Smile: Feel The Power!
Celebrate Smile Power Day
I'm sure you've heard people say "Smile and the world will smile with you..."
June 15th is Smile Power Day, the day to give your friends, neighbors and relations a share of your smile. It might be a crazy June holiday, but this one is powerfully good for us. Smiles have health benefits. Family smiles allow us to feel loved and appreciated. The power of a smile may even give us wealth benefits. But, hey, why restrict it to people you know? Share your smile more widely - it might brighten everyone's day!
I hope you can find some encouragement and inspiration in this lens!

Smile, Be Happy!
Smile power can help others feel happier, but just as important, it can improve your mood too. Smiles can improve personal relationships and business relationships, but your smile should be sincere if you want it to be effective. Most of us can detect phoney smiles - real smilers have a glint in their eyes and little micro-expressions that show us the truth.

Smile, Save Energy!
Some people say that it's easier to smile than to frown, and even that smiling uses less muscles than frowning. So, if that's true, smiling saves energy! Maybe that's why some people think that smiling can add years to your life.
Mark Twain said : "Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been." I think he made a good point!

Smiles are contagious!
Some people say that love makes the world go round, but unrequited love can make you feel that the world has stopped spinning... you can feel like you're falling off... Smiling, on the other hand, is contagious. A genuine smile can make us feel like smiling too. Before you know, your bright smile could start an epidemic!
"If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning 'Good morning' at total strangers." -— Maya Angelou
