Share a Smile Day
Share a Smile Day is held on March 1. This event in the first decade of the month March is annual. Help us
Broadly speaking, there are three kinds of smiles: smiles of reward, smiles of affiliation, and smiles of dominance. A smile may be among the most instinctive and simple of expressions — just the hoisting of a couple of facial muscles.
Brilliant smiles radiate joy, excitement, confidence, health and vitality. Your smile plays an important role in the happiness of your everyday life. Smiling activates tiny molecules in your brain that are designed to fend off stress. These molecules, called neuropeptides, facilitate communication between neurons in your brain. Also, when you smile, your brain releases dopamine, endorphins and serotonin.
