Day 3: Give the Gift of a Smile

Put a Smile On

Everyday should begin with a SMILE.  Have you ever noticed that smiles are contagious?  Smiles make everyone around you feel better. According to Psychology Today, “Scientists and spiritual teachers alike agree that the simple act of smiling can transform you and the world around you”.  Many people do not realize the great effects of a smile, so today let’s give them away for free. Wherever you go today, put a smile on and watch how this one small gesture can make you and others feel great. 

Helping others feel happier is the goal of our “30 Days of Christmas Giving”, so today on Day 3 – Give the Gift of a Smile!

Did you know that smiling can increase the longevity of life? It releases stress, lowers blood pressure, releases feel-good chemicals, boosts the immune system and decreases your heart rate.  The benefits of a smile are abundant, therefore today let’s share it with all.  Remember they are contagious.  Watch it work yourselves!

Like the Big Purple Dinosaur Barney sings in his song “I Put a Smile On”…

Early in the morning when I get dressed
Because I always want to look my best
The first thing I do, so everyone will see
Is put a great big smile on me

I put a smile on
A smile on my face
I put a smile on
I wear it every place

I put a smile on
And soon I see
The whole world’s
Smiling back at me

A smile is pretty, a smile is free
A smile is a gift to you from me
A smile is a present in a special way
‘Cause you still get to keep it when you give it away

Have fun smiling today…

“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones”.  Proverbs 17:22

Have fun smiling today!
