Here Are the 25 Ways To Make People Smile Instantly

Updated on May 15, 2009

Smiling is a great way to build a connection among people. It's like a bridge between two hearts. Smiling also the simplest, easiest, and cheapest way of improving our looks and even moods. The fact is it takes only 17 muscles to smile, but you need about 43 to frown so why we have to waste our energy frowning when we could just smiling. When you smile, your brain releases endorphines that make you feel happy and better. I found that women smile a lot more than men and more easier to greet another person than men. OK, now here are the 25 ways to make people smile and maybe there are more ways but I just found around 25.

1. Greet your neighbor today and make eye contact.
2. Send some flower to your partner or spouse at work.
3. Give your partner a surprise call at work just to say Hi..
4. Compliment your co worker's appearance today
5. Send a surprise and unusual gift to your parents like cakes, flower, books, or chocolate.
6. Donate something to charity like your money, your books etc
7. Hold the door for someone who is walking behind you.
8. Send a card to your friend or family member letting them know what a good friend and family they are.
9. Call your granny for no reason.
10. Tell your kids that you love them.
11. Take a friend out for lunch.
12. Share your funny stories with friends.

13. Give your partner or spouse a hug for no reason.
14. Send funny picture to your friend's e mail.
15. Leave a joke on on your friend's answering machine.
16. Share your umbrella on rainy day.
17. Arrange an indoor picnic for your children on a rainy day.
18. Bake some cookies and share them with friends.
19. Ask your friend if they need something while you're out of town.
20. Tell your partner or your spouse that you love him/her.
21  Tell your kids that you really proud of them.
22. Cook something special for your family.
23  Tell someone that you thought about them the other day.
24. Ask your child to share some candies to their friends.
25. Just give a smile to a stranger in the road say Good Morning, or Hi.

So, do you want to put a smile on someone's face today ? You may try those steps above. It won't cost you a dime and be carefull smile could be very contagious :)

      Bite_me, Justacomment, mella, and panda, I appreciate all your comments, but do me a favor please, I can no longer approve a kind of discussion whether there is God or not, it will lead to a never ending exhausted discussion.

      So, for them who believe in God, I appreciate it

      For them who don't believe in God, I also appreciate it, it's a choice.

      Thank you

      I have also been reading this, and I think it's great that you are all voicing your opinions and explaining what you believe- I don't see anything wrong with that at all. I actually appreciate hearing from both sides :) However, I don't believe that the turm, "see you in hell" is an opinion. Maybe I'm wrong, but it sounds like a (slightly) bitter thing to say to someone... wouldn't you agree?

      Neither Justacomment or febriedethan said anything that put down the idea that there is no God. I'll even quote febriedethan on this one- she said, "I honor your opinion about it" as Bite_Me was explaining how he/she felt about faith and religion... I was slightly disappointed to read comments refering to how "stupid" her faith is... I'm not trying to sound ignorant or anything but can't everyone just agree to disagree, and RESPECT people for what they believe? Again (in case you didn't catch it the first time) I am NOT trying to sound ignorant, I'm simply voicing my opinion, just as everyone else has... Have a wonderful day, whether you be Christian, Atheist, Buddhist, or whatever else you might be..! =)

      I have been watching the argument for a while now. I didnt want to say anything but since Justacomment did..

      I agree with Bite_Me_I_Will_Bite_You_Back, religion is the cause of all evil. I am sure he/she is not bitter, they are simply voicing their opinions, just as you are voicing yours. I think the way Justacomment described God, made God and him sound like perverts. You may think that your theory of God is correct, maybe Bite_Me_I_Will_Bite_You_Back has a theory. Have you ever thought to ask him/her that? No you are too wrapped up in your own ridiculous ideas that you dont think about other people. God can wait for me and Bite_Me_I_Will_Bite_You_Back to love him, but i think he will be waiting a hell of a long time. I dont believe we have made any choices, because if we did that would be saying that religion was an actual plausable theory, which it is not.

      Have a wonderful day, be sure to fill your heads with stupidity about religion.

      Dear Bite_Me_I_Will_Bite_You_Back

      How sad. You come across so bitter!

      I actually feel sorrow when reading your thoughts.

      Secular Humanism is what most would define as your "faith". It is your "religion". You do sound very religious.

      God loves you and He loves all his creation.

      God loved you so much that He sent his only son to die in your place so that you can have life- Forever. If you choose to- but it is your choice- your free will. God will never force you to love Him- that wouldn’t be worth much if He forced us to love him would it?

      You can also choose to ignore or deny God- It's your choice- your free will, but you have to make a choice. God gives us a choice to make and everyone must come to their own decision. There are only two choices though. The first is to accept His great love. The second is to deny Him and his great love. The results of this all important choice has eternal consequences- so be SURE!! Be sure you make the right choice for yourself.

      It sounds like you have made your choice. Fortunately you can change your mind- that is how loving and forgiving, and longsuffering God is. He is full of patience, kindness and love- He still loves you, even if you don't “choose” to believe Him or love Him back. He still waits for you. He is not willing that any single person who lives or has ever lived will make the wrong choice and spend eternity away from Him. He wants you with Him, always! But it’s YOUR choice- He gives you your own choice.

