A sincere smile indicates positive emotions … … Researchers at Harvard University studied a group of elderly patients and their reponses to the facial expresssions of health care providers. When the caregivers’ facial expressions “perceived as more warm, caring, ┬áconcerned and empathetic,” said the researchers, the patients felt more satisfied and their physical and mental well-being improved. The opposite was the case when the caregivers’ non verbal communications distanced them from patients.” (Excerpted Your smile a gift to share AWAKE! no.1 2017)
