Smile… it’s good for you

Most people smile much less often than they think they do.

How do you feel when you smile?
Pretty good! Smiling releases lots of feel-good neurochemicals into your body.

How do you react to others who smile?
They are easy to like!
Smiling makes people attractive, and it’s contagious.

So, notice how often you smile. Keep a mental smile log 🙂

And notice how others react when you smile, and how their response affects you.

People are different, so what would YOU need to do so that you genuinely smiled more often?

My best wishes, Paul

Paul Matthews
