Ep. 92: New York Times #1 Best-selling author and Emmy Award winning ABC News anchor Dan Harris

Find out how you can succeed and live mindfully without losing your edge, learn how from Dan Harris on The Nice Guys Podcast today

ABC News anchor Dan Harris has found a way to be happier, calmer and—according to his wife, at least—nicer in the midst of one of the most competitive careers on earth. And if it can work for someone as fidgety, skeptical and stress-prone as him, it can probably work for you, too. It’s a far cry from the heal-your-life, solve-all-your-problems over-promising of self-help. What Dan stumbled upon is practical, doable, and scientifically researched. Dan tells this story as only a reporter can: through deep research, tough questions, and a healthy dose of humor.

Here's more to know about Dan:     

 - Author of the New York Times bestselling book 10% Happier

Co-creator of the 10% Happier App     

- Through a disgraced evangelical pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a fateful gift from his wife, Harris discovered meditation     

- He got ABC News anchors Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts to start meditating     

And what we learned talking to him:     

The "Voice in your head" does not mean you need to seek professional help     

- He's not a tree-hugging, yoga-loving, hippie, kind of guy, but he found that meditation does work     

-Meditation can help lower your blood pressure, boost your immune system and even re-wire parts of your brain     

- His book "10% HAPPIER: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works" is one man’s accidental quest to boost his happiness quotient without losing his professional drive     

- His "10% Happier" app is for people who are allergic to New Age-y nonsense. Check out the link below
