Smiling can make you healthier and live longer, says the findings of a recent research of researchers.
Yes, a team of researchers has noticed in their study that smiling can efficiently help in reducing the levels of stress from the body and also calms the heart rate while performing any difficult tasks.
Ms. Tara Kraft from the University of Kansas, was also among the team of researchers ran the study. She said that "Age old adages, such as 'grin and bear it' have suggested smiling to be not only an important nonverbal indicator of happiness but also wishfully promotes smiling as a panacea for life's stressful events".
She added that with the study, the researchers aimed to find out all the real health-relevant benefits from smiling. Prior running their study, she and Dr. Sarah Pressman divided all the smiles into two categories, one, standard smiles, which involves only the muscles around the mouth in the procedure and second, genuine or Duchenne smiles, which involved the action of muscles around the mouth and eyes too.
After examining different smiles over 169 participants from a Midwestern university, they noticed that participants with Duchenne smiles reported lower heart rate levels after recovery from the stressful activities.
