Smile, smile, smile - Half Smile Skill

I just read  that August 5 - 11 is National Smile Week. So, this is a great week to practice your half smile skill. Research shows that smiling lowers blood pressure, relieves stress, decreases depression and boosts immunity. Half smiles put people at ease and create a positive atmosphere that can help interpersonal relationships and emotional regulation. So, why not extend this week by making smiling a daily habit!
