52 Reasons To Smile

52 Reasons To Smile is a more in-depth look at the power of smiling. A smile is a person's calling card, and it lets others know whether they should come (or remain) close or turn away. The reason for that is because a smile creates a welcoming aura and emanates warmth, while, conversely, a frown conveys a negative-Nelly attitude. Naturally, others like to be around those who emit feelings of positivity. It's certainly more fun and can also help them to feel better about their own situation. Readers are offered one idea for every week of the year. If the prescription is followed, at the end of the year, you will experience a change in perspective, be filled with good cheer and have spread this good cheer to others.
