"Level up their ability to live mindfully. You'll get to eavesdrop on people getting real about the challenges all of us face. I am going to work every day with my mind and chaos. Every day I am getting up and trying the best I can and every night I go to bed feeling like I failed. I'm just waiting for the next bad thing to happen. It feels like I'm afraid of everything. And you'll hear how through meditation, those challenges are transformed. I feel just incredible lightness, like a welling up of joy. It was like I had this permission to enjoy it. All of me is welcome. I have good intentions. Like I want to do good in the world. I'm going to forgive myself. So I can be happy. I might not be a jerk for the rest of my life. What we experience on the inside isn't personal, it's universal. So seeing how someone else goes from stuck to unstuck can be a template for your own breakthrough. In fact, meditation teachers go out of their way to give students this opportunity. And it's my favorite part of my job. I'm here to help you see what's actually possible for you. I want to push you to take a kind and unintimidated look at what gets in your way and embrace the imperfect. And together, we'll have fun with the messy stuff that makes us all human. I haven't done that session with the meditation teacher, but I started virtual therapy this year. Okay, well, you don't have to tell me about your mother if you don't want to. The good thing about meditation is simple. But unfortunate thing is that it's not easy. A simple but not easy describes my experience. Yes. Yo, that's it. So that it's less about how much of this can you endure and much more about how much do you just want to do it? I couldn't have.

"So there's podcast tab that's got A-okay show I heard of from a friend called 10% happier. But in fact, you can find this show 20% happier. And if you get bored, you eventually can take a listen to that other show. I don't know who the host is. I mean, if you're going to pick one show, do the math. That's right. That's right. It's our most statistically effective podcast. I just want to say to the listeners, I have had a chance to listen to many clips of the show, many even more clips than you've just had a chance to listen to. And I know Matthew for a long time. And I know that people were making this show including Marissa and Kimi who were two of the producers. And it's going to be excellent. So I really strongly encourage everybody to check it out. Also want to say, well, Matthew's still here that if you're in the TPH universe, check out our guided meditations and our challenges we're increasingly doing, you're going to see more and more of Matthew on those challenges and right here in the podcast. So that's good news. And I encourage you to keep tuning into what we do because I can promise you more Matthew less Dan. Matthew, thank you. You did phenomenal job with this interview and I really appreciate it. Yeah. My pleasure and I'll see you around. For better or worse, you will. Thanks, Dan. Thank you. Thanks again to Matthew. Love that guy. To listen to 20% happier, Matthews new show, download the 10% happier app wherever you get your apps open it up and tap on the podcasts, tab at the bottom of your screen. By the way, before we go, let's listen to a trailer that we put together for the 10% happier show. Here it is. What up? I'm Matthew Hepburn. When I tell people I'm a meditation teacher, I get asked a lot of the same questions. Can I meditate lying down? Yes. What if I have an itch? Go ahead, scratch it. If I sit for long enough, can I transcend space and time? Time, yes, but not space. But enough about them. Let's talk about you. If you're a fan of 10% happier, you could probably answer a lot of these questions yourself. But my hunch is that despite everything you know about meditation, there's still parts of your life that feel anything but mindful. It's time to change that. Together, we're going to take the insights you get from Dan Harris..

