Headspace

10-27_head_space.png

When was the last time you stopped for a few minutes to reflect on the present moment? Not the thing you screwed up yesterday, or the meeting you’re worried about tomorrow, but the here and now. Meditation and mindfulness expert Andy Puddicombe says those few minutes are key to decreased anxiety, better sleep, and improved focus. He’s the creator of a popular app that guides users through meditation, and he joins Doug to talk about finding “Headspace” in your life. (Rebroadcast)

Andy Puddicombe is a meditation and mindfulness expert and co-founder of Headspace. He's also the author of Get Some Headspace: How Mindfulness Can Change Your Life in Ten Minutes a Day [Indiebound|Amazon], The Headspace Guide to Mindful Eating [Amazon] and The Headspace Guide to a Mindful Pregnancy [Amazon]
