By Headspace Studios

Join us every weekday morning to take a few moments to step out of the internal chatter and external noise. We'll pause and reflect to consider what brings us together in this shared human condition and how we can live a life that best reflects our limitless potential.

Episodes

Rough Drafts and Revisions

Every time we think we’ve arrived somewhere, life has a way of changing our destination. It’s a constant work in progress, even when it feels like a decision or mistake we made is final. When we embrace the idea that nothing is final, we give ourselves the grace to begin again, no matter what happened before. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Everything’s Been Done Before

Have you heard the saying “everything has been done before”? That may be true, but it hasn’t been done by you! The idea that nothing is original can come up when we’re scared of trying something new, but remember, as long as you bring your authentic self to the experience, it will feel totally unique.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Each Step Counts

We love how the wellness community connects online, and how much it’s grown! But it’s easy to see everyone’s wellness breakthroughs and ‘healing highlights’ on social media, and think that’s all wellness should be. Breakthroughs are amazing, but every step you take every single day counts. Today, think about where you were a year ago and celebrate just how far you’ve come.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Lead by Being

When you’re on your own path, it can cause some friction in your interpersonal relationships — especially if you’re on a new health and wellness journey that no one else in your family wants to come on with you. It can be tempting to try to push other people onto a healthier path, but the best way to convince people to follow is to be an example. Learn more about your ad choices.

The Dream You’re Already Living

Think back to your life a year ago. Chances are, you’re living in ways you may have only dreamed of. In the pursuit of our dreams, we often get caught up in the day-to-day struggle and forget how far we’ve come. Today, remember how far you’ve already come, and celebrate.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Change is a Good Thing

We’ve all heard the axiom, the only constant is change. Many of us ‘fear’ change, because we’ve learned to associate change as a process to make up for what we lack, instead of changing with compassion and care. When we approach change with compassion, the process of changing becomes a dance instead of a weight looming overhead.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

No More Bad Days

Question for you: Did you really have a bad day, or did you have a bad moment that clouded everything else? If we’re not careful, that bad ‘day’ can creep into a bad week, or month, or year! Practice accepting things as they are — not how you wish they would be — and see if that doesn’t help you move on faster from bad moments. Learn more about your ad choices.

Why You Should Stop Complaining

We’ve all heard that complaining isn’t good for your mood,  but it’s also unhealthy for the body. It can actually damage your brain! Today, when the urge to complain arises, we invite you to try to reframe your reaction into something healthier — like gratitude — instead. Learn more about your ad choices.

Acting in Love

Love has many meanings and takes many forms. Many times the ways we act in love, it’s out of convenience. It can be transactional, or something we do out of obligation. But what would happen if we applied mindfulness to love, and attempt to act in love in a way that feels fully present in our mind and body? Try it today. Learn more about your ad choices.

Set Boundaries For Yourself

In all interpersonal relationships, boundaries aren’t just common sense, they are healthy. Boundaries can be hard to set, but they’re a form of self-protection and self-care. Remember, they’re not there to keep others out, they’re there to keep you safer and happier.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Paths to Personal Fulfillment

Very often, the dreams we have for ourselves are very different from the dreams that our loved ones may have for us. That can create tension in the relationship, but remember, these people often have the best intentions. Still, you must find your own path. What is best for you is up to you, and no one else.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Everyone’s a Teacher

Guidance can come from anywhere — and very often from places we didn’t expect, or even want. But anyone can be a teacher if you are willing to listen to them. It’s often the people who we underestimate that can teach us the most — if we let them. Keep your mind open, and listen to what guidance is coming your way.  Want Dora’s entire breakup collection?

Do You Really See Them?

When we talk about creating space in the mind in meditation, we are talking about allowing thoughts and feelings to breathe. This allows us perspective on a situation or pattern in our own lives. But when we do this for ourselves, we are also practicing doing this for other people. When we create space, we can see others for who they are. Not how we want them to be.

Keep Your Friends Close, and Demons Closer …

There’s a thought in Eastern philosophy that a ‘demon’ isn’t a monster. It’s anything that hinders us from our liberation. These can be things that live within us. Today, instead of meeting your demons with judgment or attempts to repress, try to approach them with compassion and see how that makes you feel. Learn more about your ad choices.

You Were Born With a Destiny

Is there a part of you that you’ve been previously shamed for? Maybe it’s your name, your heritage, and personal expression are something to be proud of, instead of something to run away from.

Past, Present, Future You

Your Reticular Activating System

All of the sensory information we receive every single day is filtered by one part of the brain: the reticular activating system, or RAS. We can encourage the RAS, and make new connections in our brain, by being more intentional with our focus. Today, focus on the good things to forge more positive connections.

Don’t Forget to Breathe

How is your breathing? Very often, when we get stressed or overwhelmed, we can lose track of our breath. Our breath is what guides us. Focus on it to check in with yourself, and to return to the present moment. Each breath holds a sense of possibility. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Stay Strong

When you express a negative emotion, how often are you told to “be positive” or “stay strong”? Today, we want to reframe how you think about strength. To be human is to experience the full range of the human experiences, so the next time you think to choose stoic strength over tears, consider allowing yourself to feel what comes natural to you.

