Smiling Is Contagious - Infect Others

Updated on November 4, 2016

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! The pleasant disposition you received improved your mood. Finding it easy and comfortable giving back the gesture (whether you know the person or not) makes you a healthy infection.

The overall effect tells you that you're feeling happy on the inside. It's simple and, in most cases, totally spontaneous enough to 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.

The Pleasantly Contagious Smile

A smiling person is a joy 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 radiating from within makes you look gracefully attractive 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. So give them away.

How to Make That Perfect Smile

Smile doesn't need rules and practice. So long as you do it, then there's the smile. Start by thinking beautiful... now smile.

Do it as wide enough so your side teeth will show. Don't worry, you always look good when you smile.

      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

      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

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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!
