Make Monday Matter....eighteen

Posted by Christina // 8 Replies

Those margaritas were sure tasty going down yesterday. However, the ache in my head tells me I regret them.  Even though I feel like my head is in a vice grip, I’m going to keep a smile on my face today.

Smiling leads to happiness and I am trying to spread happiness all over.  Just call me Johnny HappySeed, or not, I can’t tell you what to do.  But I do think you should smile today…. a lot.  People won’t expect it on a Monday, trust me. make monday matter 18 Did you know that children laugh about 400 times a day.  Take a guess what that number is for adults.  Go on guess, I will tell you a little later.  Let a number settle in your brain.

People who smile are judged to be more pleasant, attractive, sincere, sociable, and competent.  Those are all things that I want to be.  It seems so simple, the more you smile the more people like you.  Unless you are creepy, then your smile just makes you creepier Gary Busey.

Smiling is contagious and besides it keeps you from getting sick, or so I am told.

You know something else, no matter where you go or who you meet a smile can never be misconstrued as a gang sign.  In India it is offensive if you shake with your left hand because that is the hand you use in the restroom if you catch my drift.  These are the things I remember from college.

Have you guessed how many times a day the average adult laughs, did you guess four?  If you did you are way off and need to smile more.  The actual number is fifteen.  The average adult laughs only fifteen times a day.  That means kids laugh twenty-five times more than we do.  Let’s make an effort to change that, at least for today.

Are you a smiley person?
Know any weird cultural customs?
Think Gary Busey is awesome?

    Oh this is a good one! I try to smile a lot but I don’t laugh easily. What most people think is funny I often find to be dumb instead of funny. Guess I should work on trying to laugh more!

      Hahaha….I find myself “fake laughing” a lot at peoples jokes and sarcasm. It feels so good to REALLY laugh though so maybe I should try it more 😉

        I suppose we could start laughing at how bad their jokes are?!? Also, your pins aren’t loading in the sidebar. This is tragic because I check them daily. haha. (I need a life perhaps?)

    I love smiling! Random smiling is even better. Maybe it’s borderline creepy but on occasion you can catch me smiling at random pedestrians with full intent to get them to show some pearly whites.

    Anywho, thanks for the reminder to brush my teeth and get my smile on today!
