LOOK AT THAT FACE

If you're not happy with the way you're feeling, just change the expression on your face. Or move your body into a new posture. Psychiatrist Dr. Martin Grotjahn says the simplest things can affect our mood. "For instance, if you wake up feeling depressed, try smiling," he says. "If your face is in a smiling position, it's impossible to feel depressed. "If you're feeling weak and listless, don't slump. Stand up as straight as possible. You'll feel stronger and more alert." The doctor offers some more tips:
  • If you're sleepy, open your eyes wide -- and you'll feel more awake. 
  • If you're disorganized and your body movements are erratic, you won't be able to think clearly -- so slow down and make deliberate movements. You'll be able to think better. 
  • If you feel tense, just close your eyes and let your arms hang limp. That'll put you in a contemplative mood and you'll feel more relaxed. This can work for both the uptight executive and the housewife who's been stuck in the house with the kids on a rainy day.
