When I first read 10% Happier by Dan Harris, I was still a bit skeptical about the concept of meditation.  It was intriguing, but I didn’t see how I could practically fit it into my life. School was my main priority.  It wasn’t until I crashed and burned my junior year that I knew I needed to do something.  My anxiety was too much.  So, I reread the book and actually started a meditation practice.  And it’s really helped me manage my anxiety.  It’s nice to know that I can do something to just take a timeout.  I’ve managed to work up to 20 minutes daily, and I’m hoping to increase that time.  I’ve made a new year’s resolution to meditate every day.  I think it’s a resolution I’ll keep.
