If you swear like Gordon Ramsay, you may find this amusing.

While some still find it unpleasant, new studies have revealed that the use of profanity comes with many health benefits. If people have been getting on you for having a potty mouth, well now this can be your argument to fall back on. From building trust and a sense of teamwork within the workplace, as well as increasing our pain tolerance, swear words might do you some good.

When you swear, you’re honestly displaying your emotions and putting them in a way people can immediately understand. Simpler words don’t necessarily do this all the time.

No one expects to stub their toe, or feel any kind of pain for that matter (in most cases). The unexpected pain that runs through the afflicted area triggers a vocal response in the brain that can lead to swearing. It’s sort of an instinct for humans. Some just choose to utter the sound they’re thinking in to louder volumes, and some keep it in their mind.

Lastly, reiterating a point made above, swearing makes you seem more honest. Some people feel they can actually be more relaxed when they hear curse words being used in conversations they’ll have. Not only honesty shines through, but also a sense of relatability.

Everyone knows of the words. It all comes down to simply letting it out of your mouth.
