Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2015 -- Not too many years ago, if you told someone you wanted to meditate they looked at you as if you had two heads. It was for the very religious or highly spiritual. But meditation is now going mainstream and is practiced by athletes, professionals, celebrities and us "just plain folks" everywhere. Its health benefits have been studied and proclaimed widely and it is now being accepted as more than just "o.k." One of the reasons it is catching on mainstream is because of people like Dan Harris. In 2014 Harris of ABC News published a book about his experience with Mindfulness Meditation and how it has helped him cope with the everyday stresses of life as a co-anchor on national news. Jeff Spenard, President of VoiceAmerica stated, "We are very excited to have such a National talent spread the word about meditation on the VoiceAmerica Network." Dan Harris is on this show to tell how meditation has made him "10% Happier." We have the privilege of hearing about it first hand—or as a news anchor would say, "up close and personal." Don't miss hearing what Dan Harris has to say!
