A healthy diet is a good way to improve your overall health, but let’s face it: diets are never fun, takes planning and means you don’t get to eat pizza. How is that fun? And going to the gym to get a buff body means sweating (and pain).

Never fear! There is one thing you can do that some experts have found can have health boosting effects, and the answer will really make you smile. A spontaneous smile does not take much effort at all but could give your health a little kick in the right direction, according to American positive emotions expert Professor Barbara Fredrickson. Research has shown genuine smiles – also known as Duchenne smiles – can only be brought on by genuine positive emotions.

Remember to never hold back a genuine smile. Smiling helps your health and can show the world you’re having a good day, and let’s not forget smiling is contagious.

The experts at Dental Care Toronto have come up with a few reasons to smile:

  1. Smiling Changes Our Mood. Putting on a smile can sometimes trick your body into changing its mood, so always try and turn that frown upside down.

  2. Smiling Relieves Stress. Stress can really affect you and those around you. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down and feeling overwhelmed.

  3. Smiling is Contagious. A smile can light up a room and helps change the mood of others. Smile more and it makes you a magnet to other positive people.
