The app is very much in alignment with Dan Harris’ books on the topic in philosophy and approach; if you’ve enjoyed them you’re probably going to like the app a lot. I’m a beginning meditator, and am finding the sessions to be clear, positive and encouraging - and the coaches are all great. There are courses dealing with many of the things that beset us in life, and a number of shorter sessions as well. The one thing that I wish was added is a continuing refresh of additional 1 minute meditations. It’s a very stealthy - and successful- approach to luring you into another 5-10 minutes of meditating. BTW, I think the style of coaches is really important. I’ve been using the Calm app - for sleep stories - but am unable to use most of their meditation sessions; I’m so put off by most of the meditation coaches’ intonation - the breathy ‘I’m smiling beatifically from my trip to the ashram’ kind of voice. I know I should be more accepting, but I just start gritting my teeth. The one exception was Jeff Warren, who’s terrific - and he’s on the 10 app as well. I actually signed up for 10 app partly because he’s one of the coaches. I was really pleased to find that all of the coaches bring a sense of being kind, supportive and pretty grounded in the real world. Overall, it’s very worthwhile.
It makes meditation so easy. I find the videos interesting and the meditations have just the right amount of structure to make this process attainable!!!!
Little by little, from skepticism to full awareness this can help to develop a new inner force. Try it. Little by little.
I strongly recommend 10% Happier. It is relatable, usable, and realistic. Be happy - walk toward the embrace
I found this app through the 10 percent happier podcast and it’s had the most positive impact on my day-to-day life and overall well-being. The meditations are excellent and the teachers are very knowledgeable! Very satisfied.
I just stumbled across this and I’m so glad I did! I think the teachers are spot on and very talented. Dan Harris is the glue and perfect as the moderator. I have learned a great deal from these teachers. I am truly 10% (or much more) happier. A big thanks to everyone who put this together.
At last 10% Happier- a site for people like me who don’t have to have background music or any other distractions. Dan has meditation courses. I’m learning about good habits from a psychologist and meditation teacher-so I can use my whole brain. I also find single topics that are a quick way to get more peace. Every night I listen to a teacher who helps me to sleep. So far I have logged close to 800 mindful days so you know 10% Happier tops my chart.
... THIS is the app that helped me develop a meditation habit. (The “meditation for fidgety skeptics” bit really spoke to me.) And for that I am very, very grateful.
Meditation for me has always been a bit of a struggle, visualizing me on mountain top or in a field; these never worked well for me. This meditation program follows a more psychological / intellectual approach that taps into soul, body, and spiritual connection. Highly recommend.
