Headspace is a mobile- and web-based guided meditation app suitable for all ages. It is intended to help people deal with stress, to increase awareness, and to promote well-being. It relies on the principle that regular practice of guided meditation and mindfulness can help to improve various aspects of people’s daily lives, such as sleep, stress, and relationships. Headspace’s main feature is a daily 10-minute meditation. It begins with a 10-day foundation training, which is free of charge and includes short animated illustrations conveying the rationale in a clear and simple way. For additional options, users need to purchase access to the full version, which includes several themes (e.g., sport, health, relationships, performance). For each theme selected – compatible with the user’s preferences – Headspace provides several daily meditations and tunnels users through their progress. Additional features include single meditations and meditations for children by age group (under 5, 6–8, 9–12).
