Did you know your smile is a powerful tool?

  • When you smile, endorphins and serotonin are activated in the body causing you to relax and de-stress.
  • Research shows smiling is a mood changer.   A smile is facial feedback for the brain.  When we smile, the brain senses the flexion of certain facial muscles required to smile and interprets it as “Oh I must be happy about something.”  (Smile A Powerful Tool: psychologytoday.com)
  • Smiling is contagious.   When a person sees another person smiling, their orbitofrontal cortex is activated and processes sensory rewards.  So when a person catches another person smiling, they feel the good feeling of being rewarded and smile back at you.  (https://sites.psu.edu/-smiling-contagious/)

It is said we can smile because we are happy or we can become happy when we smile.   Now that you know, how will you use this powerful tool called your smile?
