BENEFITS OF SMILING
Have you ever seen someone smile and then automatically found yourself smiling as well? Turns out, the phrase “Smiling is contagious” has been proven to be true. A simple smile can make someone more attracted to you or even lift your own spirits as well.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants will restore your teeth and allow you to experience the many benefits of smiling.
The next time you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed, try forcing a smile. It’s likely that even just the action of smiling will lift your spirits and reduce your stress. This is because the naturally occurring chemicals in your body called dopamine and serotonin are released when you smile.
This theory was put to the test by researchers at the University of Kansas. They had participants perform multiple tasks while smiling. The results showed that people who smiled during these activities had lower heart rates than those who didn’t.
Naturally, people enjoy being around happy and positive people. Often times we feed off of each other’s moods and emotions. Smiling makes you at least appear to be happy, even when you’re not. Having a beautiful new smile makes you want to smile more around others and even meet new people.
Since a smile is one of the most important features when making a first impression, you may find yourself going on more dates and creating lasting, and happy relationships.
Experience Career Growth
When you smile around others, it shows that you’re confident in yourself. One of the biggest factors that employers consider is your smile and attitude. If you have a beautiful smile that you show off during an interview, they’re likely to admire your positive attitude and potentially hire or promote you.
Elongate Your Life
There are also a variety of health benefits that come with smiling. The simple act of smiling is known to lower blood pressure and boost the immune system, allowing you to live a longer and healthier life.
A smile can not only make you more relaxed but it can ease physical pain as well. Since both stress and pain can take a toll on your health, flashing a grin can help release natural neurotransmitters to improve your health.
