A lot of people these days that i encounter rarely smile. Maybe they are not used to smiling at everyone. Do you know that frowning uses more muscles that would mean more effort compared to smiling which uses less muscle therefore less effort. Yet there are more people used to frowning. A smile creates a great vibe and positive energy that makes a persons day nice or you can make another person's day nice. I was told once that there are countries that rarely smile and that they have a seminar on "How to Smile", its kind a sad that they were not trained to smile when they were kids. Is thing real for some countries? How about in your country?

I know Germany has laughing seminars, but that's different than smiling. Anyways, not many people smile here a lot either. Myself I'm one of those. I don't really frown either so, I just have a neutral face costing nothing at all :P. It is something which just goes without realizing though, even when having the sensation of smiling yourself your face might still look pretty much neutral if you barely use any muscles in doing so.
