Dan Harris, a news anchor for ABC, was a co-founder of this app. Following an on-air panic attack that was witnessed by his many viewers, Dan was inspired to address his own anxiety. As a result, he brought his journey of self-discovery to the public.

The app features guided meditations and focus on areas like stress, happiness, and focus. In addition, you can stream talks when a traditional meditation won’t fit into your day. The app approaches mindfulness with a mix of education and practice.

You can also read Dan’s book (by the same name as this meditation app) or listen to the Ten Percent Happier podcast.
