One Mental Trick That Can Make You Happier Right Now

Happify, a digital platform aimed at helping users lead full and happy lives, merges its founders' expertise in gaming technology and the science-backed benefits of positive psychology. The startup's president Ofer Leidner joined HuffPost Live host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani today to explain how living in the moment is one of the keys to maintaining that positive outlook, and offer strategies for cultivating such happy experiences each day.

"Next time when you drink a cup of water, just be in the moment and try to experience the taste of the water," said Leidner. "Our mind is so much wandering into the future or the past that we're not really living and experiencing anymore what's happening in the present, so it's very important learn how to extract yourself from your busy lifestyle and be in the moment in different places."
