Monday is a day of mixed feelings. While for some, it is the most dreadful day because they have to go back to all that work the weekend made them forget. For some, it is a new time to start all over. Monday is also one of the most productive days of the week.

Rather than see it as grumpy day, why don’t you smile and laugh all your worries away and rightly so because of these benefits:

Smiling Relieves Stress

For every time you smile, your brain releases dopamine, endorphins (natural pain reliever) and serotonin. These neurotransmitters wade off stress and relieve you. It also aids in lowering blood pressure.
A smile also releases serotonin, an anti-depressant.

You Appeal To People

No one wants to be around a grumpy person. Staying around someone who smiles can immediately boost a person’s esteem and make a person feel wanted. Studies have also shown that people are more attracted to people with a smile on their face. It also makes you look sincere to others.

Smiling Affects People’s Mood

Whether it is anger, sadness, laughter or a smiling face, science has shown that people mimic others in a conversation especially when they are paying attention. This means that a person’s mood and expression can affect another.

With these benefits, why don’t think good thoughts and smile your way through the day? After all, it is just the beginning of another week of greatness.
