I saw this note in a preview for a book recommendation courtesy of readwise.io and wanted to share it.
The below quote reminds that happiness can be a choice and one way to do that is by… smiling! And I find it funny that it actually takes less muscular effort to smile than it takes to frown.
Smiling will boost your mood no matter what. The act itself will trigger the release of pain-killing, brain-happy endorphins and serotonin. Besides, it’s easier to smile; it takes seventeen muscles to smile and forty-three to frown.) Maybe laugh a little, too.”
