To celebrate Eve’s 100th Radio Headspace episode, this week, she’s sharing 5 she really enjoyed writing, and tells us how they came together. Today is all about being present.

There really are so many moments in life that can go differently from what we expect. When we feel stuck in a difficult situation, mindfulness can help us cope with the way we react to the hardships in our lives.

If you feel like talking to someone would help, consider reaching out or talking to a healthcare professional. If you are in a relationship that you feel you can’t get out of, a resource to also consider is thehotline.org

We Don’t Know Everyone’s Story
00:04:24

When the people around us seem difficult — especially those we don’t know — it can be easy to make judgments about them. But there is so much more than meets the eye. Remembering that we don’t know everyone’s story frees us from assumptions, and opens the door to accepting others as they are.

If you feel like you are struggling, many people benefit from and find it healing to accept counseling or other formal support. If you think such support might be helpful for you, please reach out to a healthcare professional. There is no shame in seeking help. And of course, look to friends and family where you can, knowing there might be many others around you who are also struggling.

Not Knowing
00:03:56

Not knowing can feel deeply uncomfortable. But it can also open us up to new possibilities and discoveries. Thinking we know all the answers can really limit our perspectives.

Our Thoughts Are Not the Truth
00:04:23

Our thoughts are not always the truth, and sometimes, we can even distort what’s really happening. And if we are anxious about a situation, it can be easy to catastrophize.  Meditation can help us to approach our thoughts in a more skillful way.

Apr 18, 2022
We Don’t Know Our True Limits
00:03:56

How many times have you been in a situation where you had to try something new and thought, “I can’t do that”? The truth is, we don't actually know what we’re capable of until we are sometimes forced to try it out. 

Apr 15, 2022
Great Expectations
00:04:01

The dialogue we have internally with ourselves can be the opposite of what happens in reality. And if our experience does not match our expectations, it can create a lot of shame, resentment, and anger. Sometimes having a communication strategy can be helpful to make expectations clear, and as a result, may bring us closer to our loved ones.

Cultivating Compassion in Times of Suffering
00:03:45

We’re living in times that feel extraordinarily heavy. It might feel strange to focus on ourselves, especially if we feel that we are not suffering in the same way as others. But truly the only way we can show compassion to others is if we first understand our own pain and suffering.

I See You, Anxiety

Apr 07, 2022
Mindfulness in Everyday Life

I’m Not Looking for Advice
00:03:45

Apr 05, 2022
Going Gently
00:03:58

The past two years have taken a huge toll on our mental and physical health. Practicing mindfulness makes us more aware of what we need as individuals. It also helps us to see that we all struggle, and are part of a shared human experience.

Stay Open

Seeds of Awakening

The Journey to Letting Go
00:03:43

Letting go is a term that’s often used in mindfulness, but putting it into practice takes time. To let go means to be in the here and now, relinquishing any control of what happens next. So what are we holding on to when we’re afraid of letting go? 

Mar 30, 2022
Rebuilding Trust
00:04:05

So much in life is uncertain, and that becomes especially clear when our trust is broken by others. But we can use mindfulness to regain faith and trust in the world around us.

The Art of Gratitude
00:03:57

Cultivating Contentment
00:03:27

Contentment invites us to see things how they are, and be with them as they are. Instead of ignoring how we feel or trying to hold on to a particular feeling, contentment is the awareness and acceptance of life as it is.

Mar 18, 2022
The Art of Listening
00:03:15

When we listen to someone, we often hope they say the right thing or think about our response. By practicing deep listening, we can hear important details from others, and ourselves, that often go unnoticed. 

Mar 17, 2022
Just like me
00:03:52

When we’re in conflict with someone, it’s easy for our emotions to take over and create a divide: Us vs. Them. But the more we hold on to that conflict, the stronger it grows and weighs us down. By remembering, “this person is like me,” we can begin to let go of negative feelings.

Mar 16, 2022
Growing Gratitude for Our Bodies

Loneliness vs. Rejection

Negativity Bias

The Wisdom of Anger
00:03:36

Anger can be a messenger, revealing our intrinsic desires to be heard, seen, and understood. We can use meditation and mindfulness to allow anger to move through us, instead of being stuck in it.

Mar 04, 2022
The Wisdom of Fear
00:03:12

Fear is an evolutionary process, designed to keep us safe. However, what we’ve learned to fear in modern times has changed immensely. We can look to mindfulness to help us work with our fear, instead of being shaken by its presence.

Mar 03, 2022
The Wisdom of Sadness

Radio Headspace Rewind: You Were Born With A Destiny
00:04:20

Is there a part of you that you’ve been previously shamed for? Your name, your heritage, and personal expression are something to be proud of, instead of something to run away from. Embracing these things can help lead us to our destinies in life.

