5 Reasons to Smile More

 Smiling comes easy to some people, but for others, it can be more of a challenge. Here are five reasons you should try to smile more, even if you have to work at it.

Appear Likeable and Trustworthy

In an area such as the service industry, connecting with customers can be important. Researchers found that when employees smiled authentically at their customers, they left feeling satisfied with their experience. The employers were also perceived as likable, competent and friendly. In addition, other studies have found that smiles make you appear more trustworthy.

Look Younger and Thinner

Multiple studies have been done to determine if a person’s perceived age is altered when they smile. Although multiple factors can affect this perception of youth, smiling can make you appear younger. It also makes you appear thinner. In another study, participants that were frowning were more likely to be labeled as heavy.

Get a Creative Boost

One study found that smiling, related to happiness, increased the number of solutions to problems that the participants came up with. Another study showed that smiling increased productivity in the workplace. So, not only can you get more done when smiling, but you also could become an idea generating machine!

Lower Stress

When we feel anger, fear, and unhappiness, it shows on our face. It also shows inside our bodies as we begin to produce more of the stress hormone known as cortisol. Over time, this can lead to some pretty serious medical problems. But, when we smile and laugh, our bodies produce endorphins. They work at reducing the cortisol and naturally lower stress. They’ve even been known to relieve pain.

Live Longer

Research pretty consistently reports that happy people live longer lives. One interesting study looked at images of baseball players to determine if the ones smiling in the photos lived longer or shorter than those who didn’t. The smiling players lived an average of seven years longer!

When you combine the reasons listed above, it’s easy to see how smiling makes you happier and in turn can contribute to a longer life. If you’re unhappy with your smile, call us today at 262-264-7711 so we can help you achieve a naturally healthier smile you can be confident in.
