Smile a little today. Laugh a little today.
God wants you to be happy.


It is healthy for God's children to
laugh often.


It takes more muscles to frown than
to smile.
So turn that frown upside down.


Smiling is good for you as well
as laughter.
Smiling lowers
stress and anxiety,
smiling releases endorphins ( the same

chemicals you get from working
out or running, resulting in
what is
known as a runner's high).

Laughing expands the lungs, stretches
the muscles in the body and stimulates
homeostasis.
This exercises the body, replenishing
the cells from a lungful of oxygen and
gaining all the benefits of exercising
the body.

Endorphins make us feel happier and
less stressed.
They also act as the body's natural pain
killers. For sufferers of chronic pain,
laughing and smiling can be very effective
in pain management, as can laughing
off the pain when you bump an
elbow, etc.

While the release of endorphins in
increased, the stress hormone
cortisol is reduced.

Cortisol is more active when when
we feel stressed or anxious and
contributes to the unpleasant feelings
we experience, and by lowering it,
we can reduce these negative
feelings.

Smiling strengthens your immune
system, it also helps boost
your mood,
and feel better.
The next time you feel stressed, try

smiling to calm yourself down.

Smiling helps to generate more
positive emotions within you.

Think happy positive thoughts and
put a smile on your face

so that positive opportunities can
find you.


Smiling changes your attitude,
whether you realize it or not.
If
you have doubts, next time you
feel down, start smiling and

think positive thoughts and see
what happens.
Smiling
also raises your confidence.

 
'The Lord will smile on you and
be kind to you.'
Numbers 6:25

 
'A happy heart is good medicine and
a cheerful mind
works healing.'
Proverbs 17:22

Laughter is also good for your
health.
The benefits of
laughter is:
it boosts immunity, relaxes your
muscles, relieves
stress, improves
mood and mental functioning, improves

self - esteem, helps overcome
anger, strengthens relationships,

 etc.

Laughter increases the activity of
antibodies in the body by 20%,
helping destroy viruses and
tumor cells.
 
Laughter helps you keep a positive,
optimistic outlook
through difficult
situations. And it is contagious.

Don't get stuck on the one thing
that ruins your day.
Smile and be happy.
Life is too short to waste on
negativity.
Laughter is the best antidote for
anxiety and depression.
It
lightens burdens.
It is the direct route to serenity and

contentment.

Laugh because the promises of God
belong to you already.

Laughter and joy are related to
answered prayer and

fulfillment of God's promises.

  
Jesus said, "Ask and you will receive,
so that your joy
may be full."
John 16:24

Always believe something good
is about to happen.




You'll Find When You Smile:

You'll find when you smile
Your day will be brighter
And all of your burdens
Will seem so much lighter.

For each time you smile
You will find it is true
Somebody, somewhere will
Smile back at you.

And nothing on earth
Can make life more worthwhile
Than the sunshine and warmth
Of a beautiful smile.

A Smile:

A smile costs nothing, but it
creates much.

It enriches those who receive without
impoverishing those who give.

It happens in a flash, and the memory
of it sometimes lasts forever.

None are so rich that they can get along
without it, and none are so poor but
are richer for a smile.

It creates happiness in the home, fosters
goodwill in a business, and is the
countersign of friends.

It cannot be bought, begged, borrowed
or stolen, for it is something that is no
earthly good to
anybody till it is given away.

And if it ever happens that some people
should be too tired to give you a Smile,
why not leave one of yours?

For nobody needs a Smile so much
as those who have none left to give.

What We Call Smile:

There's something you may give
A friend and stranger too;
It seems that when you give it,
It's given back to you.

This gift is worth a million,
But doesn't cost a dime;
It's lasting in effect,
But doesn't take much time.

This simple little gesture
Can make the day worthwhile
It's just as good as sunshine --
It's what we call a smile !
