Tag Archives: fake it

Goood morning!

Let’s forget about the changing weather, the coldness of the autumn that is slowly crawling in and just keep on smiling.

I find it interesting that if you fake a smile, your brain still reacts to the movement of the facial muscles and ultimately, your smile becomes real. Charles Darwin first posed the idea that emotional responses influence our feelings in 1872. “The free expression by outward signs of an emotion intensi­fies it” he believed. Mimicry. I’ll give it a try. Fake it till you make it, they say. They might be right.

Vimeo to the rescue. Let the good vibes flow.
