Power Smile Day ... Your Day to Shine

Updated on September 15, 2014

SMILE... Pass it on

Did you know that June 15th is Power Smile Day?

You may be asking yourself, "Just exactly what is Power Smile Day?"

Power Smile Day is the day to get out there and smile. You may be wading in a sea of straight faces but your goal today is to turn those frowns all around you into smiling faces. Are you up for the challenge?

So where ever you are today, look at a stranger or a friend and flash them those pearly whites and guess what... they will most likely smile back. Smiles are actually quite contagious which is a good thing since they make us all feel so good from our heads all the way down to our toes.

Smiles are an all natural medicine with the ability to heal and mend our broken hearts and sometimes our unhealthy bodies. A simple gesture with such great power. :)

Hopefully this will get you in the mood to get out there SMILING. Happy Power Smile Day!

If you see a friend without a smile; give him one of yours. Proverb

What a Smile Says about a Person

If eyes are the windows of the soul, then your smile would be it's reflection.

You can tell a lot about a person by the smile or lack of smile on their face.

A person with a smile on their face shows the world they are a confident and happy individual. They feel good about themselves and want to share it with the world. They usually have many friends because people naturally are drawn to those who are happy and positive.

So remember to chin up and let your smile shine and don't be surprised if the world shines with you.

How to Execute the Perfect Smile

Smiling really is not very hard at all. Everyone can do it. Babies smile at only a few months old, so really how hard can this be.

Let me let you in on a little secret. It's all in the eyes. A smile comes from deep down inside and our eyes really tell alot. They are the windows to our soul. So a heartfelt smile with be reflected in ones eyes. So the bottomline is don't hold back just let it go.

Practice really does make perfect. Yes, I know this may sound cliche, but practicing is important to perfect the best looking smiling. Stand in front of your mirror and try a few on for size. The most important fact to remember is to make it natural. Never force a smile. The point of this exercise is to find the one which looks best on you.

Toothy Grins or non-toothy grins, that is the question. Sure you can show your teeth if you want. How about a smirky smile? They are definitely pretty adorable on the right person. The key here is to find what works for you. Teeth or no teeth it really does not matter.

The bottom line is there is no wrong smile they are all simply wonderful. It is the one you feel most comfortable with and the one which just naturally emerges on your face when you are happy. It is all natural and quite beautiful.

      Smiling always makes me feel better - even when I'm miserable. Given, it doesn't always fix things, but it certainly can help alleviate the pressure, and when I'm in a good mood, well, then I just can't stop. :) Love this lens - blessed by a SquidAngel!
