They smile when they aren‘t happy

Fake it till you make it: Simply smiling even if you’re not really feeling it can initiate and perpetuate a good mood and good chemistry naturally.

Therefore, you don’t actually have to feel happy in the moment you smile in order to reap the mood boosting benefits that lead to more joy and greater health.

The takeaway here is that happiness is key for optimal health, and it’s a feeling that you can perpetuate in simple yet meaningful ways, like reminding yourself to take a breath and smile.

Try to get protein from plant sources and fish and choose healthy fats, such as olive oil or canola, rather than saturated fats.

Research shows that the best brain foods are the same ones that protect your heart and blood vessels.
