|Speaking of smiles reminds me of a simple and refreshingly effective way to meditate suggested by a traditional
Chinese pharmacist in Thailand:|
• Sit comfortably upright in a chair or, if you are used to it, sit yoga-style
on the floor.
• Close your eyes.
• Breathe in and out comfortably and with awareness.
• With each breath out, send a smile to someone who loves you.
More smiling advice: Wear the faintest beginnings of a smile as you go about your day. You are so conditioned to smile
when you feel good that a conscious hint of a smile on your lips can lift your spirits and reduce unnecessary tension from
the outside in.
