... my mind, body and spirit has become so much more clear. I want to thank Andy for that. I still use the app everyday. It’s WONDERFUL!
Must have for everyone

Great life hack
by Red Tanager on 2021/01/20 14:28
This app makes daily meditation possible for me. When I’m exhausted and I feel like I can’t sit still for 20 minutes on my own, this app has a way of “tricking” me into doing that very same thing. Sometimes, finding the smooth path in my life involves tricking my clever and devious brain. This app is a great life hack
HEADSPACE. To infinity and beyond 🙏🏻

The best mediation app I have found that keeps me engaged and coming back
by learning to manage the anxiety on 2021/01/20 13:07
This mediation app is great for people who are new to the practice. Using this app daily has changed my life for the better.
The voices of the teachers are soothing.
by SaiatS on 2021/01/20 12:53
This app helps me stay the course of meditation that I chose. It helps with the soothing voices and pleasant visuals of the app interface.
This app is beyond worth it.
by B.G.1617 on 2021/01/20 12:36
I’ve had headspace for two years now and I couldn’t imagine life without it. It has taught me so much and helped me find so much clarity. I love the everyday wake up, the courses, and the Move section they added is a wonderful addition. Will be renewing again for next year!
Diverse voices
by Thisnameisnottakennow on 2021/01/20 12:24
Several sleep casts only feature BIPOC voices when they’re tied to stereotypical roles. For example, Carlos (spanish accent) only featured in El Mercado. Brian (Asian accent) only featured in Temple Rain. Kim (African American woman) only featured in Salon Nights. Including diverse voice actors across all the sleep casts could undermine the typical tropes western cultures have historically imposed on “other” identities. There’s an opportunity to challenge the historically prejudiced stereotypes that maintain that certain identities can only exist if fitting into well-worn mischaracterizations. Please reconsider how to cast voice actors.
The best app for getting mindfulness!
by valerie.tale on 2021/01/20 11:11
Headspace is a great app that has everything you may need to get some mindfulness in your life. There’s everything to learn meditating, sleep well, start your day right and even more. Also I like the design very much, it’s easy to use and pleasant to look at. I want to thank Andy and all the members of the Headspace team for this amazing work they have made!
Mostly great
by cpevans on 2021/01/20 09:30
But why on earth do Sleepcasts, Sleepscapes, Sleep Radio, etc. count towards Stats? The only thing that should count towards “Total Time Meditated” is time meditated! Not the hour of soundscape after I fall asleep. Edit: Can someone explain to me why sleepcasts don’t always include narration? I’ve been listening to “Cabin Porch” for 25 minutes and haven’t heard a peep from Darren. Tgis happens with several other sleepcasts as well. If no one is talking, shouldn’t it just be a soundscape? And, finally, why isn’t there an option to choose Airplay from the sleepcast screen? I have to work around by first selecting a soundscape, choose my speaker in Airplay, then back out to the sleepcast I want, and then it works but this is super annoying. And, for the love of all that is holy, give us the option to choose whether or not we want soundscapes to count towards time meditated.
Greatly improved my life.
by An Angry Minion on 2021/01/20 05:55
The wide range of guided meditations, playlists, and explanations are what set Headspace apart. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
This app is absolutely essential
by Catgrl548🐾😺🐈 on 2021/01/20 05:36
If you see this review please read. Headspace helped me through a horrible period in my life of depression and some suicidal thought. the anxiety courses as well help since i suffer from bad anxiety too. please download this app if you haven’t and yes it costs money but i got it for free through my job. even if you don’t get it for free, trust me it will be the best money you’ve ever spent. thank you for your time:)
Amazing!!
by Sidney W. R. on 2021/01/20 04:06
I’m still learning all the tricks of meditation, but I am enjoying it so much. I genuinely feel so different after getting up from my meditation. I’m so much more at ease and level headed. Thank you, Headspace!! 🧡
I wouldn’t want to live without Headspace.
by Wildwood-By-The-Sea on 2021/01/20 03:32
Seriously, this is working for me. My headspace is more spacious and less worried and cluttered with inane thoughts. Started with fundamentals, then Anxiety and now Creativity. Works well for me and I have tried other meditation or mindfulness products.
Extremely effective
by HJ Forfha on 2021/01/20 03:29
I only just started meditating mostly as a means to calm my easily stressed mind from college and I can say that every time I use it I feel a great sense of calm. It has only been a week and I am beginning to have a whole now look on life and how to approach it. This app is definitely worth the money.
It’s good but too expensive
by Jordan Korolden on 2021/01/20 03:03
So I have been using headspace. I have had to do the same session over and over again. I wish that it would be free so I can try all of the sessions without having to pay a ridiculous amount of money. I think that having to pay for an app that helps you to be calm and close to falling asleep. I have issues falling asleep so I got this app but it wasn’t worth it because I have to pay to use most of it. I am only 14 and I can’t pay for it. I wish that is were to be free. Instead of having to pay a ridiculous amount of money for an app like this. So don’t get this app if you don’t wanna pay for it try and use other things that are free to use or try.
Well done
by ssrrrbbb on 2021/01/20 02:33
Enjoy and benefit from numerous features including the morning wake up, daily meditation and focus music for work. I was signed up and started over a year pre Covid - the site continues to evolve and is truly a part of my daily routine.
Important, helpful and game-changing.
by Rolling29 on 2021/01/20 02:25
Since discovering Headspace about 3 years ago, I’ve done it daily with only 3 missed days. That’s how important it is to me and my mental balance. I recommend strongly!
Best App
by Kay Smalls on 2021/01/20 02:17
I can’t say enough good things about this app! I’ve used it a couple of years now and it’s saved my life. Great gift idea for friends too.
Life changing
by Kathy from Charleston on 2021/01/20 01:48
Headspace has been a life changing app for me. I depend on the sounds and the stories to send me off to sleep . My sleep has I improved greatly from the breathing exercises. I did try a few of the other apps that are available and most definitely think Headspace is the one that seems almost custom made for me and my lifestyle
10/10
by Jordyn Purcell on 2021/01/20 01:41
Headspace is a really good app. It’s great if you have anxiety or if you overthink a lot. And it helps me calm down when I’m anxious or when I need to go to bed.
Good!!

