“You can be happier at work if you smile more, even if you have to fake it,” according to an article in the Harvard University Gazette.
Putting on a happy face has positive benefits both for you and the people around you.
That’s true in personal and work relationships.
Smiling makes everyone feel good.
• Smile at your manager and co-workers.
• Smile when you walk in the door and greet your partner.
• Smile when you talk on the phone with your mother.
• Try it right now! Smile and notice how it makes you feel more relaxed and cheerful.
Women smile more than men, according to a Yale University study published in Psychological Bulletin.
