I have struggled a lot recently with way too much pain and feeling down. One thing is for sure, just the simple act of forcing a smile on your face does uplift you! That’s right, make yourself smile, even while you are feeling down or angry. Force that smile on your face and your body releases a feel good chemical that does improve your mood.
I was feeling all kinds or anger for many reasons, then I remembered that smiling will help, so I forced a smile on my face and I held that smile there for a full minute. I began to feel better! Every moment I caught myself feeling down I put that smile back on my face and I felt better. I found myself smiling for no reason at all. This really does work!
What do you have to loose… Nothing, except your sadness and anger. The next time you feel down, angry or just not good, force a smile upon your face. Hold that smile there for as long as you can and through out the day remember to smile even when you don’t feel like it. Trust me, your body will send out that feel good chemical and you will improve your mood. I dare you….. Just try it out!
I would love to hear from anyone who has given forth the effort to force the smile upon their face and continue to put that smile there rough the day………….
