    When my blood pressure spikes above 150/95 I use meditation to calm me down and lower my pressure. HeadSpace has been helping me with this for over 7 years. 20 minutes of meditation will bring my pressure down to my normal range.

    It’s hard for me to get a moment to myself sometimes, but when I do lately I’ve been making it a habit to meditate. The guided meditations in Headspace really help me to unwind and leave me feeling refreshed and renewed.

    7 days into quitting cold turkey might have you feeling anxious. But it helps to get into the right “Headspace” with 10 -15 minute guided meditations that will keep you mindful and focused on your goals.

    It can be hard to find inner peace when dealing with PTSD. Headspace guides you through 10-minute meditation programs so you can calm your mind and find clarity.  You can also find programs for dealing with other life challenges like anxiety, self-esteem, anger, and more.

    Headspace is one of the best app to deal with anxiety in our monotonous life. It has really mitigated my habit of overthinking. I prefer this app to everyone who want to live much of a blissful life with no stress.

    Taking just a few minutes out of your morning to practice mindfulness with guided meditation can make all the difference. You will be amazed at the difference of how you can handle unexpected stress or negativity. You will start looking forward to your “me” time with Headspace everyday.

    Fibromyalgia is known as the fight or flight disease as your nervous system is on alert 24/7. Controlling your breathing and reducing your body's stress load has been shown to help reduce symptoms in many fibromyalgia patients.

    Meditation and breathing exercises are some of the best ways to let go of stress and anger. With tracked progress, you can record how long you've spent on these exercises. It also offers a 10-day meditation course that will help you become more mindful and stress-free too.

    Soon after a breakup, you are likely to go through a riot of emotions. Taking a meditation course can help ease this turmoil and let you become more mindful, reduce stress and more importantly, help you relax. The 10-day course should likely help you get back on track.

    You won’t regret buying a Headspace subscription. I often joke with people that Headspace is the one thing I would want to take with me to a desert island. If I were to cancel all of my subscriptions today, Headspace is the one exception I would make. I’m a high school English teacher, and our administration put together a month-long mindfulness education program for our students shortly after I subscribed. I had already raved to many of them about the app and the benefits of taking a couple of minutes out of their day to sit and be present. Lo and behold, Andy pops up on the next slide as our Ted Talk speaker of the day! On a more serious note, I suffer from debilitating chronic pain. I’m currently on long-term disability and a leave of absence from the classroom. Mindfulness, and the courses on managing pain, have been a tremendous help in my journey. Not only that, but I struggle with insomnia. My favorite part of Headspace, because of my (admittedly) vivid imagination, are the sleepcasts. I love falling asleep to Rainday Antiques. I can’t imagine doing anything but that ever again. I have learned to manage stress and anxiety in a way that I had never thought was possible. I have meditated in the waiting room of The Cleveland Clinic before my appointments. I once laughed at the idea of mindfulness and meditation. Now it’s an integral part of my life. It’s part of my journey, and I think everyone could benefit from it.

    I have always loved this app. It's great that there is free content available. I subscribe bc there are some more in-depth courses I'm interested in, but the free stuff is excellent and effective too. I love Andy's voice, all the trainers sound personable, kind, easy to sit with. Very educational content, helps people really understand what mindfulness and meditation truly are and can be for them.

    I was introduced to meditation more than 25 years ago and have had a relatively steady practice. So why do I use Headspace? Like any practice it is tempting to slack off or feel like you “got” all the benefits and do not need to do it anymore. Other times it can feel like one is alone in the practice and it becomes hard to motivate oneself. Headspace helps me stay motivated and consistent. And no matter how long one has practiced, having a community of meditators is very helpful to continue practicing. I also have a tendency to get bored with things including meditation, so the variety of approaches, techniques, and goals provided keep it fresh. During 2020 I really appreciated the improvements made by Headspace especially the daily conversations by other meditators, the addition of the Move feature, and the Sleep tools. These were very helpful to keep my spirits up, my body moving, and my meditation practice on track. I also discovered the Pro series for advanced meditators. I am listening to it for a second time because as I have learned in my practice, you are never “done” learning and growing as a meditator. The same session at a different time gives you different insights. I am grateful to the Headspace team for creating and continually evolving the app to meet the challenges of today. And for helping a seasoned “pro” stay fresh and present. Thank you Headspace!
  • Head Space, The Final Frontier Aug 8, 2021

