Thanks for popping in.
How’s your day going?
Wurka and Hollick are in town!
It’s been rubbish. One thing after another.
From the minute I woke up until the dentist an hour ago, which culminated in the front crown coming out in the mould we were having to redo because it hadn’t worked a week ago.
We have an expression at Clarity for these occasions:
it’s called a Clusterf**k.
So there’s only one thing for it:
I have decided to start the day again.
RIGHT NOW, before I ruin the rest of Wednesday.
It’s important to know that you can start your day over
at ANY TIME, no matter what time it is.
So if by chance, you have been struggling with things today,
as have I,
then can I ask you to join me ?
STOP. DETACH. BREATHE. SMILE.
Studies suggest that smiling, forced or not,
can have a positive effect on your mood.
Good start to a new day then!
There are lots of other benefits to smiling, you know!
1) Apparently, smiling reduces stress levels.
I tried it. Just on my own (after they’d put the tooth back in mind!) I took myself off to a quiet place,
and smiled at the window and beyond.
It worked instantly.
2) Endorphins are chemicals which make you happier. Turns out smiling releases endorphins. That makes sense. We are always being told that physical exercise is great for releasing endorphins. Smiling sounds a lot more appealing to me than running around the block though!
3) Smiling makes your immune system stronger. When you smile, your body produces white blood cells which help fight illness.
4) You look more attractive and are more approachable.
Pretty logical really. If you’ve got a face like a slapped derriÈre,
nobody’s going to come near you!
It’s ironic really though, that at the very moment when you feel least like smiling, that is when it would benefit you greatly.
Must crack on.
Love & Hugs
