Why Smiling is So Important

Smiling is So Important

Why smiling is so important is something most of us don’t give much thought to.  Smiling is a natural reaction to something that makes us happy. A familiar face, a good joke, and many other things can trigger a smile. Whatever the reason you may have for smiling, you would certainly agree that it feels good! But did you know that even just forcing yourself to smile has benefits?

Boost Your Health

Studies have found that simply exercising your smile muscles signals the release of endorphins. Your brain will interpret the action of the muscles the same way it does for your natural smile. Endorphins are the chemicals that help us feel good and lower stress levels. So smiling just for the sake of smiling can have incredible benefits on your health and well being!

Enhance Your Attractiveness

Let’s face it, a happy face has much more appeal than a moody one! If you make a conscious effort to look happier, you will have much more eye-catching appearance. Smiling doesn’t just involve your mouth, but tends to highlight your eyes, as well. A beautiful and confident smile could be your key to success in closing business deals.

Draw Others to Your Personality

People who smile a lot are generally regarded as being more accepting and trustworthy than someone who doesn’t smile much. The best way to start any introduction is with a smile! Whether in business matters or social interactions, your smile is probably your best physical feature.

Appreciate and Maintain Your Smile

Your smile is worth more than you may realize. Be proactive about protecting your smile. Practice good oral hygiene to keep your teeth clean, healthy, and strong. Ask your dental hygienist for recommendations on improving your oral care and preventing disease. Also, talk with your dentist about what you can do to enhance and preserve your smile for life.
