Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris podcast

Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris

Dan Harris is 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. He went on to write the bestselling book, 10% Happier. On this show, Dan talks with eminent meditation teachers, top scientists, and even the odd celebrity. Guests include everyone from His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Brené Brown to Karamo from Queer Eye. On some episodes, Dan ventures into the deep end of the pool, covering subjects such as enlightenment and psychedelics. On other episodes, it’s science-based techniques for issues such as anxiety, productivity, and relationships. Dan's approach is seemingly modest, but secretly radical: happiness is a skill you can train, just like working your bicep in the gym. Your progress may be incremental at first, but like any good investment, it compounds over time. New episodes come out every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for free. Listen 1-week early and to all episodes ad-free with Wondery+ or Amazon Music with a Prime membership or Amazon Music Unlimited subscription.

Myths Of Love, Sex, Dating, And Relationships | Myisha Battle

How our false expectations and misunderstandings about relationships can create an incalculable amount of suffering — and the many problems of the "You complete me" model. Description: This episode was part one of our four-part series where we’re counter-programming against the way Valentine’s Day is often celebrated, and examining different kinds of relationships including romantic, friendship, and family. Today’s guest hews a bit more closely to the traditional Valentine’s Day theme and will do some myth-busting around all the things we tend to get wrong when we talk about romantic relationships. Myisha Battle is the author of the book, “This Is Supposed to Be Fun: How To Find Joy in Hooking Up, Settling Down, and Everything in Between.” She also hosts the podcast [How’s Your Sex Life?] (https://pod.link/1709536776?utm_campaign=later-linkinbio-kcrw&utm_content=later-38296435&utm_medium=social&utm_source=linkin.bio) Much of her public work focuses on the early stages of relationships, but in her private practice, she counsels people at all stages, and in all kinds of relationships. Content Warning: Explicit language and conversations about sex. In this episode we talk about: ---Five ways to improve intimacy and connection in romantic partnership ---The nuts and bolts of sex, and how we often get intimacy and sex confused in unhelpful ways ---Understanding men’s and women’s cycles to depersonalize issues in sex and relationships ---The myth of finding “the one” ---The orgasm gap ---Bromance ---And if you’re looking, tips on how to make finding a partner easier Full Shownotes: [https://www.tenpercent.com/podcast-episode/myisha-battle-archive] (https://www.tenpercent.com/podcast-episode/myisha-battle-558) Where to find Myisha Battle online: Website: [www.myishabattle.com/] (http://www.myishabattle.com/) Social Media: --- [Twitter: @MyishaBattle] (https://twitter.com/MyishaBattle) --- [Instagram: @MyishaBattle] (https://www.instagram.com/myishabattle/) Book Mentioned: --- [This Is Supposed to Be Fun: How To Find Joy in Hooking Up, Settling Down, and Everything in Between] (https://www.sealpress.com/titles/myisha-battle/this-is-supposed-to-be-fun/9781541602212/) Other Resources Mentioned: ---Alain de Botton’s [Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person] (https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/29/opinion/sunday/why-you-will-marry-the-wrong-person.html) --- [The School of Life] (https://www.theschooloflife.com/) --- [#418.

