Day 11: Smile a little more

Friday! Lots of reasons for you to smile. I suspect this may be honestly quite hard for many of us hardened doctors and intense type A narcissistic surgeons. Try it. Smile a little more than usual. You don’t have to be weirdly happy like you were taking excessive happy pills. Just put on a gentle smile that is a little more than your usual natural predisposition. See how that smile would affect your mood and how others respond to your smile. Smile at strangers you meet in hospitals. I am certain it would make you a little happier and make others a little happier to be around you. Go on. Break your own record. See if you can smile the longest ever in your life today.

@iVerbalise Put yourself in the patients’ shoes. Always end with a smile & ensure they know you care
