The Gift of Smiles
January 13, 2019
Hosted by The Express Yourself! STAR On-Air Teen Team
“Whoever is happy will make others happy too. ~Anne Frank “Smiling is a critical component of happiness. It’s a natural response that reduces stress, makes us more attractive, lowers our blood pressure, and confirms our joy, love, and acceptance of others. Since the beginning of time, artists, musicians, authors, and activists have documented the power of a smile. Kenneth Jeon and Siri Phaneendra host a lively discussion on the benefits and importance of smiling. Kenneth focuses on visual significance of smiles and the science behind how and why people react when witnessing smiles. The feel-good neurotransmitters - dopamine, endorphins, serotonin all simultaneously release when we smile. Siri shares evidence that smiling helps us live longer, happier lives. The both read the chapter by Cynthia Brian on The Gift of Smiles from the book, Be the Star You Are! Millennials to Boomers Celebrating Gifts of Positive Voices in a Changing Digital World.
