Relaxation is Not Enough
By Jay Michaelson
Chilling out is not enough.
I know, I know – most people try out meditation in order to reduce stress. And that is totally fine. Meditating will help you calm down and de-stress. It does work.
But that's the tip of the iceberg. The real point is happiness.
Here’s the thing. De-stressing is actually a pretty simple process. When you’re stressed out, the neurons are firing, the heart is pumping, the hormones (cortisol, adrenaline, and others) are flowing. If you can just decrease the rates of all those things, you’ll return to a more balanced state. You’ll chill out.
Meditation is one of many tools that can do that. You can also just take a few deep breaths, go for a walk, or Netflix & Chill. Anything that interrupts the feedback loops of mind and body will do the trick.
But if that’s all you’re doing with meditation, you’re kind of missing out. Because the real benefit of meditation comes not from the chilling out but from the seeing clearly, which comes next. That’s what actually leads to happiness.
What’s really going on in mindfulness meditation are actually two processes: calm and insight. Calm is what we just talked about; it’s the slowing down of the mind by focusing on a single object (breath, a phrase, whatever) for awhile. Relaxation is basically a side-effect of that.
The point of focusing the mind, though, isn’t just to chill out: it’s to see clearly. What do you see? Well that depends on where you look. In many spiritual contexts, you might notice how things that seem fixed in place are actually very impermanent: feelings come and go very quickly, for example, which is helpful if you’d like to let go of that consuming anger/ anxiety/ whatever that has been causing you so much pain.
In other spiritual contexts, you might notice how beautiful things are if you can just “be here now.” A simple blade of grass can seem filled with miracles.
Or, in secular contexts, you might see your “stuff” more clearly: how much you love someone, how you sometimes get in your own way, how your habits are helping or not helping you live your best life.
This is insight. Unlike calm, it has some content to it, and it can have much more lasting benefits than just a ten-minute chill-out...

I’m enjoying the beginner series and it is just the right length. I have been choosing to meditate just before bed and find I am sleeping better after just 6 sessions.
Truly 10% HaPpIeR! Thank you Dan Harris!
I love that there are so many sessions to choose from and there are lessons from experts. Instead of checking social media, I now do a sleep meditation every night. I’ve learned so much!
Great app. But the cost to continue is way too much.
I don’t understand how a cancelled subscription before the trial still ends up charging you.
As an atheist I love Dan Harris’ skeptical approach. I have tried several other apps in the last 9 years but this one works for me best. Joseph Goldstein and Anushka Fernandopulle are my favorites but I enjoy several other teachers as well. The discussions preceding many meditations (within courses) are excellent educational materials for me. The topics covered range from stress and fear to lust to Buddhism basics that everyone can apply regardless of their world view. I see it as a modern church in an app (minus god and social interactions) - I would not be surprised if this grew into a movement with physical locations across the US where likeminded users would meet, listen to presentations, share ideas and meditate together. I think a need for such a movement (The Church of Reason and Meditation) exists. I read the book 10% Happier before I stumbled on the app (I’m on my second yearly subscription) so I felt like I knew Dan Harris and I can count on him eliminating references to supernatural godly powers that always trigger resistance in me, and make me want to get up and walk away irritated. The app may seem pricey but you get what you pay for and more. It is definitely worth more for me than my gym membership.
For 45+ years, I’ve tried to meditate. It felt like sitting in fire. That is, until now. The 10% Happier app has opened up an entire world beyond that which I could have imagined. I’ve tried other apps, and my experience has been lukewarm. I am having so much joy exploring the present, being curious and opening my heart. Thanks you!
Dan Harris demystifies the art of meditation through his books and now with this app. I’ve been meditating a number of years but I’ve been going through the basics in the first lessons here and it’s good to revisit the “begin again” concepts of mindfulness. I like that you can download and rewind on this app.
I’ve had many mediation apps this doesn’t even scratch most that you can get off YouTube, the mediation podcast, and soundcloud. Do not start free trial because it forces you to do an entire year subscription and it is not worth it. Might deserve 2 stars but I’m in a bad mood today
I’m enjoying this so far...using the free sessions but not sure I’ll continue since it looks like the cost is $99.99. Seems an awful lot. We shall see though I may be able to sometime. Wish it was more affordable though so more people could benefit from this.