"First place? Such a good question. Yes, I want to say, I really respect your bringing this to this session because there are so many different modes in our life that we have of struggling and suffering. And some are big, you know, you talked about having this real serious fear, you know, over the past year. And they're big and obvious. But many are actually subtle and it's like the suffering of a thousand paper cuts. And yes. Yes. And if they could be drastically shifted, our quality of life our sense of freedom and ease and well-being would feel radically different because it's like these little ways in which we resist life or we fight with things or we struggle, the fills in all these little nooks and crannies. So this is an area that I think will be one that if you are exploring in your meditation practice and start to gain some ground and wisdom and compassion in a sense of freedom, it's really going to yield some serious dividends. I get it. Can you say more about that? What do you pointing to for Harriet that we could all apply in our own lives in those situations where we're just like, I don't want to do this. Well, we're actually just a weird just kicking off the conversation. That was basically a real cliffhanger there. Because you didn't get to hear me say anything except while the potential that's in this question. And I think it's probably it might be a little cavalier of me as a meditation teacher to tell Harriet or a broad number of people like the listeners here. Today, this is how you approach all the little moments of resistance to life that can show up. The first thing that I did with Harriet was really respect that this is going to be one of the most meaningful investigations that she can make as a meditation practitioner, not how can I be less stressed at work, not how can I overcome my habit to overeat or how can I stop my addiction to scrolling on Instagram, but in all the little ways that I feel like I don't want to deal with whatever present moment is showing up. How do I respond to that? And most people don't even get to the point of asking that question. And the answer will start with bringing our attention to that exact area. And most serious meditation practitioners will get here. We talk in the Buddhist contemplative tradition about three types of duca duca the word that's often translated as suffering, but could also be translated as dissatisfactory Ness or struggle or stress. And one of these types of duca duca, which is the pain and difficulty of just things that are unpleasant and not easy to like. So physical pain or terrible smells, right? That's dukkah dukh. And the second type, it's talked about as we pari nama duca, which is, I've heard sometimes translated as the duke of seasonality that that which is pleasing comes to an end. Our favorite show has a series finale and now we've got to find a new show. The middle class American listeners that you may have, right? But anything that has seasonality, whether it's a period of time in our life, our health declines over time. But we probably nama duca is the stress that dissatisfaction, the challenge and the difficulty that things don't last. And that constantly things are changing. The third is Sankara duca. Which is a little bit more difficult to describe and it is the fact that in every moment nothing is even stable for a second. Sometimes I've heard teachers talk about it. It's the duke of entropy. That there is a fundamental instability to every moment of human existence. And much of our human struggles are just in resistance to any of these three levels. But those three levels go quite deep. And if we start to pay attention to any degree that we're struggling with anything from the bad smell to the loss of something that we love, but even to just the fact that we've got to keep up with the constantly shifting sands of the present moment. When we start to pay attention to those struggles and see, how can I not resist this anymore? What might it be like actually to live in harmony with this? That opens a potential for non conflict with life that is way deeper than we might have ever imagined. And so as I hear, Harriet asking this question, I hear a student that's on the cusp of some real potential depth. And so the place that I start as a teacher is commending her exploration and saying, hey, this rabbit hole goes pretty deep. And it can get quite profound. And so this is a place for you to dig into. It reminds me of another expression from the aforementioned Joseph Goldstein, which is he's got all these little Josef isms. A little phrases he uses. And one of them is struggle as a feedback. Noticing when you're struggling or resisting whatever's happening right now. And that should be a little bell to wake you up. That there's something you need to be mindful of. That resonate for you. It resonates for me so much. It's like it's a perfect Arctic. I can't even add anything onto that, but it's, you know, I've actually heard mutual friend colleague of ours, Jeff Warren talk about one of his favorite ways to meditate is just simply to pay attention to if there's any resistance of any kind and just try and open. And that's like a formal meditation practice that's built on that same sensibility that Joseph is talking about. And so it's one of the things that as we develop a true love for contemplative practice. And we see the true potential for a sense of ease and freedom at any moment in life. This is one of the things that all of us become really attuned to us. If I just notice any type of struggle.

"There are, of course, other stressors, including marriage and parenting and Molly talks about that in the next clip. The practice of gratitude starts to train us to look for things to be grateful for. And so it's a really beautiful and powerful practice to do in your relationship. And but I'm so curious about you playing with the whole a whole nother thing on the side. I wonder what in your life routine with your husband? What are the times of day that happen at least a handful of times a week where you feel like you're you don't have a bunch of a bunch of pressure on you? And you're around each other. And you can be casual and relatively at ease. Is there any times like that that come to mind for you? Those times are sadly scarce because two full-time working parents is no joke. But I actually want to suggest that you make him the object of your meditation for like 60 a 120 seconds at a time. And so you make him the bird calls that you're listening to in the morning. And you don't let him know. It's like a secret, you know, undercover practice that you're going to do. And you in the mornings go from there being nature around that you're not tuned into it all to the moment when you close your eyes and all of a sudden it comes alive and you're paying attention to it in a different way. And find a time where he's like washing a dish and you can take 60 seconds in the kitchen and maybe you're interacting a little, but really under under cover, you're just seeing if you can see this person as like a phenomenon. Like, if you looked out over the whole globe, right? There's like geysers shooting off. There's like trees losing their leaves. There's animals, you know, drinking water, and there's this guy who's like washing this mug. And I think that there's gonna be something that happens that bridges some of the qualities that you're experiencing in your daily morning meditation and brings them right into your home and life in relationship. That's very interesting thought. I've never considered making a person object of my meditation, but it's very interesting because what you're asking me to do is what I naturally do for my daughter because she is a phenomenon my home. But so is my husband. I just don't think of him in that way anymore. Yeah, we just forget, you know, you've seen him, you know, put on his shoes, so many freaking times. It doesn't seem to be anything.

