A very British state of mind…

We all might share the human experience but the British state of mind has a wonderful peculiarity all of its own. At Headspace, we understand this more than most, mainly because we were born and bred in the UK, back in 2010.

From small beginnings in London, our co-founders—former ad executive Richard Pierson and ex-Buddhist monk Andy Puddicombe—embarked on a global mission to improve the health and happiness of the world. They understood that everyone has a mind and, from time to time, everyone struggles with that mind. It’s why one million members meditate with us every week.

Of course, different countries and cultures bring different flavours and challenges to everyday life. So we’ve pulled together a special collection of exercises that address a uniquely British experience—meditations designed for those who truly want to keep calm and carry on.

UK Collection - Commuting

Commuting

Whether you’re commuting overground or underground, relying on public transport can leave us frazzled at the start or end of a day. Destress and unwind with these exercises so that you arrive at work, or home, like James Bond: cool, calm, and collected.

Headspace Queuing

Queuing

Whoever said Brits liked to queue was lying. But instead of standing in line and simply reaching for your phone as a distraction, use the opportunity to breathe, reset, and enjoy the pause.

UK Collection - Brexit Stress

Brexit Stress

Whether you voted Remain or Leave, this issue has proved divisive and tested some friendships. We get it—this is a monumental moment in British history. But whatever your beliefs, these exercises are designed to provide some breathing room if it’s all proving a little too much.

UK Collection - Weather

Weather

The British weather is something not even meditation can change. But you can reframe how you think about it. Transform doom and gloom into a sunny disposition, whatever the forecast.

UK Collection - Tea break

Tea break

For some, a cup of tea is cathartic in and of itself. But now you can maximise that tea break by turning it into a restorative moment. In the time it takes to pop the kettle on and let the tea stew, you can restore, refresh, and reset.

Sunday Roast

Nothing beats a good old English roast. But everyone can be more present, in both the kitchen and around the table. Savour the experience that little bit more with these eyes-open exercises that might just make your mouth water.

UK Collection - New Year

New Year

What better time than New Year to revel in the present moment? All sorts of emotions are stirred at the end/start of a year, so this is a chance to take stock and anchor yourself in the here and now...and maybe take meditation with you into 2019.
