Description :  <b>THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF <i>10% HAPPIER</i></b><br /><br /><b>Too busy to meditate? Can’t turn off your brain? Curious about mindfulness but more comfortable in the gym? This book is for you.</b><br /><br /> <b>You’ll also get access to guided audio meditations on the 10% Happier app, to jumpstart your practice from day one.</b><br /><br /> ABC News anchor Dan Harris used to think that meditation was for people who collect crystals, play Ultimate Frisbee, and use the word “namaste” without irony. After he had a panic attack on live television, he went on a strange and circuitous journey that ultimately led him to become one of meditation’s most vocal public proponents.<br /><br /> Here’s what he’s fixated on now: Science suggests that meditation can lower blood pressure, mitigate depression and anxiety, and literally rewire key parts of the brain, among numerous other benefits. And yet there are millions of people who want to meditate but aren’t actually practicing. What’s holding them back?<br /><br />In this guide to mindfulness and meditation for beginners and experienced meditators alike, Harris and his friend Jeff Warren, a masterful teacher and “Meditation MacGyver,” embark on a cross-country quest to tackle the myths, misconceptions, and self-deceptions that stop people from meditating. They rent a rock-star tour bus (whose previous occupants were Parliament Funkadelic) and travel across eighteen states, talking to scores of would-be meditators—including parents, military cadets, police officers, and even a few celebrities. They create a taxonomy of the most common issues (“I suck at this,” “I don’t have the time,” etc.) and offer up science-based life hacks to help people overcome them.<br /><br /> The book is filled with game-changing and deeply practical meditation instructions. Amid it all unspools the strange and hilarious story of what happens when a congenitally sarcastic, type-A journalist and a groovy Canadian mystic embark on an epic road trip into America’s neurotic underbelly, as well as their own.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics</i></b><br /><br />“If you’re like many people, you’re intrigued by the promise of meditation but don’t know how to begin—or you’ve benefited from meditation in the past but need help to get started again. If so, Dan Harris has written the book for you. <i>Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics</i> is well researched, practical, and crammed with expert advice—and it’s also an irreverent, hilarious page-turner.”<b>—Gretchen Rubin, author of <i>The Four Tendencies</i> and <i>The Happiness Project</i></b>

Description :  Dan Harris era um jornalista promissor, que construía com garra sua carreira de apresentador na rede de televisão americana ABC News. Mas a obsessão pelo trabalho, a autocrítica exagerada e a extrema competitividade o levaram a um ponto sem volta: o dia em que teve um ataque de pânico ao vivo, na frente de milhões de telespectadores.<br /><br />A partir dali, ficou claro que algo precisava mudar – e ele acabou embarcando numa inesperada odisseia através do mundo da espiritualidade. Apesar de declaradamente agnóstico, Dan precisou admitir que ficara intrigado com aquele universo.<br /><br />Com certa relutância, ele descobriu que a fonte de seus problemas era justamente aquilo que considerava seu maior aliado: a voz incessante dentro de sua cabeça, que o impelia sempre a querer mais, fazer mais, se esforçar mais.<br /><br />Todos nós temos essa voz. É ela que nos faz ter preocupações excessivas, julgar os outros, ruminar o passado e temer o futuro. É ela que nos torna tensos, ansiosos, irritados e frustrados.<br /><br />Assim como a maioria das pessoas, Dan acreditava que era impossível controlar essa voz. Mas ele encontrou na meditação uma maneira eficaz de acalmar seus pensamentos, equilibrar suas emoções e se tornar uma pessoa melhor – sem perder a energia para lutar por aquilo que deseja.<br /><br />Fugindo de clichês e sentimentalismos, ele divide com o leitor suas dúvidas, desconfianças e descobertas, narrando de forma hilária os inusitados passos dessa jornada: de entrevistas duras com Eckhart Tolle, Dalai Lama e Deepak Chopra até um retiro de dez dias que fez ruir sua resistência.<br /><br /><b>"Este é o melhor livro sobre meditação para os não iniciados, os céticos e os curiosos. Parte confessional, parte investigação jornalística, 10% mais feliz é 100% viciante." — Daniel Goleman, autor de Inteligência emocional e Foco</b>

Description :  Nightline anchor Dan Harris embarks 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.&#xa0;<br /><br />After having a nationally televised panic attack on Good Morning America, 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 both propelled him through the ranks of a hyper-competitive business and also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out.&#xa0;<br /><br />We all have a voice in our head. It's what has us losing our temper unnecessarily, checking our email compulsively, eating when we're not hungry, and fixating on the past and the future at the expense of the present. Most of us would assume we're stuck with this voice that there's nothing we can do to rein it in but Harris stumbled upon an effective way to do just that. It's a far cry from the miracle cures peddled by the self-help swamis he met; instead, it's something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation. After learning about research that suggests meditation can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain, Harris took a deep dive into the underreported world of CEOs, scientists, and even marines who are now using it for increased calm, focus, and happiness.&#xa0;<br /><br />10% Happier takes listeners 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.&#xa0;