This is a great app with a huge range of practises for meditating either as a noob or an experienced meditator. As I have progressed I’ve been excited by how useful the app is, particularly the coaching service. I hit a ceiling and wasn’t progressing and some quick tailored advice got me on track. Buy this app, use it daily and be kind to yourself.
The 10% Happier App has changed my life. It includes a wide range of meditations from a variety of professional and expert teachers. The quality of content and usability of the app is highly commendable. Thanks so for much to the 10% Happier team! I highly recommend this app for meditation and improving mental health.
I’ve tried a bunch of meditation apps and this is my favourite so far. Not only are the teachers great, but the meditations have heart, which is something that is missing for the more secular apps. Joseph Golstein and Sharon Salzberg are true lights to meditation and my life. I wholeheartedly recommend 10% Happier app.
Sometimes cutting out and not loading fully
I recommend this app to my friends, family and patients. I also love listening to the podcast as an adjunct. This app offers the best quality teachers and teachings, and being able to take a course and work towards a certain theme of goal or topic is unique and really satisfying. I enjoy the humour that is also interwoven into some of the series. Thankyou so much!
It cost about $139 a year and I don’t have that money lying around I would rather spend it on something else
I absolutely love this app. The quality of the content and the design of this app is outstanding.
This is just what I’ve been looking for.my daughter came home from a retreat in Peru very happy and peaceful. She got me to check this out.Feeling grateful.
I could not recommend this app more! I’ve NEVER EVER written a review for an app but this one deserves it. From the amount and variety of content to the way it is delivered is brilliant. All the meditation teachers have their own style which initially I thought would be quite annoying but it’s actually quite refreshing. I actually now meditate more than I used to because of this app!
I meditate twice a day and while I didn't think I had the time to meditate I have found the benefits of slowing down have actually given me more time. I am more calm and focused. Anxiety level is way down and I am rarely stressed like I was before starting and then expanding my daily meditation practice. I really like the wider variety of teachers in this app and enjoy the different voices and approaches to practicing. I had read Dan Harris’ book which how I got started with this app. Highly recommend.
It’s the best meditation assistant I’ve ever experienced! So glad my son Rick told me about 10% happier
Easy to follow instruction. Clear and precise yet powerful at the same time. Makes one want to continue to practice and learn.
When I opened this app I was advised I would get seven free days and then I would be charged for a year. I missed the window and was charged. I immediately cancelled the subscription so I would not be charged $100 again. Paying for a year was the only option. Today i was managing my subscriptions and saw this app now offers a one month option. I would have been much happier paying for that than a whole year. To add insult to injury the person who has been sending me emails letting me know if I have any questions they would be happy to help just sent a canned response right from Dan Harris book to my question. Very unhappy I paid this price for this app.
So far so good! I just started this app a few days ago, but I’m enjoying the skills and practice of thoughtful & purposeful meditation. Looking forward to seeing how I behave in a month.
I’m loving that I can wake up, grab my airpods and right from my watch go through a morning meditation. Takes off the pressure and makes it super easy. I’d like there to be a complication for the watch faces for quick access! Specially on the infograph modular as it is my favourite.
I absolutely love this app. Wish I could afford to buy. I give it five ⭐️
This app is great for one who has never ever tried meditation. A bit redundant for one who has been at it for awhile, though lessons are clear if you like a good review.
I tried Headspace about a year ago as well as another app I can’t remember the name of. This is my favorite mediation app. It helped me to turn meditating from a daunting task on my to-do list into something I look forward to. I think the best feature is the little video lessons or chats before each actual meditation. Most of us do not have a “meditation teacher” so it’s great to get this kind of insight. I also appreciate the one-on-one opportunity with an actual person: someone reached out to me as soon as I signed up to say they’d be my meditation coach and answer any questions I might have. That’s been quite helpful. I wish I could give this to all my friends but for now I’ll just say it’s a great app. Oh, and there’s a separate tab for sleep meditations-“Sleep Game” is my favorite.
Very well put together. Easy easy to relax.
Nice and easy!! It's a really good start if you you want to get involved in meditación.!! I've found myself being more relax and cheerful which is awesome.!!
Simple but great app. Lots of great meditations led by great people.
Really enjoying this app so far. It's perfect for someone looking to get meditation. The content is excellent throughout.
I'm thoroughly enjoying this app, and am benefiting already.
Has really helped me to make a habit of meditation practice & I really enjoy dan's sense of humour. Makes the videos informative & fun to watch
