Did any of you see the small blurb in the Sunday, April 19th, 2009, San Francisco Chronicle about a new study that showed that people who frown in their high-school yearbook photos are five times more likely to get divorced than people who smile? What do you think about that? The psychologist who was quoted in the paper, Mathew Hertenstein, from DePauw University in Indiana, stated, “Maybe smiling represents a positive disposition toward life. Or maybe smiling people attract other happier people, and the combination may lead to a greater likelihood of a long-lasting marriage. We don’t really know for sure what’s causing it.” Any ideas?
While you’re commenting, I’d surely like to know your response to the 2 previous articles that I posted. Do you and/or your significant other “should” on each other. What happens if you and/or s/he does?
Did you do any of the suggested experiments from the Mind, Body, Emotion connection article? If you did, what was your experience?
I’d like this blog to be a dialogue and I am very interested in what you have to say.
Hope that you’re all surviving the heat without too much discomfort.
