Headspace Unwind Your Mind, released on Netflix, is a third instalment of the meditative and relaxing series created by Headspace which is an online company that specializes in creating techniques through which you slow down and take a break from your fast-paced life by providing benefits of meditating through the series, articles, and other videos. It is produced by Vox Media Studios.
Followed by the series Headspace Guide to Meditation and Headspace Guide to Sleep, Headspace Unwind Your Mind is an interactive experience designed to help you relax. The past one and half years have been hard for everyone. Through this wonderful initiative, Headspace offers you different exercises for meditation, relaxation or help you with sleeping soundly.
Whatever path you choose, you will get more customizable options that will help you feel less stressed, less anxious, and get a good night’s sleep. This is an interesting interactive series and not the first one that Netflix has released. It is also good to see that amongst the long list of movies and shows on Netflix, there is one such option that can help you unwind.
Soothing Voices of Headspace
Headspace Unwind Your Mind is yet again voiced by the Headspace co-founder Andy Puddicombe and Director of Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher Eve Lewis Prieto. Their soothing voices, which we have heard in the two instalments before this, take us through a journey of tranquillity.
However, no matter how good the exercises are, one of the major questions that arrive is – are they effective? The idea behind this series and the rest of the work by Headspace is to offer you a peaceful headspace in which you can disconnect from the world around you and connect with yourself.
There is a growing number of mental health illnesses that are faced by the youth. The added stress and anxiety by social media has not helped us. Headspace Unwind Your Mind helps us by offering every tiny help that they can to improve the mental health of those who use their services.
The meditation activity offered by Headspace Unwind Your Mind is science-backed with facts and research. According to their data which is available on their website, it just requires 10 days to increased happiness by 16% while using Headspace.
A Mindful Experience
This mindful experience starts with breathing exercises that will help you in collecting your thoughts and focus on improving your breathing. Headspace Unwind Your Mind is made in such a way that you can access it anytime, anywhere, and without having to subscribe to the Headspace.
It is also amazing to see how Headspace has used different mediums to express ways that can help us with dealing with mental health issues. This collaboration between Netflix and Headspace has garnered a huge number of people who have started to meditate. Their module on helping you get a sound sleep is quite fascinating. After trying it personally, it did help me with sleeping and what helped me more was how the series went on without a sound.
The communication style, the sound, and the cute animation is a thoughtful way and a unique tool to calm down and relax before you go to bed. It also depends on how you are feeling at the time you go through this. Headspace Unwind Your Mind will help you connect to your mind, body, and feelings.
No matter what you choose, you can also go back to the start and experience the calming and peaceful exercises over and over again. This mindful adventure of Headspace Unwind Your Mind will help you unwind your mind if you are feeling tense, stressed, or just want a good night’s sleep.