From Headspace Studios, we wish you a warm welcome to Sunday afternoons and to that creeping feeling of anxiety that seems to pop up around that time.

Listen to Your Body

There is a lot of wellness advice out there — what to eat, when to eat it, how to exercise, what ‘healthy’ looks like. But what much of this advice fails to mention is that none of it matters if it doesn't feel good to you. Let’s practice being mindful of what your body is telling you.

Let’s Talk About Kindness

It’s easy to be kind when you’re in a good mood, but opportunities to be kind can arise at any time. It’s those moments when we have to deliberately choose kindness that can ultimately result in more happiness, than moments when we already feel kind. Learn more about your ad choices.

One Way to Eat A Raisin

How often do we go to do something, and finish the task with no recollection of it at all? This is because we don’t have present-moment awareness. But we can cultivate this skill through mindfulness. Consider practicing this weekend with a snack — it doesn’t have to be a raisin! Have a good weekend, everyone! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Be Honest, Not Judgmental

While self-evaluation is healthy for self-improvement, it is often easy to confuse honesty with criticism. The latter comes from a place of judgment, which we should work to avoid. So today, let’s practice being honest with ourselves minus the judgment, and see how this can improve our well-being. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

In the same way, our intuition is always there to guide us. That instinctive voice always knows the right way, but sometimes we don’t listen.

Reduce Stress, Increase Resiliency

There’s a common misconception that mindfulness can reduce stress. What mindfulness actually does is increase your stress resiliency, which is how we respond to stressors in our environment. Stress will never disappear — it’s a part of life — but through meditation and mindfulness, we can learn to control our reactions to it, making our response to stress less extreme. The book Kessonga mentioned is Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn. You can also get a crash course on meditation and mindfulness in Andy’s book, Get Some Headspace.  If you like what you hear, you can spend more time with Kessonga inside of the Headspace app, where he leads a variety of guided meditations and wind downs for sleep.

Make Friends with Fear

Most of us spend a lot of time trying to ignore or limit our interaction with strong negative feelings. Things like fear, sadness, or anger can be scary or painful. But rushing to squash those feelings often leads us to fixate on them, which is the opposite of what we’re trying to do! It’s only by creating space for our feelings that we can move past them.

Make Meditation Your Own

Headspace teachers provide general instructions in each of our meditation and mindfulness sessions that usually work for most people. This does not mean that all guidance works for all people, and we encourage you to be aware of what’s being said, and find what works for you. Your practice is yours, after all! Make it your own.

Walk Your Own Path

Social media is a great way to stay connected and keep up with what others are doing. But make sure you’re keeping up, and not getting caught up. We each walk our own paths.

An Attitude of Gratitude

We talk a lot about staying in the present moment, but that is more than just being aware of what’s going on right now. Today, we’re digging into awareness, but approaching that awareness with a sense of gratitude. This weekend, we challenge you to keep up with your pleasant events and spend a few moments reflecting on the good things happening right now.

Be Gentle with Yourself

There’s a fine line between self-care and indulgent complacency. At the same time, there’s a fine line between self-encouragement and being harsh with ourselves.

We place a lot of value on our physical and mental health. You may even meditate or do yoga.

Radio Headspace Rewind: What’s Real and What’s Not?

A lot of us walk around waiting for something to happen. We can carry that tension in our bodies and minds, constantly on alert, imagining an unpleasant experience. It’s an uncomfortable way to live.

Getting along with other people doesn’t mean constant harmony or even agreement. We don’t have to always like what the people around us do. But we do have to allow people to be exactly who they are.

Often, we think that when conditions are just right we can finally change. We fantasize about solitude and quietly retreating to finally tackle the big issues weighing on our minds. If only we had that peace and quiet, we could do it! But it’s often the input from others that show us exactly where those points of resistance are.

A lot of us are trying to build a sense of order and control amidst the chaos that is our lives right now. Very often, that can look like a very strict daily schedule, a list of books and movies to cross off your queue, or perhaps keeping the home very tidy. It’s good to have order, but being too strict with it means we feel like we’re falling apart when one thing is out of line.

Finding time for yourself may seem like an odd concept — especially if you’re quarantining alone — but it’s easy to get distracted, from being caught up in Zoom calls to binge-watching TV or constantly reading the news. If you’re with others, it’s tempting to look at taking time for yourself as selfish, but in solitude, we can find a way to reconnect with ourselves. And when we go back out into life we can be better for ourselves, and for the people around us.  Want more Andy? Try Headspace today. Learn more about your ad choices.

