Woman looking at her smiling image on the mirror

2020 has not been an easy year for many but, even in difficult times, we all have been finding reasons to be cheerful throughout the day.

And these reasons are more than just making an effort to look nice.

Over the years, several studies have shown that smiling releases happy hormones, endorphins and serotonin, which actively contribute to making us feel good.  Besides, natural chemicals elevating your mood will also relax your body and reduce physical pain. Double win and double reason to smile.

As we start a new month, I went around and asked professionals, content creators and entrepreneurs from different parts of the world: What made you smile recently?

The morning sunshine through the leaves

“There is a forest close to my home where I have been walking early
in the morning. Watching the morning sunshine through the leaves and the
stillness of everything makes me smile.”
