Smile your way to good health :)

‘SMILE’ your way to good health by Ms. Payal Ahuja (Dietician, India)

Are you commonly complaining of
Frequent headaches,
Feeling low and frustrated,
Getting ignored by people around you???


Smiling has great benefits, more than you can imagine. A smile can help you:

Relieve stress, smiling helps your brain to release endorphins (hormones) that act as stress busters.

Control your blood pressure.

Get a NATURAL face lift.

Decrease your chances of developing life threatening disorders like cancer and heart diseases.

Makes you more confident.

Makes you think more positively.

Spread happiness, makes people feel good.

Boosts your immunity, happy people are less likely to suffer from cold.

Makes you more attractive.

A Smile can work as a miracle drug and what’s even better is that it’s absolutely FREE, with NO SIDE EFFECTS.

Life is beautiful, live every day with great smiles.

Spreading the smile :)

Inspired by the SPREAD A SMILE MOVEMENT - Vishal Jodhani (India - now in Belgium) sent me this... I thought I would share it so that you could share your smiles....:)

She smiled at a sorrowful stranger. The smile seemed to make him feel better.
He remembered past kindness of a friend and wrote him a thank-you letter.
The friend was so pleased with the thank-you he left a large tip after lunch.
The waitress suprised by the size of the tip bet the whole thing on a hunch.

The next day she picked up her winnings and gave part to a man on the street.
The man on the street was grateful; for two days he'd had nothing to eat.
After he finished his take out he left for his small dingy room.(he did not know that at that moment he might be facing his doom)
On the way he picked up a little shivering puppy and took him home to get warm.
The puppy was very grateful to be in from the storm.
That night the house caught on fire.
The puppy barked the alarm.
He barked till the whole house was awakened and he saved everybody from harm.
One of the boys he rescued grew up to be president.
All this because of a simple smile that hadn't cost a cent.

Have you ever received a smile from someone and felt happy about it? Have you ever seen someone smile and seeing that, you have smiled? I am sure you have.. and that just made you HAPPY :)

I have always felt Happy about so many things.. I had always experienced the feeling.. When I went about looking on the internet to know what it means.. I found this:
"Happiness is an emotion in which one experiences feelings ranging from contentment and satisfaction to bliss and intense joy. This definition is, however, a synonymous one. A more clarified one is almost impossible to conceive due to the capacity by which a human can allocate the correct words into an appropriate and meritable sentence that would describe happiness"

And I have always been known for smiling.. and I love smiling..and I love making people smile.. So I thought I should know what is a smile when put in words.. I looked online and found this:
"A smile is a facial expression formed by flexing the muscles most notably near both ends of the mouth. The smile can be also around the eyes. It's customarily an expression of pleasure, happiness, or amusement, but can also be an involuntary expression of anxiety, in which case it can be known as a grimace. There is much evidence that smiling is a normal reaction to certain stimuli and occurs regardless of culture. Happiness is most often the cause of a smile."

As the definition suggests Happiness is the reason for people to smile.. I am assuming that people smile when they are happy.. :) So from today I am starting a movement which I would love the whole world to follow.. It is the SPREAD A SMILE MOVEMENT! I am going to smile at anyone whom I find without a smile.. I am sure that atleast 80% of the people I smile at, would smile in return.. Out of these 80%, I am sure atleast 80% would smile genuinely and would feel Happy about 'something'.. It does'nt matter what this 'something' will be.. It would just mean that there is a reason to smile and a reason to be happy in life.. Now out of these 80% people who smiled genuinely would knowingly or unknowingly bring a smile on someone's face somewhere in the world..

Too much of information...?? Lets make it simple..
I smile at anyone whom I see without a smile.. :)
For eg. I smile at 100 people. Out of these 80 would smile back.
Out of these 80, atleast 64 would smile genuinely and would somehow bring a smile on someones face.

What is happening at the end of this? There are 2 ways of looking at this...

1. The whole world would seem MAD by smiling throughout at anyone....
2. The whole world seems to be HAPPY place to live...

I choose to believe in the 2nd point of view.. and even if 80% people read this and believe this, there is some change for the good happening in this world... :)

I dont know how many people are going to read this.. I dont know how many people who read this will follow it or feel its too crappy and cheesy and 'Bull shit'.. but whatever they would feel, I am sure it would bring a smile on their face.. :)

And I truly truly believe that A SMILE IS CURVE THAT SETS THINGS STRAIGHT! So why not smile..

So I start right away.. :) I am smiling..and making people smile.. Are you???

SMILE! - Now showing on a FACE near you...:)
