Stress is all around us.
From the constant ringing of our phones, going through heavy traffic, work deadlines, a messy house when you get home…it’s everywhere.
We see lots of reasons to be stressed out each day and we all know that this won’t serve us in any way.
It is particularly unhealthy to be in a constant state of chaos when we are going through our own weight loss journey.
I’m sharing with you a simple and effective tip that can turn things around.
It’s something you can do any time, any where and you won’t even have to lift a finger to do it.
Can you guess what it is?
Buddhist monk and author, Thich Nhat Hanh wrote, “Sometimes, your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
And I couldn’t agree more.
Research has shown that smiling releases endorphins which are natural pain relievers and seratonin, the hormones that boost your mood and mindset.
Smiling relaxes your brain and de-stresses your body.
It soothes tension that you feel when you’re stressed out and it can lower your blood pressure too.
When you feel calm and peaceful, you tend to choose a healthier lifestyle…from your food choices to your daily activities.
There are so many benefits that you can get from this one simple act.
So what are you waiting for?
Turn that frown upside down and start showing your pearly whites.
Show the world your big, beautiful smile.
Sending You Only Happy Thoughts,
Love and Light,