A lot of these courses are like a therapy session. I have been using this app for 2 years and it’s become such a positive part of my life!
Starting Headspace
by TheVivian on 2021/01/19 22:16
I downloaded this app to help me feel more focused in school and at home. Even after one session, I feel more relaxed and aware of my surroundings. I recommend this app to anyone who experiences a lot of stress, or anyone who wants to improve their lifestyle.
Incredible tool for mindfulness
by darkbloomfoto on 2021/01/19 21:14
I’m still fairly young, 24 years old, but in my life so far I’ve acquired a lot of emotional stress. Clinical anxiety and depression, mostly stemming from trauma. But also just becoming aware of aging and time. Cosmologically feeling small and insignificant, that life is pointless. Existential anxiety has seemed to take hold of my mind every day, exacerbating the anxiety and depression I already suffer from. This app is something I’m truly grateful for. (Along with the series they recently added on Netflix!) More than aware there’s no cure or abolition of negative thoughts and feelings in their entirety. Realizing it’s all part of the human condition and important to learn how to be aware and navigate stress. Headspace is easy to use and perfectly introduces meditation to people like me who never thought they needed it. Especially when it comes to attention/focus, the guided meditation is exceptional. The interface is clean and smoothly designed. I can’t recommend this enough!

So again Buddhist principles. I pay for premium yet I’m forcibly subjected to advertising on a regular basis. How is that a way to treat customers? Insight timer or Calm is the way to go!
Amazing

This is the best app you will ever need !!!! Amazing!!!!!!
The best of the meditation apps.
by ELeatherwood on 2021/01/19 17:14
If you want an all-purpose practical experience this is the beat. Waking Up by Sam Harris is also excellent, but skews toward the philosophically minded. Calm could be great, but is ruined entirely by the saccharine, insincere voice of Tamara Leavitt.
The Space Feels Amazing in Head!
by Grantski! on 2021/01/19 16:47
I started using Headspace regularly 3 months ago. I didn’t know how cluttered my mind was until I tried to sit in silence for 10 minutes.... That one experience changed my perception of myself and the category of meditation. I’ve got a long ways to go, but headspace scales with my learning. It really is the holistic package👌🏻 u the techniques behind the practice!

Headspace- what to expect
by mj criner on 2021/01/19 16:15
Amazing app. Whether you’re looking for an entry into meditation or expanding your practice, this is a great starting place... specifically for meditation/mindfulness only, that is. In that way, it can be life changing. The UX is okay; you kind of have to dig around in a not-so-intuitive way to get into other features, but some essentials are laid out plainly upon opening the app. It’s still 70USD/yr. So, a tune up in that department wouldn’t hurt. The voices are very pleasant, but I wonder if using only British accents deters a more diverse audience (i.e., people who are already a tough sell [i.e., british accents = liberal conspiracy ~ U.S.A.] but would benefit tremendously from meditation, and people who might consider using British accents in this context to be appropriation/co-opting target cultures of some kind). Just some thoughts for a potential reality.

Headspace is a true focus on the practice of mindfulness. Instructional and guided for long term results. Not a series of licensed opportunities for celebrities or influencers like Calm.

Grateful for Headspace
by MH from Keizer on 2021/01/19 14:28
I’m so grateful for Headspace. My husband died in February 2020. Shortly after his death everything was shut down due to Covid-19. I was grieving and the loneliness was unbearable. I did the counseling course. It helped me so much, Andy’s voice was like listening to a friend. I’m still lonely and grieving but I’m looking forward to the future. Thank you Headspace.

Helps me get through the day
by nicekid21 on 2021/01/19 13:34
This app has really opened my eyes to a new way of living life. This is actually the only app that has had a positive impact on my life. There are ways to cope with anxiety and ruminating thoughts. When I find myself in difficult situations mentally, I am always reminded to pay attention to my breath and let my thoughts pass through me because sometimes our thoughts don’t need to be taken so seriously. Thank you for helping my mindfulness journey, Headspace.

Daily meditation with Headspace has improved my ability to manage hardships and stress (and there are many), has brought focus to my life, has strengthened my relationships with those I love and care about. Often, it’s only 5 minutes a day, but it’s the best 5 minutes I give to myself. I love that headspace keeps adding partnerships and resources, especially for sleep. Kevin Hart’s Energy Shots are so fun and unexpected for a meditation app! Thank you, Headspace, for changing my life.

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.
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.

