As the shy early spring blooms start to peek their new leaves through the morning frost and we think about springing forward, it might just be time to make March your makeover month! The benefits of a great smile are probably far more wide-reaching than you realize. Studies have shown that people notice your smile most when meeting new people. Your smile also directly projects your confidence. Whether you realize it or not you are making an impression, good or bad with your smile.
Studies have also shown that those with magnificent smiles do better in job interviews and are even more likely to be the successful candidate. So too with first dates. Not terribly surprising. Those who are comfortable with their smiles tend to smile more often and without worry. As it turns out, there are a plethora of benefits to simply smiling more often as well! Smiling more often may even help you live up to seven years longer, according to a 2010 study by Wayne University! How about that?
Could it be because smiling more is linked with a lower heart rate, lower stress rates, and an overall better mood? Smiling releases endorphins–one of the reasons we feel better when we smile.
