Meditate not medicate 5/5
I started meditating,again, when I quit drinking for January. Dryuary. Can’t stop! Love how it helps focus my monkey mind. I’m loving the speakers, and resonate with what I am learning. Makes me want to get up in the morning to listen, have my zen coffee hour. Thank you! Keep adding pertinent people, and interviews on your podcast.
Amazing app 5/5
I’m loving the courses, meditations and coaching offered in this app. Even the free version provides lots of options. Eventually, I paid to unlock more content because I think the app contains so much high-quality material!
New to Meditation 5/5
I’ve tried many other mediation apps in the past and none of them have explained meditation as well as 10% Happier. As I went through the Basics series every time I had a question pop up about meditation it seemed like it was answered in the next video or so. I also love the variety of teachers in this app. Their range of voices and teaching styles is perfect. I frequently use the anxiety meditations I have bookmarked. Thanks to the coverage of this topic, I am learning how to quickly redirect my thoughts and know what to focus on besides my breath (when I’m close to a panic attack focusing on the breath is the opposite of what I should do).
A sincere thanks to the entire team at 10% Happier for building this app into what it is today! I hope I get to meet one of the wonderful teachers from this app one day 😊
My first day of meditation... 5/5
I really like how the application gives you many choices of meditation minutes and ways to be aware of the moment. It has too much information that I know with all these tools I will learn to make it part of my life style. The price is a little higher than what I expected but if I am planning to use this app in a daily basis I think it is pretty fair. I started with the monthly payment and by then I will know if I will get good use of it or not. Hopefully I can get the chance to buy the yearly membership vs the monthly payment.
I love the concept of meditation I just need to make it as one of my priorities in life!
Good job 5/5
Much better than any other version of meditation I’ve tried in the past.
Can not highly enough recommend this! 5/5
I love the tools that this app gives me. It’s like a college course on my phone. I love the flow of it. I love the meditations. I love the different perspectives.
Great Variety of Meditations 4/5
Would love to see a search function (on key words). And some meditations for athletes or sports performance would be a great addition. Thank you for a wonderful app with so much information on mindfulness and meditation.
Trying to start meditation as someone who is completely new and open to the concept. Met with constant roadblocks of needing to purchase meditations for specific things that I would like to focus on. If I’m not completely sold on mediation as a remedy for my internal issues, why would I immediately subscribe for a monthly fee?
Nothing like throwing additional anxiety into the mix, whilst trying to be open minded, and excited to learn.
Also I don’t like that you are assigned a coach who claims to not be a robot, but sends automated messages when I didn’t even ask a question.
I really got too excited about the concept, and maybe paying for the full version would help, but how am I supposed to know that from the sample size I am given?
Great idea, terrible introduction..
Great Content, Cluttered App 5/5
Love this app! The guided meditations are incredible, and unlike Headspace, you have a plethora of teachers to choose from. Each one offers their own interesting take on meditation, so it keeps the practice fresh. Really dig that aspect.
Wish the app itself was easier to navigate. It’s a bit Byzantine, and needs some serious UX work to make it shine.
TLDR: Great content, medium presentation.
I have tried other mindfulness apps but this is the best. I use it every day.
There is so much there at first I was overwhelmed by all the content, now appreciate all the app has to offer. I bought the subscription after trying it out.
Way to much Dan Harris. 1/5
It gets really annoying to here this guy talking in the beginning of every session. The app would be much better without him
Never able to load the meditations 1/5
By Corilr - LA
I was excited to just stop because of the reputation and quality of some of the teachers this day. And fortunately I was never able to hear a single meditation because they wouldn’t load. Also I don’t tell you what medications hopefully so you have to scroll through the checkout button you can experiment with before actually signing. If they fix the problems I would check it out again.
Rachel C. 5/5
Fantastic app!!! Very well constructed, accessible, engaging, practical, and informative. I really appreciate the variety of well respected and experienced teachers. I would encourage both new and experienced meditators to check it out!
Life Altering 5/5
As someone who has struggled with depression and anxiety for the better part of 10 years, I can’t believe I never considered meditation. It may be due, in part, to being a child of western medicine. A pill always fixes everything. Wrong!
I saw Dan promoting his new book and decided to read it. I then found the app and it’s difficult to remember the ‘before’ as my kids call it.
I’m a mom of two teens, wife to a funeral director, a full time junior high teacher, and a junior high girls basketball coach. In the midst of all of this, I felt like I was drowning. Now, I reach for this app. Each morning, it starts my day. When work gets crazy, I find myself grabbing for it. At the end of the day, I reach for it before heading home. Seriously, IT’S SO WORTH IT!!!!
Somehow, a month after install and hadn’t touched it since, I started a 7 day Free Trial that I must cancel to avoid charges. Someone needs to explain how I started a free trial after a month of non use?!?!?! The best part is, in the email doesn’t explain HOW to cancel, just that I have to cancel to avoid undisclosed charges.
If you are just browsing, SKIP this nonsense.
Don’t add this AP!!!!!
