Important role

In general, imitation of a smile plays a huge role in our socialization. Oddly enough, it is by a smile that we usually unconsciously determine whether a person is sincere or not, whether we can expect a dirty trick from him or whether he can be trusted. The thing is that our brain analyzes the facial expressions of the interlocutor and immediately makes a comparison with previous experience. For example, in this case, a person smiles barely, the corners of his lips and the brain give us a signal that no, we shouldn’t trust him, because a sincere smile looks different. But the corners of the lips are only the most superficial sign. In fact, our brain notices so many nuances that we ourselves cannot voice them and do not understand why this or that person’s smile seemed insincere to us.

The influence of positive emotions

Good manifestations of feelings are of greater interest. Efficiency increases, sleep improves, emotional state stabilizes, the hormone of joy (endorphin) is released, which is beneficial for hormonal levels. Feeling positive emotions, a person becomes stress-resistant and less susceptible to various diseases.

It’s not for nothing that pregnant women need peace and good spirits. The influence of emotions has been known since ancient times. For example, in Ancient India and China, three months after fertilization, they tried to protect a woman from a negative mood. They dressed her in luxurious clothes, played relaxing melodies, and surrounded her with exquisite objects.

And if you look at couples in love, you can see with the naked eye that these people are glowing from within. This happens due to the appearance of the hormone oxytocin in the body. It restores cells, fills them with oxygen and has a prolonged anti-aging effect.

Joyful emotions and an optimistic outlook on life have a positive impact on a person’s well-being. It has long been proven that a positive attitude helps patients who have had a heart attack recover faster and return to normal life. Thus, positive emotions, combined with a person’s internal reserves, can lead to self-healing and longevity.

In medicine and psychology, emotional therapies have long been used for the complex treatment of various types of diseases. There are many confirmed cases where patients with severe complications made a full recovery. In such people, resorption of malignant tumors was recorded, and it was impossible to explain this from a scientific point of view.

Interesting fact! The University of Pittsburgh even conducted an unusual experiment on the influence of emotions. Optimists and pessimists were asked to solve different problems. Positively minded guys were 34% more effective at solving assigned tasks. The next test was to introduce colds into each group. The results surprised even the skeptics. Pessimists experienced the disease in all its glory, while optimists suffered a mild form of the flu. Moreover, positive individuals had a much higher pain threshold than negative participants.

Emotions as the foundation of life perception

Translated from the Latin “emotion” “emoveo” means excitement, shock, experience. In other words, the mental process that arises in us in the form of a subjective reaction to a situation passes throughout the body and affects all organs, exerting different effects on them.

Our emotions vary in intensity and the higher the reaction, the greater the impact on the body. According to the degree of impact on activity, statistical and asthenic emotions are distinguished. Joy and enthusiasm that push to action belong to the first group. The second implies despondency, apathy, melancholy, while strength is depleted and there is no desire to do anything. But the stereotypical classification of feelings is firmly entrenched in society: positive and negative.

A collection of aphorisms “A Smile in Our Life” is a book about the natural external expression of human beauty and kindness. A smile is a silent laughter; it is a facial expression of a person’s inner state of mind, the joy, admiration, pleasure, fun he experiences, as well as an emotional and aesthetic reaction to observed comic objects and phenomena.

A smile for every person throughout his life serves as a good communication tool, helping to communicate and get closer to each other, creating an atmosphere of goodwill, facilitating the establishment of friendly and business contacts. A smile helps people live and love, improve their health, create happiness in the family, overcome difficulties and troubles, and lift their spirits. A smile is a subtle weapon that helps you achieve success in social struggle.

A huge variety of smiles, by contrasting them in meaning, are divided into two main types - positive and negative, and these paired varieties of smiles, depending on their social, moral, aesthetic and other significance, are distinguished in the applied classification of aphorisms related to them. In this regard, various epithets are added to smiles, indicating their specificity: the immortal smile of Gagarin and the mysterious smile of Mona Lisa, charming and unpleasant smiles, cheerful and sad smiles, smart and stupid smiles, good and evil smiles.

Smiling as a means of communication is part of nonverbal (wordless) language. Every person should strive to master the art of smiling. The ability to master the wonderful language of a smile, the art of depicting and recognizing smiles is especially necessary for young people. This book can help young boys and girls acquire such knowledge and skills. Therefore, she should become a good companion to every young man.

I would be grateful to all readers who are willing and able to send their reviews and additional materials to this collection, which will be used in its new edition (e-mail).
