A week or so ago, there was an article in the Wall Street Journal on the benefits of smiling
. According to the article, "Researchers are finding that wearing a smile brings certain benefits, like slowing down the heart and reducing stress." One of the researchers added, "You can influence mental health by what you do with your face, whether you smile more or frown less."
So, bring your face over to Pooch Smooches and engage in some smiling. No, it's not just dorking around and a waste of time. You're reducing your stress levels!
In order to induce today's smiles, I give you: seven smiling dogs, one screaming pepper, and a chance to win fun stuff.
