Smiling is contagious

I haven’t done a reblog before but I really like this post and feel it is relevant to us all. I have a saying myself “don’t forget to smile cos you never know who is looking” πŸ™‚ Thanks suzjones for this original posting.

Try it!
Did you feel it travel to your eyes?
Did you feel your mood lift as the smile travelled to your brain?
See, it’s contagious.

    Totally agree. I love it when babies smile at me because it’s so unconditional. And going to live in a new place and having the locals smile at you is a beautiful way of saying “welcome”.

    I remember reading one uses less face muscles to smile than to frown… so you know what this lazy sod does… he smiles frowning is too much work…

      good on you Bulldog! I did a bike race once – freezing cold and I was knackered, frowning away and then remembered something my Mom said “the wind will change and your face will stay like that” – I smiled the rest of the ride and actually enjoyed it! May have looked slightly more weird than normal but hey – gave others something to smile at too! πŸ™‚
