Is there anything more inviting than a genuine smile? We’re not talking about that creepy, “I’m gonna get ya,” smile. But one that comes from the best corners of a person’s heart. Smiling more will not only benefit those around you, but will improve your own well-being.
1. Your Brain
Let’s get into the nitty gritty science of it all. A smile will release neuropeptides which allow neurons to communicate and transfer messages throughout the body. The neurotransmitters dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin creating feelings of happiness.
All of these are all natural pain relievers as well. So smile more and get those neurotransmitters working.
The dynamic duo of eye contact (once again not the creepy kind) and a smile provide people with a sense of composure and confidence. So even if you don’t know what you are doing just smile and maintain eye contact. You also look more attractive to those around you because you provide a sense of calmness.
3. Others Around You
Smiling is contagious. The happier you are the happier those around you will be. Unlike chicken pox, smiling is something that you should want to spread as much as you can! There is some cool science behind this too, it’s called: the cingulate cortex. This part of the brain simply replicates whatever it sees. Because of the connection between humans we subconsciously feel for one another.
So what does this mean? You need to get into Ence Dentistry and get that smile all nice and pretty not just for yourself, but all mankind. Do you want to be responsible for the downfall of mankind? Didn’t think so. 😉
