Life coaching: Smile often for health, happiness

Jul. 15, 2014

Begin every new day with a smile, no matter what!

Why? For starters, a smile is a beautiful thing! It’s a universal symbol of happiness and joy. Smiling is one of the most underrated and powerful gifts we are given at birth. It costs us nothing, yet gives us so much. It’s a tool that we have available to us at every moment to lighten our day, raise our spirits and lift those around us.

But a smile is even more powerful than you may realize. It also has proven physiological benefits. Research around the emotional effect of smiling tells us that the simple, physical act of smiling is an immediate cause of happy feelings.

What’s important about happy feelings? Everything. How you feel determines how you create your life in this very moment.

As the famous quote by Thick Nhat Hanh states: “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
