Description

Headspace is meditation made simple. And with our Alexa skill, it’s even simpler to build a meditation practice that fits into your daily schedule. Enable this skill for access to a new guided meditation every day, plus a sleep exercise to help you wind down. Connect to your Headspace account for even more meditations, including our Basics course which teaches you the fundamentals of meditation and mindfulness.


HOW DOES IT WORK?
Just ask your Alexa skill to talk to Headspace. We’ll have a fresh meditation for you every day, and a sleep exercise for when you’re ready to wind down.

You can say…
- Alexa, open Headspace
- Alexa, tell Headspace I’m ready to meditate
- Alexa, ask Headspace for today’s meditation
- Alexa, tell Headspace I want to wind down
- Alexa, ask Headspace to help me fall asleep


HOW DO I CONNECT TO MY HEADSPACE ACCOUNT?
To connect to your Headspace account, just say “connect my account” on the Alexa skill. A prompt will appear, asking you to sign in. In addition to today’s meditation and a sleep exercise, you’ll have access to the Basics pack which teaches the fundamentals of meditation. And if you’re a Headspace subscriber, you can continue your practice both through your device and the Headspace app. Plus, you’ll have access to our brand new experience called a Sleepcast, which uses a mixture of sound and visualization to create the ideal conditions for healthy, restful sleep.

You can say…
- Alexa, ask Headspace to connect my account


WHY SHOULD I MEDITATE?
Meditation can help you stress less, focus more, and be happier. The proof is in the science. These published studies show the impact Headspace can have on both your health and your relationships.

- 10 days of Headspace resulted in a 14% decrease in stress*
