With a new year just starting and snow falling, we’re sure you have plenty to smile about. Here are 10 reasons why you should be smiling and things to smile about.
Benefits of Smiling
Smiling makes you more attractive
We are drawn to people who are smiling and away from people who are frowning. It also makes you feel more confident and more likely to make a better impression.
Smiling relieves stress
When you smile, endorphins are released which improves your overall mood and helps gets rid of stress. Our brains are hardwired to believe that we only smile when we are happy so by smiling you can actually trick your brain into thinking you are in a better mood!
Smiling improves your immune system
Another scientific reason to turn that frown upside down – it can actually help boost your immune system. It has been reported that the body releases more white blood cells when you’re smiling than it usually does. White blood cells protect the body against infectious diseases and foreign invaders, so it’s a really easy way of staying healthy. That’s the reason why celebrities are often invited to children’s hospitals.
It makes you more productive
A study conducted in 2010 showed that people who smile more, are much more productive and creative in the workplace. Smiling is contagious so spread that smile around.
