Neuroscience, psychology and experience: smiling is positive for both the smiler and the “smilee.” Great article on smile research.
Smiling won’t cure grief, but shifts from neutral into feel-good/better. Smiling helps me feel and act better (double-bonus if smile at myself in the mirror). Others get the feel-good benefit, too.
Body Smile: if I feel craptastic and I let my body smile into movement, the good feeling moves into my heart and face.
Smiling is infectious between and within people!
Meet life with a smile — face and body. Notice what gets reflected back. Shine on.
