Botox… just might make you happier

September 12, 2011

In the category of weird but interesting research comes some research into Botox and happiness.

Researchers studied women who underwent Botox injections in their face and compared them to a control group. What they discovered was that the women who had the Botox work done, generally felt happier. What’s interesting is the reason. The women who had the Botox are physically less able to frown or have a “sour” face.

So, that old adage to smile and you’ll feel better seems to have been confirmed. Or, at least the less you have a frown, the less you’re going to feel down. (rhyming intended).

One small caveat here is that we do not need to have Botox injections to have an effect.   🙂