They gave me
A trial. Which I didn’t ask for and said if I don’t cancel during the trial. They will start charging me. I never asked to be signed up for any of this. Do not download this app it’s a scam
A Daily Habit 5/5
I’ve been so happy with the variety of meditations. There’s something for every need it seems.
It’s also friendly and makes you feel
like you can do it.
I’m so happy to get the little reminder every morning!
Perfect app for anyone who has been told by to meditate and their reaction is “ARGH!” 5/5
This is such an approachable entrance into learning and practicing Mindfulness. Meditations as short as 1 minute. Funny, forgiving meditations. I love it.
Real world meditation 5/5
After many years of unsatisfying and fruitless attempts at meditation, this app speaks my language. I look forward to each session. The authors and teachers base their lessons on research, not faith, and the sessions are full of real world examples that help me stay on track. In a relatively short period of time I am already noting changes in my attitude toward the world around me.
Finally a real world approach 5/5
By Better late than never?
Dan, gets it and applies this principle of mediation in a way that’s disarming, fun, and genuine!
Learning to STOp & Pay attention...... 5/5
The other day my girlfriend said to me that she was at a crossroads in her life, & could we get together for coffee.
I said sure. We talked about all the things we needed to catch up on..... & l found myself recommending this app.
I said l haven’t even used it, but because she NEEDED It - l was curious too. Don’t get me wrong - we both have our own spiritual practices!
I am on my 4th five min lesson & l love it! It’s the ME time everyone talks about. I am finding that my every action is becoming mindful; instead of routine or reactive.
I am so proud of myself for breaking in to the meditative world! I am thankful for this awareness & hope to take this with me in the days to come.
Great Resource 5/5
I have been meditating for almost a year now. Recently began using 10% Happier and am loving the guided meditations! Highly recommend for anyone.
Best App I’ve tried 5/5
This is my 3rd meditation app I’ve tried and my favorite. It’s for everyone.
Meditate Anywhere 5/5
By TimW 68
Dan makes meditation so easy. You don’t need to set the atmosphere to meditate. You just need to stop for five minutes listen and breathe. After meditation briefly every night before bed I can see my patience and understanding increase exponentially. I never would have guessed it! I even became certified in guided meditation so I can share it with other! Thanks Dan!
Love it! But... 3/5
Daily meditator here,
I want to address the elephant in the room and say that I personally believe in the infinite potential within the confines of meditation. And this app along with its management need to reconsider a rebrand and more specifically a new name. Why would you push 10% more happiness when you could acknowledge meditations infinite potential to feel not only 10% better, but 20%, 30% better, or even 110% better (literally better than you had habitually conceived possible) there is so much that we have conditioned ourselves to believe about our minds that just caps off the potential of consistent here and now ecstasy.
If this is your first module of learning meditation I pray for the mental limits you’ve put on your psyche from the very start.
If you or any of the developers would like to hear more than my two cents on this concept feel free to contact my username.
Strangely Effective 5/5
I have major depression, been hospitalized for suicidal acts, on many antidepressants for DECADES, had every type of therapy known, since 1990....maybe it’s just the right time for me to “catch on” ... I’m a rebel when it comes to rules! Thank you for introducing me to me...and keeping me laughing the whole way. I feel a breakthrough coming! (It’s about damned time)
A brilliant configuration 5/5
I find this program to be rich with workable options and opportunities to learn about (and manage, bit by bit) my mind and entrenched mental habits. It has helped me in several ways, maybe because it gets straight to a point without any pseudo-spiritual “fluff”. The speaker/guides have very different styles and approaches to choose from. My coach Joshua has enhanced my ability to navigate the offerings with timely, personal, practical suggestions. The app keeps developing as a work in progress which I like. 10% Happier is a realistic name for this app. I hope it is now available for folks who have different kinds of devices other than iPhones, and I recommend it highly. Thanks, Dan Harris, Joseph Goldstein, Joshua and all of you who teach and design this tool. You have made a very positive difference not only for me but also for others to whom I have gifted your program.
Great app 5/5
By lil spoogey
Yeah you can
Technical issues 3/5
I really enjoy the meditations and the free classes but the app has some technical issues. Often the meditations won’t load regardless of how long I wait or my internet connection and the email technical support button does nothing!
Love It!! 5/5
This app delivers way more then I expected. The content is amazing!!! Love it. A treasure for sure.
THE BEST MEDITATION APP! 5/5
I've been using this app for over a year & Dan Harris & Co. keep adding more great material. They've managed to assemble a world-class faculty of mindfulness meditation instructors--each different in approach & personality, each brilliantly representing a unique facet. These are lower-case "gurus" who live in our world, share our struggles, & help us become more sane & resilient--to achieve "wise mind"--with anecdotes, compassion, and lots of humor. It's like having a wonderful eccentric family of aunts & uncles--coaching, rooting for you, always in your corner when you turn to them for encouragement & guidance ... whatever the subscription cost, it's a gift.
The best money you’ll ever spend. 5/5
If you are looking at getting this app, DO IT. It quite literally the best money you’ll spend.
