Many people do not know that narcissism is a special type of word.

It comes from the story of Narcissus, which was written two thousand years ago.

It’s about a young man who loves himself so greatly that he ends up pissing off the Gods.

They curse him to fall in love with his reflection, and he withers to death, staring at himself in a puddle. Then turns into a small daffodil.

That story—and Snow White—have given mirrors a bad rep.

Mirrors can do lots of things besides keeping our hat hair in check.

If people spent as much time staring at themselves in the mirror as they do on social media, the world would probably be a better place.

Mirrors can help us improve our exercise form.

They can help us improve our form in life in many other ways.

How many chances do we get to look ourselves in the eye and ask, “How are you doing?”

The answer might surprise you.
