You Feel the Way You Look
All of us are aware that the way we feel shows on our face and in our body language. When we are happy we smile and walk tall. When we are sad, we frown and drag ourselves through the day.
Lately, some fascinating research has revealed that it also works in reverse. A University of California psychologist says that smiling and laughing sets off actual physical processes that make us feel good. And positive body language tends to produce positive attitudes. We often express what we feel in our face and in our posture. So, the next time you are feeling low, try this: Sit up straight. Throw back your shoulders. Breathe deeply. Smile! You will notice a rapid improvement in your state of mind. Why? Because your brain is getting a message from your body saying, I feel great!!
If you find yourself in conflict with a family member, or someone else -- remember that a smiling face and positive body language go a long way towards making a success of a difficult situation. Not only will a smile help to win over the other person, but it will make you feel better about yourself, too.
