Smiling was the last thing I felt like doing today. I wasn’t seeing anyone so my grumpiness couldn’t be spread.

Besides, since forgoing my regular Botox jabs to correct my facial palsy, smiling was increasingly difficult.

But I decided to stretch in the sun  & did a yin online yoga class. The instructor referred throughout the class to a smiling analogy- “we’re happy when we’re smiling but we can also smile to make ourselves happy” was a big influence on choosing to smile & shift my mindset!

So, even if you don’t feel up to smiling or physically doing so, is hard, choose to give it a go. Shift your mindset! #attitude #positivity #mindset #resilience #emmagee
