Do you want to live longer, exercise smarter & eat better? Ten Percent Happier has a series of podcast episodes to help you do just that, featuring experts in science and Buddhism. Listen here: https://link.chtbl.com/vX0o7hLd.The Ten Percent Happier podcast is hosted by Dan Harris, a fidgety, skeptical journalist who had a panic attack on live national television, which led him to try something he otherwise never would have considered: meditation. On the Ten Percent Happier podcast, Dan talks with eminent meditation teachers, top scientists, and even the odd celebrity -- from Gabor Maté to Brené Brown to Karamo from Queer Eye. Listen as Dan ventures into the deep end of the pool, covering subjects such as enlightenment and psychedelics or science-based techniques for issues such as anxiety, productivity, and relationships. You can listen to Ten Percent Happier wherever you're listening to this.

And even if you are able to digest everything and figure out what the right course of action


is for you, can you actually create sustainable habits? That is diabolically hard for many of us.

want to be healthier or is it some sort of self-loathing? So these are some of the


questions we are endeavoring to answer in the course of this new series which we're
