10% Happier is the story of how the journalist Dan Harris got acquainted with meditation as an outsider and a skeptic. This book can be a good starting point if you are curious about the practice of meditation but feel distanced by the mysticism that surrounds it. He explains how he got into meditation in a very accessible and relatable manner. It is not a life-changing book by any means but can be a light and entertaining read to get your feet wet with the subject.
There’s no point in being unhappy about things you can’t change, and no point being unhappy about things you can.
