I Don’t Want it to End!

When we experience something that we enjoy, we want to hold onto it tightly and this can actually take us away from experiencing the joy of it. When we learn to let go of thoughts or feelings about things ending, we can be more present with the experience as it is.

04/05/224m 29s

You Are Exactly Where You Are Supposed To Be

There really are so many moments in life that can go differently from what we expect. When we feel stuck in a difficult situation, mindfulness can help us cope with the way we react to the hardships in our lives.If you feel like talking to someone would help, consider reaching out or talking to a healthcare professional. If you are in a relationship that you feel you can’t get out of, a resource to also consider is thehotline.org.

We Don’t Know Everyone’s Story

When the people around us seem difficult — especially those we don’t know — it can be easy to make judgments about them. But there is so much more than meets the eye. Remembering that we don’t know everyone’s story frees us from assumptions, and opens the door to accepting others as they are.If you feel like you are struggling, many people benefit from and find it healing to accept counseling or other formal support. If you think such support might be helpful for you, please reach out to a healthcare professional. There is no shame in seeking help. And of course, look to friends and family where you can, knowing there might be many others around you who are also struggling.

Our Thoughts Are Not the Truth

18/04/224m 23s

We Don’t Know Our True Limits

How many times have you been in a situation where you had to try something new and thought, “I can’t do that”? The truth is, we don't actually know what we’re capable of until we are sometimes forced to try it out. 
15/04/223m 56s

Great Expectations

The dialogue we have internally with ourselves can be the opposite of what happens in reality. And if our experience does not match our expectations, it can create a lot of shame, resentment, and anger. Sometimes having a communication strategy can be helpful to make expectations clear, and as a result, may bring us closer to our loved ones.

We’re living in times that feel extraordinarily heavy. It might feel strange to focus on ourselves, especially if we feel that we are not suffering in the same way as others. But truly the only way we can show compassion to others is if we first understand our own pain and suffering.

When we listen to someone, we often hope they say the right thing or think about our response. By practicing deep listening, we can hear important details from others, and ourselves, that often go unnoticed. 
17/03/223m 15s

Just like me

When we’re in conflict with someone, it’s easy for our emotions to take over and create a divide: Us vs. Them. But the more we hold on to that conflict, the stronger it grows and weighs us down. By remembering, “this person is like me,” we can begin to let go of negative feelings.

The Wisdom of Our Bodies

Our bodies do so much for us. With mindfulness, we gain awareness of the body and can better connect to how we feel and experience life.
11/03/223m 21s

Loneliness vs. Rejection

As humans, we’re wired for connection, so rejection can really sting. When rejections happen, we can use mindfulness to remember that we are not alone.

Brick by Brick

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you think about a huge task that’s been put in front of you. But if you focus on the small things to get a big result, the road ahead looks much less daunting.You can find Will Smith’s memoir, “Will,” here.

Negativity Bias

Psychologists have found that negative events or happenings have a greater impact on us than positive ones do. But it’s possible to change that by repeatedly looking out for the goodness in life.

Best ‘Me’

We may not be able to change our external circumstances like the pandemic or a monotonous schedule, but we can change how we choose to face challenging situations.You can find “The Seven Levels of Intimacy: The Art of Loving and the Joy of Being Loved” by Matthew Kelly here..

The Wisdom of Anger

Anger can be a messenger, revealing our intrinsic desires to be heard, seen, and understood. We can use meditation and mindfulness to allow anger to move through us, instead of being stuck in it.
04/03/223m 36s

The Wisdom of Fear

Fear is an evolutionary process, designed to keep us safe. However, what we’ve learned to fear in modern times has changed immensely. We can look to mindfulness to help us work with our fear, instead of being shaken by its presence.
03/03/223m 12s

The Wisdom of Sadness

When we’re able to approach sadness with a sense of mindfulness and compassion, we can break free from its grips and learn to be in harmony with it, as if it’s a life-long friend.* *Please note: The story shared in this episode discusses child loss, so for those sensitive to this topic, please listen at your own discretion. If you are looking for support after experiencing child loss, here are some resources.

The Wisdom of Insecurity

If we can remember how precious we are, and how precious each and every moment is, our sense of inadequacy begins to dissolve.
01/03/223m 35s

The Wisdom of Challenging Emotions

Sometimes we need to take a step back from difficult emotions like sadness, anger, and fear, and look at them from a different perspective. By doing that, we can witness them without becoming attached to their stories.

