Science Says Yes to Taking That Selfie

February 6, 2017

“Selfie” is defined by Merriam-Webster as an image of oneself taken by oneself using a digital camera especially for posting on social networks. In fact, back in 2013 “selfie” found itself Oxford dictionary’s word of the year, and coincidentally a permanent place in pop culture history and on the tip of almost everyone’s tongue.


Last year, a study from University of California, Irvine, stated that taking more smiling selfies increases your chances of happiness. Using a small test group, students documented their mood at the time that they took their selfie while they were smiling; a shot of something that made them happy and a photo of something that they thought would make someone else happy, and then send to that individual. Coincidentally, our own studies show that winning also produces similar results, and greatly increases your chance of happiness as well as that of those around you.
