Better mental health starts with Headspace

(gas hisses) (button clicks) (ethereal music) Headspace Studio. Just because a relationship ends, it doesn't mean it's a failure. It can open up other possibilities and that's where reconnecting with yourself comes in. (mellow music) 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 Headspace." Hello everyone. I am so excited to be here for another episode of "Dear Headspace," a podcast where I sit down with a Headspace meditation teacher and we answer your questions about family relationships and sometimes how to get into them and sometimes how to get out of them. And I am Robin Hopkins and I am here today with the Eve. Hello, Eve. Hello, Robin. Is that too much- Am I your the Robin. The Robin. That's too associated with like Batman. It just doesn't work the same as like the Eve. (Eve laughs) Just like it's a thing. Well, we've got exciting things in store for you and I know how much you, in particular, like surprises.

All right. Your next question is, if you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance of winning a medal for? My ability to open the fridge and if there's nothing in there, make a meal out of something. Really? I'm really, really good at working with few ingredients but still somehow coming up with something. (laughs) That's hilarious. (Eve laughs) Okay. All right. What song have you completely memorized? Hmm. Well, okay, so one of my all-time favorite songs, tunes, is Bob Marley, "No Woman, No Cry." So I feel like when that's on, I could genuinely sing that from start to finish, but I'm not sure I could do it without hearing it. Right, right. (Eve chuckles) Oh, okay.
