Grin for Good: Why smiling is healthy for you

If you’re not grinning like a Cheshire cat at least once a day, you’re doing something wrong. Smiling is one of the simplest ways to boost your mood, increase your self-esteem and project positivity to others. Dazzling teeth or not, forcing yourself into a grin can have a huge impact on your overall health. Not convinced? We’ve got together a few reasons why smiling is healthy for you.

Increased self-confidence 

The uplift in confidence you receive from a few smiles can be truly transformative. Whether you’re out with new people or taking part in an important meeting, smiling can give your self-esteem a huge boost, while projecting an image of success. That positivity is contagious too - making people feel more comfortable to be around you.

Lower blood pressure

Smiling doesn’t just have a positive effect on your mental state. Consistent smiling can actively lower your blood pressure by immediately increasing your heart rate and oxygen consumption. When your heart rate drops, your muscles will relax and blood pressure will decrease. All of this means that even smiling for small portions of the day can lower your chances of heart disease!

Pain relief

Regular smiling releases endorphins, which is the body’s feel-good chemical. However, if you’re up for some add-on benefits, why not try a little chuckle too. Laughing can offer some soothing pain relief to help you recover from a tough workout or a nasty headache. It turns out laughing really is the best medicine! 

A youthful look

Smiling has been proven to make us seem more attractive and give us a youthful aura to other people. According to a recent study, when a group of participants looked at photos of smiling people, they were more likely to guess they were younger than if they weren't smiling. If you’re worried about that first date - a natural smile can do wonders. 

Stress relief

After a stressful day at work, nothing improves your mood more than smiling. If you’re not regularly letting that stress go, the build up can cause some serious medical problems in the long term. Whether you’re catching up with your friends or watching your favourite show, smiling and laughing is the best stress reliever. The best part? Smiling doesn’t cost a penny.

A smile is worth a thousand words - that’s why we think it should be the best it can be. Our teeth whitening treatments have the ability to transform your smile with a quick, simple and durable surgery. Contact us today for more information about our remarkable treatments.
