If someone asked you how your life has improved with the daily practice of meditation, would you say your life was better? And if so, how much better? Dan Harris states “its about 10% better”. This was the quantifiable figure thrown around upon beginning his meditation practice but it doesn’t stop there “it gets more – the return gets more and more.”
10% Happier is a true captivating humorous, thrilling and enlightening story of Dan Harris, a man who was both sceptical and curious about the practice of daily meditation. This book is about his journey for a solution to self-help and enlightenment exploring this with leaders in this field such as Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Sharon Salzberg and Mark Epstein. I likened Dan’s story to a thriller, I couldn’t put this book down for I found myself asking the same question as he was asking ‘is there such a thing as true enlightenment?’
10% Happier isn’t just a self-help book, its a book that brings you into the world of a man who was working his way up the journalist ladder only to find himself climbing and falling due to the lack of self trust and the ability to hush the voices in his head – the constant dialogue of self criticism.
I loved this book, I laughed, I cried and I was motivated to keep exploring my journey to help tame the voices in my head. Another highly recommended book for your bookshelf whether you believe in the practice of daily mediation or not.