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.
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 :)
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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. 😊
Replacing my social media
by jennibean123 on 2019/08/10 14:57
I’ve had an on-again/off-again relationship with headspace for a few years. I love the app, but I’ve had trouble committing and usually fall away after a week or so. However, after having a stressful week, I deleted social media. I was still wanting something to help manage my thoughts, so I returned to Headspace. Since my last use (about a year ago), they’ve added many courses and sessions. And it’s pretty reasonably priced, too! I do one when I wake, one during a short break at work, one when I get home, and one before sleep. I feel better than ever, even though the stresses are still there. I’m especially fond of group meditation, it’s nice to feel a part of something. I love all the options and the reminders. Plus the goal of completing a course is enough to keep me coming back and get in the habit. I think it’s one I’ll keep this time. My brain needs it. I love this app and everyone involved in developing and creating it!! Thanks headapace!!
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.
A REALLY good app - thank you for creating it!
by MJF in HI on 2018/04/15 02:19
This app has changed my life. After going through some really weird and confusing mid-life events starting about 7 months ago I developed insomnia and anxiety. Never having experienced either before I was very ill equipped to cope with what to me were entirely new feelings and worries. I stumbled on Headspace, and have meditated every day for the last six months. Although it takes some time, if you stick with it, these methods really work. I’m sleeping again, I’m less worried, and I think I understand my own mind and perhaps the minds of others a little bit better. I’ve subsequently read a fair bit about meditation, and my impression is that the methods in Headspace are very much the real deal. They are also presented in a completely secular manner, which I appreciate. The ‘pro’ packs get a little mystical, but, at least for me, in a thought provoking and fun sort of way. I honestly believe this app has contributed to better world.
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.
Great guided meditations but frustrated with the gamification
by Jpweller on 2019/04/01 03:56
I can thank Headspace for helping me make meditating a daily habit. Their Stress and Anxiety course helped me a lot through a recent breakup. I’ve now moved onto other courses, which I find equally as helpful. However, I believe their gamification of meditation goes against the mindful ethos. For this reason, I am giving it four stars. I shouldn’t be made feel guilty for not using Headspace for my daily meditation. If they are going to gamify meditation, they should allow you to add time you’ve meditated off the app. This would actually be a reason to keep the app once I no longer want to use guided meditations as frequently. But I will probably cancel my subscription after a year. I do highly recommend to anyone getting into meditation to subscribe for at least a year. Or use any other meditation app. It’s changed my relationship to my emotions for the better, made me more present in social interactions, and made me more empathetic and compassionate. I encourage everyone to give it a try.
Some pretty bad customer service
by GB278 on 2018/02/06 03:21
The idea and simplicity of headspace is good. I had their annual subscription. Had. However, their customer service to two recent inquiries were so bad, I had to put myself in a state of being mindful just to keep the cool. Don’t get angry. The not-so-pleasant experience from customer service turns to this: “C’mon, simply note it and back to breathing.” And just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water, the thought of their poor customer service once again enters my mind. “Note it. Brush it aside. Focus on the breath.” Cool. All done. So, because of remaining cool, here’s the good to this: I was able to later take the time, research several other meditation or mindfulness apps, and find three very good ones. Of those, I’ve purchased one that I absolutely love. It was like “where were you all my life?” And if the app could speak, it was as if it said, “I was always here. You just had to sift through the weeds to experience what really matters.”
Your method is very good
by Gruncherzzzz on 2017/10/28 08:33
I do like your method very much my only problem is that sometime when I miss a day it jump the next day and I can’t practice or go back and also in the very beginning I made it only for three minutes which is very short and when I wanted to make it longer instead of three minutes to start from the beginning and to have like at least 10 minutes if not more I wasn’t able to do that I would like very much to start doing the basic from the very beginning for 15 minutes every day if it what if it’s possible to do the same couple of times every day and definitely don’t let me skip anything any day thank you very much I’m sure that after doing the basic and a little More probably I will join your program one One more important question is if that I have l am not sure if I paid for something or not in your program I appreciate if you could let me know what’s my situation
Incredible tool for mindfulness
by darkbloomfoto on 2021/01/19 21:14
I’m still fairly young, 24 years old, but in my life so far I’ve acquired a lot of emotional stress. Clinical anxiety and depression, mostly stemming from trauma. But also just becoming aware of aging and time. Cosmologically feeling small and insignificant, that life is pointless. Existential anxiety has seemed to take hold of my mind every day, exacerbating the anxiety and depression I already suffer from. This app is something I’m truly grateful for. (Along with the series they recently added on Netflix!) More than aware there’s no cure or abolition of negative thoughts and feelings in their entirety. Realizing it’s all part of the human condition and important to learn how to be aware and navigate stress. Headspace is easy to use and perfectly introduces meditation to people like me who never thought they needed it. Especially when it comes to attention/focus, the guided meditation is exceptional. The interface is clean and smoothly designed. I can’t recommend this enough!
Good, but not as great a selection as it might seem
by Pierrot606 on 2017/11/14 22:21
While I enjoy the user friendliness of the app, appreciate the videos as well as the range of meditation themes, I’ve begun to regret having subscribed for a whole year in advance. The more packages and singles I look into, the more it seems that a lot of the sessions ultimately follow the same structure, use one (or more) of the same hand full of techniques, just the “packaging” changes (mediation for sleep, productivity, healing etc.). The singles seem to be more varied, but they, too, largely follow the same layout, just with a different theme wrapped around it. If only there were at least more variety to the visualization technique; I love meditating using visualization, but the one I’ve come across in all but one case (liquid sun light) does not do it for me. Granted, I haven’t listened to all sessions offered, and I’ll gladly take back what I’ve said if there’s more variety to the session structure or the techniques and I’ve just haven’t seen it yet. It would be disappointing, though, if the current pattern I’m seeing holds up for the rest of the packages.
Loved at first
by nizismom on 2020/04/28 00:59
I loved it the first day I tried it in February 2020 and purchased a year long subscription. I use it several times a day and my four year old and I fall asleep to the sleep casts every night. I cope with severe anxiety on a daily basis and during the pandemic this has been extremely challenging. Three nights ago I really needed my favorite windown and sleepcast and they are all locked and it’s asking me to start a free trial if I want to use them. I have followed all the advice on the help section to try to restore my purchase but even under my subscriptions it shows I am a subscriber and it doesn’t expire until feb 2021. I’ve emailed headspace and have heard nothing back and also tried the chat and it just feeds me the same unhelpful help and then prompts me to email them again. If I get this resolved I’ll update and add more stars but I’m extremely disappointed right now and not happy with the lack of customer service. Maybe I will switch to Calm

