Play the Smile Game

For most of my life, I suffered throughout with extreme social anxiety. One of the ways that would manifest would be an avoiding eye contact. Eye contact with people used to freak me out.

I wanted to break this cycle. However, I knew it was not going to be easy. That is when I remembered something I read in Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell. There were these two scientists who discovered, by studying facial expressions, that there was a link between your facial expression and how you feel.

Meaning that if you smile, you will feel good. That gave me an idea. To help me be more social, I would smile at strangers while walking down the street. If they smiled back, we both win. If they didn’t smile back, I still won, because I was feeling good because I was smiling. Plus, it is not like I could or would even want to force someone to smile.

The smile game was a smashing success. I got to learn how to make eye contact with people and got to feel good while doing it. Smiling was very hard for me at first. I generally would space out or look down. Now I hold my head up high and smile while having a great time.

If you want to spread more joy in this world, I suggest trying out the smile game. Later I learned about mirror neurons, which are neurons that mirror other people who you have a brief connection. Basically, to understand what you feel, their brain fires similar neurons that create that feeling so you can understand their feeling. Meaning, there is a chance that even though they didn’t smile back, you did spread some joy. How cool is that?
There is more information about the smile game in my book, Joyous Expansion.

Do you suffer from social anxiety?

Do you suffer from social anxiety? Do you let what other say about you get in your way?

I know I used to. Anxiety has been a huge part of my life for a very long time. I remember when I was in high school one of my biggest fears was someone waving at me and I wasn’t sure if they were waving at me.

That wave would cause a mile a minute conversation in my head of everything I should do at that moment and no matter what choice I made, it was the wrong choice. Everyone would laugh at me and everyone would judge me, FOREVER!

It was like I lived in a world where I was the center of attention and everyone was judging everything I did and everything I did was wrong.

Luckily I turned it around. I decided to figure out the key to becoming joy filled and no longer stuck in my prison of fear. I discovered the key to self-love and dedicated my life to learning how to love myself. I used intentions to get me to focus on what I wanted. I used inspired actions to get me to do the exercises I needed, such as telling myself, “I love you” in a mirror. I celebrated every accomplishment, like the time I was able to laugh off someone waving at me, and waving back, and the wave wasn’t meant for me, then I just moved on with my life.

I have felt so joy filled ever since I have let go of that voice in my head. It has allowed me to move forward. I still have that voice, however, I do have the tools and thoughts available to me to move past that voice and create the life I desire.

If you are interested in having more joy in your life and letting go of your anxiety, I wrote a book that just might interest you.

Joyous Expansion: Unleashing Your Passions to Lead an Inspired Life contains all of the information I used to let go of my demons and move forward in my life. I am so happy I made my transformation.

Easy way to feel good right now? Laugh.

Yes, the saying is that laughter is the best medicine. While that saying is not 100% true, laughing has some amazing benefits.

Laughter helps lower blood pressure, is a natural pick me up and reduces pain. I know I have trained myself to laugh when I accidentally hurt myself. When that happens I almost instantly feel better. It is easy, it is funny when I do something stupid.

You might be thinking that it is hard to laugh on command. It is actually very easy. Just fake it until you make it. Faking it works so well because fake laughing is silly. When you do something silly, it is easy to laugh at something silly. The more you laugh at how silly you are, the more you will laugh. it is just that easy. The video below I explain it even more.

I challenge you to take some time out of your day and just laugh. Laugh for the best reason, no reason, because laughing feels good.

You can also learn how to capture that feeling and utilize it to change your life with the Emotion Elation Engine.

Imagine what you can do if your emotions were aligned with your actions. If you no longer let bad feelings from getting you started, keeping you going or feeling overwhelmed. Now you have a way to kick those problems to the curb.
