Smiling makes you happier!

Smiling makes you happier so smile first, be happy later!
Here are 3 reasons to smile today:
1. Smiling helps to reduce all our stress hormones like cortisol, adrenalin and dopamine whilst increasing the happy endorphin hormones as well as reducing blood pressure.
2. A smile is contagious. As children we learn to smile by mimicking people smiling at us. This habit is still within us. A little like the contagion of a yawn! So not only can you make yourself feel better you can pass it on to someone else. Smile at someone today :)
3. Smiling connects us with other people and is worth so much more than you can imagine. So often we forget the power of a smile, a kind word, a listening ear and small acts of kindness. 
These are small things which have huge effects. So share this smile with someone else today and spread the happiness.
