Smiling for health and happiness

We smile every time we read about smiles!  

Two scientists from the University of Kansas investigated the potential benefits of smiling by examining different types of smiling and the effects of smiling on the body.  A big smile – even when it’s forced – has been scientifically proven to decrease stress levels and can even slow down your heart rate.  

So the next time you are stressed, try a smile and see how it helps!
