When someone pulls out a phone or camera to snap your picture, do you cringe? Do you find a reason to disappear suddenly? Do you not smile or smile with your mouth closed?

Smiling Is Good for Health
Why is smiling good for your health? According to researchers, smiling and laughing are good for you because they have significant mood-boosting benefits. Smiling and laughing can also reduce anxiety, depression and feelings of stress.
Smiling and laughing improve your mood by triggering endorphins, the hormones that make you feel good and happy. These endorphins also boost your immune system, reduce pain and help calm inflammation.
Research into the benefits of laughter and smiling has shown benefits for some health conditions, including heart disease; laughing and smiling reduce fat levels and cholesterol buildup in the heart.
Additional studies have also shown that these actions can reduce your blood pressure for 24 hours – a whole day!
Fake It Till You Make It
If you don’t feel like laughing or smiling, fake it. What? Why? Some studies into the benefits of smiling say that making yourself smile even when you don’t feel like it can elevate your mood. Some research has also suggested that faking a laugh or a giggle can help your brain feel happier when you’re mad, sad or stressed.
Smiling and laughing also makes you more approachable, which attracts people to you and improves or builds relationships.
