What Are The Common Health Benefits of Smiling?Your smile has more power than you think. Your smile is a mirror of your happiness, self-confidence, and your oral health. Smiles are contagious, too; whenever you have had a bad day and you meet someone smiling, you end up smiling as well. As such, we will present to you some of the common health benefits of smiling.

Mood Elevation

Smiling makes you look and feel happy. Your facial muscles trigger neurotransmitters into your system so you can feel great every time you smile. Some of these neurotransmitters include serotonin, endorphins, and dopamine. Serotonin and dopamine are natural antidepressant hormones present in your brain. Smiling ensures you produce more of these hormones. Endorphins also make you feel happy and relaxed, so do not forget to smile so your moods stay elevated.

Stress Reduction

Stress is a part of the life of many, but something as simple as smiling can greatly help you go through a tough moment. Smiling causes serotonin release in your brain. The neurotransmitter ensures your heart rate lowers, and decreases your anxiety levels as well. Next time you find yourself stressed, be sure to get something that makes you smile. It could make a difference in your day.

Smiling Improves Your Appearance and Confidence

Smiling has a positive impact on your looks as well. A nice smile makes people more approachable and friendly, and can make others want to connect with you and feel your vibe. Smiling makes you feel younger as well. When many people want to be in your presence, your self-confidence and esteem increase.

Smiling is very contagious. When you find a group of people smiling, you are likely to smile as well. A healthy mouth results in a healthy body. It is important to undertake numerous oral check-ups to ensure you maintain a healthy smile.
