Did you know that frowning can negatively affect more than just your mood?

When you frown, you are negatively impacting your internal organs by releasing stress hormones into your body, draining your energy and making you feel bad or upset. Frowning also makes us feel disconnected with ourselves and with others, as other people seeing your expression may wonder if you’re a friend or a foe, which you may begin to pick up on. This can cause you to feel isolated and might negatively influence how you feel about yourself.

So how do you prevent this?
