Smile to relax and relieve your pain

The best way to flex your muscles is to smile. It triggers these feel good chemicals in the body.

Endorphins help to lift your spirits and relieve stress/pain. The “Duchenne smile (picture at the right ) helps reduce pain signals from the brain to the body and simultaneously let a warm happy feeling wash over you.

This smile flexes the muscles at the sides of the mouth and contraction of the muscles at the corner of the eyes, an action known as a “Duchenne smile”.

Experiment: practice this smile every chance you get and now while you watch this video. Let us know what effects it has on your pain and mood.
