SidePATH: Smile

Even if you don’t feel happy, you can fake it.
Pretend to be happy. Who says that if you’re
feeling down, you can’t smile? We fake a
smile often enough when trying to be polite,
why not now?

Try it. A smile, even a put-on smile, is
contagious. Not only will it make others
happy when they return your smile, but, as
studies have shown, smiling relieves tension
and really does make your outlook on life a
lot brighter (cf. Rabbi Nachman’s Wisdom
#43).