    I began using this application a few years back, in the middle of my college career. I was so stressed out at that time that I could hardly perform day-to-day tasks and I was so broke that I certainly couldn't afford help from a specialist. Enter HeadSpace. I found the app through an online search and began a free trial to try to calm my tumultuous inner consciousness. Though I cannot say that the improvements in my thoughts and behavior were immediate, the guidance of Andy's voice (the only option at that time and still my personal favorite) did help to calm me in times of immediate need. If nothing else, this app taught me to breath. My father was so impressed by my lack of mouth-breathing that he took up the monthly fee once it began and I have used Head Space (now on my own dime, thank you) ever since. Anyway, whether you are looking for help breathing, getting into shape, falling to sleep, or in quieting those misguided negative inner-voices that come to plague the chronically unhappy, HeadSpace has something for you (often more than one thing, in fact). If you're reading this and thinking about a trial or a membership, give it a shot. It's a judgment-free, stress-free, and until your trial runs out, a free-free way of beginning the mission to exploring and conquering anxiety and exestential dread. Consider it one small step for you, and one giant leap (in the right direction) for your mind.

    I hated meditation until I tried Headspace. The way the beginner course framed meditation made so much sense to me, and the freedom to mix it up between courses, daily meditations, and "sos" singles has kept my ADHD brain coming back again and again. Thank you for making this app - it's worth every penny. Building a meditation habit has improved my patience so much!
  • The most useful thing I’ve done in 2020 Jan 18, 2021

    By Kindly38
    This app has given me tools to deal with constant change. This past year, I’ve needed to pivot every day to face some new challenge outside as an essential worker, and at home in isolation with my partner. The tools I Iearned to use to be present in the moment and to accept change has benefited my partner and colleagues at work as much as my own peace of mind. I have very little control over my environment, but I can see my reaction, accept the emotions that rise up, and move on instead of getting lost or bound by them. This app has also benefited me by helping me get through insomnia. Sometimes it helps me get to sleep in the first place. Mostly it gives me tools to use to calm my mind and body when I wake up in the night buffeted by anxiety or lingering frustration from the day. Lastly, this app has given me a language to express the emotional upheaval and troubling questions that I used to just call anxiety. Naming what makes me feel upset has brought clarity to what can feel like a tempest at the time and allow me to look at my thoughts or, rather, face them. After acknowledging them, I can let them go. Sometimes I’m better at that than at other times. Regular exercise strengthens my focus, my ability to pivot and refocus, and builds roads of calm and quiet that the brain finds easier to fall into and travel due to constant use.
  • It’s a Miracle App! Feb 8, 2021

    By jlhuggins
    This app has helped me so much! When I am suffering from stress, health anxiety, or fibro/stress related body pains I turn to this app and go through some meditations with the teachers. It’s an excellent way for me to relax. Calm my mind. Stop thinking about myself. And to recover in the moment. Hopefully in time this will help me heal, as previously I’ve just been getting worse and worse without any therapy since my therapist’s practice permanently shutdown from COVID. This has been a great help and is something I can just pull out of my pocket and sit in my bedroom for a bit to calm down. Well worth the 1 year subscription price I’ve paid. Thank you! 😊🙏🏻 *There is only one thing that I’d change. This would be for some of the workout audios. I need to walk a lot for a heart condition I have (which is a big cause of my health anxiety), and I’d love to see the audios for walks and runs to be a bit longer. The longest run audio I see is 20 minutes, when recommended cardio workout lengths realistically should be at least 30 minutes. I’d really like to have an audio similar to the bedtime audios that are lengthy, have soothing talk, and tips to reduce anxiety made to be listened while walking. And if there could be a variety to choose from. Overall this would be the only change I can think of. An hour long walk audio to help calm my mind. 😁❤️

    I freaking love this app. My anxiety was starting to become bad again and I could feel myself falling into depression. I have some experience with meditation and mindfulness and it’s helped me in the past but I’ve never been able to stick with it for more than a couple of weeks at a time. Then one day while listening to Huberman’s podcast there was a month free trial and I decided to try it since I’ve always wanted to give this app a go anyway. WELL, let me tell you...this app is changing my life. I am proud to say I am on my 33rd day streak. I can feel myself overall being more present and aware throughout the day. Now, when I start to feel anxious I almost immediately catch myself and can begin using some of the tools and practice I’ve accumulated from headspace. I do want to add though, the key word is PRACTICE. Medication, like Andy says, is a skill and like any skill you must practice. By practicing enough, it does truly become second nature. I know it’s only been a month but I can already feel the difference and I am looking forward to the future. Thank you headspace team. P.S every little thing about this app is great. I especially love the different courses, the wake ups, the animation shorts, the sleepcasts, the focus music and yoga.
  • Headspace is a excellent, but isn’t truly free May 17, 2021