"Of the things that I heard you say there was that used the word that you felt like you failed because you weren't able to get yourself to feel better and get back into that headspace. And I could hear as I listened to you that you were employing rain as a tool as a means to try to feel different than you were feeling in the moment. And that is the one thing that will break any meditative tool. No. Okay, continue unpack for me, please. So there's a really common, maybe one of the most common phenomena for human beings every day we're swinging back and forth between experiences that we like and experiences we don't like and some experiences that we don't really care about very much, right? And it is so natural for us and incredibly common to want to have more of the experiences that we like, Gemma not in the car and feeling good. Want more of that. And less of the experiences we don't like. Super complex intense family relationship that feels unresolved and that I'm not too happy with less of that, please. Is that track for you? Yeah, yeah, yeah, that is. That makes a lot of sense and it's pretty reorienting. It's like how human, right? This is what we all do. I love that clip. And it reminds me of a lesson I had to learn and still have to learn all the time. Which is that meditation isn't about feeling a certain way. It is about feeling whatever you're feeling, clearly, so that your emotions, feelings, thoughts urges, et cetera, aren't owning you all the time. I mean, this is, I think something that we all have to learn again and again. And it's a subtle shift in attitude and like I said to Jacqueline in this moment, right? It's like how human. We hear that meditation is supposed to reduce stress. So then we feel stressed and we try and meditation. So we don't feel stressed anymore. I mean, that seems like pretty straightforward. That's how most people go about it. It's how most people do go about it. But the trouble is that meditation instead of being a tool in our hand that we can use to and this is going to be a strange mixed metaphor. I can feel it already. It's going to be two in our hand, we can use to become more connected and aware of our present moment experience. It turns from a tool to a weapon and we use it to fight the present moment experience that we don't want to have. And as soon as that happens, it starts to lose all its power and its function, unfortunately. And all the meditation techniques that have worked so well for us in the past seem to come up short. And we're stuck. Usually just adding fuel to the fire of whatever difficult experience we're going through. But you're asking us to overcome millennia of evolution here where we are sort of reflexively going for the pleasant stuff, recoiling in the face of the unpleasant stuff and numbing out in the face of anything we find neutral. Those are the three habitual responses. You're calling for us to do this radical move of just like hanging out with whatever's there. How do we learn how to do that on the regular? You know, it's actually I was having a conversation with another student of mine in one on one conversation. And he said something that really cracked me up. And he was encapsulating his entire understanding up to this point of meditation practice. And he said, you know what I really understand that I'm doing with all of this is moment by moment and basically just giving a big FU to evolution. And he said, I'm taking it a moment at a time, and I'm saying, I'm not going to follow the evolutionary response to whatever the present stimuli is. So if it's an email that feels threatening, I'm not going to go caveman saber toothed Tiger on this thing. And I'm just going to take that one moment and see if I can connect with a sense of one agency to make a choice in how I respond and two my core values. What matters to me the most, how I actually want to show up in the world. And so, you know, the answer to your question is you can't just flip off any of the either culturally ingrained habits or evolutionarily inherited habits that you may have developed. But you can take it a single moment at a time. And try to have a different relationship to experience than the inner urge tells you that you should have. Well, said, respond not react. It's my the only meditation cliche I actually like as I have said before if I wasn't so afraid of pain, I would get a tattoo somewhere on my body. Said he's the star of this next clip. Can you can you give us a little context before we listen? Well, this conversation, you'll hear, I think really, it's a personal note with me. I'll just say something, you know, about why I actually to start. When I was getting really heavy into meditation practice studying Buddhism and I wanted to spend more and more and more time studying intensively on retreat and less time on the other things in my life. There was a point at which probably I would have run off and joined a monastery, you know, shaved my head, put on robes and not come back. There was a point where I was really, I had that orientation. And a handful of my close friends did exactly that. And some of them are still in robes to this day. And I was in a different life situation. I was one of those statistics that left college just after the financial explosion in 2008. And I graduated with over 6 figures of student debt. And so I spent this period of time where I was falling in love with Dharma practice and wanting to spend all my time on retreat. And needing to hold down a job or multiple jobs in order to make payments on all my privately held student loans..

