The Power of Smiling

The best weekends are those that are an equal mix of productive yet lazy. I took care of some things I’ve been putting off for a while, such as fixing up this website (check out the updated header and the about page). I also continued reading¬†The Paris Wife,¬†napped, and enjoyed many cups of tea.

Last week was rather busy, so I am looking forward to a more relaxed few days ahead with some continued productivity.

Below is a Ted Talk about the power of smiling. Smiling is certainly underrated – studies have proven that those that smile live longer and the simple task also has a great benefit on one’s overall health. So don’t hold back; show your pearly whites!

Have a fabulous week!

Start Your Week Off Right

This weekend was a nice and quiet. I was coerced into watching the Niners vs Giants game yesterday (the first football game I’ve seen in years) and it was a close one. I’m not a football fan, but I had to root for my city, San Francisco.

It’s too bad the Niners won’t be in the Super Bowl. I was looking forward to baking a red velvet cake for our annual Super Bowl party. Now I wonder: will there be any famous spouses or significant others in the audience that I can look forward to seeing?

I like starting off my week by reading or watching something inspirational or happy. For example, I once posted this video about the power of positive thinking.

Here are some inspirational words that have caught my eye on Pinterest.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!
