I try to smile as much as I can, they say it prolongs getting wrinkles.
Smiling shows friendliness. It's the first way of signaling that you are easily approachable. A smile says, "Hello! I'm glad to see you." An interesting exercise is to pay attention to service people, like waiters/waitresses, and see how much they smile, and whether or not you think they're doing a good job. The only difference between good service and excellent service is how much the person smiles.
When I have a good day and they are having a bad one. Or when I see something they accidentally did but didn't notice and am in a good mood. If they do something really funny, or someone around them. If they start getting upset that I'm laughing either the smile goes away or I laugh at them even more.
If I don't want to smile or not in the mood, I don't. I'm very blunt and if someone cannot laugh at themself then they cannot enjoy the hard times.
I agree with Kate-Olsen. I usually smile to communicate friendliness and openness to communication. Smiling can also communicate compassion and agreement.
Two main things make me smile at people....my own mood and the facial expressions on the other person.
