100% Happier

Thank you for all you do to shine a light on what I call “real neuroses” and how to deal with it on the daily. We can never underestimate what hearing and sharing our experiences can do to help us make sense of our monkey minds. May you go from strength to strength.

Simply put: required for living

Having waded through many techniques and approaches to mindfulness, awareness, living gently, I say with some confidence that this app gives you the best access-the most direct path-with the highest quality results. That’s mainly a function of presenting the highest quality teachers in a format that’s easy and compelling to use. At least ten percent happier (and more present, aware) simply will result. Few things are as certain or simple.

Meditation for Seniors

I am in my seventies and read 10% Happier after hearing Dan Harris on The Minimalists podcast. I recently discovered the Ten Percent Happier podcast and have started listening to it and doing some of the meditations in it.

The insights presented by guests really are life changing in a very approachable way. As a lifelong “worrier” and type A lawyer before retirement, learning about mindfulness and meditation has made a big shift in my life.
