Just Smile and You’ll Be Happier

Feelings and actions go hand-in-hand. We often think that actions follow the feelings. When we FEEL happy, we smile. But, because actions and feelings are so closely tied, we can take action to influence our feelings. Start SMILING and we will feel happier.

Try it. It works.

Take it a step further and smile, make eye contact and say “Good morning” (or afternoon or evening) to a person you pass on the street.

This nifty idea is something I was just reading about in Dale Carnegie’s book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” Despite its smarmy sounding title, this book, written in the 1930’s, concisely delivers timeless advice that a person can apply right away to improve their relationships and their lives.
