#Balance Brief – expression

 “If you don’t stop making that face, it’s going to last forever”. Who remembers hearing that as a kid? Who remembers our parents threatening us to stop making expressions,
as they might never go away?


Expressions are what make us so very unique and ultimately allow us to show emotion. Positive emotions generate smiles and expressions of comfort and peace, while challenges in our life might generate expressions of dissatisfaction, anxiety
or anger.


It’s always advised to be genuine and express how you feel. It’s also prudent to be aware of your emotions and expressions that follow. In every situation, conversation or circumstance, we lead first with our expressions and second with
what we say. Our expressions can dictate the tone and mood of what comes next. It’s imperative that we are aware.


Try starting a tough conversation or argument with a soft smile and see if the tone changes. Approach the attendant behind the counter with an expression of happiness and genuine interest in their day before you say, “How are you” and watch
what happens.


We are all entitled of having “off” days and letting it show. The default though should be a simple smile, expression of peace and acknowledgement of a positive vibe. Days in our life go notably smoother when this is the norm.
