App find: Headspace

Hi Child lifers!

This month’s app find is one that can help patients of all ages, as well as yourself.

Wondering what it is? It’s called Headspace: Mediation. It has tons of guided meditation sessions for adults and children.  It does require a subscription for the more detailed sessions, but there are a lot of free basic sessions that you can recommend to teenage patients and that you can try yourself. The sessions for younger children require a subscription.

Some examples of sessions they have for adults are:

  • Managing Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Sleep
  • Coping with cancer
  • Self-esteem
  • Grief

Download it HERE.

I have been personally using this app for about a week and I have to say it has been surprisingly enjoyable. I have always been a skeptic when it comes to mediation, but I have given it a chance and I really like it. I do a 3 to 5 minute session right before bed and it makes forget about whatever stress I had that day and clears my head so I can get a good night’s rest. Especially now that I will be starting school again and my internship, I think I will definitely be using this app often.

Let me know if you download the app and try a session, I would love to hear your thoughts about it!

Below are some screenshots of what the app looks like.

Till next time!!
