Lots of times we’re told that when you really want to feel something all you need to do is fake it. But what if we told you this wasn’t true? A new study has found that fake smiling can’t play a role in making you happy even if you want to be happy. In the 1980s a study had come to the conclusion that if one flexes their facial muscles to smile and if the brain recognises it, then it might help the person feel happy. However, when scientists tried to replicate the study, they were unable to get the same results.
