Why a pencil in your mouth has a happiness effect

A replication of the study with students and cartoons has just proven the theory to be true yet again. This simple action was very effective. So by putting a pencil in your mouth in a horizontal way, the lips automatically form the shape of a smile. And your body recognizes it.

Simply put, your brain is constantly monitoring all the things that happen in your body. Then it starts to analyze them to judge how you’re feeling. So basically, you trick your brain with a happy expression on your face.
