The science behind your smile…
We all know a beautiful smile can light up a room. But did you know that smiling is good for your health? When you smile, it activates feel good messages straight to your brain that help you to relax along with lowering your heart rate and blood pressure. It also releases a mood-lifting chemical, meaning a smile is a 100% natural anti-depressant. Get smiling and get happy!
Did you also know that there’s a scientific reason why smiling is contagious?

The next time you see someone looking grumpy, flash them your best smile and help to turn that frown upside down!
