we are sad we slouch, speak slowly and mute and have a generally weak posture.

Anyway, we naturally assume that our internal feelings determine our body
language and that’s true. Though, this process works the other way around as

body of knowledge and practical techniques you can use to boost happiness with

effects on internal states such as mood. The Facial Feedback Hypothesis
suggests that when we smile on purpose we can put ourselves in a better mood.
In a study from the 80s participant should hold a pen with their mouths in one of
two different ways. In one condition the subjects were asked to hold the pen with
their lips only which caused a frown. The other group held the pen with their
teeth only which innervated the facial muscles that were activated when we
smile. Try this yourself and you will see how it feels. Then participants were