    By VictorAllThingsTech
    I heard about this app on tv and saw ads in The Today section of the App Store. I decided to give it a try and it really does help me out. I feel less stressed, calm, and feel ready for anything. It’s like a guide or tool which helps push you to be a better you. So then comes the question, is it worth it? I think so. For instance if you have ADHD or feel stressed most days (maybe because of work or school) use this. Everything is not sunshine and rainbows. For one, $13 to me feels somewhat pricey. Other meditation apps that I found are cheaper than what Headspace currently offers. Another thing is that it lacks free content. There’s only very little that Headspace offers and it’s not a lot. It’s almost as if your forced into paying for a subscription in order to use it. I really didn’t want to do that and I have now canceled it since I felt that it was overly priced. Headspace is great and I may say that’s is better than most apps I’ve used. But I don’t like the fact that after going through the tutorial it locks most of the content Headspace offers you and forces you into a subscription that feels overly priced. Yeah, they give you a free trial but after that your pretty much forced. Offer more videos that are free and let people decide for themselves. If you do those things I may bump my stars to 5.

    Be sure to get the $9.99/yr student rate! Super worth it! I've been using this app for over 2 years and it have been adding more and more useful courses, tips, and features. The sleepcasts are a godsend and I am really starting to like the quick daily "wake up" message\meditations. I wish there was access to past "wake up" videos for the days I missed because I've learned so many scientific discoveries and useful tips from those videos that I always feel bummed when I miss a day.

    Very frustrating... I downloaded the app made an account it seems like almost everything requires a subscription!!! I couldn't even do the sunny 1 minute breathing exercise more than once... That seems like the most basic thing, and yet it's trying to force me to pay to use it more than one time 😞😞😞

    I was using the app for the free courses, The Basics, while I learn the practice. And now they're locked suddenly and there is no more free content at all. I was learning a lot with those courses and feel like they need to be free. As a new meditator, I don't want to purchase the whole library when I'm just a beginner. I planned on purchasing later as I progressed, but now I'll have to find a new app to practice on... :(

    The content is great! I really enjoy all the courses, but the app will freeze non-stop. This happens 1 minute or so into a meditation or any of the other features. It is very discouraging when you are trying to get your zen on. Any ways to fix this? As of now, I have canceled my annual renewal for the app.

    I don't normally buy into these app help apps. I was given a subscription. This one proves my point. Nothing seems to be available offline! No sleep noise etc. Its very data heavy for someone who doesn't have data! So if you've got a good plan provider, yes.do it. If not, no don't.....

    I got this through work but not enjoying it. Its very Americanised. I also find it glitchy. Tonight I listened to the Sleep Inn story and after 10 minutes it reset itself back to the beginning of the session. I actually find this app adds to stress because it's irritating to use. Which defeats the object. I've tried for a month but I realise I'm not getting much relaxation or mindfulness from using it. Funny it did an update today too. If I uninstall it I won't download it again. Disappointing

    Hi, to whom it may concern, I used to have a trail subscription for free from headspace due to the fact I was rewarded a 3 month trail from a online catch card from Vodafone. (cellular network provider) i downloaded the app and i unsubscried/deleted the app afterwards because I did want to pay for the subscription in the future. I just recently received notification, that €59 has been debit ordered from account which I did not give authorisation to do so, i unsubscried from the app longntime ago

    Too expensive. There isn't a single track, at least not that I could find, that didn't have the ridiculous $13 a month price tag - especially when other apps do the same thing. Don't get fooled by "free to use." Rainday antiques was the only free one, and suddenly it's locked. Uninstalling because of this.
  • Sep 10, 2021

    By Danae Meurer
    this would be such an amazing app if it weren't so expensive. I have been using the only 4 free options, but I guess they recently removed that so now it's completely unusable. I'm really sad cause now I have to go searching for a completely new one that probably only has a few free options too. Please make it so I can use it again. :(
  • If only... Dec 29, 2018

