If proof were needed that games have changed the world, behold the gameification of meditation. Meditate, then level-up and unlock animations. See your stats and compare progress with friends on social media. Thankfully. it doesn’t degenerate into a contest to see who is more at peace. Headspace is, in fact, a wonderful app and a gentle, comprehensive introduction to meditation. Its backbone is the “Take 10” method, which suggests that you meditate for 10 minutes a day for the first 10 days. It’s got advice on how to maintain the habit; and you can tailor it according to what you want meditation to do for you, whether you want to address creativity, happiness, focus, performance, mindfulness, relaxing or sleeping. The audio meditations are read by the creator of Head- space, author and Buddhist Andy Puddicombe. Headspace is a gentle, appealing introduction to meditation, recently updated with hundreds of hours of new content and individual sessions for specific moments and moods. headspace.com
