Never underestimate the gift of a single smile . . . for others and for you.

Updated: May 26



Smiles. It seems I never get tired of them. No matter who they come from, smiles change something inside of me that I can’t quite understand, nor do I want to. Smiling just feels good. In fact, stop reading right now and smile for five seconds (see what I mean?).


A single smile releases positive mood-enhancing chemicals in the brain.


Aside from the fact that a single smile releases positive mood-enhancing chemicals in the brain called endorphins and removes stress-enhancing chemicals such as dopamine, cortisol, and adrenaline, smiles are contagious and can bring a smile to others’ faces. Ultrasounds have shown we smile when we’re in the womb; we also smile when we’re asleep as babies, and we smile more as kids than we do as adults. So somewhere along the course of our lives (perhaps one Clint Eastwood Western too many), smiling became not so cool anymore, and thus CSDS ensued—Controlled Smile Disorder Syndrome.

Regardless of the psychology of it all, smiling and creating smiles are among the most underutilized assets we have as human beings. Smiles are contagious both in business and in social circumstances, and smiles position us to be more desirable. They have been proven to make us appear more confident and competent than those who don’t smile. There are even correlations between smiling and longevity. Given the stress-reducing and joy-inducing properties of smiling, it both makes sense and brings delight to our senses. That alone should give us something to smile about. J <<SMILE >>


Smile a bit more and stress a bit less today.


ASK YOURSELF

- Have I taken a moment to contemplate the things I have to smile about?

- Is there room for more smiles in my life? Who in my life could use more smiles?
