The Headspace app is a free tool designed to help people who want to practice meditation. Available for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones, the service uses user information to implement a daily audio lesson activity plan. According to the user's level of knowledge, the tool offers less or more intense modules, with exercises according to the needs of each person.
To get started, simply create an account from an email address or Facebook account, the fastest way to sign up. The app, which was recommended by influencer Gabriela Pugliesi on its official website, features menus and English classes. Unfortunately, there is no possibility to change the language to Portuguese. To learn how to use Headspace on your mobile phone and fight everyday stress, follow the tutorial below.
