As they say "Smiling is the great medicine" I absolutely agree 100% because it can literally change the mood instantaneously.
I am not gonna lie but stress is one of the emotions which I can't avoid or even 'we' can't escape. There are many daily activities, as well as, people' behavior that eventually cause us tension. However, I have been reading self-improvement books for more than 7 years in order to keep myself staying positive. Call me crazy, I think that smiling is the best cure from undesirable mood because it changes my feelings from negative to positive effectively.
At first I doubted if smiling would really change my feelings or was it just something that the books recommend for their own sake. Even though smiling didn't work for me in the beginning, I had been trying to make it work (Fake it til you make it!). Every time I come across the unexpected situations or unpleasing words/comments from people, I try my best to tell myself "you'd better smile right now" And 5 minutes later, my moods are quickly change from anger to loosen up and finally calm.
I am the type of the person who stuck in my own thoughts, I keep repeating my ideas again and again until it drives me crazy. I get stressed all the time, so it is very crucial for me or even us all to loosen up and choose to stay positive instead of letting bad feelings overwhelm. I rarely feel hatred or angry towards others because why should I? I am one of those relaxing people and I opt for only positive vibe to make myself become peaceful in my own thoughts.
I don't know about you but whenever I feel stress, I say "oh f*** it" then I am back to the calmness state of my mind.
