How about this week?!
A bit overwhelmed? Concerned over the seemingly-etched furrow lines dotting your brow?
Do us a favor and SMILE.
Yup – take a quick second and smile at yourself in the mirror / computer monitor / selfie view of your phone.
Big tooth grin – complete!
Feeling Better? Us too. Studies have shown that taking a few moments to smile (or chuckle – which some of us also did while looking at ourselves in our selfie-cam) will decrease your stress levels. Less stress (and even just a TEENSY bit of less stress) means, better interactions, happier direct reports, and lots of health benefits.
Next time you’re feeling stressed – force a smile. It’ll help!
