Smiling is magical for 2 reasons:

#1 – Smiling makes you happier

Studies show when you smile you are actually more resilient to stress, even when giving a forced smile, though the more genuine the smile, the more beneficial the effects.

#2 – Smiling is contagious

Other studies show the brain’s automatic reflex when we see a smiling face is to smile back. It takes work for the brain NOT to smile at a happy person.

Spork and KazooOften I have a good backup happy thoughts for when times are tough like sporks and kazoos, Muir Woods and lately the F group A Mighty Girl.

What always makes you smile?

I dare you to spread some contagious smiles today!
