Did you know that by just smiling you relax the 40+ muscles in your face? Yup...it's true! I double dog dare you not to smile while watching this YouTube clip for the documentary 'HAPPY'. You can watch the entire movie on Netflix, for free, if you have a subscription.
I became inspired to write this blog after watching the movie. They talked about the release of dopamine in the brain after an aerobic workout. It's completely true. When you're good to your body, you feel better. I think when you do something that makes you happy, you can alleviate stress, anxiety and depression.
Here are a few of my favorite things!
|Standing on the head really helps spark creativity. If you have hit a writer's block, get on your head and get the creative juices flowing.|
|Dancing always makes me happy.|
|'Funny Face' is one of my favorite movies. Audrey in ANY movie always makes me smile!|
|Puppies having fun always gets me!|
|Honest to God...nothing cuter than little ones in their leotards! Look at those tummies!!!!|
If you couldn't tell, I'm a total girlie girl. These are things that make me smile and thus make me happy! Release some dopamine today, tomorrow and the next day. You can thank me later!!
