Maybe this is a very American thing, but I truly believe in "fake it 'til you make it".very much faking service person
If I was tired and not feeling well, my classroom full of up to 36 adult students still wanted/needed a high-energy, engaging 6.5 hour class. I would paste a pleasant look on my face, and try to be energetic through my 10 min or so introductory morning routine. By the time we were ready to start the class material, I was feeling positive and energized and that was enough to get me through the day. If I hadn't "faked" the energy in the beginning of the day, it would have been a miserable interminable day for me and my students alike, not to mention that they probably wouldn't have learned as much.
