Smile Factors! :D

1. Over 92% of the American population gains first impressions based on one’s smile cheese

2. Smiling releases endorphins and makes us feel better cheese

3. Even ‘faking’ a smile can lead to feeling happier cheese

4. A newborn shows a preference for a smiling face over a non-smiling face cheese

5. A smiling person is judged to be more pleasant, attractive, sincere, sociable, and competent than a non-smiling person cheese


who have you smiled at lately?????

TheQuietGuy2005 - Yeah, people react in different ways. Probably more relational to their society values that they have been used to while growing up; yet, I smile at so many people... and love to see their smiles and the sparkles in their eyes as if you had just made their day!!!

I love this post!

It seems I smile at everyone and everything these days. It's a great feeling, and hopefully contagious.

I once wrote a piece on the value of smiling in Another Place and you're quite right: forcing yourself to smile releases endorphins and makes you happier (your body releases endorphins as if determined to match your mood to your expression!).

If you walk along the street smiling at strangers - over here anyway - you'll get a lot of people who look at you as if you're insane (but there's nothing new for me in that anyway) but it's made more than worthwhile by the few huge grins you get back.

Who have I smiled at recently?
* The person in the car stopped at the light next to me.
* My daughter when I picked her up from day care today.
* The other mom at the park this afternoon.
* The coworker who told us that she is pregnant with TWINS.
* Many, many more.

I smile at a lot of people. I like being happy, and I like seeing other people being happy.

Lots and LOADS!

The way my dog sits patient on the landing for daddy to quit work and play.
Any time I see the cock quail herding his hens out back.
Hearing that Pink song - "Feel Good Times".
That kid at the drive through who loves his job.
mskitty - whenever she orders a Cosmo and I can watch the tension drain right out of her.
Kids playing on the beach.
Kids playing - anywhere...
A string of blackjacks - especially when I'm betting big!
The Scarlet Harlot.
Seeing Venus next to a full moon.
Anyone who smiles back!

CHEEZE! You smiling

I smiled when I saw my ex-wife and my pets at her home after Hurricane Rita. They still had food and water and was safe. She has not returned home yet because of the damage to the house and there is no power.

Take care.
Keep On Blogging!!!! Have a great day.

five_speed - I do too. It is suprising though how uncomfortable some people can be with people smiling at them... or even just a simple , "Hi!", to them...

I have had people look away immediately at times... and some people growl at me (and I laugh at them).... too much energy wasted by being gruff; much easier spreading some smiles around wherever I may go!!!