"Questions about the difference between therapy and working with the meditation teacher, but I'm gonna let those flow out of the clips we're gonna hear. So let's actually let's dive in and start listening to some of these clips. The first one is this first bit of eavesdropping we get to do here is on a conversation between you and a student named Jack Willem. Can you give us some context before we actually listen? Okay, so in this clip, Jacqueline's telling me about a moment where she tried to use her budding meditation practice to help her in a pinch. She was riding in the car with her boyfriend and got a really difficult phone call from a family member who she has a somewhat contentious relationship with. And she tried to use a technique called rain. This is the acronym RAI N and this is a meditation technique that was developed, I believe by Michelle MacDonald, the meditation teacher and has been made very broadly popular by Tara brach. And so Jacqueline is explaining to me what happened as she's tried to use this technique rain and it doesn't seem to have worked so well for her. And just to say, rain stands for recognize allow investigate and N can either be non identification or nurture, I believe. And so it's a little checklist. You can run through in the midst of some sort of emotional storm. One.

"You'll get to listen in on intimate conversations between Matthew and people just like you recognize file meditators because listening in on real people working through real challenges can directly benefit you. As you know here on this show, I talked to meditation teachers, scientists, psychologists, and the occasional celebrity. But for many years, many of you have asked that we focus on regular people, too. So that is what Matthew is going to be doing on his new show, which is out today inside the 10% happier app. So we'll get started with this episode, the special episode with Matthew right after this. Matthew Hepburn, my friend and colleague welcome to the show. Dan Harris, my new nemesis, old friend. Wait, the nemesis is new? Haven't I been your Newman for a long time? Oh, I mean, I haven't been out about it. But now officially, we're making it public. Might as well do it in front of the largest possible audience. That's right. There are larger audiences than just your show Dan. You know that. Oh, wow. It's just shots fired. I like this is gonna go well. As you know, verbal abuse is my love language, so you're in a very safe place for this. This is why we love each other so much. The only thing I resent is that you're better at it than I am. And you're better at meditation than I am. So let me ask you about that. I'm just curious before we get into these amazing audio clips that I'm excited for people to hear. Can you just give us a brief little bio of Matthew Hepburn of how did you get into meditation? How did you become a meditation teacher? Yeah, well, it's interesting because when I think about this question, I can pick anywhere in my life as the place to start, you know, I could start as I was just a very little kid and talk about my parents and the values that they had and how those things ended up contributing to where I am today. It's kind of an interesting story to have to tell, but, you know, if I were going to tell it to you today in a way that maybe is somewhat succinct and also represents some of my own path, I would say that when I was a young adult and the first year that I got to college, I felt like it was kind of a big brave and scary world out there. I felt like none of the adults knew anything that was going on that I was sorely looking for mentors or people that I could trust to give me a clear sense of how to live well in the world. And that I didn't have a clear indication a clear read on where I could take my cues on how to live a human life well. And that happened at the same time as I was going through a major major identity crisis. I had known myself to be first and foremost a performance jazz pianist. And that's what I had gone to school on a scholarship for. And that identity was totally falling apart from me and I was embroiled in a lot of self criticism and self hatred that can show up for kids who are going to art school. And I was looking for a new path and a new identity in the world. And so at the same time that I was having some major grief about the loss of my plans for my future, the loss of the elements of my own positive self regard that I had relied on to help me feel good about how I moved through the world and who I was. At the same time I was reading and listening to anything that I could get my hands on that could teach me about what other human beings before me had learned about how to live well. And so one of the things that I ran into