Get happy tip: Smile

Best Nonfiction Book: Child

In Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, she describes a very wonderful, very simple meditation an Indonesian guru once taught her. It goes like this:

1. Sit down.

2. Be totally still.

3. Smile.

Smile deep, deep down. Even smile with your liver.

I need to learn how to do this, really, really bad.

Another book I read recently agreed about the importance of this simple act. It said that smiling actually triggers happy brain chemicals, and that people born without this ability feel a great deal of depression throughout their lives.

So. Smile. Smile more than ever. Smile even when you don’t really feel like it.

Especially when you don’t feel like it.

I dare you.