Ten years after we launched Headspace, we’re launching our first official podcast. Because now, more than ever, there’s so much noise in the world. Most of us don’t know how we approach our own minds, thoughts, or feelings. We can get so caught up in our individual circumstances that we don’t see that we’re all in this together — and that shared unity is a beautiful thing. Tune in to new episodes of Radio Headspace every weekday morning.  Want more Andy? Try Headspace today. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Radical Curiosity

When we greet difficult thoughts and feelings with a sense of interest rather than shutting down, we are welcoming an opportunity to practice curiosity in a way that would lead us to a constructive outcome. This can ultimately add to our toolkit to push through adverse moments.  Want more Sam? Try Headspace today. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Love Reimagined

We all have our own definition of what love is. The feeling of love is a tangible, palpable emotion that is always evolving and changing to fit into the various spaces we allow for it. A trait of love is the presence of positivity that resonates throughout the experience. Want more Sam? Try Headspace today. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Integrating Our Experiences

Take a moment to think about what integration really means, as it is the opposite of feeling scattered or disassociated. When we accept our experiences for what they are rather than ignoring or rejecting them, this is when we integrate our experiences into the fabric of who we are as individuals. Want more Sam?

Practice Being Still

One of the biggest obstacles to meditation is the restlessness that we feel when we are attempting to do nothing. When we give in to every urge, it’s hard to reach deeper levels of concentration, or to give ourselves a chance to see how fleeting those feelings can be.  Want more Sam? Try Headspace today.

Brain Games

In meditation, we spend a great deal of time observing our thoughts and feelings with the intention of entering into a moment of ease. As you grow in the practice  of meditation, you start to understand that the thoughts in our minds don’t go away — instead, we train our brains to quiet them down.  Want more Sam?

The Stories of Our Minds

Our minds are uncomfortable with uncertainty, so we innately try to predict the future to protect ourselves from disappointment.

Mindfulness is a non-judgemental state, but when we have an intellectual understanding of mindfulness, but not the experiential knowledge, we can use it to judge others. Today, focus on your experiences to empathize and be a source of compassion, not judgement. This week, Radio Headspace is sponsored by The Michelle Obama Podcast. Listen exclusively on Spotify.

You vs. You

If you were to line a bunch of babies up, you’d notice that there’s a difference in their nature. We’re born with these qualities. But our personalities develop over time, with our experiences. Don’t get so caught up in these surface level traits that you don’t notice who you really are. This week, Radio Headspace is sponsored by The Michelle Obama Podcast. Listen exclusively on Spotify.

Are You Bored?

“Boredom” has become something negative. We see it as a condition of our lives that we must change. We search for stimulation and distraction, but by doing that, we are essentially saying that this moment is not enough. The next time you feel bored, pause and examine it. You may find that you’re never bored again. This week, Radio Headspace is sponsored by The Michelle Obama Podcast. Listen free at Spotify.com/MichelleObama Learn more about your ad choices.

Big Mind, Small Mind

Today we’re talking about an idea that comes from the Zen tradition. There are two ways of looking at the world: up high, like the view an eagle might have flying over the mountains, and up close, as if you were noticing every grain of sand. The two are vastly different - so how can we do both? This week, Radio Headspace is brought to you by The Michelle Obama Podcast.

Let's Continue the Conversation

The mind and body are not separate entities. Maybe you walk faster when you’re angry or say something you don’t mean when you’re flustered.

The End of a Feeling

We’re excellent at noticing when we start to feel angry, or sad, or happy, but when’s the last time you noticed when a mood ended or changed? Remember, emotion is temporary, and feeling is finite. The more often we notice the end of a feeling that challenges us, the easier we can find a place of peace and a calm mind. This week, Radio Headspace is sponsored by Indeed.

Light vs. Warmth

Mindfulness is good for many things, but we tend to look at it differently depending on where we’ve learned it. Western mindfulness centers around awareness and Eastern mindfulness is more about compassion. But like the sun, both emit light and warmth, we need both awareness and compassion to truly live mindfully.    This week, Radio Headspace is sponsored by Indeed.

On Mindful Eating

One of the things we’ve been asked the most lately is about our eating habits during lockdown. It seems that being within arm’s reach of the fridge amplifies a lot of thoughts about food, and often, we engage in an internal battle about that thought. The next time thoughts about food or eating habits arise, try to notice it, acknowledge it, and act appropriately — not react emotionally.

We the People

It’s easy to get frustrated by other people, and in our frustration, we forget that we are the people. We have a responsibility to share the space that we’re in. Next time you find yourself frustrated, in traffic for example, remember that you are part of the whole, and see if a little empathy arises.  This week, Radio Headspace is brought to you by Changing The Game.

Don’t Scratch The Itch

Itches have a way of taking over the body. It can be all we think about, and we often scratch and scratch with little relief. This is common with physical discomfort. Whenever we notice a twinge we immediately go to change it. But what if you sat with it for a moment instead? Explore sitting with discomfort and see what happens.

Embracing the Things We Don’t Like

If Enlightenment Happens, You Won’t Miss It

We get a lot of questions about journaling during a meditation. A lot of thoughts pop up during meditation — they could be creative or insightful. And we may want to remember them. But stopping your meditation to write things down changes the nature of the exercise and may even create more tension. Try to resist this urge.

Having Scary Thoughts

Sometimes, thoughts that really scare us can arise. And if there is the chance of immediate harm for you or someone around you, please seek medical attention as quickly as possible. But for other scary thoughts, we tend to push them down. We judge them and judge ourselves from having them. But we don’t have to. It’s our job to just witness the mind as it is.