Feb 18, 2022

Radio Headspace Rewind: Your Reticular Activating System
00:04:28

All of the sensory information we receive every single day is filtered by one part of the brain: the reticular activating system, or RAS. We can encourage the RAS, and make new connections in our brain, by being more intentional with our focus. Today, focus on the good things to forge more positive connections.

Feb 16, 2022
Radio Headspace Rewind: Don’t Forget To Breathe
00:04:06

How is your breathing? Very often, when we get stressed or overwhelmed, we can lose track of our breath. Our breath is what guides us. Focus on it to check in with yourself, and to return to the present moment. Each breath holds a sense of possibility.

Feb 15, 2022
Radio Headspace Rewind: Stay Strong
00:04:43

When you express a negative emotion, how often are you told to “be positive” or “stay strong”? 

Today, we want to reframe how you think about strength. To be human is to experience the full range of the human experiences, so the next time you think to choose stoic strength over tears, consider allowing yourself to feel what comes natural to you.

Radio Headspace Rewind: The Value of Repetition
00:04:02

Repetition is valuable in meditation. By repeating the same actions, we are able to train the mind and find comfort in the practice. Inversely, each moment and each breath is also different from the last, making each practice a new experience.

Reacting vs Responding
00:04:17

We are only humans, and humans experience strong emotions. No matter how long you’ve been practicing meditation, you will always experience strong feelings. Meditation simply helps us process these emotions and shift to a mindful space where we can better respond. 

Jan 28, 2022
Noticing the Signs
00:03:52

When figuring out your life’s purpose, two concepts come to mind: patience and observation. By having patience, you’re allowing things to develop in their own time and learning to enjoy the journey. By observing life, you’re opening yourself to the present moment and noticing the signs that will guide you to your purpose. And what helps with patience and observation? Meditation.

Jan 27, 2022
Mental Health and Racism
00:04:56

Racist encounters, directly or indirectly, can cause strong emotions and trauma. Daily meditation can help lessen the intensity of these feelings and help build stress resilience, but if you’re just beginning your meditation journey, you may need more support. Pay attention to your body if you’re holding onto racial trauma, and seek out a therapist or counselor if you need to.

Jan 26, 2022
The Pleasant Events Calendar
00:04:58

In life, we encounter certain people, places, or things that bring us joy. Maybe it’s a person who raises your mood with their positive energy, or a daily activity that makes you feel good. We encourage you to intentionally give attention to all the pleasant things around you and reflect on how they make you feel. Try it out! You’ll start to notice all the positive things in your life.

Jan 25, 2022
Authentic Relationships
00:04:45

Sometimes making friends can be easy, and sometimes it’s hard. Desiring connection and deep interpersonal relationships makes us human, but remember to avoid compromising our authentic self for someone else. Forcing relationships rarely work, so take time to learn when potential connections can be made and cultivate them. 

Jan 24, 2022
Mindfulness and Grief
00:04:13

There’s been a tremendous amount of loss during the pandemic. Loss of loved ones and the way we live our lives. It’s okay to feel what you’re feeling. The pandemic has taken a toll on us all, so remember to be gentle with yourself. 

Jan 21, 2022
Wellness in the Workplace
00:04:31

Not all workplaces are the same. Some work environments can be toxic, leading workers to feel pressure or anxiety. A way to counter an unhealthy workplace is by promoting wellness at your job. We all have to work, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could do so in a happy and healthy environment?

Jan 20, 2022
A Dichotomous Situation
00:04:47

We’d like to believe that things are always either black or white, but that’s simply not the case with emotions. Having conflicting emotions all at once can be confusing, but it’s perfectly okay to sit with our different emotions and find ourselves within that gray space. 

Jan 19, 2022
It Takes Time
00:03:56

It’s common to feel like you aren’t making visible progress in your meditation practice. We often like to see results right away, but meditation is actually something you grow with over time. When you hit this learning plateau, take time to reflect on why you started meditating in the first place and what progress looks to you.

Jan 18, 2022
Meditation is a Practice
00:04:35

We can’t avoid hard times. In moments of stress, you can always lean on your meditation practice and use intention-setting to guide your decisions on how to respond to challenging situations. Hardships are inevitable, but we can equip ourselves with the awareness to find solutions in the present moment. 

Jan 17, 2022
Everyone is Different
00:04:02

Everyone deals with issues differently and in their own way. A particular solution might work for one person, but it might not be appropriate for another. And that’s totally okay. Mindfulness encourages us to notice what is happening in the present moment and adapt to our needs. Try to reflect on what works for you and what doesn’t.

Jan 14, 2022
Leading by Example
00:04:53

We can sometimes underestimate our influence on the people around us — positive and negative. As you begin your meditation journey, think about how your mindfulness practice will affect your nearest and dearest. You might notice a shift in your personal relationships. 

