I've dealt with occasionally intense anxiety since I was 11 years old, so that's an accomplishment.
After eight months, I still look forward to each new pack, but I've found that there is a lot of overlap among the exercises.
The gamification of Headspace is both a plus and a minus.
The plot was an attempt to blow up the House of Lords in London on 5 November 1605, in order to restore a Catholic head of state.
The use of a mask on an effigy has long roots as part of Guy Fawkes Night celebrations.
The variety has kept me looking forward to trying new things within the app.
Each pack lasts either 10 or 30 days, and you choose if you want each session to last 10, 15, or 20 minutes. There are five categories: Foundation, Health, Relationships, Performance, and Headspace Pro (less guidance during the exercise).
Each selection in the category has a fundamental exercise attached to it.
For example, I'm currently in the Creativity pack from the Performance category, and it includes an exercise where I make an effort to focus on my breathing for a few moments before letting my attention drift.
In 1958 the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks on Bonfire Night was mentioned during a debate on the Criminal Law (Onus of Proof) Amendment Bill in the Parliament of Western Australia as an example of harmless and excusable (though technically unlawful) possession of a face mask at night. So, if tonight anyone is found wearing a Guy Fawkes mask I, as Minister for Police, will see that he is duly excused." The comic book series V for Vendetta, which started in 1982, "centers on a vigilante's efforts to destroy an authoritarian government in a dystopian future United Kingdom." Its main character wears a Guy Fawkes mask, and in the climax of the 2005 film adaptation, thousands of protesters adopt the same costume as they march on Parliament.
