Smile!
woman 1031000 1920
It's definitely a crazy time right now with the COVID-19 pandemic, toilet paper frenzy and sanitizer rationing. One thing we can all do that will benefit us and those around us is to smile.
Smiling releases endorphins (natural pain killers), dopamine, and serotonin (natural anti-depressant) into our bloodstream helping out body to relax and lower our heart rate and blood pressure. In addition, smiling releases neuropeptides: tiny molecules that help us fight off stress. Smiling and laughing also boost our immune systems by increasing immune cells and antibodies!
Smiling is also infectious! When someone else observes you smiling it will make them want to smile as well.
Smiling also activates the orbitofrontal cortex in the people that see you smiling. This is the reward processing area of the brain so other people feel as if they are being rewarded by seeing you smile.
So when you're feeling down, overwhelmed, or stressed, try to smile (faking it works, too!). That toothy grin (or even toothless!) will do wonders for those around you while benefiting you as well. It's a win win!
