Is Your Mind an Amusement Park?
By Grace Livingston
When some people hear about meditation, they may imagine that it’s a cool, calm chill-out with no distracting thoughts or feelings disturbing the Zen.
And then, since that’s not what anyone actually experiences, lots of people become convinced that they can’t meditate because their minds are so busy and distracted.
The truth is, though, distractions happen! Whether out in the world or seated in meditation, the mind will pretty much always find something to do - and it’s not always going to do the thing we might hope.
What can you do?
A lot of it is just a matter of perspective – for example, whether you think of your mind as an amusement park or a museum.
You’re probably familiar with your mind’s amusement park. Distracting thoughts are like roller coasters – sometimes I’ll eagerly run over to one, and without a second thought, strap myself in for the ride. Some of these thought rides are exhilarating, and I can get caught on them for long stretches of time, only to come up for air feeling a little dizzy, but mostly thrilled.
Others are actually unpleasant – loop-dee-loops of painful memories, anger, or fear. My mind has a way of circling back again and again to mistakes I’ve made, like missing an important work deadline or losing my cool in an argument with my partner. These are not fun rides to be stuck on.
Then there are games beckoning me to play. Step right up! Take your shot! Oh well, not this time. Want to play again? For me, planning thoughts have this addictive quality: what I need to do today, what I’ll likely eat tonight, how many pairs of pants I’ll pack for a vacation that’s three weeks away. Even though they seem so practical at first, I can’t actually fulfill these plans in the moment, so they’re really just mental noise. Winning these games is rare.
Still other times, I’m like a little kid, racing from ride to ride, thought to thought, double fisting french fries and cotton candy, trying to win a giant stuffed bear. It’s exhausting!
Imagine, though, relating to these thoughts and feelings not as amusement park rides, but as exhibits in a museum…

Ratings and Reviews
A brilliant configuration
I find this program to be rich with workable options and opportunities to learn about (and manage, bit by bit) my mind and entrenched mental habits. It has helped me in several ways, maybe because it gets straight to a point without any pseudo-spiritual “fluff”. It is not about stopping thought. Rather, I see it as helping users to notice and learn about one’s habitual thoughts, emotions and responses. For example I notice feeling less scattered, and less reactive since starting 10%H a year+ ago. It is a subtle vs dramatic shift.
The speaker/guides are racially and culturally diverse and have very different styles and approaches to choose from.
10% H coach Joshua has enhanced my ability to navigate the sessions with timely, personal, practical suggestions. The app keeps developing as a work in progress which I like.
10% Happier is a realistic name for this app. I hope it is increasingly available to folks who have different kinds of devices other than iPhones. I recommend it highly. Thank you Dan Harris, Joseph Goldstein, Joshua and all of you who design and teach this practical approach to meditation. You have made a very positive difference not only for me but also for others to whom I have gifted your program.

So Worth It!!!
The 10% Happier book was recommended to me as I was struggling deeply with anxiety and depression. I started reading the book but, as I am an extremely slow reader, at a certain point in the book (once you realize that it’s meditation that makes Mr. Harris 10% Happier), I wanted to know how to utilize it in my life. At that point, the thought of being left alone in silence in my own head seemed like a terrifying idea. “I already spend too much time in there,” I thought. However, I decided to do the 7 day free trial and see what it was all about. I was told that this app might be better received by men, but I’m a young woman that prefers this app over others that I was told would be geared more toward women. I LOVE the fact that every session has an intro video for the person to hear about the meditation they’re about to practice. I’m so happy to report that the hype in my head that this would be a scary experience, was in fact wrong. This app has become my GO TO for relaxation, acceptance of my feelings, and the tool to help me process my thoughts and emotions. It seems a little spendy at first, but when you break that year subscription down by month, it’s really not bad and also, worth every penny!
Find the time to listen to yourself. It’s worth it.
After 1 week, I am sold. Simply taking a few minutes out of my day to reflect and focus my thoughts has made for an interesting experience. When I first started, I couldn’t see past the restlessness I felt inside; I found myself focusing too deeply on the back and forth rocking sensation I felt as my heart beat, and was surprised by how much motion was still occurring beyond my control as I intentionally attempted to be still and clear my mind. Today, I am finding myself more aware of many other sensations going on inside me — the rocking motion, I can still feel but only as I focus my awareness on my heart beating instead of my nostrils flaring or my wandering thoughts. I’ve been so impressed with meditation, I’ve convinced my wife to give it a try as well, and now we both plan time before bed to be guided through the basics of meditation. Now she’s hooked as well! I know this is only the beginning, but I’m very excited to see where this leads. If I can feel this way after only a week, I can only assume the benefits of making it a regular practice. So very glad I was introduced to this app, and I highly recommended it!