      One thing that struck me as odd and that I hadn't heard before was when you said "Your spirit goes back into the earth, it feeds other animals”. Our souls are spirit- like God is spirit- a spirit cannot feed the earth because spirits are not earthly, they are from above. Our bodies will certainly go back to the ground from where they originally came from, but not our spirits.

      I hope that you will think more on the fact that God does love you, more than friends and family or anything or anyone else can, in fact, God is your biggest Fan!!. There is an empty space in your precious heart that only He himself can fill. He made that place inside of you so that He can fill it with Himself. The earth is a magnificent beautiful creation but nothing earthly will fill the longing of your soul.

      I hope you have a really good day ?

      Chance is not a thing that can be given! I dont believe you have yet commented on the majority of my last comment. Let me answer your questions. I dont blame "God" for the things that people do, I blame the idea of God and religion, the idea that doing these things people can get into heaven. I thought Christians believed in forgiving, if that was true then there would be no hell, only heaven. How come you preach about how you should treat others, then comments about how people are not worthy of the basic rights?

      Im not sure everyone has free will.

      So God is waiting for me? Is he also waiting for every other person who believes that the idea of him is a pile of crap?

      I am glad i have met you, not because you can "introduce" me to God, but because you have taught me that some people cant be saved from their own overactive imagination.

      I hope your precious God comes soon, not just for your sake, but for the sake of those who suffer at the hands of maniacs, who believe that raping and torturing a child is a good thing to do.

      My name? Why? Are you and your friends going to find me and convert me?

      See you in hell... thanks for sharing!

      Bite_Me_I_Will_Bite_You_Back, hi! what is your name actually ? I love calling people by their name. No, I didn't say that, I said I believe in Jesus, it's faith and not religion, and if you have faith in your friends, family, or science that's fine. I hope those will always help u, be happy with your faith.

      I think chance is also something absurd, and who give u that chance? About people who kill in the name of God, it's not God's fault, you can not blame God of what people did, it's so naive. Those people are controlled by their own hatred and can not accept other believe, race, or culture.

      If I die I know my spirit and soul will come back to my Creator, Jesus. Yes, that's simple and convenient. God created human to be His friend and co worker, so that He can share everything with us. But we still have our free will.

      Where is God now? I believe He's watching u and wait for u :) He loves u so much that send u to me :) so that I can share and introduce u to Him. At least, u have heard about it. I'm not following a lost cause, I'm following a living God and He will come soon for the second time, I'm guilty if I don't tell u that, thank you for sharing!

      so you are saying that because i dont believe in God or jesus that i have no faith? i have faith in my friends and my family that they will always do the right thing. faith doesnt just mean that you believe in a ridiculous theory. To be honest i believe in Science not God. Science has told everyone how the earth was made and it all happened by accident, this whole world, this whole universe was a complete accident! First after the big bang the earth was filled with volcanoes that released carbon dioxide, water vapour and nitrogen. As the earth cooled, most of the water vapour condensed to form the oceans. So the atmosphere was mostly carbon dioxide with some nitrogen and water, there may have been small amounts of water and ammonia as well. In the next two billion years, algae and plants EVOLVED. they used carbon dioxide for photosynthesis to produce food and this released oxygen. As the number of plants increased, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere decreased and the amount of oxygen increased. As i have just proved to you, you can grow something from rock if you have a little help from some gases.

      I come from a beautiful accident that created everything we know and love, including your precious religion. Chance is what created everything. Religion is just a way of keeping people in order, if you are naughty and do not OBEY the authority you will go to HELL, but if you are good, "God" with throw you a bone and you will go to a wonderful place called heaven! how convenient that no one knows what happens after you die! Your spirit goes back into the earth, it feeds other animals, we are insignificant compared to the massive circle of life.

      Let me finish with a question, how many horrific crimes have been committed in the name of God?

      As you have already said, you cannot force me to believe in something that has been disproved many times over. I am very, very sorry that you and another sheep are still following a lost cause. I hope you and the rest of your flock, are enjoying your ignorance. Where is God now?

      Bite_Me_I_Will_Bite_You_Back, hi good to see u again:) Well what can I say? I honor your opinion about it, but if there is no God, so where are u come from ? And if today is a gift from the earth, where is the earth come from? How u explain, you may grow something in the soil, but you won't grow anything from the rock, and both are in the earth. And if u die, where will your soul and spirit go? who give a fetus life that he/she may grow inside a woman's womb? where are all the energy belong? If there is no an Ultimate Power to give the energy.

      And I'm not talking about religion here, it's just about faith. Religion will not bring you hope or life but faith does. Well, obviously there is a big differences between us, I believe in God, more precise is I believe in Jesus and it's not religion, it's faith.

      I can not force u or persuade u to believe in God, it's your free opinion and I think u should make a hub about it and let's see what is your reasons :)

      Well i dont believe in God so i feel that today is a gift from earth, there was no need to bring religion into the mix. I was simply commenting on the fact that there is no God, so how could we get a gift from him?

      Bite_Me_I_Will_Bite_You_Back, wow..I won't bite u though :) Thank you for commenting and I think Pastor just try to tell that today is a gift from God so we may be happy about it no matter what will happen today, not about we happy because God gives gifts to us, that's what I think.

      Great to see u and have a good time!
