how a pencil can add happiness

Just did a wonderful session with elders of whom was 99 years old …we sat and swayed to hawaiian music,laughed when we brushed our hair,laughed at ourselves with pretend mirrors, i showed the power of the pencil held in between smiling lips even when they are eg watching TV, can stimulate the ‘smiling ‘ muscles and proven to release the ‘feel good ‘chemicals ..we did some ‘conscious breathing’ exercises together, and finally with the aid of relaxing music we all did a simple muscle relaxing 10 minutes together . All this was done seated. I was impressed how everyone was willing to have a go and hopefully they took something from the session into their everyday lives .
