I regularly frequent a place that has a yoga studio on the second floor. On my way into the building, the genuine, heartfelt, and happy smiles these yogis greet me with is truly uplifting. It may sound silly, but you can just feel the happiness and warmth behind many of their smiles. It helps set the tone for my entire day.
There is something truly wonderful about a smile. Especially a smile from a stranger. There is nothing more behind it than kindness… A smile costs us absolutely nothing but can certainly help improve the mood of those around us. Energies are contagious, is yours worth catching?
The next time you see a stranger or someone who is struggling, try simply offering them a smile. Peacefully observe the reaction you get, whether positive or negative, and notice the shift within. The simple act of smiling improves our own happiness as well.
Have a good day! 🙂
