Smiling Eyes January 6, 2011
Dear Michael,

Do this one exercise below and you will end up with a smile on your face.

The best time to practice this is in bed right before you fall asleep and then while in bed when you wake up.  By starting and ending your day with a smile the neuro-chemisty released in the brain and throughout the body has a chance to soak in and resonate.  smile pumkin

And then practice again at various times during the day whenever you feel your energy slipping.

I invite you to continue reading and let the smiles begin.

Quick Changes
Begin with a dead pan face with soft facial muscles and no expression  (you can even start with a frown if that is where you find yourself).  Either way you will end up smiling.


Do this as you read it, it will take 30 to 60 seconds.


1. Very very slowly begin to smile. So slowly that if someone were watching you it would be difficult for them to see any movement of your lips as you begin to smile. The smile should take between 30 and 60 seconds.


2. Feel the slight movement of the corners of your lips as they start to twitch and pull to the side.


3. Notice the sensation of a slight turn upward at the corners of the lips.


4. Notice the pull along the upper lip as the corners start to slowly move.


5. Feel the lower lip start to firm up.


6. Continue with the slow turn of the corners upward and notice the change of sensation between the upper lip and the nose.


7. Feel your cheeks becoming involved and the sensation at the cheek bones.


8. Do your lips start to part in the center or at the sides?


9. As your teeth become exposed what are you feeling?


10. As your smile continues notice your mood and allow it to shift along with the sensations you are feeling.


11. Let the smile continue to include your eyes and feel them open as the muscles around the eyes relax.


12. Feel the full smile with lips parted, cheeks flush and sides of the eyes engaged.


13. Note your thought, mood and feelings right now.

Small Moments Of Happiness
Research on smiling has shown that it is a two way paint on If you physically smile the neurochemistry associated with smiling is triggered.  Therefore, there is a physical reason to feel happier just from moving your face into a smiling position.

And the reverse is also true;  if you respond to some outside event such as a happy occasion, a joke or seeing a loved one you start to smile as the neurochemistry changes and you feel happier.  Smiling is a win win either way.

The key to the happiness associated with the smile is in the eyes.  As the eyes become involved with the smile research has shown a significant increase in the subjective sense of happiness.

A smile may start with the lips but to feel really happy finish  with your eyes.

Happiness: A puppy’s perspective for living in the moment
Yes, dogs do really smile!

How do we know? Well, are you familiar with that open-mouthed grin produced by the canine in your house? Youausten smile might see it when you’re playing with your, golden retriever sending a tennis ball out into the pond a couple of hundred times a night. You may see it when you are doing the same thing with your Irish Terrier in the living room after work. Or your border collie may flash you a huge smile with his pearly whites when you get home from work and take her to the park to play.

Whatever breed your dog is, whatever he likes to do, if he gives you a toothy grin, this is what he learned from YOU, the human being in his life, not from his wild ancestors.

Golf Secrets:  A golfer’s perspective for living in the moment
Golf Smiles

1.  A beautiful golf course which is kept in peak condition.

2.  A great day weather wise – not too hot and certainly    not cold and wet, with perhaps a gentle breeze.

3.  The sight of your first tee shot flying down the middle of the fairway and staying true to your target.

4.   The sound of a long putt “clunking” into the middle of the cup.

5.   Making a decent chip in (or even better, a hole in one).

6.   Making a great recovery shot.

7.   Sitting in the 19th with a drink, talking avidly about the previous 18 holes.