Meditation stops when phone rings
by Idotmadni on 2021/01/22 15:48
When my phone rings while I’m meditating, the app doesn’t automatically continue. You have to open your eyes and press play again. Definitely needs to be fixed.
Super vital for well being
by Fickle sister on 2021/01/22 15:20
I love everything about this site. I can’t sleep without it. I am relaxing completely and learning to thrive despite being totally OCD. Thanks Andy and Eve!
Loyal user
by Jcjfdjxjckfkxkvkc on 2021/01/22 15:07
After trying to meditate on my own for many years, Headspace helped me cultivate a daily practice. I’ve now used it almost every day for several years. The app has a wide selection of meditations and durations. It’s is reliable and easy to use. And I’m fortunate that my company pays for the subscription.
Rich with Light and Support
by lemonnoone on 2021/01/22 14:47
I have been a Headspace user for several years now. I first found it back in 2016 after I graduated from college, but I could only periodically afford to keep the app as expenses have always been a challenge in my life. However, I always came back. Headspace has provided me with the resources and support I needed from a community. The approach to everyday practice is made so simple that I would practice on my own throughout the day. Practicing meditation has helped me in countless ways, of the most significant is with depression (MDD). Alongside my therapy sessions, I would practice meditation, I cannot put into words how this has transformed my relationship with my thoughts and people around me. Yesterday, everyday was a hard and difficult day. Today, everyday is beautiful and the challenges are welcome. I love you headspace, thank you again for your support and the light you pour into the world.
Really Relaxing

Andy has a great voice and talks just slow enough to not get caught up in his speech
Sanity in the palm of your hand.
by Coqudocu on 2021/01/22 14:10
I’ve made a decision this year that if I’m feeling a need for a “distraction” or “quick phone check” I turn it into a 2 min meditation or look at some of the video content on this app rather than mindlessly looking through socials. Thank you Headspace team for the fresh content, the tried &amp; true meditations &amp; the beautiful sleep sounds. I utilize all three of these very often. 🌈
Best tool and resource
by googreview on 2021/01/22 14:00
Love headspace!!! It grounds and calms you in a matter of seconds by allowing yourself to connect to the moment. Excellent
Love it
by eeeyy on 2021/01/22 13:14
Only app I’ll happily pay for. Way worth it. Provides an easy, simple way to integrate meditation into a daily routine. Great for beginners or people who have never tried meditation before!
Great Selections
by Moonkoi24 on 2021/01/22 13:14
I’m a university student and my courses are intensive and fast. Needed an App to feel calm and relaxed to go to bed. They have so much variety in voice actors, relaxing music that can make you feel focused and calm at the same time. They have amazing quality nature sounds. Theres stories or narrative meditative walkthroughs. Theres still much to explore. So far its help for all my needs for focus and to calm my anxieties and to relax to sleep. If you are a student they have a sweet discount for the whole year. Its worth it.
The practice does matter
by Latin Teacher LXI on 2021/01/22 13:08
A colleague urged me to try mindfulness through Headspace because it had worked so well for him and I was sharing my own frustrations with my scattered mind with him. That was almost two years ago. I have missed days more than once, but I then do it the next day and the day after that and so on to reset my routine. Now I can feel myself able to stay calmer and to recognize the signs when my mind is running off. I can usually call it back by focusing on my breathing. So it works for me and I feel better. What more could I ask for?
Self Worth
by kodihershey904? on 2021/01/22 10:15
It was not until I was made to sit down that I discovered Headspace. It was and still is hard at times to meditate. But headspace has given me a template into which path to follow.
this is an amazing app even without premium
by chiebshsbshsb on 2021/01/22 06:37
this app is one the best meditation apps i’ve ever used! it’s great for any ages and it’s great for calming down and doing easy and calming mental exercises. if you need to calm down please use this app because i love it so much! i use it to fall asleep ever night. there’s no adds or any screens that pop up asking if you want to get the premium. it’s so nice not having any of those. also i recommend getting a essential oil diffuser for whenever you do anything on headspace. once again it’s a great app so please get it if your looking for a meditation app
This is awesome
by kck0527 on 2021/01/22 04:16
Your app is the best app the wind down cool down and exercise with out this I would be so stressed and tired thank you headspace
Good but locked
by Dalia peace on 2021/01/22 01:57
I really like this app a lot. But everything is locked on it and I think meditation should be free to everyone, it would be great to have a variety of amazing meditations for free.
Life Changing
by allietfussell on 2021/01/22 00:38
This app is worth every single penny. Spending 10 minutes/day investing in myself and my mental health throughout this pandemic has been made exponentially easier thanks to the Headspace team. I’ve been on this app since Nov 2019 and have been very impressed with how quickly they were able to create so much content so fast after the pandemic started. The content the Headspace team created over the last year has been immensely helpful. The addition of the workouts and now playlists have all been amazingly helpful in so many ways. Still waiting for that ‘Save’ feature for meditations I want to save for later though 😉
Wonderful Meditation Guidance
by LerainMugz on 2021/01/21 20:15
I absolutely love Headspace. It has helped me so much with finding peace of mind. I am on my second year with using Headspace. I naturally find myself using the techniques to fall asleep and quiet my anxiety. I highly recommend Headspace and Meditation.
MY FAVORITE APP EVER!!!!
by Beepeproeoepwñlws on 2021/01/21 18:45
This is the best app if you are looking for a calmer mind. If you can afford it, I would HIGHLY recommend getting the premium version. Headspace literally saved my life.
Best App
by Dh92 on 2021/01/21 18:18
Headspace is my favorite app of all time. I use it every morning to have a focused, well rested mind.
Grounded
by daffodils are coming soon on 2021/01/21 16:32
Headspace not only gives me daily informational videos or relaxing bedtime images but is helping with the loss of my son to cancer. When grief hits hard, I remember “everything is changing,” and I can make it through.
Love it!
by Wendy57 on 2021/01/21 15:52
On my 3rd year of Headspace! So helpful with my SAD! I especially lie the nature stories on Thursdays with the Morning Wake up.
Awesome medication resource!!!!
by MamaCass86 on 2021/01/21 15:49
The app user experience is top notch- well organized, really aesthetically pleasing graphics and fun animations. LOVE all the guides, different focuses and the ability to sort through and choose a series or one off. Bedtime sleep casts are AMAZING! My daughter and I listen to one every night as she falls asleep. This has made incorporating meditation into my life so painless and joyful and it’s genuinely changing me for the better! Thank you Headspace!!! 💕
New to this
by Dbear1987 on 2021/01/21 15:15
New to learning about meditation . And I love all the lessons and info found in this app. There is also children lessons which is great too ! Love it from just scheming and listening to a few lessons and seeing a few relaxing clips. Everything is doable for even a busy mommy like me. Definitely recommend especially during this pandemic.
Does not have loving kindness or metta meditation
by shh2020 on 2021/01/21 13:54
It sends reminders to meditate, tracks minutes meditated and offers techniques embedded in each meditation. Which was key for me. I needed strategies that would retrain my brain. AND additionally I would like for it to track meditation data on a granular level. For example: Days of the week I meditated, techniques I “mastered”, etc
My Time
by Babsbda on 2021/01/21 13:46
I have learned I need to meditate every day to feel centered. I like the different places available for various situations. I have one question... where is The Wakeup? That alone encouraged me to begin my morning meditation. Each presentation was interesting, the people knowledgeable and friendly, and the subject matter always informative. Even the little opening jingle was pleasant and I looked forward to it every day. Thank you for Headspace.
Great But...
by carefreed on 2021/01/21 13:12
Loved using Headspace for meditation as well as a sleep aid for months. I have noticed marked improvement in my stress and anxiety levels partially due to the resources on this app. That said, it’s clear that Andy and Headspace are choosing to sell themselves out to companies that have nothing to do with meditation. Music and workouts in a meditation app? What? Stay true to yourself. Eh, I guess it’s just business.
Spam emails
by rightaway01 on 2021/01/21 12:33
I haven&#39;t used the app that much so I cant say much for it, but ever since I signed up on here, I have been getting slammed with phishing emails like “You’ve won! Claim Your Prize Immediately!!” Or “Your account has been compromised”. I haven&#39;t signed up for anything else recently with that email so I have a good feeling It was because of this. Just be careful out there.
Please
by bmeg24 on 2021/01/21 12:14
Hi sorry to bother you but I am a child and I think that you should make all of your Sessions free instead of 60$. Just my opinion on it don’t think that I am forcing you to do it 🙂. Have a nice day! Thanks Bailey Charbonneau
Love it!!!

