When we have a beautiful set of teeth we can’t help but smile, but even if your teeth are the best that they could be, you can still greatly benefit from smiling and laughing. Physically, mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually you can help yourself be happier and healthier with a smile. Here are a just a few reasons why smiling and laughing are good for you:
Improved Mood, Increased Relaxation
When you are in a bad mood, no one wants to be around you and you don’t want to be around anyone else, but how can you break this cycle? A small giggle can help trick your brain into feeling happier. Even if you have to fake it or force it, smiling and laughing are good for you and can really help you feel better and that can help you stay healthier too! It is worth giving a try today.
You Become More Approachable
Smiles attract people while frowns chase them away. When you smile you are more approachable and more likely to interact with people. The more you can socialize the happier you will be since humans are hardwired to be social animals. It’s a cycle that’s worth getting into and it is one that can affect your overall health and success in many areas of life.
You Are More Productive
The more productive you are, the happier you’ll be and vice versa. Even if your office isn’t the best and your coworkers are a bit annoying you can make your work more enjoyable and make yourself a better and more productive employee by having a good attitude. Smiling and laughing helps with this and it is also contagious and can spread to others in the office too!
Physical Health Benefits
Beyond mental health, smiling and laughing is good for you in a number of other ways as well. Studies have shown smiling can fight depression, fight anxiety and enhance positive thoughts. Laughing can have the same effect as meditation and can also help lower blood pressure. Many other benefits are associated with joy and relaxation and positive thinking and they are yours to discover!
