Headspace = paying for something that you can do for free and should be free. Hipsters ruining everything, they ruined beards.
For those as lazy as me

"Headspace is an app with hundreds of voice-guided meditations, spoken by world-renowned expert Andy Puddicombe. You'll get a subscription to the full app"
I didn't like Headspace. Apart from not getting on with the content, I don't think the guy has the right voice for guided meditations. I much prefer the Insight Timer - hundreds and hundreds of guided meditations and it's totally free. Also the basic version of Destressify is free, though only a few guided meditations.

If you can find Jon Kabat Zinn's guided meditations online or on a cd, they are excellent, especially the Body Scan. Also, Tara Brach has a lot of stuff online (and on the Insight Timer) and I find her meditations very good.

Brilliant app
scorchio!
I've done the whole process and installed the app - how do I make the app recognise I should have the premium version now? Really confused...

What does the app do?
Wish I still had my student account. Anyone have any tips on how to get one?
Don't know what the app is, but I got it anyways! Heat just because it's free!!
Amazing offer!

Shame I can't get this. I'm a student but I pay for the family subscription for my mum too!

You could do one student membership for you (£4.99), one for your mum (£9.99) and then get this included. You'll being paying the same amount (in fact you will save 1p!)
Thanks for this! Simple to add to my account.

I remember seeing some ways to get an NUS card in here without being a student a few weeks back. NUS lets you get student Spotify so should work.

Going to disagree on the first point. Have bought countless books on meditation and mindfulness but could not relax enough to get started.
This worked for me and literally melted away my anxiety and allowed me to trully relax.

I do however agree on point number 2, hipsters did indeed ruin beards

How long does this last before you get hit with full membership?

It says whenever your student Spotify discount expires

I can imagine lots of people forgetting and getting charged £14.99

Don't you have to prove you are still a student with Spotify every year?
Ooh thank you, I'll be having a look at this - partner's sick of me using his Spotify and I'm massively stressed so it's a win win!

Yes you do, and i always forget.
I got the email for this yesterday and signed up. It's a good deal, just keep watching your account and keep applying the student discount every year.

It won't let me log in with Spotify as I've previously had a (free) account with the same email! UGH

This card is designed for graduates and gives all the same discount as NUS extra card. So no need to sign up for online courses etc.

You don't even need to bother paying for an online course. When it asks you for place of study on NUS site just put "The Shaw Academy"

What does the app do?


It produces a hole in your head so you have space to store miscellaneous items.
For me this app helped the penny drop as to mindfulness. Yes you could do it by yourself but the guided meditation, there are many which have a particular focus. For example a recent addition is a rehab one for those recovering from an injury, which is part of sports pack, other pack are related to health, relationships performance etc.

If you are a graduate, then you might be able to get an NUS Alumni card. Enter your email address (any valid email will do), then select the place you graduated from. It worked for me:

Tell that to all the people homeless or living on the breadline in this country, it's going up day by day
Thanks for the replies. Went for the alumni option!
If you are not interested in Spotify (and NUS Extra) then you can apply the code 'Mindful' to get a 25% discount, bringing monthly subscription to £3.66.
I'm getting an error when I try to activate the headspace sub, i already had a headspace account that is linked to the same email address as my spotify account (it's my facebook account). Anyone know anyway around this?
Awesome!
It's cheaper to subscribe Anxiety UK, £30 per year and includes free Head space access.
