How a Smile Can Improve Your Well-being
Have you ever heard the phrase, “smiling is contagious?” When you smile at the people around you, you’re spreading feelings of joy and goodwill. New research shows how your smile doesn’t just please others — it also makes you happier while improving your health.

The mere act of smiling sends neural messages to the brain, affecting the hormones that influence your mood. This benefits your health and happiness and ultimately works towards alleviating stress. According to Smithsonian.com, smiling makes it easier for your body to deal with stressful situations.
Look Better, Feel Better & Improve Your Relationships
Smiling is a simple way to make new friends and enhance your existing relationships. People are naturally attracted to those who smile because it makes you appear happier and more pleasant to be around. Next time you’re in a social situation, try smiling more and see how people respond.
The simple act of smiling is good for your health. It relaxes your body, lowering your heart rate and blood pressure. Research has also demonstrated that smiling will boost your immune system and it even helps you live longer.
