Hello, everyone. Lately I have been listening to more podcasts, and there is one in particular I’d like to suggest you check out. It is an excellent resource for tips on how to get your life more in balance, before the imbalances take over. The podcast is called Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris, and its free and is offered in most places where you get your podcasts.
Dan Harris was an accomplished journalist who’s life had become the epitome of imbalance. He was working endless hours, and the total focus on his career led to a developing crisis of burn out and drug abuse. This was not just something that was effecting him, but it was damaging his relationships as well. The culmination of this problem manifested itself when, during a live broadcast on national television, he experienced a full on panic attack. This complete meltdown then led Dan to reevaluate his life, and to consider how mindfulness could help him rebuild himself and his relationships. It was at this point that he decided to develop a podcast to help others avoid the massive meltdown that he experienced. He enlisted the help of experts in the field of health and mindfulness to create a resource for others so that they might incorporate some of these practices into their own lives.
Some of the areas that are explored are mindfulness, relationships, health and fitness, food issues, Buddhism, social connections and meditation just to name a few.
In addition to the podcast, Dan developed and app called Ten Percent. It offers enlightening interviews with experts in an array of topics. These are relatively short blocks of content followed by a guided daily meditation to help break some of the unhealthy patterns that may have built up in your life. The first thirty days of the app are free, and then you have the option to purchase a membership for $100. This is an investment that is well worth the expense.
So, you may not have experienced the epic meltdown that Dan had, but most people feel there are tweaks that need to be made in our lives to help us to live in a more loving and intentional way. Check it out...you will be amazed at all the ways it could help you elevate your life and experiences in our challenging world.
