Happy times, happening now

From the “Ten Percent Happier” podcast: Stop and recognize happy moments when you’re in the middle of them. Literally stop and say out loud, “This is a happy time.” It’s a way to ground yourself in the joyful parts of your life. We do this with moments of trauma and crisis all the time. Maybe we should flip that script.

👆 This came from the best life advice submissions NYT just put out for 2022. Pretty cool, eh?

Cheers to a great day ahead, celebrating (out loud!) the happy times!
