On average, people who smile a lot enjoy better health, live longer and have better marriages.

It's good to smile even if you don't feel like it; your brain will release endorphins and other feel-better hormones anyway. :)

(although I don't think I'd feel happy after eating 2000 chocolate bars, unless it was distributed over a lifetime, perhaps) :D

Sure smiling is good for you. I usually don't get many chances to smile until I come in in the evenings but I do know it's good for you!

Smiling Makes Us Feel Good

Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural painkillers, and serotonin. Together these three neurotransmitters make us feel good from head to toe. Not only do these natural chemicals elevate your mood, but they also relax your body and reduce physical pain.
