How to look confident

Want to hear a fun fact? New York Magazine recently published 50 steps to simple happiness, and they offered this funny trick: If you leave your mouth in that slightly upturned position it takes after saying 'Cheez Whiz,' you'll look relaxed and confident. Huh, who knew? Could be great if you were walking into an interview or feeling nervous at a party.

San said...

Joanna Goddard said...

Sarah said...

Glad I'm not the only one...and hey, it works!

Hollie said...

haha I hope I don't blurt "cheese whiz" next time I'm in an awkward situation!

Dancing Branflake said...

Good to know! @Hollie- haha! I would totally do that.

just call me jo said...

Isn't that expression just a half-baked smile?? I always heard to smile in such situations. And I'm sure they didn't mean like a Cheshire Cat. ;o) Cheez Whizzzz

Melina said...

Great tip! I also love their swimsuits in the last photograph.

Love little random pieces of great advice like this!

Kwil said...

I totally just said "Cheez Whiz" about 5 times. It makes me feel as if I am smiling nervously if I hold though. No?

Hip Hip Gin Gin said...

Fun tip! I just did it a bunch of times and I think I just end up looking....weird? I don't think I'm doing it right. My mouth doesn't so much have a slightly upward thing happening as much as a to the side awkward smile sort of situation. Hmm.

Emma said...

My mouth is naturally very similar to that, and I always get told I look a little smug, or like I have a joke on everyone. Gotta be cautious with it...

Colleen said...

i just tried it too, haha:) thanks for the tip. love that retro photograph in the bathing suits! xo

Anything Fits a Naked Man said...

From now on, I am going to say "Cheez Whiz" before every interview!!

Thanks!!

woolies said...

I'm always trying to remind myself to smile. Now I can just say Cheez Whiz!

Whatever Dee-Dee wants said...

Kelley at My Island Wedding said...

Trove said...

Cute fact!

The thing that will get me smiling (just a little Cheez-Whizz smile) is thinking of everyone sitting at their computer saying "Cheez Whizz". chuckle!

Sarah said...

love this list, sounds like i really need to start getting massages. and i'm going to be saying "cheez whiz" all the time now.

Ann On and On... said...

Was this just a trick to make everyone stop taking themselves so serious?

Good, it worked.

Today's lesson, all you need is a little cheese in your life.

Joanna Goddard said...

kelley, that's a good point! :)

Claire said...

Excellent timing! I have an interview coming up. I'll be saying cheez-wiz while I shop for a suit to wear. Beautiful pics as usual!

alyssa said...

Very interesting. Will try it!

erin :) said...

i like the last tip about the 'cheez whiz.' but i tried looking in the mirror and saying it (i know i'm a nerd :P), and i find myself looking awkward and uncomfortabl - maybe that's my 'relaxed and confident' look? :D

thanks for sharing :)

christina said...

haha. nice trick but i'm not sure about it :)

Destination Inspiration said...

I'm job hunting at the moment actually so thanks for the tip! Although I'll have to remember to say it before I walk into the interviews and not as I get inside. tee hee.
