Sometimes you just have to fake it!

There are times when the only thing you don’t feel like doing is smiling. BUT! According to a Psychological Science study flashing that winning grin – yes, you can fake it – will actually reduce stress, making you feel better on the inside.
5 HEALTH PROMOTING REASONS TO SMILE…
1. Smiling is TRULY good for your HEALTH. Feeling relaxed and less stressed will no doubt give your immune system the boost it needs to stay strong, keeping you healthy.
2. Smiling WILL change your mood. Try it! Next time you are stuck in traffic start smiling! Work those cheek muscles and feel the happiness creep in.
3. Smiling reduces stress. Your body will release those happy little chemicals Endorphins the second you start smiling. It is that easy. Choose to smile and wait for the warm fuzzy feeling to swell in your throat and heart.
4.Smiling is a lot easier to do than frowning. Feeling lazy? Just smile. You use less muscles to smile than you do to frown. However, a smile can activate up to 53 muscles! That’s not a bad workout really 🙂
5. Smiling is the universal sign of happiness! Spread the love, people – put on your best smile before you leave the house.
