Babies smile a lot.
Beauty queens smile on cue.
Winners smile – well most of the time - in between all that jumping and high-fiving.
Smiles are our way of expressing our happiness, our joy and our gratitude.
Smiles are generally a way of connecting and saying (without words) - I'm with you on this, I acknowledge you as a fellow human, a wonderful animal or a gorgeous flower, someone/something I'm in sync with.
You probably already knew all of this, but did you know that smiles are actually really good for your health and well-being?
I just recorded an episode for my podcast Talk Motivation about the power of smiling, including the 10 superpowers of smiling and a description of a conscious act of exploring the many opportunities we have daily to smile, but we let go unnoticed, which I like to refer to as "Smiling-Mindfulness"
