1. Smiling increases positive emotions – more happiness and joy, means more creativity and productivity too!

2. Smiling reduces anxiety and stress – smiling and laughing can actually allow pain and stress to melt away.

3. Smiling releases endophins – even faking a smile can trigger your brain to release these happy chemicals!

4. Smiling boosts your immune system – smiling raises white blood cell count which can help fight off illness.

5. Smiling makes you more attractive – a smile is contagious and holds lots of positive energy meaning you’re more fun to be around :)

6. Smiling makes you a better leader – smiling is known to connect you with your team or group and is known as a characteristic of a good leader.

7. Smiling helps you live longer – positive and optimistic people are healthier and live 7 years longer!
