While we have your attention... Here's a little food for thought from the most recent "Tech Sanity" edition of our "Meditation Weekly" newsletter with Jay Michaelson.
**Smartphones: they’re miracles… and monsters.**
We all know that our phones are increasingly indispensable, for staying in touch with family and friends to ordering pizza to, I don’t know, refinancing your mortgage. And yet we also all know how addictive they can be. (If you don’t know already, several studies have confirmed this.)
Fortunately, there are several realistic, achievable ways to regain your tech-sanity and take back your life from your phone. Here's one for 'before you power on.'
Let’s say your phone is in your pocket. You’re about to reach for it. Are you aware of what’s happening at that moment? As you build your brain’s capacity for mindfulness, you get better and better at noticing the small, subtle movements of mind at moments like these -- moments that precede taking action. So, if you’ve been practicing mindfulness, you might hear a little voice in your head (the good kind) asking “huh, what is going on right now?” Or maybe “huh, what am I feeling right now?” Or, “huh, do I really want to do this or am I just habitually fidgeting in a way that actually will make me feel worse rather than better?” Depending on how assertive your inner voice sounds.
In that mindful moment, you can “check in” with your thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations. For example, I might notice that I’m bored, and trying to keep my mind occupied instead of just relaxing. Alternatively, I might notice that I’m hate-checking Facebook to see what that person I can’t stand (but secretly envy) is up to. Or I may well notice, “hey, that’s fine, I’m just in the mood to browse Instagram for a bit.”
You can do this without being a master meditator, of course. Just set the intention to pay attention, as the somewhat corny saying goes. When you’re reaching for your phone, just “check in” in this way. No judgment. Just curiosity. What’s going on right now? How am I feeling? Is this conscious or compulsive?
Once again, it’s not that the answer to “why am I doing this” is always bad. Sometimes you’re checking your phone because you’re interested in the news, or you’re keeping up with a friend, or you’re just relaxing and having fun. That’s fine. But if you give this practice a try, you’ll also see that a lot of other times you’d really rather relax.

Ratings and Reviews
Meditation for busy lives.
My favorite meditation app!!!
After trying numerous times to build a meditation practice, first on my own and then through apps such as Headspace, I can say that 10% Happier is the best fit for me and I would definitely recommend it to my friends. I’ve had the app almost one month and have done at least one meditation per day, and usually one before falling asleep. I love the variety of coaches and the varying lengths and themes of the meditations. Having a meditation tracker is a nice reminder of how much time I’ve put into this practice, and after 537 minutes I’m happy to say that it has improved the quality of my life and daily routine, and this is just week 3.5. It’s particularly helpful to have different types of practices for different mind states like difficult emotions, gratitude and winding down for sleep. I’m also enjoying the courses like Meditation for Skeptics. I also would recommend this app for people who might have had a meditation practice and then trailed off. Ten years ago I was an avid meditator, so this time around getting back into it I had all sorts of frustrations because I was in such a different place. I found this particular app to be helpful for such a situation, as the quality, positivity and variety of meditations and courses allowed me to ease in and have a lighter heart about the whole thing. Highly recommend!
This app has enriched my life already.
After several tries with apps... Headspace (which granted helped me) Calm (Nice running water sounds to sleep too) Breethe (I don’t even remember) I found 10% happier... for skeptics. I am not a skeptic... but the way Dan approaches meditation... makes me laugh. I LOVE the genuineness of him... and through him, he has found all these teachers that are real. No frills... no fake calming voices or stories... real meditation teachers with lifetimes behind them of wisdom. And Dan... I admire him so much... because on a spiritual level... he is being a REAL REPORTER. The way reporters are supposed to report... not on an agenda, but on something so worthwhile to the human family... and he genuinely loves and investigates this... and through him I/we learn... and what a service.
In just a few weeks I have noticed a difference in my brain. Less reactive. More able to just notice moments... in short... I’m happier. I love doing a meditation 3 times a day. I’m not saying this is my only reason for being happier. But its probably just 10% of my total happier state lately. Worth the money? Yes. It was worth it from the first moment when Joseph Goldstein changed my life and mind in his interviews. Very thankful and impressed with the content and genuineness. It makes me laugh... and learn... and be calm and stable.
