It’s also okay to be happy for more than just an hour. Even if there are no half price jalapeño poppers involved. And while we’re on the subject, you can have a happy middle too. It’s not just for endings. The point is, society conditions us to make happiness a special treat. It’s something to have once in a while. Like a scoop of ice cream.
The truth is, you don’t have to go to McDonalds to have a happy meal. We may be conditioned to treat happiness like a cheat day but that doesn’t mean we can’t recondition ourselves to allow more happiness into our lives.
The average child smiles 400 times a day. The average adult smiles 20 times a day. The average “happy” adult smiles 40 times a day. There’re a lot of reasons why kids might be happier than adults but that’s a massive deficit in happiness. Let’s look at the science. When our brains feel happy, endorphins are produced and signals are transmitted to our facial muscles that trigger a smile. This is the start of the positive feedback loop of happiness. And here’s where it gets interesting. When our smiling muscles contract, they fire a signal back to the brain, stimulating our reward system, and further increasing our level of endorphins. So, when our brain feels happy, we smile. And when we smile, our brain feels even happier.
And there’s the key. Simply smiling more is a way you can take control of your own happiness. That’s what Joyology is all about. We’ve designed everything we do around the science of happiness.
