7 Ways to Keep You Smiling in June
June is National Smile Month and that means showing off your pearly whites more than usual. A smile will make you and those around you feel good. If you need ideas to keep your grin wide, try our 7 suggestions: 1. Take a friend out for ice cream. The only thing better than cold ice cream on a hot summer day is to share it with a friend! 2. Exercise. Get those positive thoughts and endorphins going strong! Take a class or work out on your own. Regular exercise makes you feel good. 3. Step away from the computer. Even if it’s only for a few minutes, take a break from e-mail, the Internet, texts and tweets. Your overloaded brain will thank you. 4. Walk in nature. Remember what it’s like to feel a cool breeze on your face or sit under a tree? Enjoy the outdoors. 5. Try yoga. So you’re not as flexible as you’d like to be. It doesn’t matter. Yoga is good for your body, mind and spirit. 6. Hug your pet. The best thing about your animals is they love you no matter what. Take your dog on a walk or brush out your cat. They’ll love you even more. 7. Spend quality time with family. Don’t vegetate in front of the TV or computer. Take a family walk or bike ride. Do an activity you all enjoy. Happy times together will make you smile!
