When we smile to ourselves, it can help to improve our mood - mind and body are so linked and influence each other in both directions. Give it a go - gently smiling to yourself as you meditate.

Change of Perspective
Mindfulness often makes me realize the stress I have, but seldom do I remember the joy I experience through it.
“Breathe out a gentle smile” except there was nothing gentle about my smile. It was big and bright and full of teeth showing! All because I decided to be happy. And it’s the best decision I ever made! #OmShanti #Light #Love
Breathe and smile
Using both the breathe and a smile seems to be the best way to brighten my day!
Blue sky thinking ☀️
I was happily reminded that even the slightest smile lifts up one’s eyes to notice innumerable gifts all around us - a gloriously sunny day and birdsong being among these today. Thank you 🙂🙏
Smiling to Yourself
In this meditation, Jiva has us smile to ourselves as we breathe in. Smiling to myself with each breath, I could feel my heart space becoming full of warmth and love. By the end of this meditation, I noticed that I was smiling from ear to ear beaming with positive energy. Truly, smiling to ourselves while meditating can greatly enhance our mood! Try it and find out! Have a beautiful day! 🙏🏻❤️😊

“Breathing in I smile to myself” ... It is such a simple phrase, but it will make you smile. I was smiling from the 1st In-breath. It was interesting that I noticed about halfway thru I was throat-humming on the out-breath without even trying. This creates a vibration in your chest and body. I will do this on purpose from time to time usually when I am very happy,but this time my body was doing it on its own. I guess that supports her phrase “your mood will follow your face.” Powerful thought!! ❤️😀🍀
I was surprised to realize that I could connect my breath, my heart and my smile.🙂💕 Thank you for your gentle guidance 🙏
Smile - Just What the Doctor Ordered
A smile is universal. We all know it. I awoke still stressed and sad about my roommate. I offered to keep him off the streets, but he has been in a victim state of spirit and can’t see past it for the last 2 years he has been at my house. He is really screwing with the household vibe. Consequences, I didn’t think before I invited him. He is turning into a psychic vampire, but would lose it if I said that to him So this was just the perfect to start the day to leave bad neighborhood that can be my mind and inner monologue.
Smiling as You Breathe In
Thank you for allowing me to begin my day with a smile on my face and in my heart. With a gentle reminder to smile gently as I breathe in, my entire mood was lifted.
Just smile
I learned that practicing smiling, even without any reason, makes me feel good about myself. It made me feel lighter and somewhat peaceful too. But, of course, it’s better if we have many reasons to smile about! It’s a good way to start a day. Thanks for this practice. Namaste 🙏
Intentionally Smile
When our body doesn’t feel very well, our mood can be negatively affected. But, if we can improve our mood, we can improve how our body feels. In this beautiful meditation, Jiva has us intentionally smile to ourselves as we breath in. When I woke up in the middle of the night, this meditation came to my mind for some reason. As I was going through meditations to listen to this morning, this one appeared and I am so thankful it did! When I woke up this morning, I felt sensations of aches and pains in my body. Settling in my chair and repeating Jiva’s words, I began to say, Breathing in, I smile to myself. As I began to smile to myself with each new inhale, the aches and pains seemed to subside a little, my body seemed to become a little lighter and even my mood was improving. By the end of this meditation, my heart center was filled with warmth and I noticed that I was grinning from ear to ear. I know that I will make it a great day despite feeling aches and pains in my body! As we go about our day, remember to periodically intentionally smile to ourself. Doing so will not only relieve some tension in our body, but also will greatly improve our mood and thus, our overall well-being. Namaste 😃🙏🏻❤️☮️
