Friends …

 

Always try to Keep smile on ur Face as it has Many More Merits to Our Health…

 

 

 

A smile is a facial expression that is created through the flexing of facial muscles, predominantly located around the eyes and mouth, but often also including muscles located around the cheeks and brow, depending on the type of smile.

Evidence suggests that smiling occurs in all human beings at some points in their lives, regardless of our culture, and can actually begin before childbirth. Natural smiling and laughter occurs when we are genuinely happy and relaxed and we now know that this process has therapeutic health benefits, including the release endorphins from the brain that can reduce pain and which provide a sense of well-being. Smiling and laughing has also been linked with the reduction of stress, the prevention and cure for depression and also encouraging open-mindedness and freer thinking.

As humans we naturally love to laugh, on average adults laugh 15 times everyday. Laughing feels so good, can you remember the last time you laughed uncontrollably, tears running from your eyes and an inability to stop yourself – how good was that? And, I bet you are at the very least smiling now, just thinking about it.


As an extension of the smile, laughing helps you to release hormones beneficial in the prevention of disease and illness.

Each time you laugh you literally improve your health, and the more you laugh the more your feel like laughing and the easier laughing becomes for you. Have you met people who laugh regularly, notice whether they look fresh, healthy and alive, most of them will do.


Why do we laugh?


Scientists have confirmed that there is no specific area in the brain that is responsible for laughter. We laugh for many reasons, because we find something funny, because we feel superior to someone, because a situation worked out well, at ourselves for messing up, because we have avoided danger and because we want to fit in. Whatever the reason for our laughter, however honourable, laughter has the same therapeutic benefit.

Laughter happens when we interpret something, a person or a situation in a certain way, because we are following the rules of human nature or conversation, and then something else happens, throwing us and causing amusement. Or sometimes when we are expecting disaster, and then the impending danger is avoided, this will cause a release that often occurs in the form of laughter.

Becoming happier


Smiling and laughter, the symptoms of happiness and joy, have such widely accepted health benefits, both physical, emotional and for general well-being that we should be doing all that we can to increase our happy levels.

You can try to laugh more, at first it may seem forced, but you can genuinely find humour all over the place, and as we have identified, humour doesn’t have to come from the most honourable sources, if you find something funny, then find it funny and smile and laugh at it.



Try to laugh at least 15 times a day, if you watch television try and watch more comedy, listen to light-hearted radio and read less serious materials and you will notice the benefits within just a few days.

Smiles and Laughs really are a tonic for the sole, there really are no downsides, they are something you can do naturally, they cost nothing and they can be shared or kept to yourself, have a laugh when you can and feel the benefits unfold.

Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles.

I have a tickle in my brain.  And it keeps making the corners of my mouth point toward the heavens.

All the statistics in the world can't measure the warmth of a smile.
