sharing a 3 Stages of smile with all of you. Let's see which stage we are in?
First Stage:Smile when greeting others
The easiest thing but hard to make it,right? Feel shy to smile with the people we don't know, while a smile may delight the hearts of those who are grieving. Who knows, someone feel relieved when see our smile? With smiles, we can get a new friends, with a warm smiles we can also ask people when we don't know and it all starts with a BIG smile. First, when we want to make a move, ignore the shame that we had when we smile people just ignore it. Bear in your mind that smile is sadaqah.
Second Stage: Forced to smile and not sincere
Forced to smile will be a fake smile. When we show facial expressions of sadness, others may be depressed by us. Review Psychological Science in 2012 pointed out that by forcing yourself to smile, we'll feel more relaxed :
A team of researchers, using chopsticks, has been experimenting with manipulating page 169 volunteers either to make a neutral face (not smiling) or smile naturally. Volunteers, which some of them were instructed to smile, then do some pretty stressful activities while continuing to hold the chopsticks into their mouths.Based on the monitored heart rate and stress levels (as told by volunteer), researchers found that those who smile naturally is the most relaxed while doing the activity.
When are in stress or grief mood, try to push yourself to smile even it will seems weird sometimes because at least it can reduce stress and make you more happy.
Third Stage:Smile comes from your heart