    By Studying for life
    At first I really loved this app and I didn't miss that some of the sessions we'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'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't meditate or sleep😔 if you have enough money to subscribe to this app, good for you because it's very nice and will help you a lot but if you can't subscribe, don't get your hopes up with this app. I just really wish it had more features for people who can't subscribe because in the end it leaves no options if you can't. If it had more options, I would be giving them at most four stars but because the don't, they're left with one. I really do wish I could keep this app but right now it's just taking up space😖

WELL, let me tell you...this app is changing my life. I am proud to say I am on my 33rd day streak. I can feel myself overall being more present and aware throughout the day. Now, when I start to feel anxious I almost immediately catch myself and can begin using some of the tools and practice I’ve accumulated from headspace. I do want to add though, the key word is PRACTICE. Medication, like Andy says, is a skill and like any skill you must practice. By practicing enough, it does truly become second nature. I know it’s only been a month but I can already feel the difference and I am looking forward to the future. Thank you headspace team. P.S every little thing about this app is great. I especially love the different courses, the wake ups, the animation shorts, the sleepcasts, the focus music and yoga.

    Be sure to get the $9.99/yr student rate! Super worth it! I've been using this app for over 2 years and it have been adding more and more useful courses, tips, and features. The sleepcasts are a godsend and I am really starting to like the quick daily "wake up" message\meditations. I wish there was access to past "wake up" videos for the days I missed because I've learned so many scientific discoveries and useful tips from those videos that I always feel bummed when I miss a day.
  • Very good but expensive Jan 11, 2021

    By FortnitePro#1
    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.
  • Headspace is a excellent, but isn’t truly free May 17, 2021

    By VictorAllThingsTech
    I heard about this app on tv and saw ads in The Today section of the App Store. I decided to give it a try and it really does help me out. I feel less stressed, calm, and feel ready for anything. It’s like a guide or tool which helps push you to be a better you. So then comes the question, is it worth it? I think so. For instance if you have ADHD or feel stressed most days (maybe because of work or school) use this. Everything is not sunshine and rainbows. For one, $13 to me feels somewhat pricey. Other meditation apps that I found are cheaper than what Headspace currently offers. Another thing is that it lacks free content. There’s only very little that Headspace offers and it’s not a lot. It’s almost as if your forced into paying for a subscription in order to use it. I really didn’t want to do that and I have now canceled it since I felt that it was overly priced. Headspace is great and I may say that’s is better than most apps I’ve used. But I don’t like the fact that after going through the tutorial it locks most of the content Headspace offers you and forces you into a subscription that feels overly priced. Yeah, they give you a free trial but after that your pretty much forced. Offer more videos that are free and let people decide for themselves. If you do those things I may bump my stars to 5.

    would give 5 ✨ stars; but some of the music is not what I consider "relaxing". and some of it doesn't sound like anything at all. the water fall just sounds like static. as well as other supposedly realistic sounds. overall, you should be able to find something you like!
  • Too pricey for a college kid! Nov 25, 2018

    By Nick my name!!
    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.

    Love the app but it keeps pausing in the middle of meditation due to a connection error. I've tried connecting to wifi, making sure my connection is good, and even restating my phone before sessions and every time i do then20 minute session, it just randomly stops without warning and requires manual input to start back up. Would give 5 stars if this issue was fixed.
  • Love this app!! Dec 1, 2020

    By Chachey
    So I started using this app because my boyfriend said that I needed to start meditating due to my high levels of stress (and how easily I get stressed and I have poor stress management) and my because I am very easily angered and to him I just overall seem unhappy with life. I am only 24 so my stress shouldn’t be what it is in my opinion. So I took his advice on meditation and did some research and found this app. I’m still in the free trial stages of it but I will most definitely buy is once it ends. The reason I give 4 start is because I wish there were more mindful activities because of my job. I wake up at 6 am and come home from anywhere between 5pm - 11pm depending on the day I have. So it would be nice to have more mindful activities where I can use the app an work or do things at home with out it being the same thing. Or more on commuting. I’m driving all day long so to have something I can listen to while driving that isn’t music or just for a commute home would be nice. But other than that I have no complaints! I love it and I hope it gets me where I would like to be. And that is to be happy and content with my life as it is now. And not get so angry with things. I am really excited to keep using this app!
  • New to Headspace Old to meditation Apr 16, 2020

    By fawayadventures
    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.
  • Mediation is surprisingly awesome! Dec 28, 2018

    By cagueni
    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.
  • Amazing stories - Needs more Darren. Aug 15, 2021

