Smiling increases your health & happiness – maybe even to the point of helping you live longer – & benefits the people around you
Science has proven that smiling helps calm your nervous system by lowering heart rate and blood pressure as well as releasing feel-good chemicals in your brain that can boost motivation and confidence, reduce perceptions of pain, and trigger positive feelings, promoting an overall good mood.
People who smile often are also perceived by others as more attractive, reliable, relaxed, and sincere. Seeing you smile will also encourage others to smile, & receive the good benefits.
Even faking a smile when you are blue can help turn that frown upside down!
