Smiling is Good For Your Health and Your Wealth! - Wake the Fun Up

Smiling is Good For Your Health and Your Wealth!

We are born with the ability to smile. The simple act of smiling makes us feel better.  Smiling is so contagious, it encourages others to smile back.  Have you ever smiled at someone who had a frown on their face?  When people smile at us, it's hard not to smile back!

Why is it then ….. as we age, we smile less often?

Research shows that children smile an average of 400 times per day, compared to the average happy adult who smiles 40-50 times per day. The typical adult only smiles about 20 times per day.

Why is smiling important?

According to Earlexia Norwood, M.D.  Smiling not only offers a mood boost but helps our bodies release cortisol and endorphins.  

The Health Benefits of Smiling:

  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Increased endurance
  • Reduced pain
  • Reduced stress
  • Strengthened immune system

Studies show that people who smile appear more likeable, courteous and competent.  Smilers tend to be more productive at work and smilers make more money.

We hope these pictures and captions make you smile.  Everyone will benefit when you share your smile with others!
