Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris
Author: Ten Percent HappierSubscribed: 145,976Played: 4,680,776
Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical journalist who had a panic attack on live national television, which led him to try something he otherwise never would have considered: meditation. He went on to write the bestselling book, 10% Happier. On this show, Dan talks with eminent meditation teachers, top scientists, and even the odd celebrity. Guests include everyone from His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Brené Brown to Karamo from Queer Eye. On some episodes, Dan ventures into the deep end of the pool, covering subjects such as enlightenment and psychedelics. On other episodes, it’s science-based techniques for issues such as anxiety, productivity, and relationships. Dan's approach is seemingly modest, but secretly radical: happiness is a skill you can train, just like working your bicep in the gym. Your progress may be incremental at first, but like any good investment, it compounds over time.

This one blew my mind. Thank you both. To let go of the identification of suffering based on pain. My whole attitude just changed.
Amazing series. When I heard the Cake Incident story, I never once questioned if it was inappropriate. The fact that anyone did shows just how far woke/me too culture has unfortunately permeated society as of late.
I think we, as men, always need to improve and pump up our skills as well as our intelligence. That is why I want to recommend you to read this site https://dateher.org/ , because sometimes it does not help to learn new information for yourself, because this is a men's blog, which tells you absolutely everything about us men.
This article is really amazing. Thanks for the sharing. https://www.clover-dashboard.com/

This is a good concept and indeed, happiness is a skill you can master by practice. It happens in your mind, and if you can master your mind, you can eventually train it to be happier by not letting the negative things bother you and focus on the positives. www.dietofcommonsense.com
really good..the the sharpening the pencil concept alone ...well done.
Really important what she's saying, but don't we know all of this already by words? Namely assertiveness and passive aggression? Why do silikon Valley people always try to steal ideas from other people? We don't need more jargain. Please everyone, give yourself a favour and read Marshall Rosenberg books instead.
Maybe stop using the phrase "we are killing the planet" and instead say "we are killing everybody" or "we all die - very soon".
This is one of my favorite talks so far on this podcast. How to be able to apply mindfulness to our daily lives. Thanks Dan for sharing with us all. Keep up the great work.
I love this! Can't wait for the book.
