From the Publisher

This title was previously published as Get Some Headspace: How Mindfulness Can Change Your Life in Ten Minutes a Day. Andy Puddicombe, a former Buddhist monk, the Voice of Headspace, and the UK's foremost mindfulness expert, is on a mission: to get people to take 10 minutes out of their day to sit in the here and now.

Like his readers and students, Andy began his own meditation practice as a normal, busy person with everyday concerns, and he has since designed a program of mindfulness and guided meditation that fits neatly into a jam-packed daily routine-proving that just 10 minutes a day can make a world of difference.

Accessible and portable, The Headspace Guide to Meditation and Mindfulness offers simple but powerful meditation techniques that positively impact every area of physical and mental health: from productivity and focus, to stress and anxiety relief, sleep, weight-loss, personal relationships...the benefits are limitless. The result? More headspace, less stress. Andy brings this ancient practice into the modern world, tailor made for the most time starved among us.

    Simple Moves Can Lead to a Less Stressed-out You

    STRESS IS A MODERN MENTAL BOGEYMAN that keeps half of U.S. adults up at night, according to a recent survey from the American Psychological Association. And many people don’t do anything to try to fight it. That’s bad news because stress takes a measurable physical toll on the body: it’s linked to a higher risk of heart attack and stroke, plus a general sense of malaise. But there’s fresh evidence that simple mindfulness practices—and no, that doesn’t have to mean sitting cross-legged in meditation—can help ease anxiety. In a new study to be published in the journal Psychiatry Research, peop

    Stress Less About Money

    THE MONEY LINK: In surveys, Americans cite money and work as the top causes of stress (see below). And in what can be a vicious cycle, stress can hurt your job performance: The more anxious you are, the more distracted and ill-prepared you are at work. A recent global survey by Willis Towers Watson linked higher stress to higher absenteeism. And workers who worried about their finances reported being distracted 12.4 days a year—what’s called “presenteeism”—vs. 8.6 days for their more relaxed peers. Stress can also trigger other unhealthy (and potentially costly) behaviors, including smoking,
