Day 12 – Smiling at Strangers

Ever walk around smiling? Just looking out on the world with a smile across your face? No. You really have to try it. Not just because of the chemical reaction smiling has on your own body, but because of the mircocosm of effect it has around you.

I walk around smiling all the time. Ever since I took U of T’s Happy Engineer course I cannot help but smile. Sure, we talked about all the research behind smiling, and I may have read even more about it, but trying it out, trying out the whole smiling thing was it ever life changing.

Try it for a week. Try smiling at the people you see on the street. Try smiling as you hold a door open for someone. It’s life changing and it brings so much joy to your life.