was Buddhist teachings. I think the first thing I read was Herman Hess's Siddhartha. You know, I was a kid. It was like 19 years old. It was a really kind of tender a new time in my life. And so for me, it was a very slow progression between that point and time where I was just getting introduced to these ideas that it was possible to look at your own interiority to live a contemplative life to make the subjective your primary interest and see how you're living and to learn from it and to build a new relationship to life. And it's been a long road from to now. And it was a slow waiting in. I started by meditating every once in a while. Every, you know, a couple weeks or something like that, eventually I started meditating for 5 minutes at a time every day. And slowly, but surely, along the way, every single thing that I learned seemed to come out useful in the proving ground of my own experimentation. And the more that I found that the meditation techniques I was trying were useful, the more time I invested in it. And it took quite some time, but eventually I decided to make a lot of sacrifices in my life. Leave jobs so that I could sit long retreats and things like that. And one thing led to another. And now you just recently graduated from the insight meditation society, teacher training program. Yeah, I'm just coming out of this four year training program to train retreat teachers. And while I've been teaching meditation for the last decade, I'm a student first. And I'm really just kind of beginning my life and learning how to teach meditation. And learning from my mentors about how to do it as best I can. When it comes to the training of.

"Get a chance to listen in on a process that rarely if ever gets aired publicly. Let me step back for a second. A big question many of you may have is, okay, I'm meditating or attempting to regularly meditate, but how do I make it relevant to my actual life? On its own, the practice can for some of us at some times feel a little dumb. I'm watching my breath and so what? This is why having a meditation teacher can be so helpful to remind us why we're doing this thing, or again, why we're attempting to regularly do this thing. But of course, not everybody's lucky or resourceful enough to have a relationship with a meditation teacher. And some of you may feel like even if I did come face to face with a meditation teacher, what would I even ask? There's a cool thing that happens on meditation retreats. Another thing that not everybody will have the luck or gumption to do. Teachers on retreats often hold group sessions where you get a chance to listen in on the questions that the other meditators have. This can be super helpful because you hear questions you might not have thought to ask or because you hear that other people are struggling with the same stuff you're struggling with. Today, on this episode, we're going to give you a version of that. You're going to hear audio clips of real students talking to a real meditation teacher about real-life issues. Issues in their meditation practice and issues related to how to apply meditation to everyday life. And then after each of these little clips, the teacher and I will take a deep dive into the issues that arise in the clips. Said teacher is Matthew Hepburn. For those of you who are users of the 10% happier app, you probably know Matthew as the guy who helps you fall asleep. I'm not being facetious, Matthew has one of the most popular sleep meditations in the app. I promise though this conversation is anything but sleepy, Matthew is an ace. He has spent the last decade teaching meditation in schools, prisons and meditation centers all over the country. He is an incredibly skilled wise and very funny teacher and human being. I can say all of this with some real authority because I have worked alongside Matthew for many, many years at the 10% happier app where he's a staffer and a stalwart on our content team. In this episode, we cover some fascinating issues, including how meditation can make you braver at work undercover practices you can do with your spouse or partner, how to find meaning in everyday annoyances, how to handle fear and the one thing that will break any meditation practice. Before we dive in, I do want to point out something very, very cool. The clips you're going to be hearing have been called from a brand new podcast hosted by Matthew. This new show, which is exclusive to the 10% happier app is called 20% happier. Yes, you heard that correctly. Matthew's going to be taking all of the insights you get from this show, my show and doubling them. As if I wasn't going to be stuck with math jokes for the rest of my life already, having written a book called 10% happier I am now. Doubling.

