“Smile and the world smiles with you.” Stanley Gordon West
“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 smile comes through the eyes, and that when you allow your spirit to shine through you, your smile will radiate 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. SO, remember the Buddhist mantra “Smile, breath and go slow.”
A smile is the most frequent and effortless facial expression we can share. Your smile can last a split second or a lifetime, it will never be lost! There is distinct energy that comes from you that is born from the moment of a genuine connection with another person and this spontaneous love we have for each other, no matter the circumstances we can make a difference for each other.
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 dependant 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.
