It's Monday! Time to recover from the weekend and get productive. One of my favorite ways to get motivated and start my day is with a TED Talk. This is one of my favorites! It turns out that smiling is a powerful way to improve your overall wellbeing. This is a great reminder for me this morning, because Mondays are not something that bring an automatic smile to my face. Cinnamon rolls do, Mondays generally don't. So here is a great way to improve your Monday if you don't have a hot fresh cinnamon roll or other favorite pastry. Enjoy!

"Smiling can help reduce the level of stress-enhancing hormones like cortisol, adrenaline and dopamine, increase the level of mood-enhancing hormones like endorphin and reduce overall blood pressure."
