An Inner Smile

Smiling.   What a wonderful gift to give ourselves and share with others.   All the research points to the impact of smiling...a lot.  Our health, our well-being, our relationships - all benefit from smiling.  So much power is in our ability to smile.  It reminds me that it really is the simple things that make a difference in our lives. Take a moment to close your eyes.  Breathe.  Think of an experience, a beloved animal, someone you love...and smile.   Notice what shifts in your body as you imagine a laser scanning you, collecting evidence for your very own research study.

Feel that smile touch every part of your body and land in your heart.  Set the intention to have that inner smile in your heart be there throughout today.  At the end of today, reflect on the quality of your aliveness and connections.
