1. Relax your face
Relax the muscles in your face if you tend to tense up. Make sure your lips and teeth don’t press together. Pay extra attention to the areas around your eyes.

Smile slightly with the corners of your mouth if you usually frown. Don’t just smile when you meet people, but make it a habit to do it in general. It will feel weird before you make it a habit.
