Why Smiling Is the Best Remedy?


I still remember when I was a child, my papa used to quote one line after every lesson “Beta (Son, although I am his daughter) always keep smiling, it will solve half of your problems”. Now I smile so much that people recognize me with my smile and laughter. After getting admission in the medical college, I got to know how right my father was. Smiling is really the best medicine. It has many positive social, mental and physical effects. It is also a Sunnah (anything that was practiced by our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW).


When the body is undergoing stress, it releases cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that prepares the body for coping that stress. My second year Physiology teacher, Doctor Gulafshan, called this hormone as “The first breakfast of our body” as the primary function of this hormone is to increase the blood sugar level. Its level is increased in the second half of the night and then 20 minutes after awakening to cope the anticipated stress that can be caused by the low glucose level. Researches have proved now that smiling and laughing reduces the level of cortisol and fights anxiety, stress and depression.


When you smile, your body triggers the release of endorphins. Endorphins are the hormones that are released from the body during exercise, excitement, pain, stress, consumption of spicy food, love and orgasm and they work as opiates. They reduce the pain and induces a feeling of well-being.


Cortisol is also responsible for reducing the immunity of the body. That is why a person who is always in stress, is more prone to develop different infections. Smiling reduces the stress hormone and this way boosts your immunity.


Sometimes the only solution is to keep your focus away from the problem. Smiling do that so easily. It distracts your focus away from anger, guilt, problem, stress, tension and the other negative thoughts and gives you positive energy to stand those problems.


I don’t know about others but the first thing I notice in a person is the “smile”.  Smile makes you look so beautiful so always keep a smile on your face and stay happy. 🙂