Jan 13, 2022
The Healing Power of Laughter
00:05:43

There are moments in life that require serious attention. But sometimes we get so caught up in this attitude that we forget to enjoy the present. Try not to take life so seriously and learn how to make space for laughter. You might be surprised at how good it can feel to smile.

Jan 12, 2022
New Beginnings
00:04:15

Practicing a “beginner’s mind” asks us to drop expectations and other assumptions we formed through past experiences. Essentially, approach every moment as if we’re experiencing it for the very first time. Try it out and apply a “beginner’s mind” to every area of your life. 

Jan 11, 2022
Lost in Thought
00:05:09

Holding on to negative or even positive experiences can often lead us to feel stuck. When ruminating on these thoughts or experiences, we’re closing ourselves off from the present moment. In situations like these, it’s best to practice mindfulness and gently let go of the thoughts we’re holding onto and bring ourselves back to the present moment. 

Jan 10, 2022
Non-Striving Attitude
00:04:11

When fixated on the end goal, we often lose sight of the present moment. We can easily get wrapped up in our ambitions, which can cause stress, anxiety, and depression in our lives. How about we appreciate the present and the journey we’re on? 

As we wrap up this week, remember that all of the concepts we learned so far are interrelated: non-judging, patience, acceptance, trust, and non-striving.

Jan 07, 2022
Trust Yourself
00:04:59

Learn to listen and trust your inner voice. It’s easy to fall into a space of judgment when deciding if you should follow your intuition or not. Fears of making mistakes arise, but remember that mistakes are just lessons learned. It takes time to learn to trust yourself, and you can cultivate this trust through meditation. 

Jan 06, 2022
Accept Where You Are
00:03:40

When deciding to make a change in your life, it’s best to first accept where you're at in the present moment. You don't have to like where you are, but there's a difference between not liking something and harshly judging something. Learning this distinction is crucial when trying to make meaningful changes in your life.

Jan 05, 2022
Patience Takes Practice
00:03:59

In today’s world, we expect everything in an instant, including accomplishing our New Year’s resolutions. We’re so used to immediate gratification that practicing patience can feel uneasy. Don’t be afraid to let things unfold in their own time. 

Jan 04, 2022
New Year, New Me
00:05:08

Sticking to New Year’s resolutions is tough. Oftentimes we set unrealistic expectations and then judge ourselves for not meeting them. But what if we used mindfulness to help us accomplish our goals? For the next eight days, Kessonga will focus on one of eight concepts of mindfulness and discuss how incorporating these practices can help us successfully execute our goals.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Anticipation of Expectations
00:05:09

We move through life making choices with anticipation for an expected result. Sometimes, this can lead to disappointment that stops us from living in the moment and letting life just be what it is. Learn to feel comfortable with letting go of your anticipations. 

Dec 27, 2021
Radio Headspace Rewind: In Defense of Effort
00:05:08

There may be someone who is capable of making something you love look effortless. And when we’re beginning to learn something new, we can get discouraged by the amount of effort we have to put in. This is common in learning. Don’t judge your progress by someone else’s mastery.

Dec 24, 2021
Radio Headspace Rewind: Pics or It Didn’t Happen?
00:04:01

Think of the last event you went to. Now recall if everyone had their phones out. How much of our experiences are actually being experienced in the moment, and how often are we trying to capture moments to share at some future date? It’s the tension of all great photography — moments can only be captured when we are fully present, but by capturing them we disrupt the present. 

Dec 23, 2021
Radio Headspace Rewind: The Weaponization Of Mindfulness
00:04:02

Mindfulness is a non-judgmental state, but when we have an intellectual understanding of mindfulness, but not the experiential knowledge, we can use it to judge others. Today, focus on your experiences to empathize and be a source of compassion, not judgment. 

Dec 22, 2021
Radio Headspace Rewind: Take It Offline
00:05:01

What happens when you want to go off the Headspace app and be more spiritual in the world? This was a new one for us. But the essence of the mind is the same in all scenarios, spiritual or not. The goal is to be present. That’s it. 

Dec 21, 2021
Radio Headspace Rewind: _____ Is My Meditation
00:04:13

Entering a flow state through physical activity is meditative and focusing on our physical well-being is essential for living a long and happy life, but these things cannot replace the quality of mind cultivated by formal meditation training. 

Dec 21, 2021
Radio Headspace Rewind: You vs. You
00:04:50

If you were to line a bunch of babies up, you’d notice that there’s a difference in their nature. We’re born with these qualities. But our personalities develop over time, with our experiences. Don’t get so caught up in these surface-level traits that you don’t notice who you really are.

