Correspondent for ABC News and the co-anchor for the weekend edition of Good Morning America, Dan Harris’ book “10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works,” chronicles his quest to make changes in his life after having a panic attack on the air. His route to stress relief was meditation.

In August, he launched a new app called “10% Happier: Meditation for Skeptics,” which offers a 2-week course teaching users how to meditate with Dan Haris and his meditation teacher Joseph Goldstein. It includes daily video lessons that teach meditation and mindfulness essentials, “without any woo-woo,” and guided audio meditations to walk listeners through the practice, and an actual coach from Change Collective.

It’s free to download in the Apple iTunes store, and after three days, users can purchase the course for $19.99. For those who don’t have an iPhone, the program is also available online here.

Each day there is a short video, a guided meditation, and people can exchange texts with their one-on-one coach from Change Collective, Harris explained on air during a GMA segment .
