Headspace: A Meditation App

Contributed by Caryn S. Feldman, PhD, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago Center For Pain Management:

The app Headspace, designed by a team including a former Buddhist monk and some brilliant computer developers, was created to show you – no matter who you are and what your lifestyle – how to meditate. With an easy and effective technique for meditation, learn how to sleep better, manage stress, and engage in other practices that can lead to feeling happier. It’ll take you no more than ten minutes a day, and the results will be transformative.

Dan Harris, co-anchor of ABC’s “Nightline,” talks a little about how and why he found his way to meditation, his new book on the subject of meditating in the modern age, and the positive results meditative practices have produced for him.
