Bite2Smile is campaign created by AlNowair, through which we are encouraging to take a picture of themselves or someone else, biting into a pencil and post it on their Instagram accounts.
The campaign will last till the 20th of May.
To make things interesting we have turned this activity into a contest, where people can post pictures and hashtag them at #bkeifibite2smile and the picture with the highest number of likes at the end of the month will win an amazing goodie bag.
The Bite2Smile campaign is based on the “As if Theory” by Psychologist James Laird. The theory states that when you ‘do’ something, then you experience the feelings that are normally associated with‘doing’ that something. Like smiling can make you feel happy and frowning can make you feel sad. Hence, by acting as if you are happy or a certain type of person you become happy or that certain type of person – and that is what we call the “As If” principle.
We know that emotions cause us to behave in certain ways. Feeling happy makes you smile, and feeling sad makes you frown. However, this commonsense view is incomplete and we want to educate people about it. Expressions (smile/frown) don’t need to be the result of our emotions (happy/sad), even a fake smile has the power to make you happy and we want people to know this and practice it.
