10% Happier

5 Jun

I just finished reading 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works–A True Story, by Dan Harris, a book suggested to me by my brother.

This is a great book, a case for meditation without the hype. There is evidence that meditation has real benefits and Harris does a good job of explaining how he came to the practice and why you should give it a try. The book also includes an interesting look into the office politics of television news

    This post from Peak Memory says virtually allI would want to say, except that I haven’t actually read the book, but really like the no-nonsense and pragmatic approach that Dan Harris takes in his video.
    We all suffer from the voice in the head- and this video/book confirms what I have long known, that meditation can moderate that significantly.
    Enjoy!
