Smile! Smiling is Good for Your Health... :)

Smile! Smiling makes you happy, more attractive and look younger. . . :)

Smile! Smiling makes you look younger.
This is true. Smiling lifts the face and makes you look younger. The muscles you use to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger.

Smile! Smiling makes you more attractive.
Studies show that smiling makes you more attractive, sincere, sociable, and competent. Say you are already attractive--becoming more attractive, is even better, don't you think? And it doesn't cost you a penny. Such a waste of money being spent on cosmetics and Botox to make you look good, when all you need to wear is a smile on your face.

Smile! Smiling is good for your health.
Smiling changes your moods for the better, relieves stress, boosts your immune system, lowers our blood pressure, and releases endorphins, natural pain killers and serotonin... together these three makes you feel good, so smiling is a natural drug. Wow, better than sex.
Scientific studies also show that smiling leads to physiological changes in the brain, actually cooling the blood in the face, which in turn gives a feeling of happiness. Other research has shown that the very act of smiling releases more serotonin, the so-called "happy chemical" in the brain. So, does that include a fake smile? Well, good news for fakers - even a smile that starts out fake, could lead to genuine happiness. Imagine that! Also, Psychologist Professor Diener has found in his research on Subjective Well-Being, happy people live 9 years longer than depressed people. So, SMILE! Smiling makes you happy and happy people live longer than unhappy ones.

Now, let' all try this test...
Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. It's hard. When you smile your body is sending the rest of you a message that "Life is good!"

Smile! Smiling is contagious!
Have you noticed that when you smile at someone, that someone, more often than not, smiles back at you? That's because smiling is contagious. Well, I'd rather catch a smile than catch a cold, wouldn't you? When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier.

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy." - Thich Nhat Hanh
"If you smile you can change yourself, others and your future."- Japanese proverb

So SMILE! A smile is one of the best gifts you can give someone, and it costs nothing at all. Smiling spreads happiness to everyone around us. Wouldn't it be nice if you could make the old Japanese proverb come true?

And remember, it's easier to smile than to frown - it takes 43 facial muscles to create a frown, and only 17 to generate a smile.

So there you go. Smiling makes you more attractive - that's a big plus. Smiling makes you look younger - OMG, that's a HUGE plus. And to top it off, smiling is good for your health.

Three cheers for SMILE. HIP HIP HOORAY!!!

So, are you smiling? Yes? Then, Life is Good, my friend.
