How a Smile Can Improve Your Well-being
Did you know that smiling is more than just something you do when you’re happy or taking pictures? This simple action can also improve aspects of your life including your physical health, mental health, and the people around you. You may want to start smiling more thanks to the following newfound benefits.
When you smile, this simple action sends a message to your brain telling it to release the naturally occurring endorphins. This reduces the amount of stress-causing chemicals called cortisol that your body produces.
Next time you feel stressed, trying forcing a smile and it just might turn into a genuine one.
Smiling is an action that shows you’re a happy, positive person, and others tend to gravitate towards these types of people. Your smile will leave a good first impression on people you meet, which can lead to new relationships or first dates.
Your smile will show your friends and family you’re happy to be around them and may increase their happiness when they’re around you, too.
Boost Your Immune System
People who are happier and less stressed tend to live longer lives. By smiling and being happy, you can reduce your blood pressure due to the extra chemicals your body is naturally producing.
Since stress has also been known to weaken the immune system and cause illness, smiling will boost your immune system and help you maintain good health by releasing endorphins.
