Smiling spreads happiness and health

The most famous feature of the world’s most famous painting, the Mona Lisa, is her smile. A natural smile can light up a room, making those around feel happiness and comfort.
Myanmar people are famous for their hospitality and friendliness. Despite this, some workers dealing with the public, especially at government agencies, hardly smile at people, greeting them instead with a frown.
Discontent over social or financial affairs might be behind their lack of a smile. However, they need to learn to smile, as it can raise their spirits and in turn make others around them happy.
Through practice, smiling can become effortless. A wholehearted smile, which appears in the eyes, is infectious.
Myanmar is increasingly exposed to the international community as the country promotes its tourism industry and business ties with foreign countries. However, many staff at government agencies, and even many at private firms, lack heartfelt smiles.
Genuine smiles can act as a tourist attraction. Smiles can reduce feelings of stress and depression in others. Anatomically speaking, a smile is a complex mechanism involving a collection of facial muscles and a variety of signals and chemicals in the brain that influence emotion. More staff, especially those in the service sector, must learn to smile automatically. When the habit is developed, they will uplift their own mood and that of others, becoming more productive at work and improving their relationships, as smiling can help develop social and personal connections.
