The Benefits of Smiling

Relieves Stress

Your body immediately releases endorphins when you smile, even when you force it. This sudden change in mood will help you feel better and release stress.

Boosts your mood

Simulating a genuine smile can boost your mood. Psychologists have found that even if you’re in bad mood, you can instantly lift your spirits by simulating (not fake but choose to engage in) a genuine smile.

Helps your immune system

Smiling also strengthens your immune system. Your body is more relaxed when you smile, which contributes to good health and a stronger immune system.

Helps you get promoted

Smiling make a person seem more attractive, sociable, and confident, and people who smile more are more likely to get a promotion.

Better than makeup

A research study conducted discovered that 69% of people find women more attractive when they smile than when they are wearing makeup.

They are contagious

It’s not just a saying, smiling really is contagious. In a study conducted in Sweden, people had difficulty frowning when they looked at other subjects who were smiling, and their muscles twitched into smiles all on their own.

Smiling is a universal sign of happiness

While handshakes, hugs, and bows all have varying meanings across cultures, smiling is known around the world and in all cultures as a sign of happiness and acceptance.

Covid may have taken away handshakes and hugs, but it can’t take away our smiles! It’s beneficial for your mind, body, and overall well-being. So, if you’re feeling blue, crack a little smile even if you don’t feel like it, we promise it’ll make you feel just a little bit better.
