Life || Why should we smile more?

by - 19:24:00

Everyone always says that the best thing you can wear is your smile but have you ever thought about why?

Yes, smiling apparently makes you that little bit more attractive but what else does it do?

Well, smiling (even if it's not a real smile) actually has quite a few health benefits! Did you know that? Smiling actually boosts your immune system, because just that little mouth movement relaxes you. Try it now, just smile to yourself and relax your face, feels great right? Staying (sort of) on the topic of relaxation, smiling also changes our mood, relieves stress and lowers your blood pressure, whenever you're down or feeling like your head is about to explode, take a minute and smile and see if you can feel a difference.

Smiling has been referred to in the past (and probably still is) as the 'natural drug' as it releases endorphins, natural painkillers and serotonin and together this little group of three make us feel great. 

Onto the best point of them all, smiling is contagious! So spread it around and help everybody feel great!

Let's get smiling!
