Today is World Smile Day and our Children and Young People Team have a very important message to share.
The benefits of smiling
• When you laugh, your body releases endorphins. These are brain chemicals which make us feel happy. They are also a natural pain and stress reliever.
• Laughing reduces levels stress and gives us a quick burst of energy.
• A good laugh can be beneficial to the lungs and boost immunity!
• Being mindful of smiling will increase positive thoughts and allow for your brain to reduce negative emotions.
So! Be the reason someone smiles today! Pass a smile to a someone you know and think about how far it might travel.
We know that life can be really tough sometimes and we’re here to help you no matter what’s on your mind. Sometimes you can sort out a problem on your own but if you have a worry you can’t cope with, don’t bottle it up. It can really help if you talk to someone in your family, a carer, one of your friends, maybe a teacher, or you can talk to us.
We help with things like worries about moving from primary school to secondary school, bullying, low mood, negative emotions, family problems, relationships, anxiety and anger.
