About Headspace

It’s hard to talk about Headspace without talking about Andy Puddicombe. So let’s start there. In his early twenties, Andy cut his Sports Science degree short to become a Buddhist monk. For over 10 years, his meditation training took him across the world to Nepal, India, Burma, Thailand, Australia and Russia. Eventually, he was ordained at a Tibetan monastery in the Indian Himalayas.

After completing his monastic commitment, Andy returned to the UK with the huge-yet-simple goal of teaching meditation and mindfulness to as many people as possible. To demystify the mystical, Andy set up a meditation consultancy and began working with politicians, athletes (that sports science background finally came in handy), and business leaders.

That’s when Andy met Rich Pierson, who needed help dealing with the stress of the advertising world. Before long, Andy and Rich were skill-swapping meditation for business advice. That’s when Headspace was born.

Headspace was officially launched in 2010 as an events company, but attendees wanted to take what they learned home with them. Andy, Rich, and a small team decided to make Andy’s techniques available online so more people could experience thebenefits of meditation anytime, anywhere. And that blossomed into the Headspace app you see today:guided meditations, animations, articles and videos, all in the distinct Headspace style.

Choose a continuous movement that keeps you moving quickly but efficiently. If you find yourself having to stop before the minute is over, you may need to adjust your pace. This could include jumping jacks, high knees, dance, butt kicks, step ups, running if you have a treadmill or biking if you have a stationary bike. You could also choose to do these workouts outside and run up and down stairs, do sprints, etc.
