There’s so much to know about smiles.
A study by a French neurologist concluded
that there are two kinds of smiles,
smiling with the mouth
and smiling with the eyes.
Some people can do both, some can’t.
I wonder which I do.
A famous study of yearbooks
discovered that women who had the biggest smiles
went on to lead happier lives.
Hurry and go look at your old yearbook photo.
And what about the guys?
Well….a famous study of baseball cards
found a connection between
how big a player’s smile was
to how long he would eventually live.
The players who smiled the biggest
lived seven years longer
than those who didn’t smile at all.
So, guys, that’s worth a big smile for sure.
A comprehensive study of why people smile
found that 80-90% of all smiles
are not in response to jokes
or something humorous,
rather they are most often in response
to simple things like,
”It was nice meeting you,”
or “How are you doing?”
or “Have a nice day.”
So….your little comments CAN make a difference.
And YOUR SMILE can DEFINITELY make a difference.
Here are some points to ponder.
