Smile to Relieve Pain

When you’re in pain – physically or mentally – there is something very simple you can do to help yourself and you can do it anywhere at anytime – SMILE!  Why is this helpful? Smiling releases endorphins and serotonin.  Endorphins are the body’s natural form of pain relief while serotonin is a type of neurotransmitter that can positively affect your mood.

I know it might sound too simple or too easy, but usually the easiest and simplest remedies are some of the best.  So don’t forget to smile more :)

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”― Leo F. Buscaglia
