3. Ten Percent Happier Meditation
If you could be 10% happier would you? This app is brought to you by #1 New York Times bestseller, ABC news anchor Dan Harris who had an on-air panic attack in 2004 which prompted him to search for a better way to deal with the voice in his head and be less yanked around by his emotions.
The app is designed to help you sleep better, be more mindful, improve your relationships, and become just about ten percent happier.
In the workforce, we tend to spend most of the day completing tasks for others and we forget to spend a moment focusing on ourselves. A balance between our work and personal lives is a fine line. With a helpful meditation app, you can take a step away from the pressure and stress of your work and take a moment to care for your mental and emotional health.
4. Motivational Podcasts

Known for his best-selling book The 4 Hour Workweek, Tim Ferris’s podcast The Time Ferris Show is a great motivational resource for everyone in the workforce.
If you need help getting rid of and cutting ties with things, people and situations that will bring you down or be a distraction to your end goal, The Minimalists podcast is for you! The Minimalists blog is actually the blog that influenced me to start my blog! Their blog is also what inspired me to create a workplace wellness resource that is simple and easily understood by the variety of people within the workforce.
5. Self Help Books
If you read my blog post How Poor Sleep Affects Your Worklife and What You Can Do About It then you know I’m a big fan of self help books!
These are just a couple of my favorites that have heavily influence my outlook on life and how I motivate myself to keep trying even when failure knocks me down a few pegs.

Wellness incorporates a wide range of mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects. Using self help books are great ways to touch on those aspects and improve your mental toughness, build resilience, manage stress and be the best you. I’ve found a lot of confidence within myself and my abilities after reading self help books and I bet you can too!
