Ya know, people always say smile at yourself in the mirror because it will lift the spirits and brighten the day, and actually, it totally works.
If you’re feeling lonely and you don’t have someone around who can constantly make you smile, then you have to be your own happy-go-lucky super trooper. Find a mirror or a selfiestick, look yourself in whichever of your eyes you prefer, and flash those pearly whites at your reflection with genuine adoration. If the endorphins don’t kick in right away, you can bet the embarrassing nerves will flutter their way to your senses, convincing your rational side that you’ve officially gone cray cray, so just go with it. Let yourself laugh at the fact that you just forcibly smiled at yourself, then let the positive affirmations flow throughout your day like a sparkly waterfall of good energy rushing out of every pore on your body.
It’s the same thing as eating a small breakfast to get the metabolism cranking away at those calories. When you start the day off with a solid grin in the mirror, your destined to follow that positive path, laughing at the little things, and smiling in the face of a frown.
