MENTAL HEALTH MONDAY!
This week, please enjoy CAP Coordinator, Ms. Jamie Tesoro’s morning announcement about Smiling.
Smiling--A facial expression in which the eyes brighten and the corners of the mouth curve
slightly upward. When someone smiles, it is understood that happiness or pleasure is felt. Smiling is important because it can offer a mood boost to our minds and our bodies.
Research has shown that smiling helps our bodies release cortisol and endorphins that provide many health benefits. Today when you speak to others whether it’s online, on the phone, or in person, make a conscious effort to smile. As you go about your day today, smile--even if there is no reason and it has to be deliberate. Smiling is contagious. You may be surprised by how it may brighten your day and encourages cheerfulness in others too! 😃
If you need to talk to someone about how you’re feeling, 2NDFLOOR is a confidential and anonymous helpline for New Jersey's youth. They are here to help you find solutions to the problems that you face at home, at school, or at play. If you need to talk about an issue or problem that you are facing, please call or text 888-222-2228.
