The power of a smile
A smile is a simple thing, but it is also a very powerful thing.
It has the ability to make us feel cared for, loved, uplifted and happy.
Smiling is also infectious. Who can not smile back when a baby smiles at us.
Smiling makes us feel good. It releases happy hormones in our body.
When we smile at others, it makes them feel that we care about them and about what they do.
When somebody is ill or afraid, a smile can make all of the difference. Both reassuring them and making them feel happier in themselves.
So don't be afraid to use this most powerful of tools.
Smile at the world, and the world will smile right back at you.
