Do you control your thoughts or do they control you? This week's Happiness Hint looks at how we relate to our thoughts, and how our relationship to them affects our ability to be happy. Then Tahlia talks to Rae Hatherton, author of the best-selling book, Alive: An Energy Plan for Life. She share her own Happiness Hint, Hurdle, Hero and quote.
