If you feel that you have an unattractive smile, you probably don’t smile very often. Perhaps you make a conscious effort to avoid flashing a smile in social and professional settings.
Do you think frequent smiling has a considerable effect on your life? You bet it does.
In addition to simply making us happier, smiling benefits our quality of life in a host 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 lower your stress level.
3. Smiling Increases Your Confidence
Who doesn’t want to benefit from more self-assurance?
Researchers have shown several ways smiling can enhance the chance of a good outcome in personal and professional pursuits. These benefits stem from the fact that smiling influences your behavior as well as the behavior of the people with whom you interact.
5. Help People Trust You
Authentic smiles that involve the mouth, cheeks, and eyes, convey honesty and trustworthiness.
