How to stay upbeat in a crazy world?

How to stay upbeat in a crazy world? How to stay positive? How to be authentic? These are the questions that come up time and again, as they did at the Penny Brohn book club last night.
The answer – it takes what the Dalai Lama calls ‘effort’, concentration and repeated practice and a revolutionary practice for we westerners is to smile more – start your day with a smile. The practice is to smile genuinely for 10-15 seconds. The key is the genuineness. If you are naturally experiential, just do it. If you’re more visual, use the power of your mind to recall/anticipate scenes that make smile. Whatever it takes, just do it.
And be on the lookout for any impact this has on your day.
‘I can see for smiles and smiles’.
