A Headspace Meditation for Stress

Andy Puddicombe | 10:00


So taking some time to get comfortable, whether you're sitting up or lying down. Just gonna start with the eyes open. Soft focus, just taking in the space around you in the room, no matter what's been going on, no matter what the mind is stressed with right now, no matter how the body feels, just for a moment letting go of all.

Just focusing on the space around you without moving the eyes, just taking in the space and just starting with a few deep breaths. Breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth as you breathe in. Just feeling the body expand, the lungs, taking him fresh.

As the body exhales, just a sense of letting go of whatever's going on in the mind, in the body, and breathing in through the nose. 

And as you breathe out this time, allowing the eyes to close, feeling the weight of the body, press down, contact the surface beneath you. The mind probably is gonna be quite busy if it's been very stressed out. Just allow the mind to do its own thing.

So not trying to think about it, not trying to stop the thoughts, just allow the mind to do its own thing. We're gonna bring all of the attention into the body noticing. So does the body feel heavy or light right now?does it feel restless or still, is there, uh, a sense of flow in the body or do things feel a little bit stuck in some.

They're not thinking about it, just noticing the sensation in the body and starting at the top of the head, just gently scanning down. If the mind's very busy, but it feels difficult to, to gently scan down at a slow pace, you can just speed it up. A little bit and just go multiple times down through the body.
