Why is it important to have a beautiful smile?
Confidence: Look Good, Feel Good
Smile definitely goes a long way in making you feel good by making you look good. It’s as simple as that: When you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good, you’re going to be more productive, energetic, and of course, more confident in everything you do. Self-confidence is an essential attitude if you want to move forward in life and there couldn’t be any easier way to obtain it.
From the moment you meet somebody for the first time to the job interviews you go to or even the service you receive for the first time. A Smiley face can make a lasting impression on people. In our overcrowded and highly competitive world, the only way to be remembered is to really stand out.
A smile increases face value a common saying in any profession related to hospitality is ‘Serve with a Smile’. Nobody likes to be welcomed by a grumpy, sullen, grouchy receptionist, be it at the doctor’s or at a five-star hotel. Have you ever noticed that most wall-clocks on display in stores show the time ten minutes past ten? If yes, have you ever wondered why? It is because the way the hands of a clock are positioned at that time make it looks like a smile.
A person carrying a smile when dressed with style and elegance, confident and is treated differently then someone who doesn’t have that rousing aura surrounding them.
There’s nothing quite like a winsome smile for perking you up, as well as those around you.
Study shows smiling, laughing, and positive thinking have been shown to have a huge number of health benefits to both mind and body.
- When you smile or laugh, your body releases endorphins. These are brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters, which make us feel happy. They are also a natural pain and stress reliever.
- Laughing reduces levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, and gives us a quick burst of energy.
- A good laugh can be beneficial to the lungs, boost immunity, and could even burn off calories.
- Smiley, happy people are thought to have more friends and be more successful, by appearing more confident and approachable.
Smile and Relationships
A new study from the University of the Rockies says there’s an easy way to avoid another unnecessary argument with the one you love: Smile.
Research is ongoing into the science behind the phenomenon of smiling, and we are coming to understand more about the role that smiling plays in our own minds and bodies, as well as in the minds and bodies of others,” said Dr. David Solly, a professor at University of the Rockies.
According to the report, “there appears to be a link between smiling and factors such as heart rate, blood pressure, and other stress level indicators.”
A warm, genuine smile tells that other person that he or she is attractive, pleasant, likeable, safe and secure in your estimation. Smiles are so powerful that many long-term marriages and healthy relationships have begun with a single smile shared across a room. According to Facial Action Coding System or FACS Women who have a spontaneous joyful smile or Duchene smile were more apt to get married and remain married and scored higher on tests of emotional and physical well being. Also couples who show loving smiles when talking to each other release oxytocin-called caring hormone associated with bonding and reproduction.
Ekman and Richard Davidson (University of Wisconsin neuroscientist) used brain scans to show that Duchene smiles (a spontaneous joyful smile) activates some parts of the brain associated with pleasure and happiness. They found that people learned how to activate the muscles of Duchene smile, even artificially; they could produce similar brain activity.
Every time you smile, you not only make other people feel better about them, but you raise your self-esteem, increase your level of positive attitude and feel better about yourself as well. You will start to build healthy relationships all around you.
If you are walking around the office with a glum or a negative look on your face it affects office environment in a negative way. Since everyone takes everything personally, if you are negative for any reason, each of your staff members wonders if it is something that they have done personally that has made you happy. They become preoccupied with your mood. They slow down their work and their creativity comes to a halt. If you are negative for any period of time, they start to talk about it and worry about their jobs.
One smile can make all the difference in the world. One smile has the power to release stress, make you attractive, make someone else happy and believe it or not, smiling can actually cause happiness.
Like we score a little more mark in the exam simply because of our neat handwriting. In life too, we gain more marks by a cheerful smile and thereby expressing an agreeable face.
A smile can change your day – “If you’re not using your smile, you’re like a man with a million dollars in the bank and no checkbook.” Life is like a mirror, if you frown at it, it frowns back; if you smile, it returns the greeting.”
The most important investment(s) you will make in life will be in yourself, in your reputation. You will be the reason you either succeed or fail in life. So smile your way to a more successful and confident you.
