Every morning, the newspapers bombard us with stories of death, destruction, and agitation. On a rare occasion, we read news that brings optimism and hope. Why should we begin our day reading morose news that builds on our frustrations? Let's begin our day with a smile.

Smile. It is a simple act, but sometimes takes a lot of effort. Why don't we smile more often? Is it too tough to smile? The answer lies in our attitude towards life. If we are more accepting of situations, we will be able to smile more easily.

A smile can do wonders. Start your day smiling and see how the magic begins to work. People smile back at you; you feel happier, and you also make others happier. Sounds simple, right? Yet, we forget to smile. If you want a smile on your face, read these fun quotes. It’s the best way to bring some fun into your life and start smiling.

A smile can improve your looks and makes others find you pleasant, but apart from these obvious benefits, smiling has many more advantages:

A Smile Makes You Look and Feel Younger

A smile is an outward expression of a happy person. A positive attitude releases the right neurotransmitters and makes you feel and look young. It is a well known fact that happy hormones retard the aging process.

Smiles Can Patch up Problems and Make Them Go Away

Of course, the smile has to be a genuine one, not a wicked, sly grin. If you want to say sorry, sometimes an apologetic smile can suffice. Want to break ice in a new group? Smile! You will usually find others responding with a smile. Have you fought with your girlfriend, but don't want to stay mad? Smile and let go of your pent up anger.

Smiles Bring in Business

All sales people are taught to smile and befriend their customers. A smiling salesperson opens more doors to business than an unsmiling one. Likewise, if you are presenting to a delegate of buyers or dealers, a smile will improve your presentation manifold. Use your smile as an ultimate business tool to generate revenue.

Pets Will Love You More If You Smile

New research has shown that dogs are able to understand human smiles as a positive. They can look into a human face and decipher whether the face is smiling or frowning and what that means. Pets connect with humans on an emotional level. So the more you smile, the more your dog will love you.

A Smile Can Spell the Beginning of a Great Relationship

Like that girl in the neighborhood? Why don't you begin your friendship with a smile? Work on your facial curves and win her heart with your handsome smiles. Be generous when it comes to smiling. A smile is all it takes for love to blossom. Don't look for the best pickup lines, or a perfect way to say, "I love you." A smile can say it all.
