Would you believe that the highest positive emotion is (:
smiling 🙂 .
It’s true, when we (:
smile 🙂 with about 20 facial muscles, it stimulates our reward mechanism.
How this works is, neuronal signals from the cortex of our brain travel to the brain-stem and from there, the cranial muscle carries signal to the muscle of our precious face.
From there on end, the (:
smiling 🙂 muscles in our face contract, a positive feedback loop which goes back to the brain and promotes our feeling of ding, ding, ding…contentment.
Soooooooo in short, there is always a reason to (:
smile 🙂, find it 🙂
