The Power of a Smile has been described many times.

For centuries, people have studied the power of smiling and psychologists continue to uncover more benefits of smiling.

Online you can find advice for how to smile, how to use the power of your smiles, and more.

And if you need more evidence, the commercial success of dental procedures for improving your smile suggests how important a good smile can be.

Here’s a photo of the band at a recent New Year’s Eve gala.  We’re smiling, probably thinking we’ll be back again next year.  And sure enough…

Two years ago I wrote about why weddings and parties make me smile. Now, off the top of my head, let me mention several of my own favorite benefits of smiling.

By the way, all these benefits and more can easily be yours.  Not only will you improve with a little practice every day, but I guarantee the process will be rewarding and enjoyable.

First of all, smiling cheers me up and invigorates me on a busy day.

Second, I enjoy eliciting smiles in people I meet. Those smiles are like a reflex, and maybe the tendency to smile back really is part of our inborn hardware.

Third, I feel closer to the people I’m smiling back to, so I’ve learned that smiling is a great help whenever I’m having a friendly conversation.

Similarly, smiling is a great asset whenever I meet people, whether face to face or through a video recording.  And not only when people see me, but I believe people can hear when I’m smiling, and I’m always careful to smile whenever I’m on the telephone.

Particularly when I’m chatting with a bride-to-be or an Event Planner, and we’re discussing how to select the music for their celebration.

Finally, at the end of a party, guests often tell me what a treat it was to see how much we enjoyed entertaining them.  In other words, in addition to the mood our music created, our smiles helped everyone have a wonderful time.

Of course, this is not the last word on the subject.  What more can YOU add?

Like music, a genuine smile always helps me enjoy whatever I’m doing.  It makes me more effective.  Do you smile often?  However you answer, I recommend that you smile more.

I love this post Robbie! I too enjoy encouraging others to smile and have had people tell me they can hear me smiling over the phone when I talk to them. It does make a difference!

Thanks, Stacie. You have a wonderful smile, and I’m glad you enjoy using it. Who knows, perhaps smiling will help you weather that frigid midwest winter. 🙂
