Smiling is one of the most powerful nonverbal communication skills. Not only can a smile express emotions, it also influences how others see us, and can have an impact on social success. Smiling has also been associated with many health benefits.

Studies have shown that the smile can increase overall mood. One study’s results found that smiling can reduce stress and increase happiness, while frowning can lower mood. Smiling helps increase the release of dopamine, which is associated with pleasure and euphoria.
