Did you know that smiling is actually powerful?? Yup! Showing those pearly whites are beneficial not only to you but to the people around you. Not only is it a basic emotion that dogs and babies react to on a instinctual level but it subconsciously changes your outlook at the time you are smiling!
Smiling releases all those feel good hormones we love so much! If you are having a bad day then the simplest way to feel better is to force yourself to smile. Using the muscles for smiling tricks your brain into thinking you are happy 🙂 so it reacts by releasing Oxytocin and other wonderful hormones at the same time suppressing cortisol. So you can actually make yourself happy by simply smiling. How awesome is that?!
Have you ever noticed that if you are walking around smiling people are more likely to smile back at you? When you put yourself in a happy state people react subconsciously to you and feel better in your presence. So no matter what you are going through if you just choose to be happy and smile your life will become brighter! Enjoy your day and do not forget to SMILE!!!