Radio Headspace Rewind: You Were Born With A Destiny

Is there a part of you that you’ve been previously shamed for? Your name, your heritage, and personal expression are something to be proud of, instead of something to run away from. Embracing these things can help lead us to our destinies in life.
18/02/224m 20s

Radio Headspace Rewind: Past, Present, Future You

The only constant in life is change. And some of us embrace it more than others — especially when we think about how we as people are changing all the time. Today, dig up some old photos, and appreciate the you that you used to be! 
17/02/224m 21s

Radio Headspace Rewind: 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.
16/02/224m 28s

Radio Headspace Rewind: 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.
15/02/224m 6s

Radio Headspace Rewind: 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.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Not So Different

As human beings, we are all connected to one another in our feelings, through nature, and so much more. Today, we are reminded how we are not alone and also not so different from one another.The book where trees talk to each other underground is called Underland by Robert Macfarlane
10/02/223m 39s

Radio Headspace Rewind: The Power of Music

09/02/224m 19s

Radio Headspace Rewind: Letting Go of Identities

 We are continually modifying behaviors based on the signals we are getting from outside influences.

Learn to reset the mind and let go of these unhealthy tendencies. 
08/02/223m 55s

Radio Headspace Rewind: The Value of Repetition

Repetition is valuable in meditation. By repeating the same actions, we are able to train the mind and find comfort in the practice. Inversely, each moment and each breath is also different from the last, making each practice a new experience.Practice with Headspace.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Facing Challenges

In today’s podcast, we discuss why we avoid challenges and how facing them can be beneficial in our lives.
31/01/223m 28s

Reacting vs Responding

We are only humans, and humans experience strong emotions. No matter how long you’ve been practicing meditation, you will always experience strong feelings. Meditation simply helps us process these emotions and shift to a mindful space where we can better respond. 
28/01/224m 17s

Noticing the Signs

When figuring out your life’s purpose, two concepts come to mind: patience and observation. By having patience, you’re allowing things to develop in their own time and learning to enjoy the journey. By observing life, you’re opening yourself to the present moment and noticing the signs that will guide you to your purpose. And what helps with patience and observation? Meditation.
27/01/223m 52s

Mental Health and Racism

Racist encounters, directly or indirectly, can cause strong emotions and trauma. Daily meditation can help lessen the intensity of these feelings and help build stress resilience, but if you’re just beginning your meditation journey, you may need more support. Pay attention to your body if you’re holding onto racial trauma, and seek out a therapist or counselor if you need to.
26/01/224m 56s

The Pleasant Events Calendar

In life, we encounter certain people, places, or things that bring us joy. Maybe it’s a person who raises your mood with their positive energy, or a daily activity that makes you feel good. We encourage you to intentionally give attention to all the pleasant things around you and reflect on how they make you feel. Try it out! You’ll start to notice all the positive things in your life.
25/01/224m 58s

Authentic Relationships

Sometimes making friends can be easy, and sometimes it’s hard. Desiring connection and deep interpersonal relationships makes us human, but remember to avoid compromising our authentic self for someone else. Forcing relationships rarely work, so take time to learn when potential connections can be made and cultivate them. 
24/01/224m 45s

Mindfulness and Grief

There’s been a tremendous amount of loss during the pandemic. Loss of loved ones and the way we live our lives. It’s okay to feel what you’re feeling. The pandemic has taken a toll on us all, so remember to be gentle with yourself. 
21/01/224m 13s

Wellness in the Workplace

Not all workplaces are the same. Some work environments can be toxic, leading workers to feel pressure or anxiety. A way to counter an unhealthy workplace is by promoting wellness at your job. We all have to work, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could do so in a happy and healthy environment?
20/01/224m 31s

A Dichotomous Situation

We’d like to believe that things are always either black or white, but that’s simply not the case with emotions. Having conflicting emotions all at once can be confusing, but it’s perfectly okay to sit with our different emotions and find ourselves within that gray space. 
19/01/224m 47s

It Takes Time

It’s common to feel like you aren’t making visible progress in your meditation practice. We often like to see results right away, but meditation is actually something you grow with over time. When you hit this learning plateau, take time to reflect on why you started meditating in the first place and what progress looks to you.
18/01/223m 56s

Meditation is a Practice

We can’t avoid hard times. In moments of stress, you can always lean on your meditation practice and use intention-setting to guide your decisions on how to respond to challenging situations. Hardships are inevitable, but we can equip ourselves with the awareness to find solutions in the present moment. 
17/01/224m 35s

Everyone is Different

Everyone deals with issues differently and in their own way. A particular solution might work for one person, but it might not be appropriate for another. And that’s totally okay. Mindfulness encourages us to notice what is happening in the present moment and adapt to our needs. Try to reflect on what works for you and what doesn’t.
14/01/224m 2s

Leading by Example

We can sometimes underestimate our influence on the people around us — positive and negative. As you begin your meditation journey, think about how your mindfulness practice will affect your nearest and dearest. You might notice a shift in your personal relationships. 
13/01/224m 53s

