So, What Is Headspace?
Headspace is meditation, but not as you know it.
For a start, there's no chanting, no sitting cross-legged, no incense and definitely no gurus. There's no religious agenda and no mystical or cultural barriers--just simple, practical tools to help you find a bit more clarity and calm in your everyday life.
And although it's simple to learn, the benefits you'll experience are pretty amazing--from feeling less stressed, less tired and less tense, to just feeling generally happier

And like Mr. Oliver, he’s ready to conquer the United States." - The New York Times
