Reasons To Showoff Your Smile

Today is World Smile Day where we are encouraged to “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile”! So it’s time to give others great reasons to smile.

Facts About Smiling

Did you know that the simple act of smiling does far more than just make you look friendly – it can change your life and the lives of those around you. Here are 10 reasons why you should flash your pearly whites more often:

  1. It boosts your immune system
    Smiling changes the chemistry in your body. Numerous medical studies have found smiling to lower heart rate, steady breathing and relax the body, which results in a stronger immune system.
  2. It changes your mood
    Psychologists have found if you grin for 60 seconds, no matter how fake or forced it feels, it releases serotonin which tricks the body into making you feel happy again.
  3. It lowers your blood pressure
    As you smile, endorphins go up and blood pressure comes down. Those who have monitored their blood pressure both before and after smiling show a measurable difference.
  4. It gives you a natural high
    Rethink saying thank you with chocolates. According to The British Dental Health Foundation, a loving smile can produce the same emotional response as eating 2,000 chocolate bars!
  5. It melts hearts
    Several studies have found that a long-onset smile (0.5s onset) is seen as more authentic and flirtatious, and is perceived as more attractive, trustworthy and less dominant.
  6. You’ll be remembered
    Flash those pearly whites in your next interview. If you are smiling, you are three times more likely to be remembered than a person who is displaying negative or neutral features.
  7. Smile your way to success
    People who smile are more likely to get a promotion. Numerous studies have found a smile plays an important part in the physical attractiveness stereotype. Furthermore, psychological research has shown that attractive people are perceived as more successful, intelligent, and friendly.
  8. You’ll look younger
    Smiling is a natural facelift! It plumps up the cells in your skin and gives you a radiant glow. In fact, a study conducted by Orbit Complete found that 69 per cent of people find women more attractive when they smile than when they are wearing makeup.
  9. And live longer
    When you are smiling, it’s difficult not to be positive. And a positive attitude has been shown to increase life expectancy. Researchers at Columbia University found happier people were less likely to develop heart problems.
  10. A quote to smile about
    “A smile costs nothing but creates much. It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give. It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.” – Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People.
