Smiles are contagious - try it - you'll like it!

Frown & you frown alone - Smile & the whole world smiles with you! It's lyrics from a song - it's true - I think. also heard that it takes x # of muscles to smile & like 3 times the # to frown - thus, causing wrinkles more abundantly if you are frowning. So just do it - Smile!!

Always smile

I always smile. I find that people respond almost immediately and a connection is born. I don't think about it, because my smiling comes from a thankful heart. It is natural for a happy nature to smile. And people like it. So if you want to smile at people, be happy. Be thankful. It will happen by itself.

Quick True Story

My sister and I never smiled. We laughed hard and loved a good joke and had fun. But, to smile like the girls on TV every minute, we didn't..

One day about 25 years ago we decided to start smiling at everybody we met and see how that went. At first we looked like grinning idiots. The smiles were forced cause we had to think about it each time. We didn't know when a smile was appropriate, or even welcomed. but we learned. We never got good at smiling while we were talking, but did flash a smile at the end of a sentence. It made a difference. We felt more connected to other people.
