World Smile Day: What to know before the day in 2021

Introduction – What is World Smile Day

World Smile Day is an event that is organized to bring people together to smile. The day is celebrated on the 20th of November every year. The purpose of this event is not just limited to making people smile but also includes spreading happiness all over the globe.

The ambassador for the day, Dr. Randeep Guliana, has stated that “A happy person empowers others.” He has also added that “A smile costs nothing but gives much.” Mr. Sonja Gruszczynska-Oskam initiated world Smile Day in June 2010 after she realized how easy it was to make someone smile. She then thought of this event that would be able to spread happiness.

What people do on world smile day

On this day, people are requested to share their happiness through social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. A lot of people are supporting the cause by sharing pictures of themselves smiling on these sites.

Sonja initially had no plan to celebrate this event worldwide but was happy with how it turned out after posting her idea online. The 2015 theme is “Smile for No Reason.” Everyone can participate in World Smile Day’s events that may include sharing your smile online or giving away something you love to someone else who needs it more than you do.

If everyone acts on this call, there will be nothing happier than seeing smiles all over the world on 20th November 2015!

Smiling is important for so many reasons. It can help you feel more confident, it helps others relax their guard and be open with you, and it even has some physical benefits. A recent study on the effects of smiling showed that people who smiled before they were asked to do an exercise had lower heart rates than those who didn’t smile beforehand.

Smiling may also improve your immune system function by releasing a hormone called oxytocin which prevents inflammation when happy or excited. The next time someone tells you “smile!” know that good things are happening inside your body at the same time as well as outside of it!
