Description

Join us every weekday morning to take a few moments to step out of the internal chatter and external noise. We'll pause and reflect to consider what brings us together in this shared human condition and how we can live a life that best reflects our limitless potential.

Episode Date
From Reaction to Response
385
Stress isn’t inherently good or bad, it’s simply a natural response to something that feels threatening. During these moments of stress response, our bodies and nervous system can’t tell whether a lion is chasing you or your flight is delayed, all it knows is to react. But if we are able to create space in our bodies and minds, we can choose how we respond, not just react. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Room For Not Knowing
262
Many of us feel like we have to know everything that’s going to happen, all of the time. But this feeling creates resistance in the mind. If we have to be so certain all the time, we lose space for curiosity, imagination, and even intimacy and connection with other people. This weekend, practice curiosity instead of certainty.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Rough Drafts and Revisions
348
Every time we think we’ve arrived somewhere, life has a way of changing our destination. It’s a constant work in progress, even when it feels like a decision or mistake we made is final. When we embrace the idea that nothing is final, we give ourselves the grace to begin again, no matter what happened before. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Everything’s Been Done Before
203
Have you heard the saying “everything has been done before”? That may be true, but it hasn’t been done by you! The idea that nothing is original can come up when we’re scared of trying something new, but remember, as long as you bring your authentic self to the experience, it will feel totally unique.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Each Step Counts
179
We love how the wellness community connects online, and how much it’s grown! But it’s easy to see everyone’s wellness breakthroughs and ‘healing highlights’ on social media, and think that’s all wellness should be. Breakthroughs are amazing, but every step you take every single day counts. Today, think about where you were a year ago and celebrate just how far you’ve come.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Lead by Being
211
When you’re on your own path, it can cause some friction in your interpersonal relationships — especially if you’re on a new health and wellness journey that no one else in your family wants to come on with you. It can be tempting to try to push other people onto a healthier path, but the best way to convince people to follow is to be an example. Learn more about your ad choices.

The Dream You’re Already Living
329
Think back to your life a year ago. Chances are, you’re living in ways you may have only dreamed of. In the pursuit of our dreams, we often get caught up in the day-to-day struggle and forget how far we’ve come. Today, remember how far you’ve already come, and celebrate.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Change is a Good Thing
292
We’ve all heard the axiom, the only constant is change. Many of us ‘fear’ change, because we’ve learned to associate change as a process to make up for what we lack, instead of changing with compassion and care. When we approach change with compassion, the process of changing becomes a dance instead of a weight looming overhead.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

No More Bad Days
202
Question for you: Did you really have a bad day, or did you have a bad moment that clouded everything else? If we’re not careful, that bad ‘day’ can creep into a bad week, or month, or year! Practice accepting things as they are — not how you wish they would be — and see if that doesn’t help you move on faster from bad moments. Learn more about your ad choices.

Why You Should Stop Complaining
272
We’ve all heard that complaining isn’t good for your mood,  but it’s also unhealthy for the body. It can actually damage your brain! Today, when the urge to complain arises, we invite you to try to reframe your reaction into something healthier — like gratitude — instead. Learn more about your ad choices.

Acting in Love
244
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. But what would happen if we applied mindfulness to love, and attempt to act in love in a way that feels fully present in our mind and body? Try it today. Learn more about your ad choices.

Set Boundaries For Yourself
248
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.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Paths to Personal Fulfillment
292
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.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Everyone’s a Teacher
235
Guidance can come from anywhere — and very often from places we didn’t expect, or even want. But anyone can be a teacher if you are willing to listen to them. 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.  Want Dora’s entire breakup collection?

Do You Really See Them?
249
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 …
239
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. Learn more about your ad choices.

You Were Born With a Destiny
259
 Is there a part of you that you’ve been previously shamed for? Maybe it’s 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. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Past, Present, Future You
261

Your Reticular Activating System
268
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.

Don’t Forget to Breathe
245
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. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Stay Strong
283
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.

