From the Publisher

As a former Buddhist monk with over 10 years of teaching experience, Andy Puddicombe has been acknowledged as the UK's foremost mindfulness meditation expert. Like his readers and students, he 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. Simple exercises, stories and techniques culled from Andy's years of experience will help anyone calm the chatter in their minds. The result? More headspace, less stress.

Get Some Headspace also brings us the extraordinary science behind this seemingly simple cure-all. This book and practice will help readers positively impact every area of their physical and mental health through mindfulness, from productivity and focus, to stress and anxiety relief, sleep, weight-loss, personal relationships...and the list goes on and on.

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,
