I was adamant that I would not be good at meditation because I could not imagine slowing the madhouse of squirrels in my brain for even a moment. Ten Percent Happier showed me both that I can slow them down and that being good at meditation isn’t really the point. Taking the time to be guided through “now” is plenty good enough. I started with a TPH challenge during a time of crisis - I love the lesson/context setting that proceeds those meditations but now do a morning “daily” meditation plus a sleep meditation each night to shut down. As a lifelong insomniac, I have to be honest and admit the shut down helps. I’ve tried other apps but this is my preference. Oh yeah, I read Dan Harris’ book too.
I’ve purchased every meditation app known to human but this is the best by far! I utilize this app every day.
10% Happier meditations have helped me to go from a 10 in Anxiety to learning how to control it - at least a 2. I’m really working on learning how to accept myself - like myself. Meditation has given me a better perspective on how to manage my emotions and stress.
Thank you. Wonderful. Timely; to me.
Last year they offered their material free to healthcare persons. At the time the world was stressful and I started trying it out. What I have found is extremely helpful and great material to help me through the pandemic, elections and life in general. I have recommended to friends and family and will continue to do so.
I love the variety of teAchers, the skepticism with which they approach each concept, the useful courses and the challenges. Using the app daily has had a huge positive affect on my life. Dare I say I’m eve 20% happier?
This app has saved my life, my relationship with my partner, strengthened my relationship with my two beautiful daughters and most of all taught me to ignore the the unforgiving voices in my head that put me down and basically beat myself up all day. I have ADD and my focus has improved to the point that I now can will away feet cramps when driving instead of stopping the car and going crazy trying to make it go away. I now can have a conversation with my partner without judgment or suggestions and hear what is being said and for the first time in my life I feel heard from my loved ones. I am a 55 year old single mom of 2 ( who are grown, self sufficient independent women now) they are my pride and joy, so now I can work on me for the first time in years. This application was referred to me by my friend and I thank her for it daily. She is also my meditation buddy, we hold each other accountable. I am proud to say I am at 86 days of never missing a day of meditation. For me this is huge and I thank you 10% happier for my growth within myself. Thank you Dan, Joseph, Jeff and Alexis, and all the other wonderful meditators who I love for all your amazing words. 🥰 Susan Griffin from Florida
The theme song is trite, annoying, derivative, too fast, too loud, and takes away from all that is good about the app. Dan needs to take voice lessons from Oren Jay Sofer and Joseph Goldstein. He uses the same voice to lead a meditation as he does to interview someone. He needs to use his inside voice instead.
I love this meditation tool, all the teachers are incredible and I feel as if I learn something about myself during each session ❤️ The meditations are absolutely wonderful as as are the guided courses!
Try it. I’ve used 10% happier for three years. It got me through a very rough time in my life. Over time, it has helped me find ease and taught me how to respond instead of react to life’s stresses. The teachers are all great.
