Fake it

Your mood is elevated and your stress is reduced if you plaster a big smile on your face, even for a short period of time.

(Frowns have been shown to have the opposite effect.)

The smile doesn't have to be based on real emotion - faking it works.

Try it now, a full, true smile that involves your eyes as well as your mouth. That's almost certainly a more potent mood changer.

And here's a healthy contagion...

If you do it in public, those around you will be lifted as well. Our brains are wired for sociability. In particular, if one person observes another person smile, mirror neurons in that person's brain will light up as if he were smiling herself.

So, smile in private to boost YOUR mood... and why not extend that benefit to those around you by smiling in public?
