We all have our favorite quotes about smiling. There are quotes about how smiling can change the world, make you more beautiful, and show love to others.  A smile is a powerful tool. Mask or no mask, there are plenty of reasons we should choose to smile more.

Smiling can relieve stress. After this past year, who couldn’t use a stress reliever? Studies have found that smiles and laughter can decrease your heart rate and blood pressure causing your body to feel calmer and more relaxed. The next time you feel stressed, try smiling!

Smiling can improve your mood. The simple act of smiling can influence your emotional state through the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, which can elevate your mood. 

Smiling boosts the immune system. That’s right, it has been proven through scientific studies that smiling can make our bodies more resilient to the common cold and flu. The release of neurotransmitters relaxes your body which improves the function of your immune system. Keep smiling, even if behind your mask!

Smiling is contagious, the good kind of contagious! When someone smiles at you, you often return the smile. The response is due to facial mimicry. Share a smile even if 6 feet away, it may help those around you.

Additionally, smiling can make you appear younger, confident, and more attractive. We are naturally drawn to people who smile.
