Smile For Yourself and Others

By Tom Herrin

More than likely, no one has to tell you that smiling can help you make friends and make you more likeable to others.  It is a pretty natural assumption.   It is based on the experiences we all have.  It is somewhat rare to meet someone with a smile on their face who is very unpleasant to be around.  It is even more unusual to meet someone with a scowl on their face and still find them to be a pure joy.  It can happen, but first impressions are just that.  Once it is established, it is difficult to change the perception people have.   

It Can Improve Work Productivity

Whether people work in factories, retail, offices, or whatever, they can make a better working situation by smiling.  Expressing joy in what they do can make the task seem lighter.  I worked in education for many years.  Any educator who had a smile on his or her face and a happier attitude would be far more successful with students than those who didn’t.  Any student could recognize it.  People who smile are thought to be considered for advancements at work more often than those who don’t.  

It Can Improve Health

Smiling has some significant benefits to personal health.  It can lower the heart rate, which saves excessive wear.  It can also reduce stress, which has such an impact on so many people today.  A smile can relax the face and body, boosting its ability to respond to outside stimulus that can cause disease.  It helps to release endorphins that can help to dull pain.  This makes it a natural pain reliever.  Many people notice that those who smile seem to find more joy in life.  One study indicated that people who smile more may be able to expect to live as much as seven years longer.

It Can Make You More Attractive

No matter how you say it, people who smile are more enjoyable to be around.  They may seem more accepting.  A smile can be used to indicate a certain empathy with someone who is struggling with something in particular.  It can share frustration or embarrassment that may go along with perceived failure.  Men are thought to be more likely to approach women who smile than those who make eye contact across a room.  It is seen as a more friendly and open expression.  You really have nothing to lose by smiling more.  Try it, and see the results for yourself.
