According to a new study researchers found that when mothers look at their babies it activates certain parts of the brain known to be activated by other positive acts such as finding food or a mate. Researchers call this an “evolutionary survival” effect. Most mothers admit that seeing their smiling babies has an addictive effect on them. They want to see it over and over again because it makes them happy.
It’s great that science can prove this connection between happy motherhood and smiling babies. Smiles are important to every age though.
We know without questioning that a smiling baby creates strong feelings of happiness, but now we have this proven by science. We all can learn from babies by remembering that each smile for another person creates happiness.
I encourage you to smile at the persons you meet tomorrow. You don’t need to say anything, just smile. You’ll see that your smile creates happiness and you’ll get smiles back.
This is the practical proof of lived esteem working through smiles.
