The saying goes that a smile is a universal welcome. When someone smiles, others are more apt to feel like they are walking into a situation that is much more inviting than someone who is scowling or appearing aloof. Smiling makes the world a happier place all around and here is why.
Smiling is an instant mood enhancer
You cannot genuinely smile and be truly sad at the same time. Doing both simultaneously is physically impossible. If you want to be a better mood, find things that make you happy and smile so that you can literally turn that frown upside down.
Smiling makes life more satisfactory
The more you smile, the more you are associating your happiness to the life that you deserve. If you let it, your negativity can hold you back and not allow you to accomplish the things that you are capable of. Adding more smirks into your life can change your complete outlook into one that is more positive and more productive.
Smiling conveys confidence
While you are putting your smile out in the world, you are also telling people, “I got this!” Allowing yourself to smile gives a boost to your self-esteem and makes others want to be in your company simply by the friendly assurance you are boldly exuding.
Smiling makes you more approachable
Who wants to surround themselves with unhappy people? Smiling gives people the go-ahead to come forth and greet you. Smiling extends the sentiment that you are attracting others to feel better in that first moment that you come into contact with them.
Smiling makes people wonder what you are up to
A smile makes those around you curious to what is making you so elated. You will probably get questions as to why you are grinning. Your answers can demonstrate the positive attributes you are experiencing in your life to hopefully send them out some grateful vibes.
Everywhere you look, most people hold a resting face where no emotion emerges at all. When you smile, your friends and loved ones will react to your expression of happiness and this where smiling becomes contagious. You smile. They smile. A stranger will smile, and so forth. Be the reason that joy is being put into the universe. All it takes is one beaming face to help make the world a more delightful place to be in. Be the smiling difference.
