Smilings Helps Reduce Stress

A smile can help you get rid of stress in your face and life. Smiling does many things from helping you not look tired, overwhelmed and worn down to helping you feel less stressed. This in return will help you live your life and do your job a bit better.

The University of Kansas psychological scientist published a study in the Journal of Psychological Science where 170 participants were told to hold a chopstick in their mouth in three formations, each of them making them smile to a various degree after performing a stressful task. Those that had the biggest smile experienced a substantial reduction in heart rate and quicker stress recovery while those that smiled slightly remained neutral.

Likewise, it was shown that those who had jobs to serve others were more approachable if they smiled. A smile makes individual more likable and friendly. Not only does it make others feel more comfortable it helps the person wearing the smile feel more competent and happy as well.

Put a smile on and have a great day
