Playing with soap bubbles is making a small girl smile. |

Smile is used to express a range of emotions like happiness, amusement, excitement, positivity, pleasure, and friendliness. A person who smiles often is seen as a pleasant and cheerful personality.

When we smile, feel-good hormones like dopamine and serotonin get released in our body which are responsible for happiness and reducing stress, thus the experience of pleasure.

Smile has a double effect as it makes the receiver happy too along with the person who is smiling. It improves relations, and communication. Smile is always conceived as a kind gesture.
