How do you feel when somebody smiles at you? Do you smile back?

You just might light up someones day! You might just bring the warmth of sunshine to someone by just that one act of kindness. So show a big sincere smile as you interact with people. Sometimes that smile may be the make it or break it for them that day. That smile just might encourage them to continue on.

More Muscles

So we use less muscles when we smile than when we frown. So turn that frown upside down and … SMILE!

Sunshine!

Some food for thought to remember no matter the weather outside, snow, rain, cold, etc. a smile is warming and spreads sunshine onto another person. Keep on smiling I encourage you smile to someone else and spread that sunshine. A smile is warming just like the sun shining on us.
