Funny old times we are living in at the minute, and sometimes it is the last thing we feel like doing....but please NEVER underestimate the power of a SMILE!!
The uplift and the amazing amount of energy you can gift another human being, simply by smiling, is immeasurable. And, it costs nothing!!
But also, even more motivating, it can give you, the Smiler , an energy boost, and it releases masses of endorphins and cortisol, that have numerous health benefits. Win win!
Today is depressingly known as Blue Monday...
Let's change this!! Even if we are wearing masks, you can still smile with your eyes people!!
The average child smiles 400 times a day!!
The average happy adult 40-50...
And the average typical adult, only 20 times
This picture brings me back to a very happy time mountain biking in Tibet & Nepal.
We were setting up our camp after a long, sweaty day on the bike when some local children invaded our tents!
All we had to give them were our Snicker bar rations (it was either that or our bicycle tubes, and we reckoned they'd be a little more valuable for the next week in the hills!)
Next day as I was crawling up yet another hill, salivating at the thoughts of a Snickers bar, I thought back to those children and their smiles.
The energy their smiles gave me, you could never eat enough bars to get even close!
Smile people, and spread it!
