4 Ways Laughter And Your New, Confident Smile Are Life Changing
WE’RE SO HONORED TO BE YOUR ORTHODONTIC CARE PARTNER… Thank you. And the smile that we’re working together to create for you will serve you throughout your life. But we also know that we don’t often think about smiling or laughing—perhaps because they usually happen spontaneously. However, they both really do make us feel better—and, studies continue to reveal more of their many benefits.
1. Smiling Evokes Trust
A recent study published in the Journal of Economic Psychology suggests that people may be as much as 10% more willing to trust someone who smiles.
2. Smiling Could Increase Your Net Worth
Some economists suggest that smiles may have real, monetary value! Another study found that smiling waitresses earn more tips (makes sense, right?).
3. Smiling Lifts Your Spirit And Those Around You
Life is full of ups and downs. Smiling can reduce distressing emotions and be an invaluable tool in moving forward with our heads held high. And equally important, grins and chuckles can calm and comfort those around us. Here’s an example of how someone else’s smile (laugh) can lift YOUR day… We dare you to watch this video without smiling:
4. Smiling May Help You Look Younger!
That elusive fountain of youth may not be found in surgeries or potions—rather, a study suggests that the path to looking younger may be found through our smiles.