LOVE this app!
by mmcveigg on 2021/01/21 04:18
For the first time in years, I am meditating almost daily. I appreciate the choices so much and the sleep section is particularly good for me! I have tried a few meditation apps and none have worked for me as well as this one!
Thank you, all at Headspace!
by New Practioner on 2021/01/21 02:28
Am so grateful for this app!! I am an entry level practitioner, and I appreciate the guided meditations, as well as, the group meditations. I love the sound meditations, particularly the ocean pier recordings, which help me to relax before sleeping. One day, maybe I will be fit enough to try the exercises😜. Headspace has been a much-appreciated respite from the stress of frontline covid and from 24/7 political stress. Truly. Thank you for all that you do to make this practice understandable and available!🙂❤️
My experience
by Futzen on 2021/01/20 23:22
Over the years, Headspace—and Andy’s soothing voice—have helped me maintain perspective and have helped me on the journey of trying to live in the present. I recommend it to anyone!!
Meditation made simple
by farbrush on 2021/01/20 23:00
Fun animations, themes for whatever you’re feeling, and a teacher that’s like able and soothing
You can’t afford not to meditate!
by Karl.H. on 2021/01/20 22:44
I am training myself to use healthier coping techniques when handling my mental health symptoms. For example, I have utilized the SOS meditation feature from Headspace and couldn’t believe the results. I thought it laughable. How could a 3 min meditation remove that tightness in my chest and feeling of dread?!? And I’m not even “good” at meditating, doesn’t matter. I tried. I tried and it worked. And if the feeling came back. I just did the meditation again. I’d rather do 3 x 3min meditations a day over an unhealthy response. Headspace is a blessing and an absolute must for my health and wellness. It would be terribly sad to under estimate the power of meditation— I learned this first hand. I wish I would have been doing this years ago. Want to change your life? Here’s how.
Life Changing
by Juijubeans on 2021/01/20 22:33
I first tried this app for free a couple of years ago but then soon deleted it. I didn’t really try. It wasn’t until I saw Headspace Guide to Meditation on Netflix that I was able to fully grasp the concept. I’ve learned so much and continue to dig deeper on how meditation helps me mentally, emotionally and physically. Being stuck at home during Covid can bring a lot of anxiety and depression. This app has helped extremely, it has done wonders and will continue to help me live to the fullest. I ask please, if you are suffering from any of these or stress or even pain, to please please do yourself a favor and try it. Please also watch the show on Netflix. I will forever be thankful for Headspace. It’s a life changer. ❤️
Very helpful
by stop nintendo on 2021/01/20 21:08
I’m a cancer survivor and deal with a lot of anxiety and depression. Combined with medication and meditation, I’ve been better able to handle it.

Nothing Short of Life Changing.
by Bunny_Shaidy on 2021/01/20 16:40
From socially anxious and feeling that a part of myself was lost to overcoming my self deprecating mindset and finally loving myself, headspace has been my guide through it all. No therapist, self medication/prescriptions, has been able to help me the way that mindfulness meditation has. I cried when my free trial was finished and I continue to buy headspace annually since 2017. I am eternally grateful for this application, it has sincerely been a beacon of hope for me from the beginning. I’ve seen it grow so much in popularity and for good reason, it is the easiest way to learn how to meditate. I couldn’t have done it without you, Andy. I hold a very special place in my heart for you. Self development, spirituality and love is my main focus in this life thanks to this newfound way of dealing with my neurosis that I have been blessed to have given the opportunity to grow from. 🥺♥️🧠🫀🫁 🧘🏽‍♀️🏵
This app has changed my life for the better this year
by Micah Sherman on 2021/01/20 16:25
I am able to go through life with more serenity and wisdom because I’m able to take a few minutes everyday to calm myself and focus. Thank you.
Where has this app been all my life?
by JaneWolfe on 2021/01/20 16:23
I love meditation. Love. It. It’s my new favorite thing to do. The guides give just the right amount of prompts to lead and guide you through the process. And constantly remind you that it’s ok to get distracted as you go along. You don’t become a master overnight. I’ve had this app on my phone for several months and finally just decided that my life needed a change. I felt stressed more often than not and overwhelmed by all the changes being forced on us in our lives. And I decided I didn’t want to live in that negative space anymore. After only a few weeks of using the Headspace app, I can feel a change. I feel lighter, happier, and overall find it easier to let go of the negative emotions I’m experiencing, rather than holding onto them, fixating on them and letting them run my life. Meditation is leading me down a path toward peace, patience and a better understanding of myself and by extension, the world around me. I cannot emphasize enough how much I love this app and deeply appreciate the people who created it. Thank you. This is exactly what I needed in my life.

