Your smile is not just an expression of your happiness. It is a weapon, a tool, a medicine, a therapy, an attack or defense technique (baffled?) a natural technology, a beauty device but above all it is a window to your emotional being. But smiling has many more benefits.
Sometimes you smile because you are happy. But sometimes your smile makes you happy
Smile doesn't just signify your happiness - It switches a button in your brain to actually make you feel happy starting a chain reaction of making others feel happy and ultimately making you feel happier.
So by smiling you actually trigger a chemical changes in your brain that affects your thinking, attitude, personality and state of mind.
Rewiring your tendencies
When you smile your brain mechanically registers this activity and tracks its frequency which in turn subsides the negative emotions rising or residing in your head. So, the more you smile the more effective you get at breaking down the negativity in your brain. If you smile often enough or train yourself to do so, you end up rewiring yourself from negative to positive!

It Alters Your Outlook Positively
More recently, psychologists at the University of Sussex in England reported that when we smile, we see other people’s frowns as less severe, and that when we frown we see their smiling faces as less happy.
Now, in a new paper in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, a research team based in London and Madrid has further explored the possibility that when we smile it actually changes the way our brains process other people’s emotions. To do this, they used a technique called EEG (electroencephalography) to record the brainwaves of 25 participants as they looked at photographs of faces that were either smiling or showing a neutral expression.