Bring Fun Back to Your Life (The Funtervention)

This week on Radio Headspace we have a very special guest host, Catherine Price. Catherine is an award winning science journalist and author of the new book The Power of Fun. Over the last few years Catherine has been researching and writing about our relationship to fun. She wants to know what it is, why we need it, and why it’s often elusive.

Radio Headspace Rewind: The End of a Feeling
00:02:50

We’re excellent at noticing when we start to feel angry, or sad, or happy, but when’s the last time you noticed when a mood ended or changed? Remember, emotion is temporary, and feeling is finite. The more often we notice the end of a feeling that challenges us, the easier we can find a place of peace and a calm mind.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Light vs. Warmth
00:03:43

Mindfulness is good for many things, but we tend to look at it differently depending on where we’ve learned it. Western mindfulness centers around awareness and Eastern mindfulness is more about compassion. But like the sun, both emit light and warmth, we need both awareness and compassion to truly live mindfully.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Having Scary Thoughts
00:04:37

Sometimes, thoughts that really scare us can arise. And if there is the chance of immediate harm for you or someone around you, please seek medical attention as quickly as possible. But for other scary thoughts, we tend to push them down. We judge them and judge ourselves from having them. But we don’t have to. It’s our job to just witness the mind as it is.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Don’t Scratch The itch
00:04:19

Itches have a way of taking over the body. It can be all we think about and we often scratch and scratch with little relief. This is common with physical discomfort. Whenever we notice a twinge, we immediately go to change it. But what if you sat with it for a moment instead? Explore sitting with discomfort and see what happens.

And while it may feel like it's a great thing to "respect each other's Headspace" and privacy, someone may be waiting for you to reach out to connect. If you're feeling lonely, or suspect someone you know may be, send them a message or give them a call today. It may make you both feel a little more connected, and a little less lonely.

Is your idea of what should be happening getting in the way of what is actually happening?

When we approach any new skill without expectation, we see the benefits sooner rather than later.

And it’s only by allowing thoughts to come and go without judgment that we can truly find peace of mind.

But if we are able to create space in our bodies and minds, we can choose how we respond, not just react.

When we approach change with compassion, the process of changing becomes a dance instead of a weight looming overhead.

Love has many meanings and takes many forms. Many times the ways we act in love, it’s out of convenience. It can be transactional, or something we do out of obligation.

Set Boundaries For Yourself
00:04:08

In all interpersonal relationships, boundaries aren’t just common sense, they are healthy. Boundaries can be hard to set, but they’re a form of self-protection and self-care. Remember, they’re not there to keep others out, they’re there to keep you safer and happier.

Paths to Personal Fulfillment
00:04:52

Very often, the dreams we have for ourselves are very different from the dreams that our loved ones may have for us. That can create tension in the relationship, but remember, these people often have the best intentions. Still, you must find your own path. What is best for you is up to you, and no one else.

Everyone’s a Teacher
00:03:56

It’s often the people who we underestimate that can teach us the most — if we let them. Keep your mind open, and listen to what guidance is coming your way.

Do You Really See Them?
00:04:09

When we talk about creating space in the mind in meditation, we are talking about allowing thoughts and feelings to breathe. This allows us perspective on a situation or pattern in our own lives. But when we do this for ourselves, we are also practicing doing this for other people. When we create space, we can see others for who they are. Not how we want them to be.

Keep Your Friends Close, and Demons Closer …
00:04:00

There’s a thought in Eastern philosophy that a ‘demon’ isn’t a monster. It’s anything that hinders us from our liberation. These can be things that live within us. Today, instead of meeting your demons with judgment or attempts to repress, try to approach them with compassion and see how that makes you feel.

Your Reticular Activating System
00:04:28

All of the sensory information we receive every single day is filtered by one part of the brain: the reticular activating system, or RAS.

Don’t Forget to Breathe
00:04:06

Stay Strong
00:04:44

When you express a negative emotion, how often are you told to “be positive” or “stay strong”? Today, we want to reframe how you think about strength. To be human is to experience the full range of the human experiences, so the next time you think to choose stoic strength over tears, consider allowing yourself to feel what comes natural to you.

Reduce Stress, Increase Resiliency
00:05:26

There’s a common misconception that mindfulness can reduce stress. What mindfulness actually does is increase your stress resiliency, which is how we respond to stressors in our environment. Stress will never disappear — it’s a part of life — but through meditation and mindfulness, we can learn to control our reactions to it, making our response to stress less extreme.

The book Kessonga mentioned is Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn. You can also get a crash course on meditation and mindfulness in Andy’s book, Get Some Headspace.

But rushing to squash those feelings often leads us to fixate on them, which is the opposite of what we’re trying to do! It’s only by creating space for our feelings that we can move past them.
