It Will Be Difficult to Be Lonely if You Smile More

By Tom Herrin

There is little doubt that most people prefer others who smile over those who walk around with a stern face.  Many people are rarely ever aware that they actually have a scowl on their face, but they have simply evolved into it by accident with no ill intent.  On the surface, a smile can brighten a room or warm a crowd.  Doing business with someone who smiles is always a pleasure.  It makes patrons feel better about their experience all around.  What a lot of people don’t realize is that smiling can affect health, work, and acceptance.

It Can Make You a Better Worker

People who smile have probably found a way to make their jobs enjoyable.  I have found that even in the most difficult circumstances, smiling can make a possibly frustrating experience one that is much more tolerable.  I try to smile or laugh when I have problems such as car trouble or other similar instances.  People can find joy in what they are doing if they try.  Smiling also increases the chances of them being considered for promotions or advancements.

It Can Actually Make You Healthier

While it may seem strange, smiling may improve health.  It can slow the heart rate, which helps to avoid excessive wear on it.  It can reduce stress.  By relaxing the body, the immune system is able to react to illness and other problems more effectively.  It can release endorphins that dull pain.  According to one study, people who smile more may add as much as seven years to their lives.  It is even thought to be able to retrain the brain to have more positive thoughts.

It Can Turn People on to You

There is nothing quite like a smile to make people feel connected to you.  A smile may be seen as a signal of empathy with another who may be struggling with some particular event or problem.  A group of people is more likely to try to include you if you come with a smile.  People feel more trusting toward someone who smiles.  Men are more likely to approach women who smile than they are one who only makes eye contact.  A smile can win friends and gain confidence.  Even a fake smile can put you on the path to better social contacts.  It is well worth the effort.
