Do you smile as a spiritual or health practice? Or do you smile only when you feel like smiling? Research tells us smiling has proven to lower heart rate, reduce stress and slow breathing. Research also shows that when we smile, our insides produce more happiness hormones and emotional happiness. Spiritual masters such as the Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh, teach us to smile as a spiritual practice as an invitation for people to experience kindness. Try it for World Smile Day! Smile everywhere you go and watch people’s reaction. Pretty cool huh?
