As September comes to a close and we recall the past few episodes of the Habit Thrive Podcast focusing on Planning Happiness, I have one big question for you: Are you happy?

Right now, right here, are you happy? Is that even an option for you in the present moment?


Maybe not.

If not, then that’s OK.

Because even with all of the tips, exercises and practices we explored this month, we can’t expect to be happy all the time.

Rather, we should take the time to simply be present in the moment - happy or not.

From a yoga perspective, much is written around the idea that our thoughts affect our happiness.

Simply put, if we get to know our thoughts, we can manage them and this influences our happiness.

It’s through this experience of witnessing our thoughts - and perhaps challenging them - that we experience the full array of human emotions and feelings:

  • Happiness
  • Sadness
  • Regret
  • Joy
  • Pride
  • Envy

The list goes on and on.

So in this 13th episode of the Habit Thrive Podcast, I invite you to sit with me in the moment.

Take in the sounds around you.

Notice how you feel.

Notice your thoughts.

Find the snippet of calm, contentment or peace in this moment.

And tell yourself: “Right here, right now, all is OK.”

Because “OK” is a pit stop on the road to happiness.
