#212 Dan Harris on panic attacks, meditation and how to be happier

Dan Harris, popular ABC News Anchor and Investigative Reporter had an ‘On Air’ meltdown in front of 5 million people.
When I first received the book I was curious as to how I could have ‘missed’ that, because I watch the News pretty religiously.

Oh, Duh, at the time, I was in the middle of my own full blown health crisis. Oh well.

Not to be deterred or miss anything, I looked up Dan’s ‘panic attack’ online.

Didn’t look too bad to me, of ‘course after 8 years of Interviewing Health Experts and Thought Leaders, I’m used to people saying weird things.

Anyway, lucky for us, Dan’s health ‘crisis’ led him to write his Bestselling Book, ’10% Happier’. His honest and often, believe it or not, funny account of how he dealt with his ‘On Air’ panic attack.

Turns out learning to Meditate was a big part of his recovery.

In this Interview you’ll hear -

His theory of why he had the panic attack in the first place.

How he became interested in the practice of Meditation as a ‘solution’.

What he thinks about ‘self help’ and ‘positive thinking.’

And you’ll hear about his visit to a 10 Day meditation retreat in, of course, California, where he mastered meditation and learned to tame the ‘voice in his head’.

You can hear the Interview Saturday 5/17 at 5 PM on the Radio in Santa Barbara County and San Luis Obispo on AM 1440 or streaming here.

The archived Interview is available here on 5/18/14.

Wellness Talk Radio is an Independently Produced Program by Brian & Kristin Costello. Kristin talked incessantly as a child, and learned to love Radio after she met her husband Brian, and Brian, has been afflicted with a love of Radio since his dad took away his transistor radio at the age of 8.

#210 What to do when your kid has trouble in school

A few weeks ago a parent called me.

She was at her wits end.

Her kid had been kicked out of school.

They’d switched schools once or twice a year for the last 5 years.

She’d heard my Interview with ADHD Expert Dr. Ned Hallowell and wanted to know if I’d tried any of his advice with my own kids.

I felt sad for Cathy.

Because, a few short years ago, I’d been in exactly the same situation.

I’m so glad she called.
