Before you go on the ice SMILE . A person can actually alter his or her feeling state by putting on a happy face.
Whether you like it or not, place your facial muscles in the smile position for 4-10 seconds as many as times a day as possible. By doing this, you have actually altered your blood chemistry. The natural opiates in your system and neuro-peptides in your system change. These opiates and neuro-peptides are located not only in your brain but your stomach and intestines as well. By smiling you increase the natural opiates -you feel better, look better, and are able to perform better too.
