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)?

The Trouble with Gratitude
By Hila Ratzabi
I’m rushing down the street, despite the pleasant weather and flowers blooming. No one else is on the street — I live in a peaceful, quiet, small city, yet I’m hurrying and stressed; I have somewhere to go.
And then I see the old man. He suddenly appears at the end of the block, turns the corner, inches forward as he leans his weight on his walker, lifting one leg slowly, slowly, then the other. My face softens, I immediately slow down, embarrassed by my hurrying.
A rush of thoughts and emotions flood me: “Oh, look at that man. Walking so slowly, he can barely move, while I’m practically running down the block. I should slow down. I should be grateful. After all, I’m healthy. My legs are working perfectly fine, well enough to get me where I’m going, and fast.”
But wait a minute. Am I really being grateful if what I’m thinking is, “Boy, am I glad I’m not that guy”? If, instead of appreciating my miraculously functioning body, and maybe cultivating some compassion for the stranger before me, I’m actually feeling pity for the poor man, shame at my energetic strides, and embarrassment at how hurried I must have appeared?
This was not the first time I’ve had trouble with gratitude. In fact, I’ve tried and “failed” at gratitude many times.
Here’s the problem: When I start to contemplate all the things I'm genuinely grateful for, I immediately fear they'll disappear. Because one day I will be that old person walking down the street. These legs won't always work so well. One day I'll lose all the wonderful things and people I love. Ouch. No wonder I’m covering up that fear with pity and shame—reality is too terrifying to admit.
To make matters worse, I’m just a tad superstitious that acknowledging the good in my life will somehow jinx it and bring me bad luck. I know, it doesn’t make sense, but it’s true...

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!

A heart-felt thank you
This is wonderful, possibly the most positive change in my life this year. I have briefly tried other popular meditation apps, and I still think 10% Happier is the best. I love the lessons - giving me a sense of progress and guiding me to think about specific issue areas, like relationship and focus, I also use the individual guided recordings all the time for sleep, or when I find some time to meditate during the day. I appreciate that you get to know the names, voices and styles of the teachers - Joseph, Oren... - because meditation shouldn’t be an anonymous, faceless thing. Being aware of the teachers make me appreciate this as an individual journey that we each have to travel alone, but with each other’s help. I came to appreciate Dan’s interactions with them too because his self-deprecating humor makes me feel that I don’t need to be in a rush and even the most fidgety and skeptical of us can get this too. I feel very lucky to find this as my introduction to meditations. The app is very thoughtful and well-designed, I would certainly recommend it to others!
