Everybody can smile, it’s an ability we’re born with — no need for training. Yet, in our modern world, it’s amazing how many people walk around with frowns.
In addition to allowing us to spread our happiness, smiling stimulates our immune system and relieves stress. When one’s life is overwhelmed with stress and negativity, it’s hard to smile.
Practicing these S-M-I-L-E tips will make smiling easy.
S- is for serve. When you serve, give, or help others, you feel good inside and out, and end up smiling.
M- is for manage. Manage stress and control negativity, which will make you relax and smile.
I- is for inspire. Are we all inspired by people who are upbeat, positive, and passionate? Be the one!
L- is for love. Love people and lighten up the world. What comes back to you is mostly based on what you give out.
E- is for enjoy. Life is short, enjoy the moment, and enjoy whatever you do — read, play, or work.
S-M-I-L-E and you will end up smiling, gaining all the benefits— socially, mentally, emotionally, and physically. You will be on the road to health and happiness.
