The Energizing Benefits of Smiles!

According to The British Dental Health Foundation "a smile gives the same level of stimulation as eating 2,000 chocolate bars!" And, according to psychologist Dr. David Lewis "Seeing a smile creates what is termed as a 'halo' effect, helping us to remember other happy events more vividly, feel more optimistic, more positive and more motivated."

Want to feel better? Smile more ...

Don't believe me? Prove it to yourself. Make a point of smiling at everyone you see today. And, put a smile on your face when you talk to people you can't see. (You can tell, even over the phone, if someone is smiling or not - can't you?!)

So - give this a try - then post me a comment in the morning ...

:) :) :) Viveca
