"Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day"

Did you have a big smile on your face today?  Here are some of the health benefits of smiling:
  • smiling makes us attractive - we are drawn to people who smile
  • smiling changes our mood
  • smiling is contagious
  • smiling relieves stress
  • smiling boosts your immune system
  • smiling lowers your blood pressure
  • smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers and serotonin
  • smiling makes you look younger

  • smiling lifts not only your spirits, but observers' spirits too
So if you didn't smile much today, make a point of smiling at a stranger tomorrow.
