The power of chocolate to you!

So, the power of laughter to heal is well known…But a simple and sweet smile has some astonishing superpowers, too. Researchers in Britain used MRIs to examine the power of smiling–and they found that when we lift those corners of our mouth, that our brains have the same chemical high that we’d get from 2000 bars of chocolate! Or, amazingly, from receiving $25,000! 

And a study out of Munich found that the act of smiling can make you feel good when you’re feeling poorly. Regardless of our circumstances, the brain’s “happiness circuitry” gets an astonishing activation when we smile! 
If you want to experience greater joy in your life, and more reasons to smile, you might greatly benefit from some life coaching. Visit Awakeningshealth.com to find out more.
