National Smile Power Day
A Smile Is A Powerful Thing
“Confidence, health, and quality of life are just benefits for the person doing the smiling, the power communicated to the person – or people – receiving the smile is immeasurable.”
Smiles are so powerful that we’ve dedicated an entire month to them, not to mention more than one commemorative “World” day, along with more than one “National” days.
Here are a few of the most widely-known commemorative months & days dedicated to celebrating the ubiquitous smile:
- National Smile Month – May 13 – June 13 (this year)
- National Smile Day – May 31
- World Smile Day – Oct 4 (The 1st Friday of October each year)
That certainly doesn’t include the long list of national months and days dedicated to the health of our smiles.
What does all this mean?
That a simple smile is an incredibly powerful thing…and yup, there’s a day to celebrate the power of our smiles too!
National Smile Power Day – June 15, 2019
National Smile Power Day is celebrated annually, on June 15th. It’s a day for all of us to share the power of a smile.
“When you smile at someone, you are telling them that they are valued and worth the smile that you just gave them. Smiles are morale boosters and confidence builders.”
Here is your National Smile Power Day mission:
1. Start your day with a smile.
2. Challenge yourself to smile more often today.
3. Use a smile to disarm a tense situation.
4. Smile during your daily tasks.
5. Use #SmilePowerDay on social media.
What’s In A Smile?
The power to evoke emotion, the power to communicate happiness, the power to instantly change your mood – or someone else’s.
There are actually 2 types of smiles…standard smiles, and genuine or Duchenne smiles, which engage the muscles surrounding both the mouth and eyes.
Genuine smiles are the healers. For real, smiling is healthy!
Age old adages, such as ‘grin and bear it’ have suggested smiling to be not only an important nonverbal indicator of happiness but also wishfully promotes smiling as a panacea for life’s stressful events.
“The next time you are stuck in traffic or are experiencing some other type of stress you might try to hold your face in a smile for a moment.”
“Not only will it help you ‘grin and bear it’ psychologically, but it might actually help your heart health as well.”
A smile is universally understood, we all smile in the same language!
Here’s something that we guarantee will make you smile…
“We wouldn’t get her an electric toothbrush, so she just pretends.” ????
