When is the last time you did absolutely nothing for 10 whole minutes? Not texting, talking or even thinking? Mindfulness expert Andy Puddicombe describes the transformative power of doing just that: Refreshing your mind for 10 minutes a day, simply by being mindful and experiencing the present moment. (No need for incense or sitting in strange positions.)

I always wished to be able to turn my ears off sometimes like closing (turning off) the eyes, but later learned the reason why we can't turn ears off is related to safety. But why can't we turn mind off as easy as closing eyes?? I guess Andy offers a tool. I really need to get this tool. Thanks Andy.
I actually like to make the atmosphere like it is a big deal, sort of organizing the place where I meditate, by putting some candles in the floor, maybe incense sometimes. I know it is not obligatory but it helps me to kinda make it my own moment. I hope it is still ok
meditation is doing something if you focus your mind on nothing your mind is focused clearing the mind takes the work of the mind which could becomes very very dangerous, this is because meditation is a spiritual act and not physical. So In order to meditate properly, a person needs to be free from distractions, alone with his thoughts, so to speak. Isaac, for example, went out walking alone in the early evening to meditate, possibly about his coming marriage to Rebekah. (Ge 24:63) It was during the solitude of the night watches that the psalmist meditated on the greatness of his Grand Creator. (Ps 63:6) The meditations of the heart should be focused on beneficial things, on Jehovah’s splendor and activities, on things pleasing to him (Ps 19:14; 49:3; 77:12; 143:5; Php 4:8), and not on the devices of the wicked.—Pr 24:1, 2.
If Buddha were here he would've be very happy to see how greatly some one has presented what he though all the way back to 2000 years ago and I think this is what we often consider as greatness that we are valuing the ideals that someone has gave such a mind boggling years ago.

Getting into the facts Of meditation process technology of Buddhism and qigong where rarely known
GiggitySam Entz there are hundreds of random resources online, talking about meditation. anyone is free to use those if they want.
people choose headspace because it's clear, step by step, easy to follow and aesthetically pleasing.
also i disagree that meditation is not for everybody. that's like saying breathing and smiling is not for everybody. meditation is a basic wellbeing tool like exercise, which any human with a functioning brain who can breathe is capable of doing. makes no sense not to once you learn all the benefits for your brain.
your skepticism is quite misplaced here.
Hey everyone, hope you are all having a peacefull and awesome day, be sure to check out Andy's new app called HeadSpace. It is simply amazing and truly educational which can help change your life for the better :)
Stay blessed earthlings
Just like Homer Simpson this mans appeal lies in the fact that his head is so bald and shiny it becomes hypnotic...I cant help but follow the contours of those light glimmers as he turns his magnificent dome. Seriously though good advice, mindfulness and meditation should really be taught in every school
Has anyone else had no luck with mindfulness? I've been doing it twice a day for almost a year and in this time I've only become more anxious. Not that mindfulness is making things worse or anything like that, but just does it not work for everyone?
So basically meditation trains the brain not to over think things.
He was able to juggle like that because he wasn't worrying about his hands being there. Instead just relying on the balls to be there. All he has to do is remember a pattern and a time frame. Freeing his mind to be able to communicate with the audience?
