Top 10 Reasons To Smile
Dancing In The Rain At Christmas
What to do when you have planned a day out shopping and it rains all day long. Nothing left to do but have a dance in the rain! (see photos of me dancing in the rain below lol.)
At winter you only have the fun you decide to make for yourself your loved ones and friends. So acting in a silly way is one of my favorite things to do. I am a very outgoing person and I don’t care what people think when I act in a silly way or a little crazy.
Having that attitude is one of my strong qualities. It makes you feel more carefree. We humans have enough worries in life and stranger’s opinions shouldn’t be one of them.
I have not always felt this way. When I was younger I was often disappointed and sad when I heard people talk behind my back or create vicious rumors about me. Today I can honestly say, I really don’t care.
I almost see it as a positive thing. The more people talk about you – be it good or bad – the more success you have and that can cause jealousy among some people.
Life is short so what I want you to do is SMILE as much as you can.
1. Smiling Makes Us attractive
We are drawn to people who smile. There is an attraction factor. We want to know a smiling person and figure out why they are so happy.
2. Smiling Changes Our Mood
Next time you are feeling down, try putting on a smile. There’s a good chance your mood will change for the better. Smiling can trick the body into helping you change your mood.
3. Smiling is contagious
When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you.
4. Smiling Relieves Stress
Stress can really show up in our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, won down, and overwhelmed. When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile. The stress should be reduced and you’ll be better able to take action.
5. Smiling Boosts Your Immune System
Smiling helps the immune system to work better. When you smile, immune function improves possibly because you are more relaxed. Prevent the flu and colds by smiling.
6. Smiling Lowers Your Blood Pressure
When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. Give it a try if you have a blood pressure monitor at home. Sit a few minutes, take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. Do you notice a difference?
7. Smiling Releases Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and Serotonin
Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Just like when you Work out at the gym. Together these three makes us feel good. Smiling is a natural drug.
8. Smiling Lifts the Face and Makes You Look Younger
The muscles we use to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger. Don’t go for a face lift before you have tried the smile lift. Just try smiling your way through the day – you’ll look younger and feel better.
9. Smiling Makes You Seem Successful
Smiling people appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and more likely to be approached. Put on a smile at meetings and appointments and people will react to you differently.
10. Smiling Helps You Stay Positive
Try this test: Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. It’s hard. When we smile our body is sending the rest of us a message that ‘’Life is Good!!’’ Stay away from depression, stress and worry by smiling.
Show me those big smiles right now and keep them all winter.
I am smiling rigt now, because without my readers this blog would not be possible.
