Hi Everyone, Jessica Lee here, your co-host on Inspire Nation.
If you could use more sunshine, more happiness, and more ear-to-ear grins in your day to help you feel great, then do we have the show for you!
Today I’ll be interviewing my super-happy co-host and ever-loving husband Michael Sandler about the power of the smile, and how we can put it to use on a daily basis or even a minute-by-minute basis!
We’ll talk about the power of smiling to transform your days, your relationships, even your career. We’ll talk about exercises you can do, ways to be contagious…with smiles that is, and even how to smile when the going gets really tough. Plus we’ll talk about the dangers of smiling and why it’s so difficult to do on an over-packed subway car!!!
