Smile, it helps!

“A smile is laughter’s whisper & has its roots in your spirit” said Fulton Sheen. He also went on to say cheerfulness in the face of adversity can be a great show of character. And that a long face will not increase your mood or longevity! 

It’s also true that a spontaneous and genuine communication comes through the eyes. So when you allow your spirit to shine through your eyes, your presence radiates entirely through to another person. 

At times when you’re preoccupied (like right now), your smile may not be visceral, and then it is only the movement of facial muscles.

Remember the Buddhist mantra “Smile, breath and go slow.”

A smile is the most frequent and effortless facial expression we can share and it can last a split second or a lifetime. Yet it will never be lost! And, because there is distinct energy that comes from you with each smile. Your smile creates genuine connection with another person. In the authors opinion your smile creates the spontaneous love we all have each other; no matter the circumstances we can make a difference for each other. 

“Smile and the world smiles with you.” Stanley Gordon West

The few studies that have investigated these nonverbal communications show that people who receive smiles showed a lower stress response with their bodies (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal or HPA axis).

Social health is dependent upon each person’s health; as you will have seen in abundance recently, people are caring for one another in profound ways that are very uplifting. We are now more connected to each other than ever. Lets keep this compassion and humility going for all to feel. Let’s keep this spirit alive.
