Not every day starts with the sounds of birds chirping, and the warm glow of the morning sun cradling your face. Sometimes, “more often than not”, you wake up to chaos, panic and simply not enough time to get everything done. The chaos, is not just in the world around you but it’s an on going process in your head.
On these days it’s difficult to get your happy face on before arriving at work. So what can you do to help keep the sunny side out?
Well, of course, there are the obvious dietary guidelines we should all follow.
While trying to be a health conscious as possible can have a huge impact on our happiness, consistent, long-term happiness depends on our ability to notice and appreciate the small things in life.
Ten things that make me smile …..
I believe that a smile is one of the most powerful and most underrated gifts that we, as humans, possess. Smiling is contagious and we have a subconscious drive to smile when we see one. A smile given to the right person at the right time could influence what that person does next and the choices they make.
So many of us go through our days dragging our feet, lamenting our struggles, waiting for this or that to happen to cheer us up and we forget that all the while, we have this incredible tool at our disposal. So go on make someones’ day, give them a smile, pass it on.
