Hey reader, SMILE!!!
I bet that felt good… smiling always feels good.
‘The value of smiling at Christmas’ was written by a department store in New York City, in recognition of the pressure its sales clerks were under during the Christmas rush, they came up with an advertisement philosophy that hits hard and will always put a smile on your face when you read. Follow the philosophy below;
It cost nothing but creates much.
It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give. Smiles happen in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None are so rich they can along without it, and none so poor but are richer for its benefits.
It creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in a business, and is the countersign of friends. It is the rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and Nature’s best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that no earthly good anybody till it is given away. And if in the last-minute rush of Christmas buying some of our salespeople should be too tired to give you a smiling face, may we ask you to leave one of yours? For nobody needs smiles so much as those who have none left to give.
“Your smiles will give you a positive countenance that will make people feel comfortable around you”.
Smile now! Never mind how hard life has been, if you will remember all the time to smile now you will always be smiling. Your smiles should be a reflection of your inner soul’s state of ever-new joy. When we smile, we flex certain muscles in our faces. This movement tells the brain that we’re smiling which in turn initiates the release of ENDORPHINS.
What are Endorphins?
Endorphins are happy hormones, they can make us feel joyful and warm inside.
You should smile genuinely this helps to lighten your mood, some people smile most of the time but beneath that smiling is a face filled with sorrow, smiles are just a mask used to cover their real feelings.
‘Life is like a mirror, smile at it and it smiles back at you.
Smiling is not always the easiest thing to do, especially after you’ve been stressed. But if you could smile no matter what the situation you’ll feel better. It might be worth your while to fake a smile and see where it gets you.
Be sincere with your smile, start first thing in the morning as you greet yourself in the mirror smiling. As you go out today try smiling at a stranger, you will be surprised how hard it is for them to not smile back.
