While walking, running and cycling to try to prevent my brain tumour from returning, as predicted, I would often be in a kind of brain fog as neurological tiredness starts to creep in. But I discovered that making other people, complete strangers, smile made me smile more and feel so very much better than just a few seconds earlier. So, no matter how bad I was feeling while out for my daily exercise, I would force myself to shoot a smile and a cheery greeting to whichever unfortunate person happened to stray into my target zone. This inevitably made me feel so very much better and seemed to cheer up the recipients no end too, whatever the weather.

Me, Smiling!
Me, Smiling!

I have decided that I am going to try to capture the smiles I receive in return, and publish them on my Challenge social media such as Facebook, Instagram and here on the website in order to let others see these wonderful smiles to make them smile too and feel the joyful benefits.

If I, my wife, daughter, son, or any of these wonderful people’s smiles I have so far managed to capture manage to make you smile, please send me a picture of your smile with your first name and town you live in in order that I might pass it on through my Challenge social media to make more people smile and feel the joyful benefits, and keep the chain reaction of joyful smiles going. Please send me your smiles via email at archie@beatthebeastchallenge.co.uk.