Excellent Meditation App! 5/5
This app has helped me further my home practice and I especially find value in the guided meditations. The courses are a nice compliment. If you haven’t checked out the blog, do yourself a favor and give it a listen!! Thank you for having a panic attack, Dan 😁
I have never in my life reviewed an app before however I am compelled to do so for this here app. What an awesome app, I have struggled with starting a mediation practice for years and this app has helped me. I have now meditated nearly every day for 1 month and am well on my way to being 10+% happier!!! Thank you thank you thank you
Just pause 5/5
It really will make u happier, feel more centered, and better. Don’t u get tired of that stressed out feeling, of needing to try to be productive every second. I truly believe that the more time u spend on your own health, the more productive and happier u will be. Everyone has one minute. Now close your eyes and breathe!
An easy way to meditate in bite size pieces 5/5
By I'm with her/him
Introductory lessons are very helpful, easy to follow. The voice for the meditation is calm.
This app is excellent for those learning how to meditate or taking their practice deeper. I love that the lessons and meditations are short bite-sized pieces, which makes it easy to learn.
Better understanding 5/5
By Mama Rawls
I really appreciate the short lesson before the meditation in the beginner series. Joseph Goldstein’s voice is so calming, but more his explanation, of breathing, of thoughts in the mind and how to address them, feelings in the body, are super helpful. I’ve been wanting to learn to meditate for s long time and always have felt that because of the distractions of the mind, paired with not understanding the importance of the breath and how it anchors the whole process, that I’ve been doing it wrong. Now I understand what to do with my thoughts, how to make them work in a positive way in my meditation practice. Definitely worthwhile app for anyone.
A++ app and content! 5/5
This app is awesome! The free content is perfect to start your journey. The focus is light hearted and won’t stress you out if you’re a beginner. The different meditation experts all have their own style and that’s a good thing.
If you go for the purchased content the app goes even deeper and is more useful. I recommend for any beginner or even someone who has been meditating for a while.
I’m way more than 10% Happier with this app! 5/5
By Ashtan Grammy
10% Happier is a well thought out and well constructed app. The teachings are timely and practical. You get a helpful meditation coach that checks in with you and gives advice when asked and yes, they are real people. I am 💯% happy with this quality app.
Love this App 5/5
By MJ Murph
I love this app. It’s really helping me to feel better about how I meditate. I’m definitely one of the those figgety people. Not skeptical but quiet my mind has always been a challenge. There are so many great teachers and I love the humor that is brought to this and I love the courses that are available. It’s so worth the investment. I’ve paid tens of thousands of dollars for my personal coaching which has all been great and the investment for this app and all that is given is really amazing. Sooo happy to know there are others who have felt like me as well. Feels like a functional funny home.
I’m meditating. 4/5
For some reason, I decided to give this a try this time. Many times I have considered meditating, but have moved past that moment without starting. The readers are excellent, especially the initial reader. As I begin each time, I notice that my breathing slows and deepens automatically. That seems to regulate my entire body, and puts me in a relaxed state. I will continue this.
Meditation for mental acuity 5/5
By Every Rose
I trained in Transcendental Meditation when I was 16, but I have not been consistent for years. I have been using the app for the past 4 days and I feel like this is the way for me to be consistent.
Majority of meditations locked 3/5
I know this is necessary to fund it, but would love to figure out a way to have slightly more of it free because I like the meditations. Love the push notification.
Love the app - make a Apple Watch version! 5/5
I love this app! Especially all of the guided meditations by Joseph Goldstein. I just wish that there was an Apple Watch version. :)
Too commercial. 2/5
I liked this app until I discovered that after one or two sessions with a particular teacher an ad for the paid monthly version popped up and I could no longer get the sessions I thought came with the app. This shows Dan Harris’ TV journalist background where you see a report and then are subjected to ads. Better to get the books of the meditation experts mentioned in the app and then use an app like Insight Timer to do your meditation.
Next day. I removed the app from my iPhone because I was getting angry at being sent to the commercial ad for the monthly subscription. A meditation app that gets you irritated is a anti-meditation app. Don’t download it!
Reconnecting with mindfulness 5/5
By Andre the Chef
Are used to have a strong then practice when I lived in New York City. Kids, work, and just everyday life fought valiantly to keep me distracted from practicing on a consistent basis until it was no longer a practice but rather a distant memory. My cushion has been sitting patiently waiting for me to take my place and begin again. This app is a gentle reminder to keep sitting and to reconnect with the thoughts and letting them go. I am grateful to have found this app and I am now learning practical techniques through guided meditation.
Hard to Distill... 5/5
Having to write a review for a good meditation app seems like something you would struggle to keep short. I'll be intentionally brief.
I have always "dabbled" in meditation (and vipassana) but this is the first time I've found it completely open and approachable. Bravo. It's amazing.
Update: Been on it for six months. Enormously instructive for what it is almost replacing - actual instruction.
Update 2: Been practicing for a year. Still with this. Still sitting. Love it.
Great app 5/5
Love the app! Only I wish it worked with the series 3 Apple Watch. Let’s do it!
Otherwise the videos are awesome as well as the actual mechanism
