A positive attitude helps you to live your life cheerfully.…
The old adage of Charles Darwin still holds true that facial expressions may actively intensify feelings. A smile indeed feeds our mood, makes us feel elated and even uplifts the mood of those around us. In our quest to craft a better world, we are often confronted with situations that subjugate our indomitable burning desire to make a difference in our professional career and everything turns meaningless. Professional career runs the gamut of emotions and it is a part and parcel of life. The moot question is, apart from the struggles, do we manage to laugh, smile and have a good time?
Smile is the secret to all atonements. Similarly, a smile can be the underlying disguise to uplift our professional qualifications and an overpowering garnish to raise our professional lives up a notch. A Duchenne smile or a genuinely authentic smile exemplifies more satisfaction with our ability to accomplish even a trivial task at work which in turn emboldens us to achieve more.
Let alone the striking remembrance onto the minds of our bosses who might forget to smile amidst the piles of workload. A genuine smile stipulates a harmonious, stable and trustworthy relationship with the colleagues and might even bear the power to alleviate the spirits of a fellow peer facing a bad day.
Merely a curve on the face concocts moments of connection that lead to higher productivity and efficient teamwork. It can be a warm and comforting gesture for the clients, and subsequently an incorporation in the executive goodwill. The viral video of an impromptu celebration by the medical professionals who danced and sang at Zingaat in PPE kits in NESCO, a Mumbai Covid Care Centre, not only had a blast but also successfully relieved the stressful ebbing environment of the second wave. The hilarious courtroom exchange between Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi and Former Hon’ble CJI SA Bobde at the Apex Court is just another example of how humorous remarks eases pressure in our seemingly monotonous professional lives.
Whoever says we don’t need reasons to smile are living in an idealistic world and whoever says our smiles are contingent on one reason are living in a toxic world but whoever says we need to find reasons to smile are living in the real world or trying to live, to say the least. Albeit, quite a great deal of times, we might not find reasons to put on a smile within and around our workplaces.
when ‘stay positive!’ is nothing but an expression of mundane words. Choosing a profession which makes us smile like we slept with a hanger in our mouths indeed sounds utopian. But even if we wake up to one such dream, pushing ourselves every minute of every day by doing loads of tedious work, might tire us and smiling may be a far off alternative. However if we tough it out together by smiling through the rough days I believe good days will come in the end. Fake it till you make it! A simple curve on our faces tricks our brains into believing we’re happy which can then spur actual feelings of happiness.
Forcing a smile can reduce stress and lower heart rate. Tense and scary situations which we are often compelled to face in dealing with our multifarious personal drawbacks like lack of confidence or inability of self-articulation and motley exhausting professional issues like meeting deadlines or dealing with clients, will pass us by like a walk in the rain if only we manage to put on the cheapest, most promptly accessible accessory when we enter the professional spheres of social life- a smile.
