Life can be stressful, and stress can have serious repercussions on our health. At one time or another, many of us will have experienced that sense of being overwhelmed, as if everything were too much.
Sometimes, simply taking time to pause and rest the mind can be enough to feel better in the moment, so before going any further, here’s a quick exercise to help distance yourself from stressful thoughts right away.
Healthy sleep has more to do with quality of rest than quantity of hours. Sleep meditations help create the inner conditions needed for a truly restful night. Because when we settle the mind, we rest the body—and that restfulness is what makes it easier to wind down and drift off.
Meditation has been shown to help people sleep better, stress less and, you guessed it, focus more. Headspace is meditation made simple. We’ll teach you the life-changing skills of meditation and mindfulnessin just a few minutes a day.
Anyone who has ever been in the grip of anxiety knows how intense it can be.

So if you feel like you’re the only one dealing with anxiety — and yes, that’s how isolating it can feel — be assured you’re not alone.
