Smiling Is Contagious - Infect Others

A Smile Makes Everyone Happy

Do you believe that smiling increases happiness both in yourself and those around you?

When someone you don't know smiles at you, and you smile back... you feel good! Most often you would wonder why you "smiled back".... the pleasant gesture that you received has improved your mood and lifted your spirits. Finding it easy and comfortable giving back the gesture is the magic that has left you with a thought of how cheerful you can be when you smile.

The overall effect tells you that you're feeling happy on the inside. It's simple and, in most cases, totally spontaneous that can brighten up everyone's mood. Smiling can even affect the way one person is received by another over the phone. That's how magical a smile can make you attractive that many would wish you're always around.

It's very well said that when someone smiles at you - whether you know the person or not - that YOU ALWAYS will give a great smile back. You can't help it - and that makes you a healthy infection.

The Pleasantly Contagious Smile

A smiling person brings joy and enthusiasm to others.

Imagine yourself in a room full of smiling people and you will find yourself smiling... Grinning is contagious. When you smile, it causes others to smile too. There seems like a power that when you see others grinning it creates you want to smile as well.

Smiling Makes You More Attractive

When you smile, it lights up your face and it makes you look STUNNING!

Even if you don't talk, your little smiles mean a positive communication. It is the essence of something beautiful within you. It is an expression of how you appreciate those around you. The most beautiful smile is one that comes out naturally. The normal feeling of cheerfulness that radiates from within you makes you look graceful and more attractive both inside and out.

People who naturally wear a good smile also feel good about themselves boosting up positive energy which in turn promotes self-confidence. There actually is no reason for you to hide those smiles. Give them away, find it easy to smile and be attractive as you can be.

Smile doesn't need rules and practice. So long as you do it, then there's the smile. Just think calm, now smile. Do it as wide enough so your side teeth will show. Don't worry, you always look good when you smile.

I agree with you one hundred percent!

Great hub. And I always pass on a smile. On some days, during my lunch break, I walk around town to see how many strangers I can get to smile back at me. Typically, about 99% of the people will return a smile. It's awesome!

Hi floating mind. Wow. You're not just contagious in a smile but fast! Thanks for the awesome thought. Many times I smile at people who ignore my smiles, but it doesn't stop me there. I'd still love to be contagious. I'm with you a 100%. Thank you.

Hi Peggy -- Thank you. You too made me smile big knowing how my smiley hub has become healthily contagious. Yes, one of the greatest things to start and end a day, is a smile. Cheers to you!

Hello healthylife2 -- So true. I just wonder why many people refuses to give away what's supposed to be, like you said, free. Perhaps we only need to start and be contagious:=)... Thank you for reading and commenting. Best wishes!

There is nothing more awesome then seeing the genuine smile on a baby's face. Whenever I see my baby smile it reminds me of the importance of just letting go and allowing ourselves to feel true inner happiness. That smile on a baby's face is just that - true happiness. Great Hub.

That is so wonderful of you Darrin. There truly is nothing than a pure smile. The baby is my niece and capturing that smile is like a single click that's worth a thousand smiles. When a baby smiles, it's enough to erase a day's stress, it's enough to pacify an angry heart, and its more than enough to comfort a worrying mind. GOD is so wonderful!

My best wishes for you and your baby. His/her smile and your love is among the powers of happiness. Thank you for sharing that to us here, you're a wonderful Dad. All my best and best of all.:=) -Tonette

You are a sunshine to others, rls, and even if some don't smile back at you the feeling that you made them feel appreciated is enough to let them know smiling is healthy and beautiful. Anytime I'm sure you'll see some of them start to give back smiles. Thanks for the smiles, sending them back a basketful! Hugs...:=)Tonette
