Our own HAPPINESS PROJECT!!!!!


Tonight we begin our bi-weekly happiness segments on WEEK-TV. We have some new promo commercials that will be running and we hope we can get your commitment to bring some happiness into your life.

The following is the transcript of the segment and you can check it out verbatim. We ask you this week to do something simple... JUST COMMIT TO SMILING AND SAYING HI TO 5 STRANGERS EACH DAY.

We know this will bring a change within your life in in the next week, and we'd like to hear about your response. Just click below and tell us your experience by committing to this simple technique. We'd love to have you add your comments to the blog and we will be sharing some of your comments on the show in the following weeks.

Here's the segment and the specific GOAL TO ENHANCE YOUR HAPPINESS QUOTIENT.

Your Happiness Matters and tonight we will focus on a brand addition to our Dr. Joy segment. (April 14th)

Gina: Can you tell us a little bit about our new addition?

Joy:
• We’d like to bring some happiness into your life, and with some simple suggestions and your commitment, you’ll be able to really see a change in your life
• Every other week we will focus on Happiness and some current research related to simple techniques that can enhance your Happiness quotient.
• The tips may seem simple, but research has shown these simple changes will make a real difference in your life as you begin your own Happiness Project.

Gina: This sounds like a wonderful addition to our mental health segment. I know we can all use a little happiness in our life, so where should we begin.

Joy: Let’s start with a simple smile.
• Mother Theresa said “peace beings with a smile.” So let’s work on some inner peace.
• Researchers have shown that the facial muscles used in creating the simple act of smiling triggers special brain neurotransmitters that release endorphins and immune boosting T-cells.
• The simple act of smiling
1. lowers our stress hormones
2. produces hormones that stabilizes our blood pressure
3. improves respiration
4. reduces pain
5. speeds up healing
6. lowers our chance of depression
7. Creates a change to stabilize and enhance our mood.
It takes 62 muscles to frown and only 26 muscles to smile….


Gina: So what is our commitment goal for the week?

Joy: Our goal for the week is to COMMIT TO SMILING AND SAYING HI TO 5 STRANGERS EACH DAY FOR A WEEK.
• It’s a simple as that- but you just need to commit to the change.
• If you’d like to share your experiences you can go to WEEK.com and go to ASKDRJOY and click the blog icon and share your response to this exercise on the blog, and hopefully we can share some of your comments during our Happiness segments.
• Your happiness matters and WEEK and I are dedicated to helping you make some empowering changes.

Reaching out can be difficult. Perhaps you would benefit from talking to a mental health professional, your physician, or clergy. If you find yourself depressed you can also call the Peoria Crisis Hotline at 673-7373 which is open 24 hours with someone who will listen and assist.
