Here are 6 hidden benefits to smiling:

Longer Lifespan: A genuine grin is linked to a longer life. Keep smiling and stay youthful!

Attractiveness Magnet: We're naturally drawn to smiles. And not only can smiling make you more attractive, but it can also make you look more youthful. Instead of opting for a facelift, just pop on a good song and let that smile shine.1 

Stress Reduction: Stress can affect so much of how we feel and what we do. But counterintuitively, a smile can actually reduce your stress - even when you don't feel like smiling (or you're just faking it.) Next time you feel stressed, try out an intentional smile.2
Mood Booster: Smiling actually tricks your brain into hapiness. It releases feel-good neurotransmitters ( dopamine & serotonin). You could even think of smiling as a mini natural antidepressant.3

Smiling Is Contagious: We've all heard that smiles can light up the room - but there's actually some truth to this. Your brain automatically notices, interperts other people's facial expression, and mimics them. That means that someone might see your smile and immediately smile themselves.4

Hidden Health Benefits: Smiling can actually help your immune system function more effectively and actually lower your blood pressure. Smiling helps you stay relaxed - which is very beneficial for immune function. At the same time, laughter has been shown to lower blood pressure with immediacy.5-6
