Today is World Smile Day, so we thought we would share with you some of the great health benefits you can get from a simple smile.
Aside from making the world a nicer place the mere act of smiling can:
reduce blood pressure
lower stress hormones
boost your mood
strengthen your immune system
improve relationships with those around you
help you stay positive
make you more approachable
All that just from a smile!
At the happy workspace co we are big fans of smiling.
"Life is like a mirror, smile at it and it smiles back at you"
A British study found that one smile generates the same level of brain stimulation as up to 2,000 bars of chocolate, so it’s a calorie free way to feel good.
Today we challenge you to smile at your work colleagues, because smiling is contagious and the more we do it the better everyone around us feels.
