864 STRONG – You Matter.
A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
“Light a candle instead of cursing the darkness.”
Smiling Is Good For Your Health
One study out of the University of Kansas found that intentional smiling can improve not only your mood but your body’s stress response by activating the release of neuropeptides. Aside from being an obvious stress release, smiling has been found to lower blood pressure and improve immune function.
