You heard me right. I practice smiling during screwed up situations and I advise you to follow the same

They say ” Life is 10 % of what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”.

Give me a chance to toss light on the above articulation. Accepting it is valid, simply envision what amount are we botching the circumstance as opposed to attempting to receive in return.

It’s a characteristic human conduct when in an unfavorable circumstance, Our cerebrum readies our body into a cautious state and we begin to frenzy and set ourselves in a melancholy loaded with uneasiness mode.This disparages our innovative procedure and makes us harp on the circumstance as opposed to finding an answer.

Smiling, involuntarily relaxes the body and acts like a circuit breaker from the negative flow of momentum, hence give us time to think about the situation and get out of it.

Enough of the problem, Here are a couple of hacks:

Deep Breathing: It quiets our mind and also our body. It makes us more joyful and gives us the vitality to handle the circumstance

Count 1–10 (slow counts): This the simplest one.When you are you are amazingly irate and need to damage control before you snap on someone, count from 1–10(or go ahead till you quiet yourself).

Pause: The art of pausing is difficult but yet most effective. This can be utilized for any situation.Before you respond, respite, think and act appropriately.

Divert yourself: Redirecting yourself also can change the condition of your psyche and breaks the negative stream.
