One of the benefits of laughter is that it can help you tone your abs. When you are laughing, the muscles in your stomach expand and contract, similar to when you intentionally exercise your abs. Add laughter to your ab routine and make getting a toned tummy more enjoyable.
Why is smiling important? Smiling not only offers a mood boost but helps our bodies release cortisol and endorphins that provide numerous health benefits, including: Reduced blood pressure. Increased endurance.
Smiling is good for your health in a number of ways. It can reduce stress, help heart health, lower blood pressure, and boost your immune system by decreasing cortisol in the body.
The endorphins act as a mild pain reliever, whereas the serotonin is an antidepressant.
In fact, it might even be worth your while to fake a smile and see where it gets you.
A simple smile, genuine or even forced, prompts the brain to produce endorphins and serotonin, causing positive emotions.
One study even suggests that smiling can help us recover faster from stress and reduce our heart rate.
