do you believe in the power of SMILE?

I certainly agree with you that smile had a beneficial theraphy. A genuine smile increases the production of serotonin, the happy hormone. It's a bonding agent. Smiling builds bridges to other people around us. It keeps us from remaining aloof and separate from one another. Babies as young as three weeks old even recognize smiling as a bonding behavior. What a workout! One smile uses more than 16 muscles.