Welcome to Sunday
353
From Headspace Studios, we wish you a warm welcome to Sunday afternoons and to that creeping feeling of anxiety that seems to pop up around that time.

Work Hard, Rest Harder
329
Most of us grew up with the mantra “work hard, play hard.” You can take extended periods of rest, like a vacation — but only if you work first! This weekend, take a mini-vacation or staycation. Prioritize rest, and we’ll see you back here on Monday. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Listen to Your Body
212
There is a lot of wellness advice out there — what to eat, when to eat it, how to exercise, what ‘healthy’ looks like. But what much of this advice fails to mention is that none of it matters if it doesn't feel good to you. Let’s practice being mindful of what your body is telling you.

Let’s Talk About Kindness
236
It’s easy to be kind when you’re in a good mood, but opportunities to be kind can arise at any time. It’s those moments when we have to deliberately choose kindness that can ultimately result in more happiness, than moments when we already feel kind. Learn more about your ad choices.

One Way to Eat A Raisin
315
How often do we go to do something, and finish the task with no recollection of it at all? This is because we don’t have present-moment awareness. But we can cultivate this skill through mindfulness. Consider practicing this weekend with a snack — it doesn’t have to be a raisin! Have a good weekend, everyone! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Be Honest, Not Judgmental
328
While self-evaluation is healthy for self-improvement, it is often easy to confuse honesty with criticism. The latter comes from a place of judgment, which we should work to avoid. So today, let’s practice being honest with ourselves minus the judgment, and see how this can improve our well-being. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Trust Your Gut
310
In the Headspace app, we often talk about the ever-present blue sky. That’s the sense of calm and ease that’s present in all of us, all of the time. In the same way, our intuition is always there to guide us. That instinctive voice always knows the right way, but sometimes we don’t listen.

Reduce Stress, Increase Resiliency
326
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.  If you like what you hear, you can spend more time with Kessonga inside of the Headspace app, where he leads a variety of guided meditations and wind downs for sleep.

Make Friends with Fear
337
Most of us spend a lot of time trying to ignore or limit our interaction with strong negative feelings. Things like fear, sadness, or anger can be scary or painful. 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.

Make Meditation Your Own
311
Headspace teachers provide general instructions in each of our meditation and mindfulness sessions that usually work for most people. This does not mean that all guidance works for all people, and we encourage you to be aware of what’s being said, and find what works for you. Your practice is yours, after all! Make it your own.

Walk Your Own Path
245
Social media is a great way to stay connected and keep up with what others are doing. But make sure you’re keeping up, and not getting caught up. We each walk our own paths. Yours is yours to walk, and yours alone. Be mindful of what’s influencing the decisions you make.

An Attitude of Gratitude
245
We talk a lot about staying in the present moment, but that is more than just being aware of what’s going on right now. Today, we’re digging into awareness, but approaching that awareness with a sense of gratitude. This weekend, we challenge you to keep up with your pleasant events and spend a few moments reflecting on the good things happening right now.

Be Gentle with Yourself
282
There’s a fine line between self-care and indulgent complacency. At the same time, there’s a fine line between self-encouragement and being harsh with ourselves.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Pay Attention to the Breath
305
The entire planet is a living, breathing organism. It changes every day. The air we breathe could have been created thousands of miles away.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Take Your Practice With You
268
We place a lot of value on our physical and mental health. You may even meditate or do yoga.

Radio Headspace Rewind: What’s Real and What’s Not?
235
A lot of us walk around waiting for something to happen. We can carry that tension in our bodies and minds, constantly on alert, imagining an unpleasant experience. It’s an uncomfortable way to live. And if we walk through life waiting, or intentionally looking for those things, we will keep that story alive. This weekend, try to let go of what’s not real and focus on what is.

Radio Headspace Rewind: How Do You See Yourself?
250
We all seem to have a fixed idea of who we think we are and who we’re not. And often, that can define how we live. We just might be shortchanging ourselves in the process. But if we can catch those ideas as they arise and explore them, we can see that anything and everything is possible. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Blue Zones are regions of the world where people live longer and happier than anywhere else. There are lots of reasons for this — what they eat, how much they move. But the deep relationships that people in Blue Zones have add up to 8 years to their lives. Is there someone special to you that you haven’t connected with in a while?