The Healing Power of Laughter

There are moments in life that require serious attention. But sometimes we get so caught up in this attitude that we forget to enjoy the present. Try not to take life so seriously and learn how to make space for laughter. You might be surprised at how good it can feel to smile.
12/01/225m 43s

New Beginnings

Practicing a “beginner’s mind” asks us to drop expectations and other assumptions we formed through past experiences. Essentially, approach every moment as if we’re experiencing it for the very first time. Try it out and apply a “beginner’s mind” to every area of your life. 
11/01/224m 15s

Lost in Thought

Holding on to negative or even positive experiences can often lead us to feel stuck. When ruminating on these thoughts or experiences, we’re closing ourselves off from the present moment. In situations like these, it’s best to practice mindfulness and gently let go of the thoughts we’re holding onto and bring ourselves back to the present moment. 
10/01/225m 9s

Non-Striving Attitude

When fixated on the end goal, we often lose sight of the present moment. We can easily get wrapped up in our ambitions, which can cause stress, anxiety, and depression in our lives. How about we appreciate the present and the journey we’re on? As we wrap up this week, remember that all of the concepts we learned so far are interrelated: non-judging, patience, acceptance, trust, and non-striving.
07/01/224m 11s

Trust Yourself

Learn to listen and trust your inner voice. It’s easy to fall into a space of judgment when deciding if you should follow your intuition or not. Fears of making mistakes arise, but remember that mistakes are just lessons learned. It takes time to learn to trust yourself, and you can cultivate this trust through meditation. 
06/01/224m 59s

Accept Where You Are

When deciding to make a change in your life, it’s best to first accept where you're at in the present moment. You don't have to like where you are, but there's a difference between not liking something and harshly judging something. Learning this distinction is crucial when trying to make meaningful changes in your life.
05/01/223m 40s

Patience Takes Practice

In today’s world, we expect everything in an instant, including accomplishing our New Year’s resolutions. We’re so used to immediate gratification that practicing patience can feel uneasy. Don’t be afraid to let things unfold in their own time. 
04/01/223m 59s

New Year, New Me

Sticking to New Year’s resolutions is tough. Oftentimes we set unrealistic expectations and then judge ourselves for not meeting them. But what if we used mindfulness to help us accomplish our goals? For the next eight days, Kessonga will focus on one of eight concepts of mindfulness and discuss how incorporating these practices can help us successfully execute our goals.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Taking It All In

Radio Headspace Rewind: Anticipation of Expectations

We move through life making choices with anticipation for an expected result. Sometimes, this can lead to disappointment that stops us from living in the moment and letting life just be what it is. Learn to feel comfortable with letting go of your anticipations. 
27/12/215m 9s

Radio Headspace Rewind: In Defense of Effort

There may be someone who is capable of making something you love look effortless. And when we’re beginning to learn something new, we can get discouraged by the amount of effort we have to put in. This is common in learning. Don’t judge your progress by someone else’s mastery.
24/12/215m 8s

Radio Headspace Rewind: Pics or It Didn’t Happen?

Think of the last event you went to. Now recall if everyone had their phones out. How much of our experiences are actually being experienced in the moment, and how often are we trying to capture moments to share at some future date? It’s the tension of all great photography — moments can only be captured when we are fully present, but by capturing them we disrupt the present. 
23/12/214m 1s

Radio Headspace Rewind: The Weaponization Of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a non-judgmental 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 judgment. 
22/12/214m 2s

Radio Headspace Rewind: Take It Offline

What happens when you want to go off the Headspace app and be more spiritual in the world? This was a new one for us. But the essence of the mind is the same in all scenarios, spiritual or not. The goal is to be present. That’s it.

Radio Headspace Rewind: _____ Is My Meditation

Radio Headspace Rewind: 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.

10/12/214m 43s

Radio Headspace Rewind: 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. 
09/12/212m 50s

Radio Headspace Rewind: 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.
08/12/213m 43s

Radio Headspace Rewind: 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. 
07/12/214m 37s

Radio Headspace Rewind: 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.

The Vortex

Many of us have a drive to perfect everything. From work to social engagements, and even our loved ones, we strive to constantly improve. And of course, improvement is good, but sometimes we need to think of the cost. In this vortex of self-improvement, we can lose sight of how beautiful we, and those around us, already are.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Connection Means Community

There are studies that show humans are feeling lonelier and more isolated than ever before. And while it may feel like it's a great thing to "respect each other's Headspace" and privacy, someone may be waiting for you to reach out to connect. If you're feeling lonely, or suspect someone you know may be, send them a message or give them a call today. It may make you both feel a little more connected, and a little less lonely.

From Reaction to Response

Stress isn’t inherently good or bad, it’s simply a natural response to something that feels threatening.