Tired of robocalls? The FCC is still trying to stop them
"The us about twenty percent of calls to cell phones and forty percent to landlines are robocalls many of them scams and tomorrow is the deadline for voice service providers including some phone companies to show the federal communications commission. What steps. they're taking to stop robocalls. Brad reeves is a professor of computer science at north carolina state university. He said the fcc is telling these companies to be on the lookout for clear signs of fraud for example if your phone company and you have a customer that is sending hundreds of thousands of calls per day but almost none of them get answered. Doesn't necessarily mean you're doing anything illegal but it certainly suspicious and you should be looking into it. So yeah i the fcc has a new system right like technical system that can help weed out the robocalls so the fcc is mandating that all providers either now or within a couple of years implemented set of technical standards called stir and shaken. This is something that changes. How calls are made to add a little token to indicate where the call came from and which provider was responsible for it. So you can think of this kind of like the post office putting a postmark on a stamp. The reason this is important. Is that when you receive a robo call and maybe you call your phone company to complain about it. They have to figure out where that call came from. And before sir shaking it was a laborious process that took days in most cases. Do you think that this is gonna work. I wouldn't bet on it. There are just too many loopholes and ways to bypass the

How You Maximize the Quality of Your Life with Behavioral Scientist Jon Levy
"I'm a person who really throws myself into. Whatever i think might be able to improve the quality of life and so i would do courses and read books and so on and one of the things that i jumped into was a seminar and a seminar leader. Said something that really had me me examined the entire way. My life is set up. He said that the fundamental element that defined the quality of our lives are the people we surround ourselves with and the conversations of behalf of them and he said that means that. If you want to impact your life what you need to do is either change the conversations that you're having with people or change the people you're having them with and that was fundamentally different than what everybody else was saying. I was setting my alarm for like crazy early in the morning and then headaches news eight thousand times and skipping the gym and feeling bad about it and he's now saying maybe you should just hang out with a bunch of people who fitness as part of their life and instead of going to the movies and eating tub of popcorn you'll meet them for a run and then it becomes natural for your life while i'm a science geek. I'm a behavioral scientist now. And so i looked at the research and there was this crazy study. By these two guys chris and fowler and they were actually looking at the obesity epidemic and they were curious does it spread from person to person. I got cold or is it. A percentage of the population like alzheimer's. Right you don't get alzheimer's shook hands with somebody who has alzheimer's and what they found was startling. If you have a friend who's obese your chances increase by forty five percent your friends who don't even know them have a twenty percent increase. Chance and their friends have a five percent increase chant and this kind of effect is true for happiness marriage and divorce trait smoking habits voting habits bitterly. Everything spreads from person to person and so i figured my biggest responsibility for my life would be to not only connect with extraordinary people balloons. It could have really in tact a really meaningful impact on my life but tabs them connect with each other so it spreads further and that was kind of the piffling. The problem is i. frankly didn't come from like when those super connected rich families. My parents are immigrants. And so i had to then figure out how to connect with the people i admired
The Truth About Pandemic Weight Gain
"I've been seeing a lot of reports in the media about how much weight everyone supposedly gained during the pandemic year. And some of these numbers are pretty alarming. One highly regarded source reported an average weight gain of twenty five pounds. Another widely reported survey. Put that number even higher at twenty nine pounds. Meanwhile everyone on social media is bemoaning. The fact that returning to in-person work or school is going to require a whole new wardrobe because they can no longer fasten their so-called hard pants internet memes and jokes aside massive weight gain in a large proportion of the population would have serious implications in the form of increased disease burden risks and disability. Fortunately when you take a closer look at the data the actual situation is not quite as dire or dramatic as news. Reports would suggest one of these reports for example is based on an internet survey conducted by harris poll on behalf of the american psychological association. And contrary to what you may have seen about this in the media the survey did not find that the average person gained twenty nine pounds during the pandemic four in ten of those surveyed actually said that the pandemic did not result in any unwanted weight. Change twenty percent said that they experienced unwanted weight loss as a result of the stress. The remaining forty percent said that the pandemic had led to unwanted weight game and the average reported weight gain in that group was indeed twenty nine pounds but only half of those or twenty percent of all respondents reported gaining more than fifteen pounds. Keep in mind as well that all of these were self reported changes not verified by any actual weight data so it's unclear just how accurate people's reports or recollections
