At Box of Smiles, we're passionate about generating as many smiles as possible. And guess what?? Smiling is medically proven to help you feel happy and relaxed.
Neurotransmitters called endorphins are released when you smile. These are triggered by the movements of the muscles in your face, which is interpreted by your brain, which in turn releases these chemicals. Endorphins are responsible for making us feel happy, and they also help lower stress levels*.
So, the medics say it.. we need to smile more - FACT!
And it's contagious** so let's all spread a little cheer and smile!

We aim to make 365 people smile in our first year of business (1st March 2017 - 28 February 2018) - a smile a day!
