Smiling can change our brain, through this powerful feedback loop. Every day your brain keeps track of your smiles. It knows how often you’ve smiled and which overall emotional state you are in.
On average, children smile over 400 times a day. Whilst happy adults still smile 40-50 times a day, the average, however, is only about 20 times.
So, our mindful focus today is to SMILE a lot!
– Be mindful of your smiles today.
⁃ Were your smiles self-motivated or due to a reaction from seeing others smile.
– Notice how your body feels when you smile.
⁃ Does your mental state change, even just for a moment?
– Does smiling get easier as the day goes on?