Radio Headspace Rewind: Don’t Be Afraid of Feeling
322
We’ve heard a lot of questions about happiness lately. Mostly, “is it bad if I’m feeling happy?” That assumes there is a choice in how we feel.

242
If you’re reexamining your life right now, you’re not alone. We’re taking stock of what we like and what we would like to change. But with change, no matter how positive, can often come fear. Fear of not knowing what the end result will be. This week, try to maintain a spirit of exploration. Try something new for the sake of doing it, not to reach a final outcome.  Want more Andy?

Radio Headspace Rewind: We Are Who We Are
207
Getting along with other people doesn’t mean constant harmony or even agreement. We don’t have to always like what the people around us do. But we do have to allow people to be exactly who they are. After all, isn’t that what we want for ourselves? This weekend, consider that harmonious relationships are less about what we do, and more about what we don’t do.

Today is World Meditation Day and while it is a wonderful practice, the minutes you spend in meditation are quite small compared to the remaining time of each day.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Now’s a Good Time for Quiet … Now Is Good, Too
226
Often, we think that when conditions are just right we can finally change. We fantasize about solitude and quietly retreating to finally tackle the big issues weighing on our minds. If only we had that peace and quiet, we could do it! But it’s often the input from others that show us exactly where those points of resistance are. If you find yourself irritated, frustrated, or resisting something or someone in your environment today, try embracing that moment as a chance to connect with yourself on a deeper level.

Radio Headspace Rewind: The Chaos That Is Now
194
A lot of us are trying to build a sense of order and control amidst the chaos that is our lives right now. Very often, that can look like a very strict daily schedule, a list of books and movies to cross off your queue, or perhaps keeping the home very tidy. It’s good to have order, but being too strict with it means we feel like we’re falling apart when one thing is out of line.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Finding Solace in Solitude
142
Finding time for yourself may seem like an odd concept — especially if you’re quarantining alone — but it’s easy to get distracted, from being caught up in Zoom calls to binge-watching TV or constantly reading the news. If you’re with others, it’s tempting to look at taking time for yourself as selfish, but in solitude, we can find a way to reconnect with ourselves. And when we go back out into life we can be better for ourselves, and for the people around us.  Want more Andy? Try Headspace today. Learn more about your ad choices.

Radio Headspace Rewind: Make Some Room

Children throw tantrums and we call them “naughty.” We say, “they’ll grow out of it,” and move on. But as adults, we don’t stop reacting — it just looks a little different.

The Weaponization of Mindfulness
242
Mindfulness is a non-judgemental 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 judgement. This week, Radio Headspace is sponsored by The Michelle Obama Podcast. Listen exclusively on Spotify.

You vs. You

Are You Bored?
267
“Boredom” has become something negative. We see it as a condition of our lives that we must change. We search for stimulation and distraction, but by doing that, we are essentially saying that this moment is not enough. The next time you feel bored, pause and examine it. You may find that you’re never bored again. This week, Radio Headspace is sponsored by The Michelle Obama Podcast. Listen free at Spotify.com/MichelleObama Learn more about your ad choices.

Big Mind, Small Mind
241
Today we’re talking about an idea that comes from the Zen tradition. There are two ways of looking at the world: up high, like the view an eagle might have flying over the mountains, and up close, as if you were noticing every grain of sand. The two are vastly different - so how can we do both? This week, Radio Headspace is brought to you by The Michelle Obama Podcast.

The End of a Feeling

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.

Light vs. Warmth
222
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.    This week, Radio Headspace is sponsored by Indeed.

On Mindful Eating
276
One of the things we’ve been asked the most lately is about our eating habits during lockdown. It seems that being within arm’s reach of the fridge amplifies a lot of thoughts about food, and often, we engage in an internal battle about that thought. The next time thoughts about food or eating habits arise, try to notice it, acknowledge it, and act appropriately — not react emotionally.
