“SOMETIMES YOUR JOY IS THE SOURCE OF YOUR SMILE, BUT SOMETIMES YOUR SMILE CAN BE THE SOURCE OF OTHERS JOY”
Smile!You smile and you see everyone around you smile with you.This is the power of this facial expression that it can fill the room with people smiling all around because of you.A smile can transform you and the world around you.It can lift everyone’s mood indirectly making us appear attractive and charming.So before reading ahead, slap your face with a genuine smile.
A recent study has concluded that when we smile, it can trigger another person to smile as well.Not only our smile or grin, all our facial expressions whatever they be are contagious. Whenever we look at someone, lot of interactions take place without our knowledge.We respond according to other’s frown or smile in an appropriate way. The major cause found behind this mimicry is “sensory motor simulation” in our brains.Smiling activates neural messaging which could improve our health and lead to happiness..The release of neuropeptides help to fight against stress.When you smile, neurotransmitters dopamine, endorphins and serotonin are released which not only relaxes our body but reduces our heart beat and blood pressure too.
“LIFE IS TOO SHORT.SMILE TILL YOU HAVE TEETH”
It can be best understand with eye contact. One of the researcher Wood said ”It probably sounds obvious ,but if you want someone to really understand how you feel ,or you want to understand how someone else feels, look them in the eyes”.While responding back to someone’s facial expression,we reflect on our emotional feelings, and then make some recognition judgement and take appropriate action which can be favourable or unfavourable.
It is not only about smile like if you are with a friend and he looks sad,you may try to make that sad face forcefully unknowingly.You try to associate with other person’s feelings and emotions unintentionally .People who are not able to connect or share other’s feelings or emotions face one or the other problem or disease like facial paralysis,neuron disorder or autism.
Finally, if we look at a much bigger picture,your smile coaxes others brain to return the favour.It helps in creating a healthy relationship which increases the chances of both the smiling people to live longer and healthier lives.So always meet people with a big smile and then see the environment around you,you will feel rewarded.
