Shine On

smile

It's true. When you are in a good mood you pass your good mood on to others.  Good thoughts will make you smile and smiling makes your entire face light up (what's the song? You're never fully dressed with out a smile?) According to  Psychology Today smiling will make you prettier :

 

"You’re actually better looking when you smile – and I’m not just trying to butter you up. When you smile, people treat you differently. You’re viewed as attractive, reliable, relaxed and sincere. A study published in the journal Neuropsychologia reported that seeing an attractive smiling face activates your orbitofrontal cortex, the region in your brain that process sensory rewards. This suggests that when you view a person smiling, you actually feel rewarded."

 

See? It's science. So start your Tuesday with an arsenal of good thoughts, if you've had a rough Monday maybe sit down to make a list of things to be happy about. Carry the thoughts throughout the week and not only will you become more attractive but you will pass on your cheerfulness because happiness is contagious, so shine on!
