Just open a bit your lips and smile.
Do you feel better, don’t you?
So, why don’t you smile more often? Do you think that smiling is just something for kids? Don’t be fool, everyone can smile, it’s not something hard nor something you don’t know how to do. We simply give up smiling as we grow up, believing that it just doesn’t suit an adult lifestyle, that if we smile no one will take us seriously. But that’s just a mindset, and if you start smiling again you will soon realise how beautiful it is.
Of course at the beginning someone might stare at you and think that you are mad, but then, once they accustom to your new lifestyle, people around you will start smiling too, bringing fresh happiness into your life.
But why is smiling so important? I will tell you now. Smiling is not just a single action, it also has great impact in your feelings and mood. When you smile you focus on that simple gesture but at the same time you forget what’s wrong with your life. Even if just for a few seconds you focus on what’s good, on what really makes you happy and so you relax yourself and lower anxiety. Moreover, you spread around your happiness making people feel more comfortable.
Having an happier life with happier people around us is certainly what we all looking for, so why don’t give it a chance? If you are willing to give it a try, here you can find some simple key points that you should try to follow:
