That was routine. But this was something different. “I felt a bolt of fear rolling up my back, over my shoulders, and down my face, and I couldnt do anything to stop it,” Harris told us. Harris, now a Nightline co-anchor, wrote a memoir that happens to be one of the most accessible, sensible, and hilarious guides to meditation and mindfulness. 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually WorksA True Story , (which just came out in paperback) is an irreverent, painfully honest tale about Harriss journey from being an ambitious, self-lacerating newsman with a recreational drug habit, to becoming an ambitious, self-lacerating newsman with a meditation habit. It offered him more mindfulness. What Harris calls “the biggie” and describes as a “superpower” is “the ability to know whats in your head at any given moment without getting carried away by it.” The result after countless hours of practice and a 10-day silent meditation retreat? “Improved relationships with colleagues, a better product,” he says, “and making the overall day more heedful and successful on a lot of levels including less stress when Im home.

Manchester City Have No Need to Panic About Vincent Kompany’s Rusty Return | Bleacher Report

The fact that it signalled 10 points dropped at home when their recent league successes have been built on imperious form at the Etihad was certainly one. Roberto Mancinis last-gasp title win in 2012 was on the back of just two points dropped at home, and Manuel Pellegrinis first league win as a manager in Europe saw him lose just five. Citys away form will have to pick up the slack if they want to achieve the kind of points total it will take to see off Chelsea come May. And the ease with which Arsenal completed the victory was also surprising. They may have enjoyed little possession, but they soaked up any pressure comfortably, sitting unusually deep and defending in a disciplined manner, hitting City on the break swiftly and incisively, with Santi Cazorla , their chief orchestrator, producing the best individual display at the Etihad by an opposition player since Eden Hazard last February. Citys lack of ideas going forward was also a huge concern, even taking into account the absence of Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri. They were bereft of invention, withseemingly no one capable of grabbing hold of the game and making something happen in the final third.
