Who else loves smiles as much as I do?
When I see someone with a great smile, I can’t help but smile back at them (this can sometimes get a little awkward when I don’t realise I’m doing it, and I find myself staring at a stranger with an inane smile on my face!)
This video by Ron Gutman explains my odd little habit, as he describes smiles as “evolutionarily contagious”, I really like that! Gutman then goes on to describe the various and innumerable benefits of smiling, ending with this quote which I simply adore:
“So whenever you want to look great and competent, reduce your stress or improve your marriage, or feel as if you just had a whole stack of high-quality chocolate without incurring the caloric cost, or as if you found 25 grand in the pocket of an old jacket you hadn’t worn for ages, or whenever you want to tap into a superpower that will help you and everyone around you live a longer, happier and healthier life, smile!“- Ron Gutman
