Dan Harris is a correspondent for ABC News and the co-anchor for the weekend edition of Good Morning America. Before that, he was the anchor of the Sunday edition of World News. He regularly contributes stories for such shows as Nightline, 20/20, World News with Diane Sawyer, and GMA.
Dan overworked himself. He was in a hypercompetitive environment where the grind never stopped, and he was a skeptic of self-care and self-love. But one day, he had a nationally televised panic attack on Good Morning America that showed him he couldn’t continue living life the way he had. It made him start to concentrate on his mental health and learn how to be a little happier every day. Dan used to believe meditation was useless, but now he uses that tool to recenter his psyche and body into a calmer, safer place.
I’m so excited to bring you this episode because it’s focused on one of the biggest goals that all of us share: being happier. Dan studied meditation and wrote the #1 New York Times Bestseller, 10% Happier, which he also turned into a podcast and an app. Dan’s objective is to help people who are skeptical about meditation — because he once was too — while also connecting with those already on their mental and spiritual journeys.
In our last episode together, Dan shared more about his panic attack on Good Morning America and how it caused him to turn his life around. In this interview, Dan and I discuss simple ways to raise our happiness, accept ourselves, and shares about the benefits of meditation.
Join me on Episode 958 to learn how you can become 10% happier every day with the inspirational Dan Harris!
