A simple smile can change your day. Fake or from the heart a smile from a friend or foe, or a complete stranger can brighten your mood in an instant. Never underestimate that power for you may not know how big of a difference you have made to someone's day or life by turning their frown upside down. How many times have you been feeling a little down and some one has simply smiled your way and everything just seems that little bit better. A little less worry, nerves, stress, anger felt by one simple facial expression. Is it because it is one of those universal traits that we all recognize? Any where in the world we smile at strangers and they smile back (even if it's only some times on the inside).
“Smiling stimulates our brain’s reward mechanisms in a way that even chocolate, a well-regarded pleasure-inducer, cannot match.” Leo Widrich
Spread the love starting today and start surrounding yourself with smiles. Even if you have to fake it to start with, smile in the mirror, smile in a window, smile at your friends, family and total strangers. Start to notice the positive changes surrounding yourself. Feel the endorphins. It is only when we start to change ourselves for the better we start to feel happier and live more balanced lifestyles.
Happy wandering xx
