08 Aug Get your smile on!
How many times a day do you think you smile? 10? 50? 500?
The average person is believed to smile about 20 times a day, although the happier among us could get up to 50 times. It seems we smile less and less as we get older – as children, our number of daily smiles could reach closer to 400!
Did you know that smiling is good for your health?
It’s a shame that we don’t all do it more as smiling is thought to bring with it several health benefits. For a start, it can help to reduce stress and anxiety by releasing endorphins (chemicals) that make you feel happier and more confident. Smiling can also strengthen your immune system by making your body produce white blood cells to fight illnesses.
From a social point of view, smiling is believed to make you more approachable, more attractive and seem more trustworthy.
There are many reasons why we might not feel the need to smile too often, such as stress at work, a lack of sleep or other external influences that cause concern. Another common reason for not smiling is that we don’t like the look of our teeth. Unlike other factors that may be outside our control, our teeth, we can do something about.
