Why does smiling make you feel good?

Each time you smile, you throw a little feel-good party in your brain. The act of smiling activates neural messaging that benefits your health and happiness. Smiling activates the release of neuropeptides that work toward fighting off stress, releases the feel-good neurotransmitters — dopamine, endorphins and serotonin, lowers your heart rate and lowers blood pressure.

The endorphins also act as a natural pain reliever which are 100-percent organic and without the potential negative side effects of synthetic concoctions. 
We dare you to pause, think of the funniest thing you have seen all week and then chuck on a big smile. #yourwelcome #smile #thetonik
