Better mental health starts with Headspace

Reason seeks to join the dots, to make sense of it all. But life is bigger than that. If we're to experience limitless mind, then at some point we have to let go of these tiny little dots in our life. So on the one hand, on a practical sort of level, it's quite useful to have these little dots in our life, a sense of everything being connected in some way. And the mind likes that, the rational mind, the thinking mind likes this idea that it has a sense of an overview of everything being connected, 'cause it gives us a sense of security, perhaps a sense of comfort. But as long as we are fixed to that idea, then we can't really move very freely. We certainly can't enjoy the experience of a limited mind. Life sort of connected in the way we think about it sometimes. That seems very limited. So sometimes we need to step back from that view, that opinion, that belief and just put it down for a moment and notice that actually the mind isn't fixed in any way at all. It's not limited in any way at all. If we allow it to unfold, we'll see that actually, the mind is limitless. So just making sure that you're sat comfortably. Making sure that the back is straight, is upright without being forced in any way. We're gonna start with the eyes open. And some big, deep breaths, breathing in through the nose, out through the mouth. As you breathe in, noticing how the chest expands as the lungs fill with air and as you breathe out through the mouth how the muscles soften as the body gives way. And with the next exhalation, just allowing the breath to return to its natural rhythm. As you close the eyes, feel the weight of the body pressing down and just settle in to the space around you. So remember, allowing sounds to come and go. Just paying attention to them, not getting involved in them, not resisting them, just noticing the different sounds around you. And as you bring the attention back to the body, noticing how you're sat, noticing how the body feels right now. A sense of tiredness or lightness. Is there a greater sense of stillness or restlessness in the body right now? Without trying to change anything, just being interested, curious, starting at the top of the head, just gently scanning down, all the way to the toes. Noticing how the body feels. And now just shifting that attention to the breath and to the movement of breath in the body. And noticing where you feel the rising and falling sensation of the breath. Noticing the rhythm of the breath as well. So whether the breaths are long, short, deep or shallow. And as you continue to follow the breath, now counting the breaths as they pass, just remembering to realize, to notice when the mind's become distracted in...
