Living a Better Life By Smiling

Smiles are very powerful! Have you ever looked into the eyes of someone you love or admire and they suddenly give you that genuine smile glowing in all splendor and sort of blinding everything around them? Well, that’s the power of the smile. From displaying affection to a simply reassurance, a smile can mean a lot to us.

We Don’t Smile Often Enough
Everyone has the ability to smile but some of them sadly choose the path of a more melancholic and serious approach. Smiling doesn’t hurt anyone at all. In fact, a smile is contagious. Have you ever had a moment when you aren’t feeling too happy then somebody passes by with a genuine smile? That could definitely shift your mood around! A smile is very important!

Smiles are healthy way to communicate in a positive language. Just as you’re expected to keep a straight face when you are the bringer of bad news, you should also be able to smile when you are trying to relate positivity towards others. Everyone should smile for at least five minutes a day! Okay, maybe not straight five minutes, but then again people should smile more often.

Smiling Helps in All Aspects of Life
Even in business a smile is very important to showcase respect and understanding towards a certain topic. Not everybody likes to smile. Let’s face it, some people just don’t like smiling at all. This is something that should be changed! Just like how we cry when we are sad, our body reacts in a way that makes us smile when we are happy.
Babies are a perfect example of communication through only two actions. Babies either smile/laugh or cry. As easy as that! Babies display either a positive response through smiling or a negative response through crying. Behind the complexity of our language, the basic communication we use to convey a positive message will always be through smiling.

A Life Without Smiles is Miserable
Going a day without smiling is definite torture and nobody should have to go through that. Some people just can’t find something to smile about. This is understandable for others because of the situational hardships they are going through and although we can’t force people to smile, we ourselves can smile for them and at them. Have you ever tried smiling at a stranger?

Was it weird? Well, it shouldn’t be! You should try to smile more often and to as many people as you can. Start your day off with a smile and end your day with a smile and you’ll see how much it can affect your daily life from the way you think to the way you move. Live life with a smile.
