Why Smiling Is Good For You

Most people view smiling as an involuntary action to things that cause us joy. While this is true, most people overlook the fact that smiling can be a voluntary action that is made consciously. Various studies have shown that the act of smiling can elevate the mood of all those around you.

Besides that, many health benefits have been found due to smiling. Whether the smiling is involuntary or forced, many studies show smiling is good for you. Here are some of the reasons why we at Vita Dental Spring believe you should smile often.

Smiling Makes You Attractive

Naturally, we are drawn to people that smile often. There is a huge physical attraction to people that have a smile on their face. In most cases, the more negative a facial expression is, the more you are likely to push people away. If you find it hard to socialize with people, simply start by smiling. It will attract people to you.

Smiling Is a Great Stress Reliever

Stress can permeate all aspects of our life. In most cases, it ends up showing clearly on the face. However, if you smile, it can help you avoid looking tired or worn out. Besides that, it can actually help to reduce stress. Even when you do not feel like it, forcing yourself to smile can cause most of the stress to dissipate. This will not just help you but those around you as well.

Smiling Can Raise Your Spirits

Sometimes you might not be stressed, but you are just in low spirits. When you smile, it tricks the body, and this can elevate your mood. In fact, smiling activates neural pathways in the brain. Smiling will release neural communication that boosts neuropeptides in the brain. Besides that, mood-boosting neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine are released. Smiling is a natural and effective anti-depressant.

Smiling Is Infectious

Many people have been described as having the ability to light up a room. This can often be attributed to their smiling and general facial expression. Smiling can help others to feel like smiling while they are in a room with you.

The section of your mind that controls smiling is unconscious and automated. Thus, when you smile, others will unconsciously smile and this could life their moods. As a result, they will learn to associate you with positive emotions.

Smiling Is Good For the Immunity

A major reason we at Vita Dental Spring would ask you to smile more often is that it boosts your health. The human immune system functions more effectively if you smile often. It is thought that if you smile, the immunity gets a boost since you are relaxed. When combined with good practices like hand washing and eating healthy, you might live quite long.

It Can Lower Blood Pressure

When you smile, there is a notable reduction in blood pressure. Try it if you have a blood pressure device at home. Just sit for a while, take a reading, and then smile for a few minutes. When you take the next reading, you will notice a huge difference.

Natural Pain Relief

Pain relief might not be at the top of your considerations when you smile. However, there is a link to smile and reduce pain. A recent study showed that the body has natural pain relievers, which it releases once you smile. Hus, if you are recovering from an injury or have chronic pain, watching a funny movie could help you smile. This can help you get through the bad patch that you are going through.

Makes You Appear More Younger

Besides looking prettier, smiling cuts off years from your face. The muscles you use to smile also give you a natural face-lift. This makes you look quite younger, which might have many advantages. For instance, it can help you land the job or even get that romantic partner you desire.

It Helps You Become Successful

When you smile often, it makes you appear more confident. This is a trait, which most employers look out for in their employees. There is a better chance that you will be approached for a promotion. Try smiling at meetings and business meetings. You will find that you will close more deals and climb the success ladder much faster.

More Success in Relations

In some cases, you might wonder why your relations never seem to progress, even though you put in all the effort. It might come as a surprise, but it might be because you do not smile enough. People are looking for someone who makes them feel good. They also want someone who has a positive attitude towards life. If you frown often, your partner might feel like you have no interest in them. As a result, they might not really be attracted to you.


If you have not been smiling enough, we hope that the benefits of smiling that we at Vita Dental Spring have shown you help you smile more.
