PPD Tip: Smile for Ten Seconds

That's it. Ten seconds. That's all I'm asking you to do. Fake a smile for ten seconds.

In Psych 1, I learned about experiments that show the mood-lifting benefits of a smile. Just the act of smiling makes us feel better. I have tried this trick hundreds of times, and it really helps.

Will a ten second smile experiment cure your PPD? No. But, a daily smile can be one of the many tools that helps you defeat the PPD beast.

Give yourself a ten second smile. You deserve it.
