Why You Should Smile & Other Monday Humor

Did you know that when you smile you release a chemical message deep within your brain known as an Endorphin? Once released these Endorphins travel down the spine sending feel good messages throughout the rest of your body as they go.

These Endorphins are strong enough to actually have the power to reduce symptoms of physical, or emotional pain, and they will blanket you with a nice warm fuzzy feeling of well being. They are a chemical of approximately the same strength as another feel good chemical that we know as Morphine (wow huh!)

Endorphins have the ability to make you feel happy, and whenever you smile, you release them. So even if you are not happy when you begin to smile, you will be after wards, and the more often that you smile then the happier that you will feel. Smiling has also been proven to be contagious, so you have the power to make other people smile, and you can do this by simply passing a smile to someone else.

All you have to do to make someone happy is to smile at them. It’s a fact
