Step 18 - Smile and the world smiles with you

Day 18 of the National Blog Post Month challenge where I’m writing a blog post every day along the theme of 30 Steps to Happiness and Contentment.

 Just a quick one today as I'm taking a leaf out of my own book (Step 9 - Don't be too hard on yourself).  You would not believe what I've had to cram into my day, so it's a wonder I've managed to write anything at all.

Today's tip, though short, is still a very important step towards happiness and contentment.

Smile and the world smiles with you
Simple, I know, but effective.  A smile is infectious, if you smile at others they can't help but smile back and it also makes you feel better inside.  So even if you're feeling upset, worried or down, just try smiling more.  It may not solve your problems, but it will make you feel better and people will react to you more positively.

Try it - what have you got to loose?
