Smiling is better than frowning

Here are more reasons why smiling is better than frowning:

- It takes less muscles to smile than it does to frown "It takes seventeen muscles to smile and forty-three to frown." Author Unknown

- Smiling will relieve stress whereas frowning can actually increase stress "It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body... the heart." Author Unknown

- People are attracted to those who smile. When was the last time you wanted to meet a person who was frowning? "Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles. What do we live for if not to make the world less difficult for each other?" George Eliot

- Smile and your eyes lighten up. Frown and your eyes darken. "Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important." Janet Lane

- The cost of a smile is zero. "A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks." Charles Gordy

To summarize, we leave you with a quote from Phyllis Diller,
"A smile is a curve that sets everything straight."
