Headspace for Educators - Headspace giving an annual subscription to working K-12 teachers, school administrators, and support staff.

Headspace (Andy Puddicombe) is an amazing app/website. Andy and Headspace have made more than a positive impact on my life. I look at things differently, use the lessons learned and apply it to when I speak with my family and children, and have made me appreciate life more and more with each passing day.

The site describes Headspace as:

Meditation for Modern Life. Anywhere, Anytime. See What A Few Minutes Can Do. Learn the Basics of Meditation for Free When You Join Headspace. Sign Up Today. Over 15 Million Users. Build Healthy Habits. Use Anywhere, Anytime. Suits Your Mood/Lifestyle.

If you know me at all, you know I run and I use the Nike+ Run App. Built into the app are the guided runs and since it has launched, I use Coach Chris Bennett and Andy Puddicombe's Headspace Runs. 

This sharing from Andy has helped me so many times and has given me words to use when talking with others about goal setting.

On Headspace's website they give a nice history of who Andy Puddicombe is along with some resources and a TED Talk. The information below is copied directly from the site.

Andy Puddicombe

Andy Puddicombe is a meditation and mindfulness expert. An accomplished presenter and writer, Andy is the voice of all things Headspace.
In his early twenties, midway through a university degree in Sports Science, Andy made the unexpected decision to travel to the Himalayas to study meditation instead. It was the beginning of a ten year journey which took him around the world, culminating with ordination as a Tibetan Buddhist monk in Northern India.
His transition back to lay life in 2004 was no less extraordinary. Training briefly at Moscow State Circus, he returned to London where he completed a degree in Circus Arts with the Conservatoire of Dance and Drama, whilst drawing up the early plans for what was later to become Headspace.

Take care and get some Headspace!
