Ok tell me about a smile.
Wikipedia explains that a smile is a facial expression formed by flexing the muscles most notably near both ends of the mouth. The smile can be also around the eyes. Among humans, it is customarily an expression of pleasure, happiness, or amusement, but can also be an involuntary expression of anxiety, in which case it can be known as a grimace.

There is much evidence that smiling is a normal reaction to certain stimuli and occurs regardless of culture. Happiness is most often the cause of a smile.

Benefits of Smiling

Smiling is a Natural Drug: Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three make us feel good that's why people who are naturally happy all the time seem in good health all the time.

Smiling Reduces Stress: Studies have shown that smiling will reduce stress. It's naturally hard to be negative when you are smiling. Smiling changes our facial expression and we tend to relax when our face relaxes. Stress show up in our face and we can even feel the tightness from it, that's why it important to smile and reduces the stress in your life.

Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired:  Not only does smiling make us look refreshed, happy and alive, it also helps to prevent us from looking tired. Take time to put on a smile and look younger.  Even faking a smile makes us feel better.

Smiling means Confidence:  Studies show that smiling people are always more confident people.  When ever we see someone smiling we naturally see them as successful, confident and put together.  People who are up beat and approachable are more likely to be promoted before anyone else. People react to smiling people differently. Smiling people are viewed as friendly, and studies show that companies get more customers and business if they employ smiling people. A smiling person is judged to be more pleasant, attractive, sincere, sociable, and competent than a non-smiling person

Smiling Boosts Your Immune System:  Studies show that smiling helps the immune system to work better. When you smile, immune function improves because you are more relaxed. That's why happy people are very seldom ever sick. Smiling helps prevent flu and colds. So start smiling and cut down on all those visits to the doctor.

Smiling Lowers Your Blood Pressure:  Studies show that  when you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. This is why when someones blood pressure is up we try to lighten the moment by quickly telling a joke or something funny to get the person to calm down because we know that smiling makes a persons blood pressure change. It really does make a difference.

Send a Blessing with a Smile:  Blessings can be given and recieved in many different ways. One of the simpliest and easiest is by giving a smile.  Nothing hard about it so why don't you give it a try. Today, give a stranger one of your smiles.  It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

Fun Facts about Smiling


Smile Quotations

Smiling is infectious,
You can catch it like the flu.
Someone smiled at me today,
And I started smiling too.

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.  ~Phyllis Diller

A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.  ~Charles Gordy

A smile is the light in the window of your face that tells people you're at home.  ~Author Unknown

If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it.  ~Andy Rooney

If you don't start out the day with a smile, it's not too late to start practicing for tomorrow.  ~Author Unknown

A smile costs nothing but gives much.  It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give.  It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.  None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.  Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.  Some people are too tired to give you a smile.  Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.  ~Author Unknown

It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body... the heart.
