The Power Of Smiling

Here is a good resolution for you this week: Smile more.

I know that sounds condescending but research shows that smiling is good for stress relief and productivity. Studies show that smiling during a run makes the run easier and smiling during a shot lessens the pain. It also lessens stress and lowers the heart rate.

Incidentally, research shows that Americans smile more than people in other countries!

Fun fact: English speakers say “cheese” when they smile for pictures. Chinese speakers say the word for eggplant, which sounds like chee-suh. Eggplant!

Los Angeles city officials have not said how it would pay for this program. They only said that they would use “various funding streams.”
