What makes you smile…

What makes you smile...

The Wall Street Journal recently wrote an article citing various scientific research, which confirms the theory that the simple act of smiling can actually illicit elevated levels of happiness.

One such study asked participants to hold chopsticks in their mouths while engaging in stressful tasks. Those with their mouths unwittingly engaged in a grin were found to regain a resting heart heart rate more quickly than those with neutral expressions.

So, I now prescribe myself more funny movies, Sunday comics, and ridiculous online memes to keep the smiles flowing 🙂

What makes YOU smile?
