Headspace | Meditation | The Noting technique

Noting is one of eight techniques used within the Headspace app to help you train your mind. Rather than trying to create calm by stamping out thoughts or feelings, this simple strategy helps us to acknowledge them before returning to the object of focus.

If you enjoy this animation, and you’d like to learn how to meditate, you can get started for free, by downloading the Headspace app.


Learn to meditate in a few minutes a day with the Headspace app. It delivers guided meditations based on teachings that Andy Puddicombe, Co-founder of Headspace, learned during the ten years he spent studying meditation and mindfulness in monasteries across Asia.

The first series, Basics, is completely free. As the name suggests, it will teach you the basics of meditation and mindfulness. After that, via subscription, Headspace offers hundreds of hours of guided meditations on subjects ranging from Stress to Sleep. Themed meditation packs are supported by a host of animations.

Along with daily meditations, Headspace also offers On-The-Go exercises for users short on time and SOS sessions to support subscribers in those meltdown moments.

  1. What the fuck IS the object of focus?!?… Is a mind anything BUT distraction?!!! I think NOT. Soul or Spirit is the best friend anyone could ever have the good fortune of being in touch with. The mind is and forever always will be LOST. Come to terms with this, or not! IT WON'T MATTER!
    Anyhow, what I'm telling you NOW (as you are NOW reading) is that
    Your mind really means FUCK ALL! Just as your body means FUCK ALL ! ! ! Try to contribute something that is positive for someone else in this lifetime, and your spirit/soul will not be lost to yourself like your body and mind will eventually be…
    That's what I know to be MOST important. Hopefully someone might understand my word here and become a LITTLE LESS lost. : ) peace &love!

  2. I have a really hard time telling the difference between Thinking and Feeling in this sense, and then the act of trying to figure it out can be distracting. I find all the distractions I’m noticing are thinking, but then I question it. Any advice?
    I’ve been using the app on and off for 3 years.

  3. This animation is soooooo adorable, I just can't!!! :3 And what about the little brain with the feather? Aaaaaa so cute 💕💕💕💕☺☺☺

  4. If you want to advance your practice as quickly, but without going overboard and disrupting your concentration, shouldn't you try to note everything you can without breaking your flow or concentration or invoking the narrator etc? Unless you are doing concentration practice specifically in which you would gently return your focus to your meditation object, and not worry about noting? even though really the awareness of something to note should theoretically eventually become synonymous with noting. As in feeling that tingle in your toe eventually becomes noting because really that feeling is you being aware of the sensation. Same with thoughts.

  5. Im going throw a lot atm but this vids are very slowly helping me but there are things in my head that i want to forget how would i do that ? Some one pint me in the right direcsion pls sorry my spelling is not that good
