    the stuff on this app is so amazing, the sleepcasts are super helpful for me. but, literally everything requires a subscription. there’s only like 2 or 3 sleepcasts that are free to use, same thing w the anxiety stuff. this stuff is sooo helpful but people can’t even use it without having to pay so much. i understand that you guys need to make some $$$, but maybe try to have more free stuff on there or use ads instead of expensive subscriptions. idk. it was just kind of a let down when i downloaded the app expecting to have a bunch of stuff to help w anxiety and sleep but only having very few options without pay. sorry.
  • Solid overall, AND could use some variety

    I have been using the paid version of Headspace for over a year now, and am overall pretty satisfied with the app. It’s excellent as an intro to the core concepts and techniques within mindfulness, with helpful short videos and support audio recordings that address various obstacles to meditation and applied mindfulness practice. However, most users will eventually note the formulaic and somewhat repetitive nature of the various “lesson packs” that cover a range of topics from productivity at work to dealing with cancer. The basic formula is this - Andy talks for 1.5min regarding whatever the concept is, followed by a basic body scan, emotional awareness, and breath counting tools. The latter comprises 60-70% of the selected meditation time (typically 3,5,10,15, or 20min). Literally ALL the packs seem to follow this formula. Dealing with anxiety? Andy talks for 1.5min, then sit. Wanting to increase focus? Andy talks for 1.5min, then sit. Wanting to learn how to manage anger more effectively? Andy talks for 1.5min, then sit. It gets pretty unengaging after a while, honestly. Now, mindfulness and meditation aren’t supposed to “entertain” us, but it would be fantastically helpful if they introduced a variety of different techniques, like self-compassion meditations, a greater variety of guided visualizations, mantras, mindfulness of thoughts, and in-depth body scans. Plus, these techniques should be woven into the meditation proper, instead of simply being mentioned by Andy in his calm and friendly 1.5min monologue, followed by the exact same thing ever time. If these techniques indeed are in the offered selection, they have managed to completely evade me, and thus I apologize of I just never found them. Overall, I’d recommend this app to people who are just getting started, or are still fairly new to mindfulness. More experienced meditators may become somewhat bored with the platform and seek out greater depth and variety. I am grateful to Headspace for deepening my mindfulness practice.

    at first i thought that this would be THE meditation app for me but because of the pricing i will most likely NEVER subscribe because in middle school you make no money except for your allowance which is currently $12. i get that the prices would be highly for an amazing app but why? just why? the meditation is really helping but now that i’m getting farther into basics it blocked EVERY SINGLE sleep cast. which is SUPER annoying because it really helped me fall asleep. and i used to use sleep score for help with falling asleep but i needed people telling a story/talking which is what sleep cast had matched all my needs: white noise, talking/storytelling. so please just LOWER YOUR PRICES. thanks for your time (if you were reading this).

    Investing in Headspace it’s an investment in my life. It has help me through some of the most difficult times in my life and through it all I have become a very strong person. With the addition of A group meditation offered in the morning in the evening it really makes you feel like part of a community.

    A lot of content. Some hit or miss Please add a female voice for all the meditation. Dude voice just doesn’t help. Also 5 minutes minimum instead of 10.
  • No dark mode and no iPad landscape mode

    This app is so easy and fun to use that it feels like a game when you start. It’s the perfect introduction to a lot of deep topics. It covers topics such as happiness, focus, depression, relationships, and anger to name a few. It helps you have way healthier relationship to your mind and your emotions. Such a worthwhile investment, this is amazing.
