Just smile and make someone’s day
Many see smiling simply as an involuntary response to things that bring you joy or laughter. A smile is something that gives you immense happiness. While this observation is certainly true, what most people overlook is that smiling can be just as much a voluntary response as a conscious and powerful choice.
Countless scientific studies have confirmed that a genuine smile is generally considered attractive to others around us. Remember we are talking about genuine smiles rather than fake ones. Smile can have huge impact on your moods too. Still others have found a strong link between good health, longevity, and smiling. Most importantly, studies have shown that just the act of smiling whether the result of real joy or an act, can have both short- and long-term benefits on people’s health and wellbeing.
Here, are top 5 reasons to wear smile everyday!
1. Smile makes us attractive: We are naturally drawn to people who smile. There is a real physical attraction factor linked to the act of smiling. Not surprisingly, more severe or negative facial expressions like frowns, scowls and grimaces actually work in the opposite manner, effectively pushing people away. Instead, use the attraction power of your smile to draw people in. Just smile!
2.Smile beats the stress: Undoubtedly, stress is a silent Killer. It can ruin our entire life. Smiling not only helps to prevent us from looking tired, it can reduce stress too. Believe it or not, smiling can reduce stress even if you do not feel like smiling. When you are stressed, take the time to put on a smile. You and those around you will reap the benefits.
3.Smiling can also boost your overall health: The act of smiling actually helps the human immune system to function more effectively. It is thought that when you smile, immune function improves because you are more relaxed (thanks to the release of certain neurotransmitters). Boost your immune system through smiling right now.
4. A smile can lower your blood pressure too: When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. Give it a try if you have a blood pressure monitor at home. Sit for a few minutes, take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. You will definitely note a difference.
5. Smile makes you feel successful: Studies have shown that people who smile regularly appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and are more likely to be approached. Try putting on a smile at meetings and business appointments. You might find that people react to you differently.