    By Clowen H.
    Headspace is honestly one of the best "fall-asleep-quick" apps out there, and I'm personally convinced it's the best. It's amazing, lets you keep track of your goal(s), and you can choose what type of audio you'd like to listen to! However, as the title states, we need more audios read by Darren. I, personally, believe Darren is one of the best story-readers there are, and he honestly makes me feel genuinely happy amd loved. Now, I know Darren has a life, as everyone does, but I believe there needs to be more sleep audios read by Darren. Currently, there's only 5(Five) audios read by him, and as someone who has attatchment issues, I'd enjoy more audios read by him. If it's (at all) possible, you could maybe also have every story-teller have their own versions of each audio, Darren included, and the listener could choose who they want to listen to. You could also do this same thing with the variations of the audios, making it so that the listener can choose which variation of the story they want to listen to! Other than having more Darren in Headspace, I believe Headspace is an amazing, awesome, and fantastic "fall-asleep-quick" apps in the world.
  • An amazing app behind a pay wall Jul 31, 2019

    By Omegabuster125
    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.
  • Great app, but only one voice (sort of) Jun 5, 2019

    By nicknamenickleback
    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.
  • Sep 11, 2021

    By RNA Wireman
    This app would be so much better if you could download any of the files, not just short ones. The sleepcasts can only be streamed, not downloaded. If the app freezes (not uncommon!) or the internet is down, this feature of the app that I use most often is USELESS. For $75/yr I should be able to download any of the content. 😡
  • Sep 7, 2021

    By Livia Werren
    For me it is not worth the money. The meditations are always the same, only difference is the few words in the beginning. Most of the things you can easy find on youtube, like the animal videos or sports, even guided meditations and audio books. This app did put the things nice together, but I would not recommend to pay for that.
  • Great resource! Jan 15, 2021

    By zigalellium
    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.
  • A great app. Needs work Jun 9, 2021

    By Antiduplicity
    I give this app 5 stars because the build of this app, the contents of this app, the flow of this app is great. well done. Every app can be improved and this one needs work in some ways 1. the watch app: the only thing I every get on the watch app is a 1 minute "breath mini". the watch app is basically useless. Why can't I see my today screen on the watch and start my various mediations from the watch. the watch app gets 1 star. 2. Shortcuts: on the iphone I have setup a sleep schedule. On the "good night" screen I am given the option to run shortcuts. Headspace offers a few shortcuts that can be called from this screen. One is the nightly "sleepcast". the sleepcast is supposzed to be different every night. It is different on my today screen, but the shortcut always plays the "Rainyday Antiques". therefore the shortcut is useless. this part of the app gets 1 star. Lastly, the philosophy behind this app is mindlessness. It is taught as a universal fix for bringing the mind to a place of ease. As such it is a religious philosophy. I think they need to be more open about this and they need to state that the point of this is to alleviate suffering. This app looks like they did version 1 then stopped before finishing the details. Shortcuts must work for this app to be fully functional
  • Ok but could be better Jun 27, 2021

    By odd numbet
    personally, i love this app. the meditations are really helpful for my crippling anxiety, and i thoroughly enjoy watching the daily videos and doing the mindfulness moments. i also really like the new updated version with the dark mode and everything. however, i’m not as happy with headspace as i thought i would be when i got the app. i’m still a kid, and i’m not going to spend money to get headspace+, so i’ve had the normal version, however i’m very disappointed about the lack of content i have unlocked. i can only do a few meditations and they’re limited. this is very upsetting to me, and i’ve heard that others have felt the same way. i’m considering deleting headspace for exactly this reason: there’s not enough free content. soon enough i will run out of meditation sessions. i am not satisfied with this app. PLEASE unlock more content for those who don’t want or CANT spend money on headspace+!!!! you might lose this costumer to your app for just that reason. i need more content because my anxiety lately has been through the roof, so i would be excited to try out some new meditations but i CANT. please fix this!!!!!
  • Was hoping for more Jun 9, 2021

    By Drnkdrrck
    Not every technique works equally well for everyone, and I feel like they put an over emphasis on the body scan (which is admittedly one I’m not particularly fond of). They have courses like “dealing with anxiety” or “managing anger”, but they’re all essentially the same: “here’s some basic advice you’ll get from every therapist for 30 seconds, now let’s do 20 minutes of body scan.” I don’t feel like they really apply the meditation to the issues often enough, but the advice is decent. Also, in the beginners courses they mention a lot of abstract concepts that are supposed to help you but they don’t explain them very well or reinforce them very often. So half the time I find myself thinking “Wait, what does he mean by that again and how was I supposed go about it?” There are enough great meditation pointers though that it’s been super helpful to get over some hurdles I was struggling with and the voices are very relaxing. Unfortunately the content is a bit sparse given how much stuff they have posted and it can be difficult finding the gems when there’s so much filler to wade through.
  • Great app however... Jun 18, 2019

