Smile does a lot more than simply letting the world know you are happy. It makes you more attractive, look younger and it also has numerous health benefits. Smiling can benefit perception at work, social life and in fact your smile can make other people happy. A smile can go a long way than just showing affection especially health-wise. Flashing just a grin of smile brings out affection, wins you friends and it thickens relationships and bonds of friendship.
Health-wisely, smiling can deliver a host of benefits. People that have heart problems but with more positive outlook tends to develop heart diseases less than their pessimistic counterparts. People who grimaced during an unpleasant procedure felt more pain than those who turned the frown upside down. Smiling boosts the synthesis of a pain reliever found in the brain called endorphins.
Also, smiling makes us more attractive. There is an attractive factor in someone who smiles, and as such, wins a lot of people to his/her side. A lot of people are mostly attracted to someone who smiles than one who just makes eye contact. Smiling goes a long way in making one standout.
Moreso, smiling is used to avoid regret. We smile to avoid feeling bad for not smiling. Sounds weird and circular, but we smile when someone shares a story about even unnecessary things, even if we don’t care. If we don’t smile, we feel regret for failing to do so. This regret boosts stress hormones which brings down our mood. The first response is always to grin a smile when we feel embarrassed or did something questionable. This helps promote leniency in what others think about us or any punishment and breaks the initial ice of embarrassment.
In the same vein, smiling brings about success. Did I just say that? Yes! I did. A smile can appear confident, self-assured and makes you feel on top of your work. Those who smile are more readily approached with ideas. We do trust people when we see them smile genuinely. Trust which is an important part of a work can be built on smile.
Conclusively, the more you smile, the better! Just remember to stash some tissues in your pulse and wipe away smudges for a dazzling smile.
