Sometimes beauty really does come from within

What sort of things do you do, besides a vigorous romp in the hay, that leave you feeling so utterly relaxed and happy that your glow is obvious to random passers-by? What makes your inner light shine so bright that it's utterly contagious?

Back when I lived near a spa that offered sensory-deprivation tanks, I noticed that on my walk home, people's heads would turn. Regardless of their gender, they'd be much more likely to smile and say hi, or even stop and chat for a bit.
I notice the same reaction now after an especially good Pilates or Yoga class, or after a great row, or when I'm walking a group of dogs I love and have lots of fun with. My hair might be straggly and wet, and I'm in my playclothes and smell horrible, and I'm still my average-looking self, but people react as though an impossibly gorgeous person just crossed their paths.
Sure, it's shallow to want more of it, but feeling blissed out seems to make me far more attractive than any makeup or clothing I could ever buy, and it feels far better.
