Training Yourself to Monotask, by Craig Hase
Did you know multitasking is the devil? It's true. And there's research to prove it.
A 2009 study out of Stanford University found that multitaskers— those who work with several streams of information at once—fall short at attention tasks, memory tasks, and completing tasks.
Not only that, according to that same research, people who think they're great multitaskers actually score worse on multitasking trials than the rest of us.
Since then, other studies have found that multitasking lowers your IQ, short-circuits your brain’s efficiency, and makes it super tough to learn new things. (There is some bright side: some recent research suggests that it can sometimes boost creativity.)
In other words, the more people multitask, the worse they are at . . . well, almost everything. So multitasking is bad. But why?
There’s a part of your brain at the front of your skull called the prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal cortex does a lot of stuff, but one of its primary responsibilities is helping you direct attention.
Now, the prefrontal cortex has a left side and a right side. And both those sides talk to each other, and talk to the rest of your brain.
When you concentrate on a single task, the paired sides of your prefrontal cortex can work together like two trained dancers in a beautiful waltz.
But when you do different things—like texting and driving, or emailing while writing a report—the left and right sides of your prefrontal cortex have to split: the left side works on one thing, the right side works on another.
Neither task gets the attention it needs. And we end up with car accidents and bad reports.
Worse still, though, is that the more we multitask, the more we train the brain to be a scattered mess….

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!
