When you are happy, your body will produce hormones that will make you feel better. Your brain and body thinks that if you smile then you are happy. So smile and your body will release hormones to trick your body into being happy. The hormones are dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins. Smiling will help give your body feel happy and give you an emotional high. So think about something that makes you happy and smile about it. You can always do a half-smile that the Buddhists teach. Learn to smile at people when you talk to them. It makes them feel happy too.
- Happiness is an emotion that can not only positively affect your mind, but also your body.
- You should work on smiling more often simply because it will make you feel happier, and people you interact with more happy.
- If you are feeling emotional pain when you smile, let it happen so you can find your inner peace.
“Happiness can literally make you feel lighter inside, a bit like having some helium in your body.”
