HEALTHY REFLECTIONS: The power of a positive face
Have you ever contemplated how much a smile can change a person's day? Both the person who smiles and the one who sees it are positively impacted by such a small act.
I'm lucky in the fact that when I get nervous I smile. This always seems to make people respond to me in a friendly way, which in turn makes me relax!
A few years ago I worked at a job for 10 years where you were not allowed in public without a smile on. When I left the job I spent days not smiling, just to relax my face, LOL! It is quite amazing how tiring it is to smile all day.
I realized that it did make me have a better day. If I would wake up in the morning in a bad mood, I could go to work and feel better just by smiling!
I still smile a lot, but only have to force myself every once in awhile. Maybe some people think I'm crazy when they see me walking down the street or in the grocery store smiling at myself! But I'm sure it also puts a smile on their faces
See how many people's faces you can put a smile on today, just by adding one to your face
