I like to smile. It gives my face something to do besides just sit there. A face that isn’t exercised gets bored. It might frown. That’s bad, it makes people think something is wrong. There are things that are going wrong in the world; and frowning won’t make them better. I have noticed, however, that a smile is something good. Did you know that if you smile, you use less of the muscles in your face than if you frown? I know exercise is good and all that but which would you rather show to the people around you?
A frown on your face will create a space around you that people give those who look angry. I guess the people don’t want the anger to rub off on them. Well, I don’t blame them. Too many people are angry these days.
At the same time, try walking in a crowd and smile! Sometimes people will smile back. I have seen times where a tired, sad looking person will see a smile and smile back. They will lift up their head and straighten their shoulders and it seems to help. Smiles usually don’t hurt you or others. It’s even an easy exercise. Remember a smile is easy on the face–less wrinkles. People don’t seem to be wary of smilers, just the frowners. So exercise your face a little–SMILE.
