A spontaneous response from situations or things that brings us laughter or joy – a smile. This conclusion is without a doubt true, what people oversee is that smiling might be just like a voluntary response, a conscious and powerful choice. Multiple scientific studies have shown that genuine smile is considered generally attractive to other people around us.

Some studies cast a light on why the act of smile uplift one’s mood and those around them. Yet, some found the strong link within longevity, good health, and smiling. The most, studies showed that just an act of smile (making the movements and physical facial shape), may it be a result of genuine joy or just an act, can both have a short or-and a long-term benefit to a person’s wellbeing and health.

Still not persuaded? These are the 10 reasons why you should have a conscious effort to keep on smiling every day.

reasons to smile

Stress can really fill our whole being, and it reflects in our looks. With a smile, it helps us not to look worn down, tired and overwhelmed and yet it can really benefit us because it reduces stress. You may or may not believe it, but smiling reduces stress even though you’re not in the mood to smile or even know that you are already smiling. If you’re stressed, take hold of that time to smile. Not only you will take in the benefits but everyone around you.
