Pursed Lips

I've been noticing in photos of myself that I often have pursed lips. My lips are tightly wound and little fractured lines are starting to appear on the upper lip. Plus, I'm developing sour looking lines like jowls on my lower lip. This is a very bad development. I think I need to create a little touchstone reminder for myself not to clench my lips when I'm thinking, walking, writing, working. Or is this just a sign of nearing 40?

Here's a website for people who obsess about jowls - aka everyone.

One solution I did notice for myself - if I smile I don't clench my lips. More smiling, less jowling.
