Shortcut to Happy!

30-second cure for anxiety--smile!

Recently, someone asked me for a shortcut to happiness at work. Yep—shortcut.

This person was having a particularly stressful and anxious day, and needed help—fast!

Here’s what I told her to do:

Smile.

Yep. It’s that easy.

Research has proven that our bodies can inform our minds, actually changing our brain chemistry.

A smile encourages the production of endorphins, which enhances our overall well-being.

So, if you need a quick lift, as the proverbial saying goes: “Turn that frown upside down.”

Change your state of mind. Decide to feel happy.

Decide to smile! :)
