Gretchen What s a simple habit that consistently makes you happier Dan I never in a million years thought I d be the type of person who d say this, but my answer is meditation.I had always assumed that meditation was for robed gurus, acid droppers, and people who keep yurts in their backyard But then I heard about the explosion of scientific research that shows the practice has an almost laughably long list of health benefits, from lowering your blood pressure to boosting your immune system to essentially rewiring your brain for happiness I started with five minutes a day, and very quickly noticed three benefits 1 Increased focus, 2 A greater sense of calm, and 3 A vastly improved ability to jolt myself out of rumination and fantasies about the past or the future, and back to whatever was happening right in front of my face.Over time I ve now been at it for about four years and do 35 minutes a day , an even substantial benefit kicked in I created a different relationship to the voice in my head You know the voice I m talking about It s what has us reaching into the fridge when we re not hungry, checking our e mail while we re in conversation with other people, and losing our temper only to regret it later The ability to see what s going on in your head at any given moment without reacting to it blindly often called mindfulness is a superpower.I m certainly not arguing that meditation is a panacea I still do tons of stupid stuff as my wife will attest But the practice has definitely made me happier, calmer, and nicer. Gretchen What s something you know now about forming healthy habits that you didn t know when you were 18 years old Dan A neuroscientist friend of mine once told me, The brain is a pleasure seeking machine Usually, we do what makes us feel good What I know now about habit formation that I didn t know then is that I generally cannot create or break habits unless there is compelling self interest involved.So, for example, with meditation, I was motivated to start the habit by the science that says it s good for you and I ve been able to maintain it because, while the act of meditating is often quite tough, the off the cushion benefits are so readily apparent to me.Gretchen Do you have any habits that continually get in the way of your happiness Dan Two biggies 1 Multitasking I ve seen all the studies that say our brains are not capable of concentrating on than one thing at a time and that multitasking is a huge drag on efficiency and productivity And yet, I still frequently find myself flitting between email, Twitter, phone calls, and whatever work I m actually supposed to be doing.2 Mindless eating I try very hard to eat healthfully, but I am a huge sucker for pasta, cheeseburgers, and cookies and when I get into a feeding frenzy, it s hard for me to stop These episodes are almost always followed by a shame spiral.In theory, meditation should help with the above, since it teaches you to pay careful attention to whatever you re doing right now Alas, I still struggle Hence the title of my book.Gretchen Have you ever managed to break an unhealthy habit If so, how Dan In my early thirties, as a young reporter for ABC News, I spent many years covering wars When I got back from one particularly long and hairy run in Baghdad, I became depressed In an act of towering stupidity, I began to self medicate, dabbling with cocaine and ecstasy In hindsight, it was an attempt, at least partly, to recreate some of the thrill of the war zone.A side effect of all of this, as my doctor later explained to me, was that the drugs increased the level of adrenaline in my brain, which is what, in all likelihood, produced a panic attack I had on live television in 2004 on Good Morning America The shrink I consulted about this decreed in no uncertain terms that I needed to stop doing drugs immediately Faced with the potential demise of my career, breaking this habit was a pretty obvious call Gretchen Have you ever made a flash change, where you changed a major habit very suddenly Dan In the summer after I graduated from high school, I did experience a flash change I was in my car, driving to go see some friends, and I decided seemingly out of nowhere that after years of being a mediocre high school student, I was going to truly apply myself in the next phase of my life The next year, when my father saw my first college report card, he nearly cried.Interestingly, the fact that I did well in college has had zero practical impact on my career in television news I don t think any of my employers has ever asked about my grades But that flash change established a long lasting habit of hard work and ambition Which, it must be said, has sometimes been to my detriment It was, I now believe, my fervent desire to excel at my job that led me to plunge headlong into war zones without considering the psychological consequences which, in turn, led to the drugs and the panic attack I ve found that meditation has really helped me strike a better balance between striving and stress.Startling, provocative, and often very funny 10% HAPPIER will convince even the
