While I was getting off the effexor, I used some tricks I will share.
Actually this works for anyone, at any time.
When we smile, even if we do not feel like smiling, we give ourselves a dose of Endorphins. They are the feel good chemical that is natural in our brains.
To give yourself a dose, or many doses, head for a mirror.
Stand in front of it and SMILE!
Then smile again and again at yourself. Try all your smiles, I used to get into playing at this. Because EACH TIME you smile, you are giving yourself natural doses of feel good juice already in our bodies.
This works, if you work it.
It's a way of tricking your body to tell you you feel good.
I can not tell you how many times I have done this, years now…
It works. Everytime…
Wishing you well and smiling at you, Bright Wings
