As a child I once said ‘if everyone had smiley face underwear then everyone would be happy’. I laugh out loud each time I hear this, but I also think how true it is that it can be simple how we find our happiness. It may not be easy for us to see it or get there, but ultimately it is the simplest things that bring us joy and happiness.
Maybe yellow underwear with smiley faces aren’t the answer for you, but try and find something that every time you look at it, it makes you smile? Try to keep it close to your heart or mind always. When you feel yourself getting tense or stressed see if you can remind yourself of that playful thing that makes you smile.
Playful Practice: release your tongue from the roof of your mouth. Relax the jaw, and allow the corners of your mouth to turn up.
Live light, because everything is already okay.
