Just like Magic, ‘all smiles are contagious’. They make us feel happier, enhance our interactions and even lead to others thinking we are more attractive. A single smile can have a magic effect on your brain through the release of neuropeptides. These neurons spread dopamine, serotonin and endorphins throughout your body, which can leave you feeling calmer and more relaxed, even happy.
According to researchers, people are more attracted to the pictures of those who are smiling and making eye contact. It lifts our mood as well as the moods of those around us. And it can even lengthen our lives.
Your smile is something that should be worn often, so make it a priority to surround yourself with people, places and things that brighten your day. Promise yourself to be the positive, happy person in your group of friends. Be sure to look people in the eye and show them your pearly whites. The world is simply a better place when you smile.
However, your smile can also detract from your overall appearance. An unhealthy or unattractive smile can add 10 years to your appearance. It can be a distraction when your trying to communicate.
