I spent many months doing only the free meditations until they had a 21 day challenge in January. This allowed you to experience all the perks and was a game changer for me! Worth every penny for sure. Do yourself a huge favor and dive in. 😊❤️
As a skeptic of meditation, I was initially put off by what seemed like a rather short trial followed by a $100 a year subscription with no monthly option. However, I then found that you can access the content in Greatest Hits and New and Noteworthy for free, which is actually quite generous! I plan to explore these for a while, as there is plenty of content, and will certainly subscribe if I manage to make a habit of this!
I’ve just started meditating ( 22 days in a row so far) and though it’s difficult with my monkey mind I’m slowly improving. Some days better than others. Had foot surgery last week and I believe the mindfulness sessions have helped me deal with the pain! I’m taking less pain killers than I did when I had a previous foot surgery in February. Thanks for providing such a great app!
I so appreciate the work of the 10% happier team. During the pandemic, this app has been the way that I have benefited from a virtual sangha (since traveling to a retreat or meeting with others has been out of the question). The structure of courses which have classes that include a short video followed by a guided meditation and an update on progress, is a winning approach. My only suggestion for Dan would be to consider including a Buddhist corner (an idea he has discussed aloud at times — I believe on his podcast) which would allow new practitioners a chance to realize even more change in their lives, through the inclusion of a discussion of Buddhist ethics (think eightfold-path). Thank you so much for this wonderful work and for providing it to me (an educator) for free for 6 months during this crisis.
The world has definitely changed, and being an essential worker has taken on new meanings and demands. Physical, mental and emotional demands. The fact that this app exists and I can ise it to ground myself again and keep a focus on what is important is so overwhelming helpful I will never be able to thank you enough. 5 minutes a day - and already I can feel a change within me. THANK YOU!
I work in healthcare and have taken advantage of your generous free trial. I can’t thank you enough for the gift! I have found the app immensely helpful in recalibrating mental well-being on tough days and in bolstering my baseline resilience during this pandemic. I would say the free app has turned out to be my personal “silver lining” during the pandemic. Although I have dabbled in mindfulness and meditation a little bit over the years, neither really “clicked” with me, even after trying other related apps. This app is different. The variety of teaching formats has made a crucial difference. For instance, the videos that show how meditation and mindfulness can change the brain really helped me, the ADD skeptic, better understand and accept the practice of meditation as legit. I also love the way Dan interacts with his guests and brings his personal experiences to the table. I have found the meditations that have science-related informational nuggets sprinkled throughout them the most helpful, I think because they engage multiple aspects of my brain, thus holding my attention better. I also really like being able to listen to the app’s “Talks,” as an alternative to meditating. I have learned so much!
As a child and adolescent psychiatrist I often suggest my patients try various forms of age-appropriate meditation. This will be one I will use with my older teens and their parents. It helps to have the intro from Dan Harris who is so relatable
I was looking for a program before the pandemic and my sister sent me this. I’m so excited about being able to finally control my own anxiety
I hate paying for apps 🙄 would’ve gotten 5 stars if it were free 🤷🏽♀️
