It's ok to fake it
We don't always feel in the mood to sport a giant smile for all the world to see. But just as we try to eat better and become more active, we can also increase our smile time. Smiling, even if it's fake can allow positive messages to be sent to our brain creating a chain reaction that sometimes can even lead us to smile genuinely. Practice your smile while driving, in a fitness class or watching a concert. Smile at the grocery store cashier, smile at your co-worker, smile at your cat. The more we practice this instant mood lifting technique, the better we just might feel.
