Ear to Ear

Ever notice how you feel after someone sends a smile your way? It could be a stranger simply smiling as they pass or a friend greeting you with a big grin, but the feeling it creates is usually the same – you smile right back!

Its true, smiling is contagious and can cause feelings of wide-spread joy and happiness! Believe it or not, there is scientific research to support the theory that smiling helps improve your mood, lower stress and promotes positive well-being.

Ever hear that old expression “grin and bear it?!?!” Well, it seems its not too far off. When you’re stressed or feeling frustrated, try to take a deep breath and wear a smile. Not only is smiling an expression of our happiness or pleasure but it can also help evoke those feelings.

Whether smiling to improve your own mood, or that of those around you, smile from ear to ear!

  1. I always try to smile when answering the phone especially at work or in personal life; it’s proven almost impossible to not sound positive and friendly. It starts every conversation on a good note.
