On bad days it’s hard to find the face that suits your mood.
Some walk around showing their exact emotions, tainting others with their negativity. Others put on a fake smile and no one will ever know what exactly they feel.
Obviously, it’s important not to hide your true feelings – if you’re feeling blue; you’re “allowed” to display it.
At the same time, it’s tough to be around really negative people that can’t see anything optimistic about a dandelion growing on the side of the motorway (as a certain someone).
Studies have shown that not only will a smile affect others around you; it’ll also affect your own mood! Simply put: you trick the brain into believing you’re actually happy!
So, on a gloomy day, wouldn’t it be better to just smile and laugh about how easy it is to bluff your own brain?
Give us a smile in the comments!
PS. Big thanks to everybody who gave me great advice when I was feeling low.
I’m just popping in to say hi! For some reason or another I started cleaning this morning (in Denmark it’s almost 2 in the afternoon).
The thing is, when I start cleaning I better not stop until I’m done. If I do, my mind will trick me into believing I’m finished when I’m really not:
That sort of thing.
D’oh. I think I stayed too long…
