Put on a happy face

August 4, 2011

A Great Idea…

“One of the simplest and most effective things you can do to lift your mood is to simply keep a pleasant expression on your face.” (Dan Baker and Cameron Stauth, in their book, What Happy People Know, p. 77)

In Other Words …

There is something about smiling that tunes us to our reasons to be happy. And when we start thinking about reasons to be happy, we may set off a happiness cascade. Smiles are also contagious. By one simple act we can improve our own moods and those of the people around us.

How This Applies to You …

Try smiling right now. How do you feel?
