Did you know that smiling and laughing often is actually very good for your health? It’s true! That’s part of the reason why the team at Jordan Dentistry enjoys our work so much. We are not only transforming teeth, but also contributing to our patients’ health!
An authentic laugh evokes the same euphoric response as pain-relieving drugs. Study after study proves that engaging in activities that make you laugh boosts the immune system and reduces physical tension. Laughter also activates something in our brains that helps our memories. That explains why you can remember funny lines from a movie but not the items on your grocery list.
Take a moment to discover the benefits of smiling and laughing, so that you can improve your quality of life:
- Make More Friends – When you smile, people will feel more comfortable approaching you to talk or hang out. Consider the quote, “A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.” Who knew you could befriend someone with a simple smile?!
- Keep You Healthy – When you laugh, you are increasing immune cells and antibodies. These particles fight infection and prevent diseases. So, along with your apple a day, you can laugh and smile all day long to boost your health.
- Enhance Your Mood – After having a good belly laugh or smiling more, do you feel happy for a while afterward? That’s because laughter and smiling releases endorphins, which are feel-good hormones! These endorphins negate any negative emotions and allow for positive emotions to flow.
- Increase Productivity – When you’re in a good mood, you will likely laugh and smile much more than if you’re upset. This allows you to be more productive and get your work done. Your boss will be happy and so will you!
