Top 5 Reasons To Smile

Smiling is something we do, without thinking. It’s an entirely natural reaction that also triggers a very specific brain activity response. When you move your facial muscles to smile, your brain registers this activity as “happiness” – so you can see why smiling is important. 


1. IT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER

Scientists have discovered that making the effort to smile can actually change the way you feel. Your facial expressions are not simply results from a particular mood, but can actually influence them. It’s as simple as that: smile and you’ll feel better!


2. IT HELPS YOU LIVE LONGER

Research suggests that people, who smile more, tend to live longer. Smiling might improve the health of your cardiovascular system by decreasing your heart rate after a stressful event. So, when you feel stressed, upset or angry, smile instead!


3. SMILING IS CONTAGIOUS

When someone grins at you, you usually grin back. Smiling and laughter are contagious – do you need another reason to smile?


4. SMILING MAKES YOU MORE ATTRACTIVE

When faced with pictures of people, we would almost always prefer the ones who smile. People look their best, when they’re happy and, according to the vast body of evidence, people tend to look more attractive and appealing to the opposite sex, when they’re smiling. 


5. SMILING IS JUST FREAKING AWESOME

As we’ve already established, smiling doesn’t only help you feel and look better, it also makes you happier and healthier. Smiling is our natural response to happiness, but can also be a mechanism that prevents you from feeling stressed or upset. When you’re sad or angry, try not to cry – instead, smile. By forcing your facial muscles in a smile, you send your brain a signal that you must be happy… and you feel better as a result. Life is too short for feeling sad or worried – face it with a smile instead!
