“I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favorite!”
-Buddy the Elf
Do you ever notice how often people smile (or don’t) in public? While looking around lately, I have noticed the majority of people do not.
Are they grumpy, or do they just…well…forget to smile? There are probably many reasons people walk around with such serious faces, and it’s time to do something about it.
For your sake, for the world’s sake, and for Buddy’s sake, it’s time for us to launch the Smile Revolution!
It begins right here, right now. It’s simple, free, and will make the world a better place.
Are you ready for it?
Okay, here we go…
The next time you’re driving your car – put on your happy face!
Walking around in public? Cheese it up!
Looking around at a store? You guessed it – show off your pearly whites.
Just in case you are unaware, grinning provides huge benefits for you and those around you! Research demonstrates that smiling (even if you force it) will…
- Boost your mood.
- Reduce Stress.
- Positively affect others.
I have tested this many times. When walking around a store with Mr. Serious Face, others glance at me momentarily and then look away. Their expression rarely changes. On the flip side, when I smile, others tend to hold my gaze longer and often smile back at me.
When I wear a grin, I also feel more upbeat and positive. What an amazingly easy way to boost happiness!
Simple, yet revolutionary. Smile, and you will make yourself and others feel better. Who knows? You may even change the world for the better.
Two Action Steps:
- Smile more
- Cheese it up for a selfie and post it in the comments.
To our best tomorrow,
P.S. My lovely daughters joined the revolution by adding some art to the party.
