According to Dr. Clifford Teich, our always-smiling physician in Bloomingburg, smiling can improve your mood, and here’s why . . .
- When you smile, you draw more air through your nose and restrict blood vessels in your face.
- This cools the sinuses, which cools the blood flowing through the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls emotions.
And more than that, it just feels better to smile!
