A smile is the quickest, cheapest and easiest way to dramatically increase your lovely quotient.   The bigger the smile the better.

Scientific studies have shown that the facial expressions we make can influence the emotional response we experience. The more you smile, the more positive you feel.  Instead of focusing on the negative day you may be having, take a deep breathe and smile.  It really will change your outlook. 

A smile is contagious.  Here are some lovely quotes about smiles and smiling.
