About 10% Happier, the book:
In his #1 New York Times bestseller, 10% Happier, ABC news anchor Dan Harris explores how his on-air panic attack in 2004 prompted him to search for a way to defang the voice in his head. He found meditation, and it's helped him be less yanked around by his emotions.
About 10% Happier, the podcast:
In his top-ranking podcast, Dan talks with smart people about whether there's anything beyond 10%. Basically, here's what the podcast is obsessed with: Can you be an ambitious person and still strive for enlightenment (whatever that means)?

While you're here, we've included some food for thought. Here's an excerpt from a recent edition of our "Meditation Weekly" newsletter with Jay Michaelson.
Vampires don’t exist, right?
Actually, they sort of do. You probably have some of them in your life. They may be co-workers, relatives, friends, or fellow parents in the PTA: they’re the people who seem to suck the life out of you, demanding more and more of your mental energy.
Some vampires thrive on conflict, even on the thinnest of pretexts. Others press your personal buttons so well, you’d think they installed them themselves. Still others – well, you know them when you see them, because you spend inordinate amounts of your brain power thinking about them.
In fact, if you meditate regularly, you’ll really know them when you see them, because they’ll probably show up – uninvited, of course – every time to you get quiet and close your eyes. One sort-of-friend of mine used to appear every time I was doing loving-kindness meditation, demanding that he get some love too!
Unfortunately, these vampires can’t be scared off with garlic. And no, you can’t drive stakes through their hearts either. But there are mindfulness-based tools for minimizing the impact they have on your life. Here are four.
1. You are the vampire slayer
The first and most important step in fighting energy-vampires, once you’ve recognized them, is to take responsibility. These people are who they are. You’re probably not going to change, educate, persuade, calm, or otherwise transform them into the person you would like them to be. Definitely do not recommend they try meditation.
And that means the onus is on you. Assuming you can’t make a vampire go away (more on that in a moment), all that you can do to minimize their impact will be work you do on yourself.
Admittedly, this bit of advice runs contrary to, I don’t know, 90% of what common sense and self-help tell you. It runs contrary to what you might want, which is for the other person to be understanding, reasonable, or whatever. It’s kind of a bummer.
But it’s also at the core of mindfulness: that while the world is not under your control, some of your mind (and heart) is. You can reduce the amount of time you spend brooding over the vampires in your life. You can reduce the amount of stress that brooding generates. But to do so, the first and most important step is to recognize that the work necessary to do that lies within.
Like it or not, the only “vampire slayer” (shout out to Buffy fans!) here is you. And the only ‘slaying’ that’s going to happen is in your own mind...

Ratings and Reviews
A brilliant configuration
I find this program to be rich with workable options and opportunities to learn about (and manage, bit by bit) my mind and entrenched mental habits. It has helped me in several ways, maybe because it gets straight to a point without any pseudo-spiritual “fluff”. It is not about stopping thought. Rather, I see it as helping users to notice and learn about one’s habitual thoughts, emotions and responses. For example I notice feeling less scattered, and less reactive since starting 10%H a year+ ago. It is a subtle vs dramatic shift.
The speaker/guides are racially and culturally diverse and have very different styles and approaches to choose from.
10% H coach Joshua has enhanced my ability to navigate the sessions with timely, personal, practical suggestions. The app keeps developing as a work in progress which I like.
10% Happier is a realistic name for this app. I hope it is increasingly available to folks who have different kinds of devices other than iPhones. I recommend it highly. Thank you Dan Harris, Joseph Goldstein, Joshua and all of you who design and teach this practical approach to meditation. You have made a very positive difference not only for me but also for others to whom I have gifted your program.
Find the time to listen to yourself. It’s worth it.
After 1 week, I am sold. Simply taking a few minutes out of my day to reflect and focus my thoughts has made for an interesting experience. When I first started, I couldn’t see past the restlessness I felt inside; I found myself focusing too deeply on the back and forth rocking sensation I felt as my heart beat, and was surprised by how much motion was still occurring beyond my control as I intentionally attempted to be still and clear my mind. Today, I am finding myself more aware of many other sensations going on inside me — the rocking motion, I can still feel but only as I focus my awareness on my heart beating instead of my nostrils flaring or my wandering thoughts. I’ve been so impressed with meditation, I’ve convinced my wife to give it a try as well, and now we both plan time before bed to be guided through the basics of meditation. Now she’s hooked as well! I know this is only the beginning, but I’m very excited to see where this leads. If I can feel this way after only a week, I can only assume the benefits of making it a regular practice. So very glad I was introduced to this app, and I highly recommended it!
Get app for skeptics and others
Love this app. I’ve tried to start meditating many times, but quickly became bored or wondered if I was doing it right. Having a teacher guide you through a meditation helped me begin a practice. I started with the free options as a resource to help me fall asleep. After my success with that, I was open to try some of the other meditations offered, purchased the app and was pleasantly surprised that I was able to fit an additional meditation or two into my day. After a short amount of time, I was able to notice a change in my approach to the frustrations and stress in my life. Only one recommendation - consider developing an app for iPads too. Would be a nice addition for people - like me - who use the guided meditations for a more restful sleep. Other than that, this is a exceptionally good app, and I would recommend it for anyone who has been frustrated with the process of meditation. I’d also suggest listening to Dan Harris’ weekly podcast to hear how others fit meditation into their lives.