What a blessing!
by skysdaughter on 2021/01/20 15:32
Working in mental health you would think that I would be better at caring for myself. I gave lip service to self care in reality. Headspace has given me a structure that I use several times a day. And with all that is going on in the world, the timing was perfect.
Amazing

Headspace is incredibe
Wonderful
by Toy_belle on 2021/01/20 15:06
This app has helped me tremendously. After I finished the anxiety course... my mind, body and spirit has become so much more clear. I want to thank Andy for that. I still use the app everyday. It’s WONDERFUL!

Great life hack
by Red Tanager on 2021/01/20 14:28
This app makes daily meditation possible for me. When I’m exhausted and I feel like I can’t sit still for 20 minutes on my own, this app has a way of “tricking” me into doing that very same thing. Sometimes, finding the smooth path in my life involves tricking my clever and devious brain. This app is a great life hack
HEADSPACE. To infinity and beyond 🙏🏻

The best mediation app I have found that keeps me engaged and coming back
by learning to manage the anxiety on 2021/01/20 13:07
This mediation app is great for people who are new to the practice. Using this app daily has changed my life for the better.
The voices of the teachers are soothing.
by SaiatS on 2021/01/20 12:53
This app helps me stay the course of meditation that I chose. It helps with the soothing voices and pleasant visuals of the app interface.
This app is beyond worth it.
by B.G.1617 on 2021/01/20 12:36
I’ve had headspace for two years now and I couldn’t imagine life without it. It has taught me so much and helped me find so much clarity. I love the everyday wake up, the courses, and the Move section they added is a wonderful addition. Will be renewing again for next year!
Diverse voices
by Thisnameisnottakennow on 2021/01/20 12:24
Several sleep casts only feature BIPOC voices when they’re tied to stereotypical roles. For example, Carlos (spanish accent) only featured in El Mercado. Brian (Asian accent) only featured in Temple Rain. Kim (African American woman) only featured in Salon Nights. Including diverse voice actors across all the sleep casts could undermine the typical tropes western cultures have historically imposed on “other” identities. There’s an opportunity to challenge the historically prejudiced stereotypes that maintain that certain identities can only exist if fitting into well-worn mischaracterizations. Please reconsider how to cast voice actors.
The best app for getting mindfulness!
by valerie.tale on 2021/01/20 11:11
Headspace is a great app that has everything you may need to get some mindfulness in your life. There’s everything to learn meditating, sleep well, start your day right and even more. Also I like the design very much, it’s easy to use and pleasant to look at. I want to thank Andy and all the members of the Headspace team for this amazing work they have made!
Mostly great
by cpevans on 2021/01/20 09:30
But why on earth do Sleepcasts, Sleepscapes, Sleep Radio, etc. count towards Stats? The only thing that should count towards “Total Time Meditated” is time meditated! Not the hour of soundscape after I fall asleep. Edit: Can someone explain to me why sleepcasts don’t always include narration? I’ve been listening to “Cabin Porch” for 25 minutes and haven’t heard a peep from Darren. Tgis happens with several other sleepcasts as well. If no one is talking, shouldn’t it just be a soundscape? And, finally, why isn’t there an option to choose Airplay from the sleepcast screen? I have to work around by first selecting a soundscape, choose my speaker in Airplay, then back out to the sleepcast I want, and then it works but this is super annoying. And, for the love of all that is holy, give us the option to choose whether or not we want soundscapes to count towards time meditated.
Greatly improved my life.
by An Angry Minion on 2021/01/20 05:55
The wide range of guided meditations, playlists, and explanations are what set Headspace apart. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
This app is absolutely essential
by Catgrl548🐾😺🐈 on 2021/01/20 05:36
If you see this review please read. Headspace helped me through a horrible period in my life of depression and some suicidal thought. the anxiety courses as well help since i suffer from bad anxiety too. please download this app if you haven’t and yes it costs money but i got it for free through my job. even if you don’t get it for free, trust me it will be the best money you’ve ever spent. thank you for your time:)
Amazing!!
by Sidney W. R. on 2021/01/20 04:06
I’m still learning all the tricks of meditation, but I am enjoying it so much. I genuinely feel so different after getting up from my meditation. I’m so much more at ease and level headed. Thank you, Headspace!! 🧡
I wouldn’t want to live without Headspace.
by Wildwood-By-The-Sea on 2021/01/20 03:32
Seriously, this is working for me. My headspace is more spacious and less worried and cluttered with inane thoughts. Started with fundamentals, then Anxiety and now Creativity. Works well for me and I have tried other meditation or mindfulness products.
Extremely effective
by HJ Forfha on 2021/01/20 03:29
I only just started meditating mostly as a means to calm my easily stressed mind from college and I can say that every time I use it I feel a great sense of calm. It has only been a week and I am beginning to have a whole now look on life and how to approach it. This app is definitely worth the money.
It’s good but too expensive
by Jordan Korolden on 2021/01/20 03:03
So I have been using headspace. I have had to do the same session over and over again. I wish that it would be free so I can try all of the sessions without having to pay a ridiculous amount of money. I think that having to pay for an app that helps you to be calm and close to falling asleep. I have issues falling asleep so I got this app but it wasn’t worth it because I have to pay to use most of it. I am only 14 and I can’t pay for it. I wish that is were to be free. Instead of having to pay a ridiculous amount of money for an app like this. So don’t get this app if you don’t wanna pay for it try and use other things that are free to use or try.
Well done
by ssrrrbbb on 2021/01/20 02:33
Enjoy and benefit from numerous features including the morning wake up, daily meditation and focus music for work. I was signed up and started over a year pre Covid - the site continues to evolve and is truly a part of my daily routine.
Important, helpful and game-changing.
by Rolling29 on 2021/01/20 02:25
Since discovering Headspace about 3 years ago, I’ve done it daily with only 3 missed days. That’s how important it is to me and my mental balance. I recommend strongly!
Best App
by Kay Smalls on 2021/01/20 02:17
I can’t say enough good things about this app! I’ve used it a couple of years now and it’s saved my life. Great gift idea for friends too.
Life changing

