Starting your day with a smile is a great way to make everyone around you smile too. Give it a try and see how you brighten up everyone’s day.
It’s true that there are plenty of things in the world to frown about, but there’s also plenty to smile about, and starting your day with a smile can be just the thing you need to brighten up your whole outlook on life. Here are five things that you should always do in the morning to start your day with a smile on your face and make everyone around you smile too.
Smiling is contagious
Did you know that smiling makes people feel more positively about themselves? Smiling can also help reduce stress levels, lower blood pressure, and even improve physical health. All of these benefits happen when we smile just because we felt like it! So the next time you’re feeling down in the dumps, take a look in the mirror and give yourself that warm, happy grin! It’ll put a little pep back into your step and leave everybody feeling better off than they were before.
Smiling makes you more approachable
People who smile are more approachable, which can help people feel safer in their environment. Smiling also lowers blood pressure, reduces the risk of heart attack, and helps us build new connections with strangers by making us more approachable. This all leads to happier lives! I challenge you this week to start your day off by smiling and see how that makes others in your life happy too!
Smiling can boost your mood
Did you know that smiling can actually boost your mood? It releases happy hormones like serotonin and dopamine, which help your brain combat stress, anxiety, anger, and sadness. Plus, when people see someone else smiling at them, their mood can also improve! Try starting every morning with a smile for two weeks as a personal experiment. See if it makes any difference in the people around you or in the overall atmosphere of the workplace!
Smiling can help relieve stress
Did you know that smiling can actually help relieve stress? Studies have shown that smiling for as little as 10 minutes can help lower the levels of cortisol, the hormone linked to stress and anxiety, in your body. Smiling also triggers positive feelings which can improve your mood for the rest of the day!
If you want to start smiling more this week, there are plenty of ways to do so! Smile at yourself in the mirror before going out in public or take time during your lunch break to chat with coworkers. If you’re not sure what will work best for you, just start small by doing one thing each day that makes YOU happy! After all, every smile counts!
Smiling is a great way to start your day
Are there mornings when you’re just not in the mood? I know that feeling all too well, but what I’ve found recently is that no matter how down I am, if I can muster up a little bit of effort, then I’ll be rewarded for my efforts. The reward isn’t only for me either – It’s for the people around me as well! We all know the saying Smile and the world smiles with you. That couldn’t be more true than it is when starting your day with a smile!
The first thing that happened when I started doing this was that my coworkers began noticing that something was different about me; they could tell that things were going better for me now than they had been before.
