Chosen a New Year’s Resolution yet?
Forget the fad diets and gruelling gym schedules. Here at Icy Bear Dental, we reckon that everyone’s resolution for 2022 should simply be to smile more.
Not only are you more likely to stick to it, the power of a smile cannot be underestimated. In fact, it’s one of the most powerful tools at your disposal. Here we explore just a few benefits of flashing those pearly whites and why you should join our new #powersmilecampaign this January.
The power of a smile
1. It makes you look better
Smiling naturally lifts the face, which helps to reduce lines and wrinkles – making you look healthier, younger, and more attractive. A simple little smile can also make you appear friendlier, more approachable and personable to others.
2. It lifts your mood
Studies have shown, when your smile, your body releases ‘feel good’ hormones – which can lift your mood and reduce stress. And the best bit? The smile doesn’t even have to be real. Whether your happiness is genuine, or you force a fake grin, the same hormones are released. So next time someone tells you to ‘smile and cheer up’, give it a try. It’s actually great advice.
3. It helps you to live longer
Seem too far-fetched? It’s true. Research has consistently demonstrated that genuine, intense smiling is associated with longer life. More work is needed to understand why. But maintaining a happy, positive mood and smiling seems to be an important part of a long, healthy lifestyle.
4. It boosts your health
By strengthening your immune system and helping it to function more effectively, smiling has been shown to have a positive impact on your health. It can also help to reduce cortisol (aka the ‘stress hormone’) – lower levels of which have been associated with a better heart rate, lower blood pressure, and less physical tension.
5. It’s contagious
A smile has the power to light up a room. Not only can it elevate your mood, it can also boost the mood of those around you – communicating warmth and happiness. Our brains are wired to automatically notice, interpret, and sometimes copy other people’s facial expressions. So if someone spots your cheesy grin, they may just crack a smile themselves.
6. It promotes success
Lots of research has found that people who smile regularly appear more confident – and, as a result, are much more likely to be employed or promoted. Happiness and smiling at work have also been closely correlated with greater performance and productivity. So if you’re looking to impress the boss, it may be worth flashing a smile on your way into the office.