Headspace has been a life changing app for me. I depend on the sounds and the stories to send me off to sleep . My sleep has I improved greatly from the breathing exercises. I did try a few of the other apps that are available and most definitely think Headspace is the one that seems almost custom made for me and my lifestyle

Headspace is a really good app. It’s great if you have anxiety or if you overthink a lot. And it helps me calm down when I’m anxious or when I need to go to bed.
Good!!

A lot of these courses are like a therapy session. I have been using this app for 2 years and it’s become such a positive part of my life!
Starting Headspace
by TheVivian on 2021/01/19 22:16
I downloaded this app to help me feel more focused in school and at home. Even after one session, I feel more relaxed and aware of my surroundings. I recommend this app to anyone who experiences a lot of stress, or anyone who wants to improve their lifestyle.
Incredible tool for mindfulness
by darkbloomfoto on 2021/01/19 21:14
I’m still fairly young, 24 years old, but in my life so far I’ve acquired a lot of emotional stress. Clinical anxiety and depression, mostly stemming from trauma. But also just becoming aware of aging and time. Cosmologically feeling small and insignificant, that life is pointless. Existential anxiety has seemed to take hold of my mind every day, exacerbating the anxiety and depression I already suffer from. This app is something I’m truly grateful for. (Along with the series they recently added on Netflix!) More than aware there’s no cure or abolition of negative thoughts and feelings in their entirety. Realizing it’s all part of the human condition and important to learn how to be aware and navigate stress. Headspace is easy to use and perfectly introduces meditation to people like me who never thought they needed it. Especially when it comes to attention/focus, the guided meditation is exceptional. The interface is clean and smoothly designed. I can’t recommend this enough!
Awesome

So again Buddhist principles. I pay for premium yet I’m forcibly subjected to advertising on a regular basis. How is that a way to treat customers? Insight timer or Calm is the way to go!

The best of the meditation apps.
by ELeatherwood on 2021/01/19 17:14
If you want an all-purpose practical experience this is the beat. Waking Up by Sam Harris is also excellent, but skews toward the philosophically minded. Calm could be great, but is ruined entirely by the saccharine, insincere voice of Tamara Leavitt.
The Space Feels Amazing in Head!
by Grantski! on 2021/01/19 16:47
I started using Headspace regularly 3 months ago. I didn’t know how cluttered my mind was until I tried to sit in silence for 10 minutes.... That one experience changed my perception of myself and the category of meditation. I’ve got a long ways to go, but headspace scales with my learning. It really is the holistic package👌🏻 u the techniques behind the practice!

Headspace- what to expect
by mj criner on 2021/01/19 16:15
Amazing app. Whether you’re looking for an entry into meditation or expanding your practice, this is a great starting place... specifically for meditation/mindfulness only, that is. In that way, it can be life changing. The UX is okay; you kind of have to dig around in a not-so-intuitive way to get into other features, but some essentials are laid out plainly upon opening the app. It’s still 70USD/yr. So, a tune up in that department wouldn’t hurt. The voices are very pleasant, but I wonder if using only British accents deters a more diverse audience (i.e., people who are already a tough sell [i.e., british accents = liberal conspiracy ~ U.S.A.] but would benefit tremendously from meditation, and people who might consider using British accents in this context to be appropriation/co-opting target cultures of some kind). Just some thoughts for a potential reality.

Headspace is a true focus on the practice of mindfulness. Instructional and guided for long term results. Not a series of licensed opportunities for celebrities or influencers like Calm.

Grateful for Headspace
by MH from Keizer on 2021/01/19 14:28
I’m so grateful for Headspace. My husband died in February 2020. Shortly after his death everything was shut down due to Covid-19. I was grieving and the loneliness was unbearable. I did the counseling course. It helped me so much, Andy’s voice was like listening to a friend. I’m still lonely and grieving but I’m looking forward to the future. Thank you Headspace.

by nicekid21 on 2021/01/19 13:34
This app has really opened my eyes to a new way of living life. This is actually the only app that has had a positive impact on my life. There are ways to cope with anxiety and ruminating thoughts. When I find myself in difficult situations mentally, I am always reminded to pay attention to my breath and let my thoughts pass through me because sometimes our thoughts don’t need to be taken so seriously. Thank you for helping my mindfulness journey, Headspace.

by CateKed on 2021/01/19 13:17
Daily meditation with Headspace has improved my ability to manage hardships and stress (and there are many), has brought focus to my life, has strengthened my relationships with those I love and care about. Often, it’s only 5 minutes a day, but it’s the best 5 minutes I give to myself. I love that headspace keeps adding partnerships and resources, especially for sleep. Kevin Hart’s Energy Shots are so fun and unexpected for a meditation app! Thank you, Headspace, for changing my life.

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.
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.
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&#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 :)
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!
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.
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.
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.
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...

