Television journalist Dan Harris recently released a book called 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Really Works — a True Story.
From what I understand, it chronicles his journey to meditation as a way to calm the incessant chatter in his mind. Doing so led to what he estimated is a 10% increase in his overall happiness.
It really does sound like a great read, and I’ll probably download a copy once I work through my stack of five books ready and waiting.
But as I watched this ridiculously adorable video, I can’t help but see this little guy looks much more than 10% happier.
Wonder how much happier any of us would be by living in the present moment instead of thinking about a different one?
