And if you are still reading, here’s a snippet from the latest “Ten Percent Weekly” newsletter:

~~~Excerpted from “The Healthy Kind of Self-Doubt,” by Jay Michaelson~~~

Last week, I was recording psychologist, Dr. Luana Marques, for Teacher Talks, the podcast I host in the Ten Percent Happier app. Although it wasn’t the main point of her talk, a couple of lines in a script of hers really jumped out at me:

“You’re not good enough!” “You are unlovable.” “You will never accomplish your dreams.”

Although we think we are being rational, the reality is that these thoughts are coming from our emotional brain, which is sensing danger. Shifting our perspective means really understanding that when our brain is in fight-or-flight, what we see in front of us and what we say to ourselves may not actually be reality.

This simple paragraph expresses, I think, a central insight of mindfulness: that it’s not about repressing or silencing our inner-critical voices, but learning not to trust them quite so much.

On one level, Dr. Luana’s point is pretty straightforward: when we’re under stress, we think, say, and do things that we would never do if we were calmer and more centered. That may seem obvious, but actually changing our behavior is a lot harder than simply hearing someone talk about it. Behavior change takes work – like the work of meditation.

In meditation, you can see these patterns directly, in real-time, and you can see how they cause you to get stuck. For example, you might be hungry, tired, or restless, and you can watch your mind spin insane stories about you, meditation, life, the universe, and everything. Or maybe you’re meditating and a traumatic memory arises, and you can feel your body and mind re-triggered. Perhaps you hear the voice of the inner critic, like in the quotations above, and feel the pain that it causes you.

If you see this again and again and again and again, eventually the mind learns – the brain learns – not to take the bait so much. You learn to become a little more skeptical of every thought that pops into your head, especially the ones that are cruel to yourself or others. You develop the healthy kind of self-doubt – not doubting your self-worth, but doubting your opinions about your self-worth…

Editors’ Choice

Ten Percent Happier is specifically geared toward newcomers and skeptics, like its founder—TV anchor and best-selling author Dan Harris—used to be. It uses straight talk and a sense of humor to help you focus on sleeping better, reducing stress, and boosting concentration.

10% Happier is an understatement

I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder two years ago, and was told that I’ve probably been suffering from it much longer than I realized. Fast forward to 2020 - I became a first-time mom at 38 years old, suffered from postpartum depression, and just when I was starting to find my footing, the world was immediately hurled into the COVID-19 pandemic. The stress wreaked havoc on my body. Everyday I felt like I was physically drowning; my chest was cramped, my muscles ached, I was permanently exhausted but couldn’t sleep, and my brain was foggy. I tried taking anxiety medication and it made me extremely nauseous, which further triggered my anxiety. I thought I was doomed; I felt so helpless. Then I read Dan Harris’s book, 10% Happier, and I figured if meditation helped him, maybe it would help me. Now I use the app daily, in conjunction with a daily routine that involves yoga, reasonably healthy eating, supplements as recommended by my physician, and continued communication and collaboration with my support net of friends and family. It’s part of a bigger picture, and it has made a world of difference. Physically, the chest tightness and muscular tension have decreased significantly. And mentally I find myself much more resilient in the face of stress, especially the kind induced by the intrusive irrational fears that come with GAD. Thank you to the 10% Happier team. In my case, “10% Happier” would be an understatement.

The best $99 I’ve ever spent.

I dare say if you were able to quantify how much “bang for your buck” you can get out of any app out there - This has to be #1. I can’t even begin to describe how effective this little gem has been at helping me learn the basics of meditation, manage my stress, learn more about myself as a human and increase my overall well being. I purchased this in May of 2019, it is now January 2020 and I will without a doubt renew next years subscription. I have a very stressful but rewarding job and was in the verge of burnout. Now, I feel in control and have been more productive than ever. I just found that taking time each morning for the practice lead to a better day. I am now taking a beginners meditation class with a group at a Dharma center and it’s lead me down a path I didn’t even fully understand I needed and could use but I’m glad to be on it. The hardest part for me was getting in the habit of using this daily. Luckily they have SO MANY ways to integrate meditation and mindfulness into your daily life and tips to help you do it. The videos are wonderfully produced, sound quality is top notch, the teachers are very knowledgeable diverse and insightful. They are also funny and relatable and not just all a bunch of “new-agey woo-woo!” I have my favorites and you will too. This was the best app investment I’ve ever made. I highly recommend.
