Have you ever heard the saying, “fake it till you make it”? Well, it turns out, that adage might actually carry some scientific weight. We’re here to share a fascinating fact – even a forced smile can positively impact your mood and overall well-being.
Research suggests that the simple act of smiling, whether genuine or not, can send signals to your brain, releasing feel-good neurotransmitters like endorphins and serotonin. These neurotransmitters can help reduce stress levels and uplift your mood. So, when life throws a curveball, remember, a smile might just be your secret weapon to turn things around!
Smiling not only improves your mood, reduces stress, and releases endorphins which helps with pain relief, but it’s also a key step in the Oxycise! Breath!
When you Oxycise!, pull the corners of your mouth back into a big smile while you inhale. It helps open the nostrils for better breathing, and it exercises and gives definition to your face muscles. But best of all, it’s a reminder of how great you feel for taking control of your body, and the confidence you feel in your wellness journey!
So, go ahead, smile a little more, even if it’s forced at first. You might find that the act of smiling can truly brighten your day.
