Internet truth or fiction: Smiling boosts mood and health. Science has shown that the mere act of smiling can lift your mood, lower stress, boost your immune system and even possibly prolong your life. A smile spurs a chemical reaction in the brain, releasing certain hormones including dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine increases our feelings of happiness. Serotonin release is associated with reduced stress. Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression and aggression. I have also read that when you are sick, no matter the disease or illness you should watch nothing but comedy films. As laughter and smiling helps boost the body in fighting. What are your thoughts!?
