How Smiling Affects Your HappinessFeeling down in the dumps? Looking for a simple solution to feeling happy again? Here at Stormberg Orthodontics in San Diego and La Mesa, our orthodontists and staff want all of our patients to lead a happy and healthy life; which is why we are here to let you know that happiness is only a few smiles away! Smiling, regardless if it occurs naturally or is forced, creates a chemical reaction that tricks your brain into feeling happier almost immediately!

The Magic Of A Smile

When you smile, your brain releases serotonin and dopamine, two complex hormones that can combat depression and aggression. Whether you are feeling under the weather, sleepy, or just plain sad about life at the moment, smiling can uplift your mood in a flash! Science has proven that smiles can also lower your stress, boost your immune system, and even prolong your life. In other words, forcing a smile, even in the toughest of times, can trick your brain into actually believing that you are happy!

Good Vibes Are A Smile Away

Not only is smiling good for your own mental health, but it can be great for others around you! Much like a yawning, a smile is wonderfully contagious. The more you smile during your day-to-day life, the more you are subconsciously convincing your co-workers, family, and friends to put on a smile themselves.

On a scientific level, mirror neurons in our brains are what make our smiles so contagious. These neurons allow us to reflect - or mimic - positive behaviors we observe in others. Additionally, when you put on a smile for everyone around you to see, your peers will want to reciprocate the feeling of endearment that you’ve passed along to them.
