This series takes the intimidation out of meditation for mindfulness-newbies. It's primarily geared towards adults, though open-minded tweens and teens will also enjoy learning tools to help them through the stresses of life. Headspace's approach to meditation is modern and hip, and the show reflects that with the fantastic animation and the fresh-sounding music throughout. Puddicombe's narration is relatable and friendly. The educational content at the beginning of each episode may win over even the most skeptical teens. It explains how mindfulness meditation is not all woo-woo mysticism but has been confirmed by modern science as being hugely beneficial to practitioners. The audio-focused meditations themselves are great basic introductions to different styles of meditation. While Puddicombe suggests viewers close their eyes during his narration, a mesmerizing visual meditation of sorts plays alongside his narration.

If parents have been interested in getting into mediation but haven't been sure how, this series is a great place to start; families can learn about the benefits of mindfulness and practice meditating together. Or, parents of too-cool teenagers can Jedi mind trick them and tell them the series is lame and definitely won't help with stress, and they shouldn't watch.
