When you smile during a conversation your voice naturally lifts. So you sound happier, and look happier. The person you are interacting with will react in a positive way. This will make your interaction easier and leave you with a feeling of accomplishment

Which was something i never did but inbetween workout if i didnt lose weight or inches...Seeing a beautiful face in the mirror helped me to stay motivated. http://www.marykay.com/acart
Want to go back in the water but dread putting on a wet, cold bathing suit...dryer and second suit not an option?
This should not make any sense at all. You're having a bad day and the last thing you want to do is smile because your feelings are all wrapped up in your bad day and everything is going wrong. Smile. Yep, stretch your face for a second with a big smile. Do you feel slightly better? Do it again. Sure, you've had a bad day. It happens. Try smiling again. Seems a little crazy. But I bet you feel a tiny bit better. What do you have to lose? Smile!
We have so many thing around us... We are so lucky... Watching how the world is crumble, we have to thanks that we are alive!
I work out late at night, and see the same other late-night exercisers at my gym over and over. It seems to be the norm, at ALL the fitness centers I've gone to, to NOT MAKE EYE CONTACT when one is exercising, and definitely to NOT TALK to other exercisers...like we're each in our own private bubble. But since there's such a small, regular group at Snap in the late hours, I've started saying HI to people, and smiling. Let's POP that antisocial bubble, and generate some community and support!
Build this day on a foundation of pleasant thoughts. Never fret at any imperfections that you fear may impede your progress. Remind yourself, as often as necessary, that you have the power to achieve any dream by lifting up your thoughts. You can fly when you decide that you can. Never consider yourself defeated again. Let the vision in your heart be in your life's blueprint. Smile! - Og Mandino
Being amazed and bewildered by small things gets me smiling and reminds me that the little things add up. Ahhing and ohhing over a pretty sunset, bird, bug, boat, drawing, meal, gift, flower or anything at all brings out my inner child. It is awfully hard to feel depressed and discouraged once that inner child is out and an much easier to smile.
In order to be happy, first start acting happy. Develop a genuine smile and laugh a lot.
When something gets tough - new incline on the treadmill, yet another fast song in Zumba class - SMILE! If you remember to smile while you exercise it can make what you're doing seem so much easier. You'll be surprised by what you can accomplish when you're having fun!
Put your left palm on the back of your right shoulder. Put your right palm on the back of your left shoulder. Now SQUEEZE really, really, really tight. Hold. Release when you 1) feel better, 2) stop crying, or 3) start smiling. Repeat as necessary.
When you've had a 'bad' day, look in the mirror, make eye contact and smile (a PROPER smile) for 10 seconds. Our brains are wired to feel good when we see someone smiling. Oh, and smiling when you're exercising helps you keep going!
Everyday I wake up with a positive attitude for just about anything, I find that a smile will help get the day started and a great way for the day to end, no matter how upsetting life is always smile, it helps!
