“Great big, ear-to-ear, open mouth smiles are responsible for far more sizzling romances, salary increases, life extensions, and calorie burning than your dentists, doctors, and financial planners will ever comprehend.

So what are you waiting for? Smile, laugh, make others laugh, be the funniest person in the room if needed, but as long as you make others and yourself smile, you remain the savior of the evening. People will always remember the people who made them laugh, who helped them feel better in a moment of sadness, a moment of depression or frustration. I know it can be hard to forget your problems all at once, but laughter appease the pain and sorrow. Even when everything around you doesn’t seem to go the way you want, by working on delivering a smile, despite your existing problem, you are tricking your own subconscious mind that all will be alright, which enables you to produce that smile. From this point forward, your new found smile will help you revise the problem and no longer feel as dramatic and complex as it was in the beginning. You will approach it in a different perspective, with a different solution. All your worries will no longer plague your mood and you will feel better, even if the issue isn’t yet fully resolved. Your mind will be presented with multiple effective solution as you address the problem. This is the power of your smile.
I agree it may be hard to smile when everything around you goes sour but will feeling worse help you find a more effective solution to your dilemma? I don’t think so. It is all about perception and the key to solve every problem in your life is to take a step back, analyze the issue, know that you are smarter than the problem itself, that nothing can bother you and that you will respond to problem with a big smile, just to claim that you are in control of your life and nothing can make your feel unhappy. This approach will help you feel better and more apt to solving every issues you will face in your life. Let’s be real here, as every human beings on Earth will be confronted with big problems, but the ones who succeed will face these problems in a calm and collected manner and with a big smile on their face. Why not be a part of that 1% of the population? The choice is yours.