Modern Life Is Making You Sick, But It Doesn’t Have To | Dr. Gabor Maté

Hidden sources of stress — and how to beat them. Also: the myth of normal, the necessity of being disillusioned, and the disutility of comparing your suffering. Description: There’s so much to be grateful for in modern medicine. We can all agree that we would not do as well in a world with no Advil or dentistry. And yet, our guest today, who is a renowned doctor, says modern medicine is overlooking something crucial: the pernicious impact that modern living has on our minds and bodies. In other words, we are surrounded by these hidden societal and structural sources of stress and we aren’t thinking about how to treat and prevent these factors that are degrading our happiness and our immune systems. Dr. Gabor Maté is a bestselling author with an expertise on everything from stress to addiction to ADHD. His latest book is called, [The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture] (https://drgabormate.com/book/the-myth-of-normal/) Content Warning: This episode has mentions of child abuse, sexual trauma, suicide and addiction In this episode we talk about: ---What he means by “the myth of normal” ---How diseases, such as autoimmune conditions, are an “artifact of civilization” ---How to begin to tackle what Dr. Maté calls, “the social sources of illness” ---His definition of trauma and the difference between “big T traumatic events” and the trauma of “wounding” ---How trauma in society is so normalized that we don’t even recognize it ---Whether the term trauma is overused ---Why comparing suffering is a fruitless endeavor ---What he means by “the necessity to be disillusioned” ---The power and possibility of psychedelics ---Why he thinks we should incorporate shamanic medicine into our western medical framework ---And what he means by “undoing self-limiting beliefs” and how these beliefs show up in our everyday lives Full Shownotes: [https://www.tenpercent.com/podcast-episode/gabor-mate-archive] (https://www.tenpercent.com/podcast-episode/gabor-mate-586) Where to find Gabor Maté online: Website: [drgabormate.com] (https://drgabormate.com/) Social Media: --- [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/drgabormate) --- [Facebook] (https://www.facebook.com/drgabormate) --- [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/gabormatemd/) --- [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsRF06lSFA8zV9L8_x9jzIA) Books Mentioned: --- [The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture] (https://drgabormate.com/book/the-myth-of-normal/) --- [When the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection] (https://drgabormate.com/book/when-the-body-says-no/) --- [Scattered Minds: The Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder] (https://drgabormate.com/book/scattered-minds/) --- [In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction] (https://drgabormate.com/book/in-the-realm-of-hungry-ghosts/) --- [Hold On to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers] (https://drgabormate.com/book/hold-on-to-your-kids/) Other Resources Mentioned: --- [The Wisdom of Trauma] (https://thewisdomoftrauma.com/) --- [Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Is Associated with Increased Risk of Ovarian Cancer: A Prospective and Retrospective Longitudinal Cohort Study] (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31488422/#:~:text=Women%20with%20high%20PTSD%20symptoms,)%2C%201.12%2D3.95%5D.) --- [Decrease in depression symptoms is associated with longer survival in patients with metastatic breast cancer: a secondary analysis] (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21149651/) --- [Marital Status, Marital Strain, and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease or Total Mortality: The Framingham Offspring Study] (https://www.researchgate.net/publication/6203030_Marital_Status_Marital_Strain_and_Risk_of_Coronary_Heart_Disease_or_Total_Mortality_The_Framingham_Offspring_Study) --- [George Engel] (https://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/doi/pdf/10.1176/appi.ajp.162.11.2039) --- [How spanking may affect brain development in children] (https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2021/04/spanking-children-may-impair-their-brain-development/) --- [The Trauma of Everyday Life by Dr. Mark Epstein] (http://markepsteinmd.com/?p=56) --- [IntraConnected: MWe (Me + We) as the Integration of Self, Identity, and Belonging by Dr. Dan Siegel] (https://drdansiegel.com/book/intraconnected-mwe-me-we-as-the-integration-of-self-identity-and-belonging/) --- [A.

Here's What I Learned From Writing A Whole Book About Meditation | Dan Harris

The tables have turned: Dan is interviewed by two of his producers. This is the kickoff episode of our upcoming series celebrating the 10th anniversary of Dan’s book, where two of Dan’s producers, DJ Cashmere and Lauren Smith, interview him. We talk about the story behind the book, what it was like to have a panic attack on national television, why Dan decided to admit it publicly, how the success of the book utterly transformed his life, and what he learned… Both while writing the book and subsequently. We talk about concepts such as “Respond, not react,” why our faults aren’t our fault (but they are our responsibility), and whether we all have the capacity to change. DJ and Lauren will even weigh in on how they think Dan’s doing on the score.
