In a world where too many people seem to be focused on finding things to be upset about, it can sometimes be hard to keep your ‘feel good’ working all day. So here’s a suggestion to help you through your day: Do a good deed and smile.
Smiles really are contagious. You’ve probably heard the saying, “Be kind to people. You never know what they are going through.” It’s true, so do one little thing to let them know you care. Smile. A smile is a simple act that can have a significant impact. No, it won’t change the circumstances of a person’s life, but a smile CAN change the emotions they are dealing with, which can then help change their perspective.
Sharing a smile doesn’t just make the recipient feel better; it makes the giver feel better too. Besides these mental and emotional perks, research shows that smiling is good for your health. One of the main benefits? A smile reduces stress. And who can’t use a little stress relief?!
Yes, there are many issues that deserve attention and even concern. But can’t we be involved with those causes and smile at the same time? It could make such a difference. So do a good deed today. Share a smile!
