“10% Happier Summary”

There is not a single person out there, who hasn’t been at least once “sinking” and drowning in its own emotions. It’s perfectly natural that you at some point, lost control over your mind and body.

In more ignorant circles, people tend to neglect these and continue without even questioning their arousal. Now, we look over and under, to throw light on why we end up depressed, what causes mood swings and how to handle it.

Before we embark on resolving this great mystery, it’s best to start with facts. Recently conducted scientific research indicate that a term known as “mindfulness” is vague to a large portion of the world. A state achievable through internal reforms.

Meditation, for example, is a very misleading term, people think that you need to find a perfect position, have a beautiful garden, or Zen interior to be able to be with yourself, and thus experience the positive pull from it.

Such false claims only prolong your mental suffering and lead you from one pitfall to another. Although “making peace” is gaining ground in today’s world all the practices leading to it are still blurry.  

The incentive to begin pursuing self-contentment must be correlated with the understanding of the enemy. In these regards, you are not obligated to look outside of you. Even though almost everyone has heard that the ego is the one drawing the line; yet very few are truly aware of its impact and reach.

The Eastern wisdom spreads like wildfire in the Western World. Unlike 50 years ago, people are now more prone to investigate around this “ego” and look under the kilt of it. If someone calls you egoistic, what does that even mean?

It actually illustrates that you are too busy trying to satisfy your small little world.
