We could all use a little more Headspace in our lives – especially during pregnancy!
Developed by a former Buddhist monk, Headspace is a meditation app, with over a million users worldwide. Starting with just 10 mindful minutes per day, this app aims to transform the way your brain works, helping to reduce stress, recharge creativity, boost focus and even improve your relationships.
So how can it help during pregnancy?
This summer, the founder of Headspace Andy Puddicombe released a book – The Headspace Guide to a Mindful Pregnancy, along with a brand new pregnancy pack, which can be found in the health section of the app.
Now we know what you’re thinking…. A pregnancy guide written by a man? But hear us out! It offers simple, empowering exercises designed to create the best state of mind from conception, through pregnancy, birth and parenthood. Andy puts it better than we could – check out his explanation on the Headspace blog.
This app changes lives for the better; scores of celebrities and successful entrepreneurs swear by the Headspace system including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Watson, TV presenter and fan of the Seraphine maternity jeans Fearne Cotton, Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington and Seraphine founder Cecile Reinaud.
Your pregnancy could be the perfect opportunity to shake up the way you think and introduce a little mindfulness into your routine!