    By carolineehall91
    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.
  • Every meditation is the same Apr 14, 2018

    By Em122rm
    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.
  • Good, but not as great a selection as it might seem Nov 14, 2017

    By Pierrot606
    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.
  • Please stop those anxiety-triggering pop-up messages! May 6, 2021

    By whatnickname256
    I am having my COVID shot the next day and REALLY wanted to have a nice sleep before that. I took one meditation session before going to bed in headspace. As usual, it worked nicely BUT when I reached to my phone to close the app, a pop up message showed up saying “Can’t sleep? Try our new sleepcast” it immediately triggered my anxiety of afraid of losing sleep, and I wasn’t able to sleep that night and had to cancel my COVID shot appointment. This is really disappointing from a meditation app as this kind of message can easily trigger someone who’s already anxious (and those are often the users of headspace). Especially this is an in-app pop up that you cannot disable in the iOS system setting. I am not sure why this message will show up at that time and I don’t want to assume bad intentions (after all Headspace had helped me quite a lot and I am thankful). Please stop sending these kinds of anxiety-triggering messages or at least allow us to disable them! From a 5-year customer.

    The content is great! I really enjoy all the courses, but the app will freeze non-stop. This happens 1 minute or so into a meditation or any of the other features. It is very discouraging when you are trying to get your zen on. Any ways to fix this? As of now, I have canceled my annual renewal for the app.

    I don't normally buy into these app help apps. I was given a subscription. This one proves my point. Nothing seems to be available offline! No sleep noise etc. Its very data heavy for someone who doesn't have data! So if you've got a good plan provider, yes.do it. If not, no don't.....

    this would be such an amazing app if it weren't so expensive. I have been using the only 4 free options, but I guess they recently removed that so now it's completely unusable. I'm really sad cause now I have to go searching for a completely new one that probably only has a few free options too. Please make it so I can use it again. :(

    Very frustrating... I downloaded the app made an account it seems like almost everything requires a subscription!!! I couldn't even do the sunny 1 minute breathing exercise more than once... That seems like the most basic thing, and yet it's trying to force me to pay to use it more than one time 😞😞😞

    By Native Ridah
    I was using the app for the free courses, The Basics, while I learn the practice. And now they're locked suddenly and there is no more free content at all. I was learning a lot with those courses and feel like they need to be free. As a new meditator, I don't want to purchase the whole library when I'm just a beginner. I planned on purchasing later as I progressed, but now I'll have to find a new app to practice on... :(

    I got this through work but not enjoying it. Its very Americanised. I also find it glitchy. Tonight I listened to the Sleep Inn story and after 10 minutes it reset itself back to the beginning of the session. I actually find this app adds to stress because it's irritating to use. Which defeats the object. I've tried for a month but I realise I'm not getting much relaxation or mindfulness from using it. Funny it did an update today too. If I uninstall it I won't download it again. Disappointing

    Hi, to whom it may concern, I used to have a trail subscription for free from headspace due to the fact I was rewarded a 3 month trail from a online catch card from Vodafone. (cellular network provider) i downloaded the app and i unsubscried/deleted the app afterwards because I did want to pay for the subscription in the future. I just recently received notification, that €59 has been debit ordered from account which I did not give authorisation to do so, i unsubscried from the app longntime ago

    Too expensive. There isn't a single track, at least not that I could find, that didn't have the ridiculous $13 a month price tag - especially when other apps do the same thing. Don't get fooled by "free to use." Rainday antiques was the only free one, and suddenly it's locked. Uninstalling because of this.
  • If only... Dec 29, 2018

    By Studying for life
    At first I really loved this app and I didn't miss that some of the sessions we'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'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't meditate or sleep😔 if you have enough money to subscribe to this app, good for you because it's very nice and will help you a lot but if you can't subscribe, don't get your hopes up with this app. I just really wish it had more features for people who can't subscribe because in the end it leaves no options if you can't. If it had more options, I would be giving them at most four stars but because the don't, they're left with one. I really do wish I could keep this app but right now it's just taking up space😖
