    Struggling with thoughts and feelings you're not used to can be tough. Sometimes it can be scary too. But there is an easy-to-learn skill called mindfulness, which has been scientifically proven to reduce feelings of fear, stress and anxiety. It's even the focus of ongoing research into managing symptoms of psychosis.

    Mindfulness is often taught in group sessions over several months, but there are also ways to learn it yourself, in your own time, with as little as 10 minutes practice per day. Headspace is a website and mobile app service which serves up a no-nonsense approach to mindfulness called Take10. It's free to download, free to use and you can do it as many times as you like. And if you're feeling really inspired, there's even an affordable subscription programme, which looks at everything from sleep, to focus, to relationships. Either way, Take10 is the place to begin.
