Waking up

Not sure how but I stumbled across the name Sam Harris, must have been either in my Twitter feed or a newsletter I have subscribed to.

I tend to wake up early, work out, cold shower & then do 10 mins meditation using the Headspace app. Its a good routine & sets me up for the day ahead. As I say I recently became aware of Sam Harris, I don’t know much about him according to Wikipedia:

“Samuel Benjamin Harris (born April 9, 1967) is an American neuroscientist, philosopher, author, critic of religion,[3] blogger, public intellectual, and podcast host. His work touches on a wide range of topics, including rationality, ethics, free will, neuroscience, meditation, philosophy of mind, politics, Islam, terrorism, and artificial intelligence. He is described as one of the atheistic ‘Four Horsemen of the Non-Apocalypse’, along with Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Daniel Dennett.[4]”

but I downloaded his ‘Waking Up‘ meditation app. I started using this in place of Headspace. It seems to effect me in a much deeper way than Headspace, & I feel totally different after doing a session.

Its early days but I think I will end up paying for ‘Waking Up’ once the free sessions end, can’t put my finger on it but there seems to be something special about it & Sams methods……
