12+ Facts That Will Make You Smile And Hopeful For The World

Happiness is really contagious. That is to say, it can be caught from the people around you. Which means, if you surround yourself with people who are happy, then you’ll get an ounce of that happiness. Research suggests that according to a 2008 study in the British Medical Journal, people who were surrounded by many happy people were more likely to become happy in the future.

Also, it is said that smiling improves not only your mood but your physical health too. Meaning, your body tends to be more relaxed when you smile, and this contributes to good health and a stronger immune system.
