Headspace

Best high chair? (We all know it's the Ikea one really but refusniks will bring us tales of Tripp-Trappery and booster seats). Have you discovered an excellent finger food snack, toothbrush, bib or more importantly A Lipstick That Really Does Stay On?

Has anyone used this and if so do you think it's worth signing up for the paid for product? I'm on day 4 of the free 10 day trial and really enjoying it but not sure whether to bite the bullet and part with my money?

A few people on here have done it and recommend it. I joined up last year but let it lapse. However, my DH joined at the same time and has done it religiously, every day, which he wouldn't have done if he'd not found it helpful. He has chronic depression and anxiety. I don't really have any anxiety issues so although I thought it was good for me, I guess I didn't feel enough benefit to continue with the practice. I really like their ethos though and it wasn't that expensive so I didn't begrudge the money I'd spent on it that I didn't use iyswim?

So...no idea if that's any help to you!

That is helpful sf. There is one thing I wanted to know which you may be able to answer. I find finding 10 minutes a day to do it is manageable. Any more than that and I know I won't make time. If you join up is there sufficient 'short' sessions or does it then require a longer commitment each time? I'd maybe be able to find 30 mins once a week but any more than that and I know I'll lose heart.

I did it a while back and thought it was excellent but never subscribed beyond the 10 free ones.

I was using it again and thoroughly enjoying it again but just feel it's a lot to pay a month for something I'd be unlikely to remember to use every day. If I trusted myself to do it religiously I might consider it.

I've just downloaded a free mindfulness one instead - Stop, Breathe and Think. Only used it twice and it seems ok.

I'm pretty certain you could choose 10 minute versions of the sessions, or definitely 15 minute versions anyway. I'll try to remember to ask DH.

Ah ok. So pay it as a one of and download 10 or whatever that are relevant to you?

DH says you can choose 10 minutes for all of them.

Thanks sf, that's really helpful.

I think I'll sign up for a month and see if a) stick at it and b) see continued benefits.
