As you may know, my exercise program of choice is T-Tapp. With the T-Tapp workout you're involving so much of your body during each movement, that it can be a lot to think about. (Toes forward, butt tucked, shoulders in alignment, bent knees to KLT, curling your core/pressing lower back, lift ribs, set lats, etc, etc, etc. See what I mean!) Adding one more thing, like a smile, can take your workout to the next level. Try it! I like to smile at myself in the mirror when I get to the tough exercises, especially the ones I don't feel like doing. It makes a difference! Smiling makes me lighten up and I seem to be able to get through the movement a bit easier.
Believe it or not, smiling has health benefits too! Check out these Top 10 Reasons to Smile:
- Smiling makes us attractive
- Smiling changes our mood
- Smiling is contagious
- Smiling relieves stress
- Smiling boosts the immune system
- Smiling lowers blood pressure
- Smiling releases endorphins (ie: natural pain killers and seratonin!)
- Smiling lifts the face and makes us look younger
- Smiling makes you seem successful
- Smiling helps you stay positive
