"An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation."
Nightline anchor Dan Harrisembarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help, and discovers a way to get happier that is truly achievable.
After having a nationally televised panic attack, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had propelled him through the ranks of a hypercompetitive business, but had also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out.
Finally, Harris stumbled upon an effective way to rein in that voice, something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation, a tool that research suggests can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain. 10% Happier takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America’s spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives.
Nawet nie zauważasz, jak mocno wierzysz w te słowa i ile energii z ciebie wysysają! Starasz się normalnie żyć, tylko od czasu do czasu myślisz z rezygnacją, że skoro nie potrafisz ruszyć z miejsca czterech liter, to być może nigdy nie dotrzesz w życiu tam, gdzie chcesz, a szczęście, za którym tęsknisz, pozostanie tuż poza twoim zasięgiem.
Moją książkę dedykuję tym, którzy doświadczają tego destruktywnego monologu, brodząc w strumieniu wątpliwości i manipulacji zatruwających codzienne życie. „Unf*ck Yourself. Napraw się!” to werbalny policzek od wszechświata, który ma sprawić, żebyś się ocknął, docenił swój prawdziwy potencjał, przestał sobie dowalać i totalnie wkręcił się we własne życie.
A więc… napraw się!
