Start the Day with a Smile

A smile is certainly more empowering than a pout or grump. Starting with  a smile at the beginning of the day is easier than trying to get there later.

When you smile at someone, you are telling them that they are valued and worth the smile that you just gave them. Smiles are morale boosters and confidence builders.

Research has proven that smiling really does increase attractiveness and likability between humans.

Smiling creates a greater trust and increased interpersonal cooperation.

Smiling at someone can help them to relax and relieve their stress while at the same time, it will make you feel right.

Smiling (even if you do not feel like it) will lift your mood and can make you a happier person.

How to Observe

Challenge yourself to smile more often today. Use a smile to disarm a tense situation, or simply smile during your daily tasks. Use #SmilePowerDay on social media.

Love ya bunches. Hurry back to see us.
