100 Words: Smile Power

Always be the first to smile.

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.
