A smile is a universal signal. In other words, it can brighten someone’s day no matter where you are in the world. Every location on planet Earth understands the meaning and power of a smile. This power is one of the reasons why it’s so essential for you to have a great smile and use it often. In this article, I’m going to be breaking down how a smile can make someone’s day and why. Let’s get started!
1. You appear more attractive
Research has shown over and over those individuals who smile frequently seem more confident and happy, making them appear more attractive. To put this into perspective, let’s look at the opposite of this. Do you find someone who is frowning, unconfident, and withdrawn from social interaction attractive? Probably not. Every time you exercise your smile, you are telling the universe to bring more happy people around you. This happiness leads to an overall happy life.
2. Changes the world for the better
As you may have heard, smiling is a contagious activity. Think about it. When other people are laughing and having a good time, you are more likely than not going to do the same (unless they’re laughing at you). A smile can help cure the sadness or depression in someone else’s life. All you need to do is smile. I bet you can think back to a time when a smile positively impacted your life when you felt down. All in all, you get what you give. Start smiling more often and positivity will come back to you. That’s just the nature of the universe. You’ll not only brighten other peoples day but brighten your own as well.
3. Feels Good
As we all know, smiling makes us feel better both emotionally and mentally. Research has shown that smiling often encourages serotonin production, a neurotransmitter involved with how happy we feel. In other words, smiling affects us through a chemical reaction that we don’t even notice. Because of this information, smiling more could ultimately allow you to battle depression and sadness in your life. Smile more, and your brain will reward you.
Just think…if you have dental concerns, a simple visit to the dentist could help you change those concerns to feelings of confidence. According to Brantly Dental, “…new technologies allow us to detect dental concerns at early stages, treat your dental issues with precision, and provide stunning and customized restorations.”
All in all, smiling is one of the most potent signals any human can demonstrate. It is universally recognized and will most likely spark joy and happiness not only in your life but other lives as well. If you need help brightening up that smile, I’d recommend checking out your local dentist. They can clean those pearly whites and provide you with the smile that will light up the world of others around you.
