Welcome back to my corner of the web!
Today I am going to talk about smiling.
A smile is a simple expression that can not only make you feel happier, but it can also make the world a happier and brighter place. Today I am going to share ten reasons why you should smile more often and how smiling can help others around you.
Smiling is contagious.
Smiling is very contagious, whenever I see someone smile, I always feel the urge to smile back at them. When I smile at others, most of the time they smile back. When you smile at someone, it gives them a surge of joy and makes them feel happier.
It boosts your immune system: Smiling really can improve your physical health, too. Your body is more relaxed when you smile, which contributes to good health and a stronger immune system.
Stress can permeate our entire being, and can really show up in our faces. Smiling not only helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed but can actually help reduce stress. Believe it or not, smiling can reduce stress even if you don’t feel like smiling or even know that you’re smiling! When you are stressed, take the time to put on a smile. You and those around you will reap the benefits.
Smiling helps you get over your mistakes.
The next time you make a mistake, smile, and laugh it off. Its much better than getting angry with yourself and it helps you stay in a positive mind zone.
It’s easier to smile than to frown: Scientists have discovered that your body has to work harder and use more muscles to frown than it does to smile.
Smiling builds relationships. It bridges the gaps between us: When you smile it draws others closer to you and it’s easier to make friends. No one wants to sit next to someone who is glaring at them. The next time you see someone, turn that frown upside down!
Smiling improves your chance of success. People who smile more think better, are positive, are more likely to tackle new goals and have more opportunities to advance than those who don’t. In short, that often leads to more success.
Smiling helps to show you know God is in charge. We all face troubles in this world, but even in the face of loss and tragedy we can have hope. (1 Thess 4:13) Choosing to smile helps remind you, and others, that your God is big enough to handle it all.
Smiling encourages others.
When you smile, it in encourages others to do their best. It’s like saying “You’ve got this!” It makes them feel important and special, and no matter what they are going through it always makes them feel better.
Smiling is beautiful
You could be the most beautiful person in the world, but if you’re not wearing a smile, its nothing. Smiling is more attractive than makeup and pretty clothes. A smile is beautiful, loving, caring, kind, tender, forgiving, encouraging and amazing.
No matter who you are, what you look like, where you are, remember that you are loved by a king, so keep on smiling and wearing your invisible crown because you are beautiful and wonderful and AWESOME in every way!
