Waking up with a bright smile in the morning is a wonderful feeling. It’s like a fresh new start where you relax your body and release positive energy.

According to Mayo Clinic smiling is proven to relieve stress. As collegiettes™ we are sometimes under pressure with all the due dates coming up and we forget to calm ourselves.  Smile a little more throughout the day to release the tension.

Cheer up your face with a smile. It won’t entirely sincere at first, but you’ll find yourself feeling better even if you fake it.

Did you know that when you smile you increase your productivity? Smiling has been shown to increase productivity while performing multiple tasks. Therefore, when you are caught with tons of homework SMILE and see the difference.

Also, smiling makes you more trustful to others. Yes! It encourages trust. But, it has to be a genuine smile. Trust is vital when dealing with people. Remember relationships are built on trust. Let’s smile!

I bet when you are feeling sick or depressed you forget to smile. Well, smiling and laughter both have been shown to lessen pain. So, under tears and sad faces strike a smile and light up your day.     


The amazing part of smiling is that it’s contagious. Try smiling to every person you see and more than half will smile back. As you spread the happiness around you, one way or another, it will come back to you.

Collegiettes™ build attraction with a smile. Smiling makes people more attractive and confident. Now whenever you see a cute guy around campus you know what to do. Don’t simply make eye contact. Men are more likely to approach a woman who smiles!

There’s too many goodness with just a smile. Inspire others and create a happy environment. Living a life where smiles and laughter surrounds you is like a dream. Why not try it? We can all do it and have great time.
