Today's Kindness: May 31, 2022
Happy National Smile Day! #NationalSmileDay #CelebrateEveryDay
Smiling at and with other people - whether they be friends and family or complete strangers that we come across on the street - releases a host of great hormones in our bodies, which enhance everyone's health. Stress levels are lowered, thus reducing any related chance of inflammation and pain.
Countless studies have shown that the very act of seeing another person smile triggers an automatic muscular response that produces a smile on our face. Yes, smiling is contagious, and science has demonstrated that time and time again.
By smiling at others, you can contribute to their happiness and their health can make them feel rewarded and create strong and long-lasting bonds and relationships.
"I just like to smile, smiling's my favorite."
- Buddy The Elf, From "ELF"
