Better mental health starts with Headspace

(air blows) (mouse clicks) (inspiring music) Head Space Studios. Hello everyone. Here we are for another episode of "Dear Head Space." Today I am joined by Eve, whoo! and we are gonna be answering questions about how to balance privilege and care for the world, how to deal with procrastination, and we are gonna be doing a deep dive on when you experience a loss of relationship, but you still wanna find love. So without further ado, here we go. Have you ever wished you had a wise meditation teacher on speed dial? Someone you can call after a long day? Someone you could lean on for their advice? Someone to listen and help you to see things differently? Welcome to "Dear Head Space," a podcast where I sit with a meditation teacher and we answer your questions. Hi Eve, it is so lovely to see your bright and sparkly face today. How are you? Hi Robin. So nice to see you as well. I'm fine, I mean, I'm fine. I feel like when I say I'm fine. I'm not really fine. I'm fine. I'm fine. That came out. I am, I'm well. Okay. Okay. That's good to hear. Well, I am super excited to get to our questions today, and we've got a question about privilege and I don't think that that's a topic that we've talked about before, so I am really excited to get to it. So I think maybe we should just jump right in with that question. What do you think? Let's do it. Okay, here's Charlotte. Hi to the Head Space community and everyone listening, my name is Charlotte, and I'm in my first year at university. And as you can imagine, that involves a lot of change. I'm quite prone to anxious thoughts, and have been meditating for three years. Initially when I joined university, I joined loads and loads of different clubs and societies. However, now as a result of being worried about the state of the world and inaction, I've chosen to instead focus my time volunteering. I believe that in focusing on volunteering, I can look at the positive ways in which I can influence the world and hopefully my influence will be able to expand over time. My question today is related to a quote, may I soften towards my care and concern for the world that was said in a Head Space meditation? This quote really resonated with me, but I'm not quite sure why. I would love for you to explain it. I'm from quite a privileged background and constantly think whether my actions are okay, like, what is okay for me to do and what's not? Can I go on holiday? Can I drive a car? Can I do this and that? I feel like I need a reason for distinguishing between two things. Do you think this is true or do you think a feeling's okay? Thank you. Wow, Charlotte, that is a really big...
