With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts

Eleanor Roosevelt

It is all in the smile...


Humor is contagious. Laughter is infectious. Both are good for your health. 

 William Fry

There is nothing like a SMILE.  I write about smiling and laughter often because I know the positive benefits they can bring to your life.  Having a good sense of humor doesn’t simply make you a more pleasant person to socialize with; it can help you get more done and even save your sanity.  


So go ahead: Smile.

Having a good sense of humor can make you more resilient.  It has been scientifically proven that laughter causes positive reactions in the human body; it relieves stress and muscle tension, increases the release of endorphins and dopamine which are chemicals that make you feel good and promote general feelings of well being.


Smile a while and give your face a rest…

When it comes to finding constructive ways of dealing with fear, there is hardly anything more effective than having a good old laugh. This is because it is impossible to laugh at something and be afraid of it at the same time. 


A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.

Denis Waitley

There is nothing like a genuine smile, a caring smile from a friend when you have the world on your shoulders (so to speak).

Today's graphics are especially great!

"It's impossible to laugh and something and be afraid of it at the same time." I'd not thought of that before; another Patch Adams parable, for sure!

Like all the smiling faces in your post today. And this quote in particular. "It has been scientifically proven that laughter causes positive reactions in the human body; it relieves stress and muscle tension, increases the release of endorphins and dopamine which are chemicals that make you feel good and promote general feelings of well being."
