Do you try and hide in the back row when pictures are taken? Are you afraid to laugh at a friend’s joke because your crooked or yellow teeth will be revealed?
Everyone wants to feel comfortable in their own skin and they want a smile that they can be proud to show off. If you don’t like how you look, your self-esteem suffers and when you don’t feel comfortable in your own skin, your wellbeing is negatively impacted.
As hard as it is to believe, your smile, or lack of smiling, can play a big role in your wellbeing by affecting your health, relationships and business aspirations. When you smile you feel happier, are less stressed and get more out of life.
When it comes to smiling, we mean it to mean happiness, contentedness, peacefulness, relaxed, and friendly.
A Confident Smile Impacts One’s Attitude
The common saying that the eyes are the window to the soul may be true, but the smile (or lack of one) also gives off some noticeable signals. Those who love their smile have a more positive outlook on their circumstances and on life in general. Their positive attitude makes them more motivated and encouraging to others. People who smile look happier, and friendly. Others are drawn to people who laugh and smile.
A Confident Smile Can Get You Ahead in Professional Pursuits
In business or in one’s professional life, smiling individuals are looked on as leaders because a smile exudes confidence and trust. Individuals who smile are more likely to get a job or a promotion or make a business deal.
A Confident Smile Boosts Your Health
Smiling also helps boost your physical health. The act of smiling reduces stress and tension in our bodies. The reduction in stress better regulates heart and cell functioning, making our bodies more resistant to tiredness, illness and disease.
Those who are self-conscious of their smile and therefore hide it from others will likely not experience all these benefits of smiling.
If you’re ashamed of your smile, you’re putting your health at risk, jeopardizing social relationships and limiting your professional opportunities.
