Smile is a natural response that is deeply contagious and keeps others happy. Try smiling at someone now and get one hell of a smile in return. It also makes you feel good and sure keeps you out of a bad mood.
A smile can bring up laughter, no one ever laughed without first giving a smile and this can turn to a mini work out where calories are burnt .
