Great Finds in Reading!
Now, if you listened to the entire podcast, you heard me mention some of the books and mentors who have been part of this journey for me. Many of these books never crossed my mind two years ago. In fact I would have been running in the opposite direction had someone mentioned meditation. However, since the meditation and mindfulness have become a huge component of my personal shift, this book was a gift in finding.
“10% Happier- How I Tamed The Voice In My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, And Found Self-Help That Actually Works- A True Story” by Dan Harris. I may have felt a kinship with Dan since his background is also in the world of television. But on a much larger scale as an Emmy- Award winning anchor and correspond for ABC News amongst other things.
He puts a great spin on the inner voice in our heads. The one who always has something to say and usually derails us from our potential. He talks about his initial thoughts about meditation. Why he, like so many of us, fought trying it for so long. How its changed him for the better, rewiring our brains and so much more.
If you have someone who has started meditating or who has talked about starting, I think its a great purchase 🙂
Plus he now hosts one of the top podcasts in the world called…you guessed it…The Ten Percent Happier Podcast 🙂
