A German research on the impact of Botox injections on the emotional experiences of men and women.

In fact, whenever I am stressed or upset, I look in the mirror and smile and my mood changes very quickly, it may seem silly, I know, but it is a surprisingly useful and valuable exercise.

Therefore there is a science of smiles.
Smiling stimulates the production of endorphins.
Have you ever held a pencil with your teeth?
Researchers have verified that by intentionally exercising your zygomatic muscles and orbicular muscles this simple movement immediately makes us feel much better.
It’s as simple as holding a pencil between your teeth and smiling!
So what happens in our brains when we smile?
Imagine you are in a pleasant situation and come across a friend you have not seen in the street for a long time. When we are happy and feel really satisfied, our brain produces endorphins, which are transmitted to the muscles of the face to generate a smile.
This is the beginning of the positive feedback cycle of happiness.
When our muscles contract, they send a signal to the brain, stimulating a response from the system that further increases our level of hormones of happiness, or endorphins and triggering the virtuous cycle of well-being.
In short, when our brain feels “happy”, we smile; when we smile, our brain feels happier.
In English they say: Fake it until you make it! That is: “Pretend as long as you can not!” … Until it becomes real!
Yes, if you want to be happy, smile.
Thanks to the positive feedback loop of the smile, we can alter the path of the emotional processing of our brain to really feel happier with one.
Smiling is contagious!
Is it difficult to make a smile for you? No problem.
You’re with people who smile.
A Swedish study has found that it is certainly difficult to keep an angry expression when you look at people who are smiling at you.
Seeing the smile of others stimulates our mirror neurons to suppress the control of our facial muscles and triggers the smile.
Sorriso actually has a scientific reality!
In addition, the smile also brings general well-being, and the advantage of lowering anxiety, lowering blood pressure and heartbeat.
The level of happiness that a smile can bring to our brain is estimated to be equivalent to that of 2000 chocolate bars, or to receive £ 16,000 (from English study). As a result, it is not necessary to consume chocolate or receive money to be happy.
A simple smile can do it!
