Smile at Others

A sincere smile is a very kind and meaningful way to make a positive difference in someone's day. Without using words, a smile says to a person Hi, I hope you have a nice day. People appreciate being noticed and acknowledged, especially with a friendly smile. Smiling at a stranger is a positive human interaction that seems to be infrequent as people get caught up in their daily tasks. So next time you are at the store, walking down the street, or going to work or school, acknowledge someone with a smile.

Benefits

A smile can brighten someone’s day and make them feel noticed. It doesn’t take a lot of effort and can be done anywhere, anytime. It can be done quickly and without any preparation or effort, but leaves a lasting impression. Plus, smiling can also have a positive effect on your own emotions and well-being.

Step It Up

Smile at someone and ask them how they are doing or introduce yourself. A quick exchange can really improve a person’s day. Also, try smiling at as many people as you can, but remember to always be genuine.

Keep It Simple

When you smile at someone, look them in the eyes to make it more genuine.
