If you feel that you have an unattractive smile, you probably don’t smile very often. Perhaps you make a conscious effort to avoid smiling in social and professional settings.
Do you think frequent smiling has a meaningful effect on your life? You bet it does.
In addition to simply making us happier, smiling benefits our quality of life in a multitude of ways.
1. Look Younger and More Attractive
It doesn’t take a scientific study to verify this fact. No matter your age, you always look better with a smile on your face.
2. Smiling Reduces Stress
When you smile, your brain releases feel-good chemicals that reduce your stress level.
3. Smiling Advances Your Confidence
Who doesn’t want to tap into more self-assurance?
4. Smile For Success
Researchers have demonstrated several ways smiling can improve the chance of a positive outcome in personal and professional pursuits. These benefits stem from the fact that smiling influences your behavior as well as the behavior of the individuals with whom you interact.
5. Help People Trust You
Genuine smiles that involve the mouth, cheeks, and eyes, convey honesty and trustworthiness.
