17 Simple Ways That Can Even Make Voldemort Go Smiling

A blow of fresh wind on your face leads you to nothing but a smile. When you wake up to a bed tea  in a tiring morning leads you to nothing but a smile. 

Actually, talking in practicality, a smile is nothing but a simple and effortless stretch of the muscles around your lips, and talking genuinely it is the greatest gift in the world. Because according to a popular saying by Stanley Gordon West, 'Smile and the world smiles with you'. To be simple, smile and spread smile.

I might be sounding a little boring to you, but on this 'World Smile Day' what I want is you to smile for I say it is the shortest distance between two people, and if you do that, then my purpose of making at least one of the person smile will be accomplished.

Well, you might find many essays on this topic over the internet, so this is not just another addition to it but my personal sharing with you. Starting with the basic thing... I would like to tell you that the word 'thank you' is directly proportional to the word 'smile'. You thank someone without any intention to get back anything in return and just see what happens. The other person smiles, and his smile will touch you leading you to smile even broader.

Talking on a lighter note, a smile has become very important with the invention of 'selfie'

World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday of the month of October every year, and this time, the simplest task of making the world smile is on October 7, 2016. Bringing you nothing philosophical, is my today's account, which is just what I wanted to share with everybody.

3. Thank the elevator man

Yes, when we get bored with a daily routine of ours, which involves a variety of activities, then just think about the elevator man, who has his world within the 4 walls of the elevator. So, just thank him before leaving it. He will be overwhelmed!

4. Spend time with your grandparents.

4. Spend time with your grandparents.

Obviously, children are closer to their grandparents in comparison to their parents, but what you need to realize is that they are retired and have no major purpose left in their lives to make their themselves busy with. Plus, they may have a fear of that their life journey is about to end. So spend most of the time with them and carry out an activity of play with them. Their smile will be no less than a child.

5. Call an old friend.

5. Call an old friend.

In our busy lives, we keep in touch with people through messages, which have certainly reduced the usage of phone calls. In the midst of this, calling your friend will not only bring happiness to you but also to your friend.

7. Compliment someone on his or her appearance.

Yeahhh... I cannot guarantee about the guys but yes a compliment for a girl on her appearance can make her day. Just appreciate her and notice the way she blossoms. I think this would work with Voldemort too.

8. Dress beautiful, feel beautiful.

8. Dress beautiful, feel beautiful.

I find it as a very effortless technique. Whenever I feel low or don't feel like going to work, I wear new clothes and yes I feel good. My day fills with energy because every time I look into the mirror I smile.

9. Offer a seat in the bus to the needy.

9. Offer a seat in the bus to the needy.

This is nothing new I am telling you, but I have been apparently noticing people in the public vehicles, not offering seats to the needy. An old person, a woman carrying a child or say a disabled, there are people who turn a blind eye to them. Having a seat by yourself will save your legs from pain but offering one will save you from regret.

10. Let someone win the game.

10. Let someone win the game.

A kiddish one, but yes this act of yours will always be cherished. Your friend will never forget this lovely day and always cling to the moment.

11. Offer help to your mom or wife in the kitchen.

11. Offer help to your mom or wife in the kitchen.

Spending a day in the kitchen, is the biggest of all the tasks. So, just offering your mom or wife to chop some vegetables or helping her with a few arrangements might reduce her stress and the contentment will surely add a smile to her face.

12. Ladies... for once you can say sorry to your husband/bf... haha!

12. Ladies... for once you can say sorry to your husband/bf... haha!

I don't think that there is any need for explanation here. Saying sorry to a guy, will not only make his day, but you will find him blooming with this pleasure. Yes, this will be a beautiful feeling because he will know that he is important to you.

13. Appreciate someone for the food they have cooked.

13. Appreciate someone for the food they have cooked.

My mom loves it, even my father loves it when he makes tea for the family. And my sister, she is just fond of it, my grandma, when she prepares breakfast, even she loves to be appreciated. Not leaving me behind, I just know how to cook Maggi, but still I look for the positive feedback. Just a compliment will make them work all the way boosted up.

14. Leave a thank you note to your mom.

14. Leave a thank you note to your mom.

Well, I think my note says it all... and my mother will cry tears of happiness after reading this.

15. Smile because you are easy to work with...

15. Smile because you are easy to work with...

A bad news from a doctor will also be welcoming enough if it comes from a smiling face; a complaint will also be welcoming if it comes from a happy boss; the distasteful food of the mess will also become yummy if served with a happy smile. Yes, smile converts everything upside down.

16. Playing with pets...

16. Playing with pets...

This is lovely you know. Even I was never interested to entertain pets, but when I started noticing them, I was kind of attracted to their innocence. Whenever you feel low, just come out of your indoors, the baby animals around you are the best source to make you smile.

17. I smiled when:

17. I smiled when:

1) My FIRST story got published.

Thank you for being my reader, because if you are reading this, you are making me smile.

Smile because...

Smile because...

It not only creates a positivity in the environment but within your body itself. You yourself think, that you would be loving a smiling face so why just not give it first. Not going on a heavy note, but yes, a smile is that gift which you can give to others infinitely and that too free of cost. When you know all of these, then why to wait for a clown to come and make you happy... smile yourself.
