Smile--It's Contagious :)

We all know someone who always seems to be cheery, happy, smiling. What is their secret, you might ask yourself. Why is my life not as enjoyable as theirs? The truth is, we all have bad days; none of us are immune to  bad hair days, illness, flat tires, and disappointment. We do, however, have the power to laugh our way through life instead of grumble.

The next time you feel yourself slipping down a negative slope, force yourself to smile for 15 seconds. Studies show that even a "fake smile" has immediate benefits for your mood. Eventually, you'll forget what you were even mad about in the first place--and you might brighten someone else's day in the process. Smiles are contagious after all :) Smile, pass it on!!