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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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. 😊
Replacing my social media
by jennibean123 on 2019/08/10 14:57
I’ve had an on-again/off-again relationship with headspace for a few years. I love the app, but I’ve had trouble committing and usually fall away after a week or so. However, after having a stressful week, I deleted social media. I was still wanting something to help manage my thoughts, so I returned to Headspace. Since my last use (about a year ago), they’ve added many courses and sessions. And it’s pretty reasonably priced, too! I do one when I wake, one during a short break at work, one when I get home, and one before sleep. I feel better than ever, even though the stresses are still there. I’m especially fond of group meditation, it’s nice to feel a part of something. I love all the options and the reminders. Plus the goal of completing a course is enough to keep me coming back and get in the habit. I think it’s one I’ll keep this time. My brain needs it. I love this app and everyone involved in developing and creating it!! Thanks headapace!!
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.
A REALLY good app - thank you for creating it!
by MJF in HI on 2018/04/15 02:19
This app has changed my life. After going through some really weird and confusing mid-life events starting about 7 months ago I developed insomnia and anxiety. Never having experienced either before I was very ill equipped to cope with what to me were entirely new feelings and worries. I stumbled on Headspace, and have meditated every day for the last six months. Although it takes some time, if you stick with it, these methods really work. I’m sleeping again, I’m less worried, and I think I understand my own mind and perhaps the minds of others a little bit better. I’ve subsequently read a fair bit about meditation, and my impression is that the methods in Headspace are very much the real deal. They are also presented in a completely secular manner, which I appreciate. The ‘pro’ packs get a little mystical, but, at least for me, in a thought provoking and fun sort of way. I honestly believe this app has contributed to better world.
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.
Great guided meditations but frustrated with the gamification
by Jpweller on 2019/04/01 03:56
I can thank Headspace for helping me make meditating a daily habit. Their Stress and Anxiety course helped me a lot through a recent breakup. I’ve now moved onto other courses, which I find equally as helpful. However, I believe their gamification of meditation goes against the mindful ethos. For this reason, I am giving it four stars. I shouldn’t be made feel guilty for not using Headspace for my daily meditation. If they are going to gamify meditation, they should allow you to add time you’ve meditated off the app. This would actually be a reason to keep the app once I no longer want to use guided meditations as frequently. But I will probably cancel my subscription after a year. I do highly recommend to anyone getting into meditation to subscribe for at least a year. Or use any other meditation app. It’s changed my relationship to my emotions for the better, made me more present in social interactions, and made me more empathetic and compassionate. I encourage everyone to give it a try.
Some pretty bad customer service
by GB278 on 2018/02/06 03:21
The idea and simplicity of headspace is good. I had their annual subscription. Had. However, their customer service to two recent inquiries were so bad, I had to put myself in a state of being mindful just to keep the cool. Don’t get angry. The not-so-pleasant experience from customer service turns to this: “C’mon, simply note it and back to breathing.” And just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water, the thought of their poor customer service once again enters my mind. “Note it. Brush it aside. Focus on the breath.” Cool. All done. So, because of remaining cool, here’s the good to this: I was able to later take the time, research several other meditation or mindfulness apps, and find three very good ones. Of those, I’ve purchased one that I absolutely love. It was like “where were you all my life?” And if the app could speak, it was as if it said, “I was always here. You just had to sift through the weeds to experience what really matters.”
Your method is very good
by Gruncherzzzz on 2017/10/28 08:33
I do like your method very much my only problem is that sometime when I miss a day it jump the next day and I can’t practice or go back and also in the very beginning I made it only for three minutes which is very short and when I wanted to make it longer instead of three minutes to start from the beginning and to have like at least 10 minutes if not more I wasn’t able to do that I would like very much to start doing the basic from the very beginning for 15 minutes every day if it what if it’s possible to do the same couple of times every day and definitely don’t let me skip anything any day thank you very much I’m sure that after doing the basic and a little More probably I will join your program one One more important question is if that I have l am not sure if I paid for something or not in your program I appreciate if you could let me know what’s my situation
Incredible tool for mindfulness
by darkbloomfoto on 2021/01/19 21:14
I’m still fairly young, 24 years old, but in my life so far I’ve acquired a lot of emotional stress. Clinical anxiety and depression, mostly stemming from trauma. But also just becoming aware of aging and time. Cosmologically feeling small and insignificant, that life is pointless. Existential anxiety has seemed to take hold of my mind every day, exacerbating the anxiety and depression I already suffer from. This app is something I’m truly grateful for. (Along with the series they recently added on Netflix!) More than aware there’s no cure or abolition of negative thoughts and feelings in their entirety. Realizing it’s all part of the human condition and important to learn how to be aware and navigate stress. Headspace is easy to use and perfectly introduces meditation to people like me who never thought they needed it. Especially when it comes to attention/focus, the guided meditation is exceptional. The interface is clean and smoothly designed. I can’t recommend this enough!
Good, but not as great a selection as it might seem

While I enjoy the user friendliness of the app, appreciate the videos as well as the range of meditation themes, I’ve begun to regret having subscribed for a whole year in advance. The more packages and singles I look into, the more it seems that a lot of the sessions ultimately follow the same structure, use one (or more) of the same hand full of techniques, just the “packaging” changes (mediation for sleep, productivity, healing etc.). The singles seem to be more varied, but they, too, largely follow the same layout, just with a different theme wrapped around it. If only there were at least more variety to the visualization technique; I love meditating using visualization, but the one I’ve come across in all but one case (liquid sun light) does not do it for me. Granted, I haven’t listened to all sessions offered, and I’ll gladly take back what I’ve said if there’s more variety to the session structure or the techniques and I’ve just haven’t seen it yet. It would be disappointing, though, if the current pattern I’m seeing holds up for the rest of the packages.
Loved at first

I loved it the first day I tried it in February 2020 and purchased a year long subscription. I use it several times a day and my four year old and I fall asleep to the sleep casts every night. I cope with severe anxiety on a daily basis and during the pandemic this has been extremely challenging. Three nights ago I really needed my favorite windown and sleepcast and they are all locked and it’s asking me to start a free trial if I want to use them. I have followed all the advice on the help section to try to restore my purchase but even under my subscriptions it shows I am a subscriber and it doesn’t expire until feb 2021. I’ve emailed headspace and have heard nothing back and also tried the chat and it just feeds me the same unhelpful help and then prompts me to email them again. If I get this resolved I’ll update and add more stars but I’m extremely disappointed right now and not happy with the lack of customer service. Maybe I will switch to Calm
