Everyone knows how much better it feels to smile, but did you know that even faking a grin can make you feel better? According to Saddleback Dentistry, your smirk or grin boost the feel good receptors in your brain, but there are also a few other benefits to putting on a happy face.

Research indicates that kids do it about 400 times every day while average adults who usually grin do it about 50 times every day. Typical adults only ever smile around 20 times each day. It seems that as people age smiling is less common, which is really a shame.

Why Smiling is Good for You and Your Health


  • Reduces Blood Pressure
  • Increases your Endurance
  • Makes you More Likeable
  • Reduces Stress and Pain
  • Strengthens your Immune System
  • Makes you Appear More Courteous and Friendly
  • A Smile is Contagious and Helpful

People who smile are more apt to get the job or promotion because they appear, and actually are, more confident. Self-confidence is a real plus when it comes to impressing people, especially those in charge.

Smiling also boosts the endorphins in your brain. You’ll notice that when you turn up the corners of your mouth, everyone else will as well, even if your smile isn’t so genuine.
