Today, Make Smiling An Exercise.

Make Smiling An Exercise – Thich Nhat Hanh.

Why should I smile when there is no joy in me?
The answer to that is: Smiling is a practice.
There are over three hundred muscles in your face. When you are angry or fearful, these muscles tense up. The tension in these muscles creates a feeling of hardness.
If you know how to breathe in and produce a smile, however, the tension will disappear – it is what I call “mouth yoga.” Make smiling an exercise. Just breathe in and smile – the tension will disappear and you will feel much better. – Thich Nhat Hanh.
