As a child, we laugh, smile and play without a single care in the world. As we grow up, our smile tends to turn upside down as we’re often busy and stressed over work and personal responsibilities. It’s important that we proactively make time for fun, as there are a number of psychological benefits associated with smiling. You’ll find that as you try to form a balance between your work and personal life, you’ll be happier and healthier.
Here are a few reasons why you should smile more:
1. When you smile, neurotransmitters called endorphins are released, which make you feel happy, and in turn, decreases your stress levels.
2. Smiling is attractive! It’s true – no one wants to approach you if you look angry or upset. You know what they say, don’t frown, as you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
3. Smiling is contagious. Happy people make others happy.
4. Smiling boosts your immune system. The more you laugh and smile, the more relaxed and healthier you become. Laughter is truly the best medicine, as it increases your infection-fighting antibodies meaning you’re less likely to get sick.
The key to a happier and more positive life is smiling! Change your life and Q the Positive!
