Dan Really is The Man

For the past few days, I’ve been contemplating 10% Happier by ABC News anchor Dan Harris. It’s the true story of his journalistic journey into the fringe of American religious culture and into the other world of meditation.
It wasn’t just the author that appealed to me. Sure, he was a factor, but I wanted to learn how he “reduced stress without losing [his] edge”. If meditation worked for him, maybe it could help me with my anxiety.
I found his story inspiring and relatable. He struggles with some of the same issues I do. At first, meditation seemed like sissy stuff. I didn’t give it much thought because I thought it was stupid. After reading Dan’s story, it seems to be a practical coping method for dealing with life in general. It will definitely come in handy considering the fact I’m aiming for a career in journalism.
It’s worth the read. If you need another coping mechanism for life, check this out.
