Smile

A smile surprisingly to many is a skill. A smile by definition is a facial expression formed primarily by flexing the muscles at the sides of the mouth. It often makes you feel better when you receive a smile from someone and it can make you fell better to smile. Smiling is actually a relaxation strategy; if you fell tight or stressed then take a moment and smile. There are times when a smile will ease your tension and others around you.

Poem that puts the impact of a smile in words:

There’ 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.
