Service with a smile could affect your health.
Those who work with the public and force themselves to smile – or even avoid rolling their eyes – drink more often than others after leaving the office, according to a new study by Penn State and the University of Buffalo.
Alicia Grandey, a professor of psychology at Penn State University, told ABC News: "Counterfeiting and suppressing emotions with customers [is] in addition to drinking beyond the stress of the workplace or feeling negative. "
She added, "It was not just a bad feeling that they were reaching for a drink. The more they have to master negative emotions at work, the less they can control their alcohol consumption after work. "
The professor said that "a smile as part of your job sounds like a really positive thing. But it can be exhausting. "
