In this time of challenge and adversity, you may be wondering what you can do to make a difference.
I am here to let you know that you can do a very simple thing every day to make the world a better place.
You can smile.
That’s right. Just smile, and do it sincerely.
A lot of people underestimate the effect of a smile. They shouldn’t. After all, most communication is nonverbal. It really is.
A smile doesn’t cost anything. It is free and easy to do. It makes the world a better place.
Think of the last time you saw someone smile. How did it have you feel? I bet you get better and that it had a great positive effect on you.
You can make other people feel better when you smile. You just have to do it every once in a while. You don’t have to say anything at all.
What can a smile do?
- Brighten someone’s day
- Make others feel better
- Help yourself feel good
- Build up happiness
- Make people feel welcome
Make sure you are sincere with your smile. You don’t have to force it if you don’t feel like it.
What if you are not face to face with the person? Well, you can always send an emoji. You could also send a photo of yourself smiling. People enjoy that and I do too.
Take time to smile day. It truly works wonders every time.
