Try smiling.

Seriously, just act moderately happy. You might even try playing happy music while you work. Just acting happy usually improves my mood.

Why do you want to conceal it? Keeping it in is bad.

When I was at my worst I would do my best to look good.

Because the sadness will not go away even if I shed tears. Someone died

This is a really odd tip. But it's worked for me. I personally hate crying in front of people. It makes me feel weak and small. So whenever I feel tears coming on I pinch my cheeks. It works every time.

Make your default face a poker face. Works for me.

Grief is normal when you are close to someone who died. Expressing that grief may be different in different cultures - for instance my ex husband's family loudly cried and expressed grief all through his grandfather's funeral, while my family was very stoic and didn't shed a tear during my grandmother's funeral. Some cultures will even hire professional mourners to publicly show how much they miss the person who passed away.

Why do you wish to hide your grief? Is that the way your family handles it or is there some other reason?

For the record, my family was only stoic in public. Once everyone who was not directly related had left, and it was just family there, we all had a good cry.

Oh. You hadn't mentioned you were grieving. I'm sorry for your loss.

Sadness is a given when you're grieving, why would you need to cover it up?

I'm sorry to hear that. If you don't mind me asking, who exactly died?
