Smile can change life
Smile is the slide action of moving the cheek in an attractive way. Smiling happens without much thought. It happens in many different ways and for different reasons. Mostly it is done without intention. When you watch a friend doing something silly or embarrassing, you smirk. When a police officer lets you off without a ticket, you grin. And when you are recognized for your top performance in academics or at work, you beam. When you are playing football and you happen to score a goal, you feel something inside you forcing you to smile as a sign of happiness. Smiling is a natural response that shares our happiness with others.
But did you know that smiling also triggers activity in your brain? Yes, there’s serious mind-body connection there in the area of your brain that registers happiness.
How often do you smile in a day? Do you smile when you meet new people? Do you feel excited when you see your friends around you? There are so many good reasons why smiling is good for you, your health and your social life! It makes you forget the worries and give you a hope that things are going to change soon. Remember that mind-body connection we were just talking about? Well, it turns out that the simple act of smiling sends a message to your brain that you’re happy. And when you’re happy, this reaction keeps you feeling blessed spiritually. Smiling is the best thing that anyone could do to make daily life go easy because when you smile, the whole world smiles with you. Ever heard that song, made famous Don Moon? He says that “Be Happy.” In every life there are troubles, but when you worry you make it tough, so don’t ever worry. Just wear that precious smile on your face.
Ever wonder why are we always asked to smile in photos? It’s because people usually look best and happier when smiling.
The next time you’re stressed about work or realize that your favorite jeans feel a little blossom, don’t freak out. Take a few deep breaths and smile! Smiling may help to reduce symptoms associated with anxiety. When that smile signals to your brain that you’re feeling happy (even though you’re not really feeling happy…yet), your body will usually slow its breathing and heart rate.
Reducing stressis so important for health, too, as it can lower blood pressure, improve digestion and regulate blood sugar. Have you ever laughed without smiling? It’s pretty impossible to do. And it’s funny how a smile here and a smile there with friends can turn into a whole fit of hysterical laughter. Numerous studies have been done on health benefits of laughing and how it acts like a mini workout that burns calories and works the abs. Laughter also helps blood flow, lowers blood sugar levels, reduces stress and improves sleep. It may also raise the level of infection-fighting antibodies in the body, which helps boost your immune system. So the moral of this story is smile and laugh often! Smile to your friends, strangers and even enemies and you will adore each other and live in peace.
