“You haven’t lost your smile, its right there under your nose. You just forgot” Unknown
Smiling is a very impressive function of the human body, that, when used often, can trigger a huge range of well-being benefits for your body, mind and soul. The best part is its absolutely contagious. Simply take a look at the photo below, and if that doesn’t bring a smile to your face nothing will.
It’s very hard to feel stressed, angry or worried when you are smiling - even if you are faking it. Research shows that a smile can change your mood, release tension (particularly in your jaw and neck), help you stay positive, boost your immune system, comfort another person, help you relax and even make you look younger.
I’m super keen to enroll in an upcoming Laughter Yoga workshop, which is what inspired me in the first place to go off and research the benefits of smiling and laughter.

So, to inspire you to smile more often, whilst keeping it simple, here’s some fabulous quotes on smiling that I’m trusting will encourage you to increase your daily quota of smiles.
