Smile! with Busy Life

The magic of sharing your smile is in it's ability to make not just you, but others that little bit more happy and healthy.

Smiling has a positive effect on a person's health and well being. You smile and you feel better. Even better, share that smile and you might make someone else feel better! As I say on my home page, for me, what society needs are more little acts of kindness that can collectively result in the power to do good. Sharing a smile with someone is one of the easiest little acts of kindness that someone can do and it's free! So, on this page, I have added some photos that have and still do make me smile. I hope they raise a smile from you!

 I would also like to include photos taken by Busy Life supporters that make them smile. Photos need to have been taken by you. Please, no real, identifiable people, but anything else, e.g., cartoons, views, landscapes, flowers, pets etc will probably be fine. To add to this page, please email your photo to Please, note, all photos are anonymised and moderated to ensure they reflect our company ethos! I look forward to hearing from you! I hope you have seen something today that has made you smile, and that maybe, you have been able to share that smile with someone. 

Busy Life supporters. This is who we are.

As you all know, I think smiling and sharing your smiles has great benefits in terms of our well-being. However, don't just take my word for it! In this section, I will be recording the quotations from the Smile Clouds I have posted on social media this month.

"On parkrunday, the day formerly known as Saturday, I always wake up and smile a really big smile. Why? I get to run with my running buddies, forget about my worries, and start the day with a great sense of achievement. Go to a parkrun today and get to share my smile! Thank you." Dr Joanna Baker-Rogers

"Smile it's free therapy." Douglas Horton.

"Smile at each other. Smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other. It doesn't matter who it is - and that will hep to grow up in greatest love for each other". Mother Theresa.

An Ode to Junior parkrun

"On Sunday morning, I wake up and I smile. For it is Junior parkrun; a run just over a mile. I will not be running, its age four to fourteen; it takes place in our parks that are ever so green. I marshal, I smile, I clap, and I cheer! Me, in the sunshine, and the fab volunteers. Kids run, jog, and walk; and laugh as they go. Their pace doesn't matter, whether it's fast or it's slow. Whatever their time they will be glad to have run. Then off to the playground to have even more fun". Dr Joanna Baker-Rogers.

"Life is like a mirror. Smile at it and its smiles back at you". Peace Pilgrim.

"If you smile when you are alone, then you really mean it". Andy Rooney.

"Wear a smile and have friends: wear a scowl and have wrinkles". George Elliot.

"A smile is a friend maker". Bangambiki Habyarimana.
