We all strive to be genuinely happy but sometimes life gets in the way. No matter what is going on in your life, things will turn around with time. In the meantime, a smile goes a long way. HAPPINESS HACKS shares why smiling is so important.
Sometimes when it comes to feeling happy, you have to fake it ‘til you make it, so force yourself to smile. Now hold that smile for a count of ten. Think to yourself, “I am happy. I am totally, blissfully happy.” You’ll notice that your mood will begin to shift. You can’t help but feel a little lighter. Use your smile to start a happiness epidemic! Smile at everyone, everywhere. People are hardwired to respond to the facial expressions they encounter. If you glower at someone, that person will return a frown, but if you smile, you’ll get a smile back. You’ll feel happier, too, because your body will respond to your smile even if you are faking the grin. So go ahead—fake it until you genuinely feel happy!
We know you’ll be smiling ear-to-ear with help from our friend, Manny the Frenchie.
